4 of us went out with Captain Eric today and we're not disappointed. First class operation. Eric worked hard all day and put us on fish of all types, a few kept for the table but most off the 100+ returned to fight again. One of the best captains I've ever been out with.

Capt Matt and Capt Keith got us on a variety of different fish utilizing different techniques...exactly what we were looking for! We racked and stacked a mess of Spanish Macks then clobbered a bunch of Specks on day 1. Day 2 we caught... More

Booked a 6 hour trip on the gulf and a 4 hour out on the ocean. Both trips were nonstop action. Our guide both days was Eric. He is extremely experienced, knowledgable, and a fantastic guide. Both trips we were on the fish in no time and it didn't stop between yellow tail, Spanish mackerel, snapper, barracuda. We even hooked... More

We went fishing with Matt last weekend when we were vacationing in Islamorada. We hire fishing guides often, so I feel like we are great fishing guide critiques, and I have to admit this guy was amongst the best! He was so kind and accommodating. It was a windy day and he tailored our experience to keep us our of... More

Matt is awesome! So engaging, hands on and fun! He's great to be around, makes your time on the water enjoyable and knows plenty of great spots. He can put you on just about any fish you're looking for.

First time in the Keys and I was blown away. Talk about having a Captain who not only has 30 years of experience, but is very professional and makes you feel comfortable. I never went fishing and was a little intimidated, but Captain Matt was with me every step of the way and I caught 7 fish that day! Will... More

I've gone out with Bamboo Charters several times now, and with a few different captains. Every trip has been amazing. My last trip was with Captain Matt as he hosted 5 of us in total. If you're thinking of booking a charter there are a few things I think everyone should consider: -Ana is easy to communicate with and always... More

Thank you for your review! Capt Keith enjoys what he does and it shows. Taking families like yours out on the water is a great way to spend the day at work, catching fish and showing people the environment here in the Keys is a blast. We look forward to seeing you again soon. More
