The day was stormy and obviously weather conditions can be difficult. Captain Craig did not really do a great job on explaining how to catch the lobster. We found it easier to work in teams after we figured out what we were doing. He took us to water that was too deep at the first site where we saw 2... More

What an amazing trip. This was the first time my family tried lobster diving. Captain Craig showed us what to look for and how to capture them. He helped my kids in the water to make sure they were successful in their attempts. We had a great time and caught a lot of lobsters! Then we moved on to fishing!... More

Our first attempt at hunting the spiny lobsters in the Keys. Capt. Craig and Mate Greg did all the actual capturing, taught us a lot and we had a great day on the waters off the Keys. The boat was roomy and stable even in chop as we dropped in and climbed out while snorkeling. Highly recommended. If you come... More

First time ever doing a charter trip. Me, my dad and my daughter went out and had a blast. I can't say enough great things about these guys. We got our limit and the guys where very helpful and funny. I recommend them to anyone wanting to do some serious fishing. Thank you so much for a great day!!!

We had a blast fishing with Craig and Michelle of Kingbird Charters. In one morning 4 of us caught 29 yellowtail, 2 barracudas and 1 HUGE bonita. Craig and Michelle went above and beyond to make sure everyone on the boat was happy and catching lots of fish. And the best part? We made the most delicious yellowtail ceviche later... More

This was our third and best fishing trip with Kingbird Charters. Captain Craig provides a fun and productive fishing experience for both experienced fishermen and novices. Once again he put us right on the fish. We caught our limit in just a few hours. We will definitely use Kingbird Charters the next time we are in the lower Keys.

Capt. Doc and his first mate Michelle could not have provided a better half day fishing trip. We had a couple of first timers in our group that caught their first fish within 20 minutes of setting up the chum slick. They both showed incredible patience with our amateur group and compassion with what often accompanies a first time fishing... More

Captain Craig is amazing this was our second trip with him and this time we had our 2 year old with us. He and his mate are extremely patient and made sure we all had fun and with a toddler and 3 teenagers that can be difficult! We will never book with anyone else!!!!

We loved our time fishing with the Kingbird, it was clean, organized and very well run. We caught our limit of yellowtail snapper, a Spanish mackerel and a triggerfish which were all delicious! The captain was awesome and very patient with two newbies. He was very focused on our experience and his knowledge showed with our catch! It's a little... More
