Lynn T, Mar 2021 Verified
Captain Cook was very knowledgeable and a skilled sailor. We stopped at a spot where there were a lot of fish. We caught quite a few fish, mostly grunts( thrown back)and quite a few yellow striped snapper. A large lemon shark came close to the boat several times and we were able to get a good look at him.We were joined by 3 pelicans who did their best to steal our fish as we reeled them in and sometimes succeeded!We were able to take a few back to the hotel where the restaurant prepared them for us. They were delicious!Water was provided and we brought our own snacks and purchased a lunch thru them.The head was unexpectedly nice for this type of vessel.We look forward to going out again next year!
Great day on the water in Key West!

I just want to say that the team and Johnny made this a really great experience for My 3 kids, My 6 years old caught a shark, many snappers and mom caught a nice size Grouper, my 13 year old trolled In Barracuda And caught plenty of fish including my 15 year old and I. We usually fish on our own but the kids wanted the charter experience and it turned out exactly what we expected it to be. Johnny was so attentive that he made sure we had bait on the hood at all times and tried many methods to maintain the fish in the area we fished in. Again thank you for the best experience!
Our Response, Jul 2020
Bianca, we are happy to hear Johnny looked after you all and you had a great day! Congratulations on your catch. We love helping the young ones with fishing. Always fun to see the kids have a great time catching fish. We are so happy you enjoyed your feed of fresh fish and thank you again for taking the time to leave us a review - it is much appreciated and we'll see you again soon!

This was the best moment of our family vacation. captain Jeff and our man Johnny Cakes took great care of us. We would not have changed a thing! The family loved the energy and the stories by both of our new friends. Their focus was on making sure my family had a great time. They succeeded. We would give 10 stars on this experience particularly to the guys from the Stella Blue!

An amazing experience. Captain Cook and Johnny where extremely Knowledgeable and friendly. They helped us catch fish Which is what we went to do, But also made sure everyone was having fun and that we all had bait.Johnny noticed my young son who is 8 years old having a hard time catching a fish and did everything he could to make it happen. It was an amazing experience that my family will never forget and we will definitely be coming back. Thank you Captain Cook and Johnny.

Great trip w/ excellent captain and crew
Christopher S, Mar 2020 Verified
Captain Cook and Little Eddie did a great job providing a group of novice fishermen with a fantastic experience. They had everything we needed and took us to a couple of great inshore locations. We caught a bevy of fish that we were able to take to a local restaurant to have prepared for a delicious “hook & cook” dinner. Highly recommended for a light tackle fishing experience.
Our Response, Mar 2020
Christopher, thanks for leaving a review and giving your recommendation! It sounds like an awesome day. Capt. Cook and Little Eddie are always super excited to get people out on the water to our fishery and show them techniques to catch and smile. Thanks for the great words and thanks a lot for booking your fishing trip on Fish Key West.
