I was very disappointed that captain Dave did not return my email to book a charter. I thought from the reviews that his charter fishing trips sounded wonderful.

I just looked through my emails and did not see any that I had not responded to. It is possible that since I've been fishing seven days a week (ten hours a day of hard work), that one did slip by me. Or maybe yours went into my spam folder? As many of the nice people who gave me excellent... More

All you need to know about Dave Perkins is that he is extremely knowledgeable, extremely personable and determined that his clients are going to have the right kind of experience on the water. He works very, very hard to achieve the right level of satisfaction for you. He knows the waters of the everglades like a spy satellite, has X-ray... More

I went fishing with Captain Dave on 2-26-17 and had a great time. We went fishing in the Everglades and I got to see all kinds of cool animals including a bald eagle! We caught some fish but my favorite was catching a 6' nurse shark on 17lb line!! Dave was very knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely be back... More

What an amazing day - we caught a medley of fish: sea trout, snapper, ladyfish, blue jacks (small and large) and to cap it all a five foot lemon shark which was quickly and easily released. Captain Dave is an expert and knows where to get into fish fast. With the exception of two snapper for supper all fish were... More

I booked a half day charter out of Tavernier with Capt. Dave, and it ended up with just the two of us on the boat. I would recommend Capt. Dave to anyone looking for a good fishing experience in the Keys. Conditions weren’t ideal, but I was still able to catch several species of fish I had never caught before.... More

A great fishing trip capped off with a beautiful day! Captain Dave was phenomenal to say the very least. He was friendly, fun and professional. No snook, but we did catch sea trout for dinner, and pulled up 4 shark. We'll definitely book with Dave the next time we're down.
