Ariel and Reed made our fishing trip amazing and successful! From the beginning to the end we felt welcomed and comfortable. I cannot say enough great things about our fishing trip. We immediately got into a school of dolphin and ended our day bottom fishing with amberjacks and snapper. Back at the dock we got to watch Ariel's knife skills... More

Capt Ariel and mate Reed were excellent! They put us on the fish right away. It was on my bucket list to catch mahi in the keys! They made it happened. We bottom fished as well, catching mutton snapper and amberjack. We had an awesome day. This charter will not disappoint! We will definetly do it again.

This made our 4th trip off shore with Ariel. This year he and Reed worked very hard getting us into the fish. They made sure everyone caught fish and had a great time. They are professional, personal and enjoyable to be around. I would highly recommend him for any type fishing. It will be worth you while.

Was out at sea with them 4 days in May 2014. They will not start relaxing till you've caught lots of fish, and big ones. We went off shore, reef fishing on both the Atlantic and Gulf side, as well as Tarpon fishing, always catching fish, and big ones. In my case, I'm talking 100-pound tarpon and 150-200 pound goliath... More

We've spent 4+ days fishing in the Keys with Ariel and Reed. The experience was just awesome! The 6 of us had the time of our life. Those guides were just amazing and made our trip memorable. They knew exactly where to go and made us catch so much fish we couldn't believe. We strongly recommend this crew for a... More

We've fished with Ariel 3 years in a row now and remain convinced that he is the best out there. We took our twin daughters this time and spent 3 days with him and his first mate Reed. Each day was different in weather and each day he was able to work around the challenges from Mother Nature and found... More

Capt Ariel and his mate Reed were excellent guides. Enthusiastic and knowledgable, first we caught huge Bonita's, then yellow tail, 30# grouper deep dropping over a wreck (threw it back as it was out season) and then we chased some frigate birds well past our 4 hr trip and hooked 2 large mahi mahi. Great day on the water!
