Came to Key West on our honeymoon and deep sea fishing was on my bucket list. Captain Hook came recommended and they didn’t disappoint. I told them that we had never been deep sea fishing before and just wanted a great experience. As soon as we spoke to Paul we knew we made the right choice. Fast forward to our first charter and we had a blast. Captain Aaron and mate Jimmy were top notch. We caught a bunch of fish and had an amazing time. My wife and I had so much fun that we booked them again for the very next morning. Well, day two was even better. Tons more fish including a 50″ Wahoo! We ate some fresh right on the dock. I can’t begin to explain how much fun we had. If I could give more stars I would. If you want an awesome, tailored experience, with a great crew book Captain Hook immediately. We will be back for sure!
GREAT Charter Choice. Tell the Captain what type of fishing you wish to do and he is all about making you happy.
I went on a 4 hour afternoon split charter. Most Charters were not interested in Splits but Captain Hook made the effort to accommodate with a smile. There were only three of us and the crew was awesome. The captain took the time to answer any questions on the trip in/out and the first mate was all over keeping us happy. We started hitting Tuna not long after dropping lines and everyone had the chance to land fish until we were all too tired to reel another rod. We came back with ten 24″ to 30″ Tuna to be split between the three of us. I would guess we brought back over 200 pounds of fish.
Bonus – Sashimi with soy sauce and wasabi at the dock while the captain cleaned the fish.
These guys were absolutely FANTASTIC! True, caring, knowledgeable and FUN professionals. We met the crew (Capt Aaron and Mate Jimmy) and owner (Roger) the day prior and they’re just a great bunch of guys who are looking out for your best interest.They asked our preferences in food and drink and delivered the next day. Our group had a bunch of experienced fishermen and the crew took that into consideration, and we learned a ton! Jimmy worked his butt off all day, especially when we had 6 mahi on all at once, and turned what could have been pandemonium into a fishing ballet… we landed all 6 without one line getting tangled up. Jimmy also took the time to explain baiting technique, local topography, how to spot frigate birds (what they mean), and just chatted about life and joked around with us all. By the end of the trip, we felt like old friends. Great guys, great trip! We’ll definitely be back for another birthday!
Great time with the crew of Captain Hook on a offshore fishing trip !! Capt. Aaron had knowledge of the fishing grounds and didn’t disappoint with an abundance of fish. If you want to catch fish in Key West hook up with the crew from Captain Hook and you won’t be disappointed.
My family and I went on a full day trip with Captain Hook fishing charters. We had a blast! They took care of our food and drinks. The crew was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional and alongside of us the whole day. Great experience that I highly recommend! If your ever in Key West this is a “must do” trip!
We went to Key West on a vacation and decided to go deep sea fishing. After speaking with 2 boat owners (who promised that we would catch), we met with Captain Hook. They did nor promise but told us that they would do their best and offered alternatives. Both Jeff and Erin were very professional and friendly. They were very understanding of our lack of experience and patient with our questions. It seemed that they knew exactly where to go and we caught 1 (big) fish each! We kept one that we cooked and released the other. Great experience. Would recommend Captain Hook any time!!! Thanks guys!
Great Job by the Capt and Mate to lead us to Mahi-Mahi heaven. Caught many fish and Jeff did a great job keeping the lines out there. We cooked up our catch for dinner, nothing like fresh caught fish. Highly recommend these guys, you will not be disappointed!!!!!
The owner was very friendly and helpful. The crew is awesome. They work very well together. Best fishing charter I have ever contracted. After our first trip was over I contracted again for another day, before we left the dock. Highly recommended.
I was visiting Key West for a week, and we did the Shark Fishing Excursion through Captain Hook Fishing Charters! It was the most fun and amazing experience, Jimmy was AWESOME!!!!!! We caught 5 lemonshark (nothing less than 5 feet in length), and a 150 pound stingray. I can’t say enough good about the staff and the excursion!!
These guys are great. They got us on the fish quick and kept us on them. Caught the most and biggest in the Marina that day. Going to have a great couple of meals and take the rest home.
