I've been on several fishing charters around Florida. Our captain was by far the most lazy captain I've ever had. Jennifer who books is great. The boat was clean and good working order. This is around a 10 boat company so they have several captains that they hire, not owners of the boat or company. I asked our captain about... More

All of our reviews are researched to find out more about the day - good or bad. This reviewer never let us know directly that they were dissatisfied and even (by their own admission) Tipped the guide well even though (from their account) they were unhappy with his service. So its hard to say if they even went with us..... More

Excellent staff. Reservations have never been an issue. Boats are super clean and tackle is above board. Like the option of dealing with one company for deep water and back country. Easier to make changes should weather become and issue on the deep water. Love being out with Hugh. Made it a point to visit him our second time around.... More

Great knowledge of the waters and fish. Nick was confident and patient -- helping with a wide range of experience. The water was beautiful and the fish plentiful. Ended with Nick filleting two Mangrove Snappers which we grilled to perfection. Highly recommend!

A couple of days ago, friends and I chartered a "back country" fishing trip on Dream Catcher Charters with Cap'n Nick "Hollywood" It was an amazing experience. We caught a large variety of fish and then used some as bait to catch shark. We ended up catching five beautiful Lemon Sharks all in the 5-8 foot range. Nick was a... More
