We had a good trip. It wasn't great like so many others have said but was good. Our guide was fine, not spectacular. He kind of seemed like he was counting down the time until we could go in. (Seemed fine with us going out but not really into it). The fishing was good. We had a nice time but... More

Cast and Catch! That's the way our fishing trip went. Capt. Brian took us to the fish. We did the Day of Wonder, which was fun from the start. I highly recommend Dream Catcher Charters if you're serious about catching fish.

We had the opportunity of fishing two days with Captain Steven Lamp for Tarpon. We fished with him three years ago and he put us on Tarpon, so we were very excited to duplicate the experience. Just as our prior trip; Captain Steven didn't disappoint (even though the weather didn't play nice either day... 20-30 mph winds both days and... More

Nothing but great things to say about the whole day. Capt. Tommy took us out right on time, and in no time we were seeing the Tarpon rolling all around us. We tried several spots, seeing Tarpon all around us and had a few close calls, then I finally hooked one. Capt. Tommy is very funny and knowledgeable. Great company,... More

We had the pleasure of spending two days on the water with Captain Steve Lamp. We fished with him a few years ago and couldn't wait for another opportunity to catch a Florida Keys Tarpon. As with our last trip, Captain Steve did not disappoint. He is an incredibly gifted and talented Captain, but I was also impressed with how... More

We had a great day inshore fishing with Capt. Tommy Z. Could not have asked for a better captain. Tommy met us at the dock right on time and reviewed our itinerary and went over all of the safety information for the trip. We knew it was going to be a challenging day on the water due to the high... More

This is a fantastic company. Our trip was postponed due to poor weather conditions but the communication with staff was spot on. I received prompt calls, emails and my deposit back right away. I will definitely re-book with them on our next trip to KW. Also, when we checked into our hotel, the reception asked which fishing charter we had... More

It was amazing! We chartered a boat for an afternoon of fishing (1-7, I think). We all caught fish and my son boated 3 SHARKS! Captain Bryson was kind & explained things so well. He was so positive and corrected mistakes with patience (my mistakes 😏). My husband and son went out again this morning because they had such a... More
