I called Kevin before we booked and explained what we were looking for. He was informative and helpful and we ended up booking a morning fishing trip with him. We had a party of 6 (4 adults and 2 boys, ages 8 and 11). It was raining the morning of our trip, so Kevin called us several times throughout the... More

Took some teenage boys on a Spring Break fishing trip in Marathon. Booked early with Captain Kevin due primarily to the positive reviews on here. Totally worth it. Had earlier charters with other outfits that just didn't get it done due to tough, windy conditions. Most would not go offshore or otherwise cancelled because of the wind. Kevin gutted it... More

Me and my 2 girlfriends had such an amazing time with Captain Kevin! He was so patient with beginner anglers and knows exactly how to teach in a way they can understand, and for the ones who knew what they were doing knew to put us on a big fish to keep the veterans interested. We limited out in a... More

My *new* husband brought me to Captain Kevin two years ago and four successful trips later we came fishing days after our dream wedding. What a great day it was! Our friends visiting from Alaska had the times of their lives. Captain Kevin gives clear directions, is adamant on catching fish, and always provides an amazing day. Can't wait till... More

We went on two half day trips with Captain Kevin during our trip to Marathon from Alaska. Our expectations were all met or exceeded. I would credit this to Kevin's thorough review of our desires and abilities. Our first trip was with my 17 yr old son and myself. The goal was to catch some fish on rod and real... More

We started the morning with an unfavorable current and wind. Kevin kept after until it we found a decent group of fish to set up on. We managed to bring a limit of nice sized yellow tail past the sharks and into the boat despite everything. Captain Kevin's above average efforts turned a grim start into a great day! Thanks...
