The Kay K IV was built in 2002. Air conditioned, well maintained and fast, the K KAY IV was customized to maximize fishability and comfort. We can easily handle up to 6 fishermen in the KAY K IV’s huge cockpit with it’s large live bait well. The experienced crew will guide you to and give you instructions on how to catch Mahi , Wahoo, Sailfish, Kingfish, Tuna and more. Do you want to fish the reef for yellowtail snapper, muttons snapper and groupers? We can do that! How about fishing for something different? Deep dropping (300ft to 600ft) for snapper, tilefish, porgies and snowy grouper; just a few of the tasty deepwater fish species that Captain Don has the equipment and the expertise to catch. Concerned about getting seasick or don’t want to get too far out to sea? Try our patch fishing trip. Lots of action, close to shore and in relatively calm water. We have a clean bathroom, comfortable seating and a large fish box. We also have a courteous, professional, and experienced crew that will make your trip truly memorable.

This was the first time I had ever been fishing offshore, and thanks to Capt. Don's ability to find fish, and First Mate Dave's "never quit" work ethic, it won't be my last fishing trip with Kay K IV. Don and Dave have a knowledge and a passion for what they do, and it didn't go unnoticed by us, nor... More

I've been on many charters in many different locations and I must say Captain Don and First mate Dave are the most professional and the best fishermen I've spent the day with. All 6 of our group caught multiple fish of many species including 2 sailfish. The second coming at the very end of a full day. Many boats would... More

Our family of five (2 teenagers and a 9 year old) had a wonderful time with Captain Don and Mate David. They made it very clear that they wanted us to have a great experience. The boat is beautiful, and we loved sitting up top. They worked hard to give us the best shot at catching fish. And we caught... More

This was my third time fishing with the KAY K IV and it didn't disappoint. We caught our limit of Yellowtail Snappers, Vermillion Snapper, and King Fish and can't wait to come back.

Another awesome experience aboard the Kay K IV charter boat with Captain Don and mate Dave once again doing an outstanding job of putting us on fish, then helping everyone in our party fight and land the fish, according to the angler's own experience level. Everyone on the boat caught lots of fish and we all had fun as well.... More

This was my 2nd time out on the Kay K IV and once again, it was an outstanding and successful fishing trip. Captain Don and 1st mate Dave were great and they certainly know their stuff. Conditions were rough and Captain Don handled the Kay K IV tremendously and found us the catch. Dave is outstanding and a true pleasure... More

I can not stress enough how important knowledge is when it comes to a Mate and a Captain in fishing. Whether you have gone 100 times or this is your first deep sea adventure, Captain Don is the most knowledgeable, hard working, and helpful captain in the keys. This provides for the best fishing experience you could ask for. The... More
