Owner description: Our friendly experienced crew will help you catch fish and have fun on a fully equipped 39 foot Harris Sport Fishing Boat with a full Tower. We accommodate up to 6 anglers with plenty of seating and two fighting chairs. We are committed to making your Sport Fishing trip as productive as possible. We search area reefs and the Gulf Stream for the best fishing opportunities available each day. Sailfish, Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Snapper, Amberjack, SWORD FISH, Marlin, Sharks, Cobia, and other Sport Fish are real possibilities and can be caught on the Sea Horse. We are Sport fishing and it is possible you may catch only a few fish due to adverse weather or possibly no fish in the area. We are located in Whale Harbor Marina Islamorada Florida Keys, mile marker 83.5 next to the Sea Food Buffet. Whale Harbor is a fishing destination known as the Sport Fishing Capitol of the World. We welcome novice and experienced anglers to have fun fishing on the Sea Horse. We encourage you to ask us questions about Sport fishing and the Florida Keys!

My family has booked many fishing charters in Islamorada over the last 20 years and this experience with Captain Rick and Phil last Monday stands out above the rest. Rick understands the many factors that contribute to a successful fishing experience and acts accordingly. He and Phil work comfortably (mostly) together in a professional manner that demonstrate their expertise and enhances results. Their extensive equipment and great knowledge of the waters allowed them to quickly adapt to fish for the Sails, Wahoo, Tuna and Snapper that were our preference. Their explanations about currents, shelves, floating pallets and diving birds were fascinating and enlightening.
We caught a variety of Snapper to supply two great dinners at Chef Michaels. We enjoyed the experience, learned a lot and will definitely re-book around Mahi season. Thanks guys!

Second time out with Captain Rick and he is the best charter boat in the Keys. Great with the kids and we were able to catch some fish to make everyone happy.

My husband and I love to fish and selected an adventure on the Sea Horse based on the rave reviews! We fished over the weekend with Captain Rick and First Mate Phil who were very professional and very skilled. We caught bait for the day within about 10 minutes and then went Sail Fishing which was quite the experience as Islamorada is the only place where sight fishing for Sail Fish is possible. Captain Rick, who also owns the boat, worked very hard to scout for the Sail Fish. We actually reeled one in only because of the quick coordination between Captain Rick and Mate Phil - reminded us of the Belichick - Brady show winning the big game! Impressive! We were the only boat of the day to have caught a Sail Fish and it was a nice 70lb one about 5.5' long. Later in the trip we caught several Snapper and Tuna for Dinner using a variety of different fishing techniques. It was one of our most memorable deep sea fishing experience. We were amazed at how hard Captain Rick and Phil worked to make our experience memorable! We refer to our fishing for the day as Dinner and a Show!! Catching fish is never a guarantee...but on the Sea Horse the guarantee is the Captain Rick and Mate Phil will do everything they possible can to make the experience the best it can be! We will definitely book another trip on the Sea Horse!

Beautiful day on the Sea Horse! We split a charter with a fun guy and had a super time fishing. Captain Rick put us on the tuna, and we had great fun hauling them in! His mate Phil had four lines out right quick, and the action began. Steady action, then a frenzy, as once we had 3 on at a time! Also got a wahoo! Exciting time, and not one fish was lost during our trip. The Sea Horse is a fishing machine! Captain Rick will work hard to put you on the fish and is a great guy to fish with! Book the Sea Horse, and you WILL have a good time and catch fish!
