Full Day Trip (Private)
Wow - what an amazing fishing adventure! We have been on several private charters out of Islamorada in the past, and this was the absolute best. Captain Paul and Christian were very kind, knowledgeable, and overall fantastic. We caught a dozen mahi-mahi that we kept, and released another 1/2 dozen or so. I’m sure we could have caught more, but my family decided to cut the trip short because our boys were feeling a little sea-sick due to the rough waters that day. We were in Florida for a week, and this, by far, was the highlight of our trip. Bottom line - we highly recommend Reef Runner Charters, and will book with them again.

3/4 Day Trip
My family (wife and 2 kids- 13 and 15) took an3/4 day trip Capt Paul and Christian. They were well organized and very knowledgeable. Capt Paul took us to the best spots for fish, constantly on the move for the best opportunities. Christian did a great job of not only managing the equipment in the water but also planning ahead and having secondary rods ready with different baits to meet whatever the need was quickly. They were friendly and made my family very comfortable. This was the first time my kids have been charter fishing and they have both asked to go again. That is the best endorsement!

3/4 Day Trip
We arrived at about 6:30 am and met Capt. Paul. Later 1st mate and 2nd mate arrived and we headed out shortly afterwards after ice and supplies loaded. As we headed out we chased a great sunrise and within a couple of hours hit our first school of mahi mahi. As we brought fish in first mate was outstanding keeping the school chasing out bait. Very busy and very exciting. We had runs thorough out the day and ended up with 18 mahi mahi and 1 black tuna. Cannot express how we enjoyed the trip. Captain and crew were great, helpful (always polite) and answered our questions during the quit moments. The first mate was outstanding, knowledgeable and took care of business professionally. We would definitely not caught what was caught had it not been for the captain and crew. Our group of 4 (two couples) have fished (mainly lakes/rivers) but nothing like this before - truley an experience for us all. Thanks to Captain Paul and crew.
