Captain Kenny is the best, he finds the fish!

I have been fishing for the whole year down here in S. Florida (up and down the coast up to Jupiter and down as far as Miami) EVERYBODY in the industry knows about Captain Kenny and state as fact that this boat is the best.

The prices are extremely reasonable in comparison to other drift boats in the area and the price for the day drift can not be beat (25 dollars!!!) I have caught groupers and snappers big enough to feed me for weeks on this boat.

If you get the chance take a trip down to see Captain Kenny and take a drift, it will be an enjoyable trip.

things to remember:

If you easily get sea sick do not drink alcohol on or before the trip, as well do not eat before or on the boat, this is probably one of the number one reasons why people become sick on boats who do not have their "Sea Legs"

If your staying at a hotel or a place that does not have a kitchen I would seriously encourage you to throw back your catch, its very important to keep the south Florida fishery vibrant, one of the ways you can do this is by returning your catch to the ocean so they may live to reproduce and keep our local waters alive!

Don't forget to tip the mates! I cant tell you how many times I've seen non-locals forget to tip the mates, they work hard every single day and work on tips much like a waiter in a restaurant so its important to pay them accordingly, I would suggest 5-10 dollars per trip. The tips are split so you don't have to worry about tipping anybody specifically.

Drift boats are not for fishing big game fish, it will happen occasionally, but the very nature of drift fishing is to drop your bait to the bottom of the sea and catch fish that live in the lower zones of the ocean. Fish that reside in this area are both fun to catch and delicious to eat: Snappers, Groupers and trigger fish / reef fish reside in the area drift boats target. Don't expect to catch a big game fish unless you are well seasoned and bring your own gear.

Trust the captain!! He knows where the fish are and will find them for you, sometimes nature is fickle, for a good catch make sure that the ocean currents are not running strong (this will keep the bait from staying on the bottom, keeping the fish from seeing your bait, thus keeping fish from being caught)

Overall the fishing experiance on this boat is wonderful and I would suggest anybody who wants to catch fish (ocean conditions permitting) to take a trip with captain Kenny on the Sea Legs

Went night time deep sea fishing with Sea Legs III right after Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaac. Catching was good that night! Captain was very nice to my 84 year old mother, helped her on and off the boat. She loved it so much she went again on their afternoon trip.

Just a few negatives: No air conditioning inside of boat, bathroom door had small gap down left side so privacy wasn't complete. We put our backpack and small cooler in the inside of the boat while we were fishing. Got back to condo and found roaches crawling out of our stuff.
Don't let these small negatives hinder you from going with the Sea Legs III. Just had to give a complete review of our experience.

Even though I threw up the whole trip, I was still able to catch 6 fish and enjoyed myself when I wasn't heaving over the rail. They provide everything you need, (bait & rod), and you can even get a $5 off coupon online. They moved from one location to another to find the biting fish. They will clean your catch for you when you get back so bring a cooler. And remember to tip them!

We loved our trip on Sea Legs. It was a great price and an even greater value. They made sure to move from location to location when the fish stopped biting. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However the bathroom could have used a bit of cleaning.
