We were scheduled for a 4 hour snorkel and got rained out, but thank goodness Capt. Mike had another day open. It was very windy so he took us to the Gulf side and we had a great day. We went to In beach while the tide came in and Capt. Mike bbq'd lunch for us. My boys were able... More

We came to Key West on our honeymoon and wanted to see and do as much as we could. We had both been snorkeling before but this experience far exceeded our expectations. Capt Mike was extremely laid back and made the experience one to remember. We recommend this trip to anyone looking for snorkeling that is less touristy and more... More

My wife and I decided to try an eco tour with Captain Mike and we are glad we did. We had an awesome time with Mike and his dog "Lizzy." We have not fished that much but Mike showed us exactly what to do and we caught fish. It seemed every 3 to 5 minutes we had another fish and... More

Father/Son outing to fish for 5 hours....have done this kind of thing many times in a variety of places. The vote is in - Captain Mike was the greatest! He knows how to help families make memories. Boys were catching fish, bait, sharks, etc. about every 5-6 minutes. They enjoyed it so much. Then we went to Bistro 31 where... More

I'm very glad you had an overall great experience! Bistro 31 cooked your catch for a very reasonable price, all 35 pounds of fillets - incredible. I very much look forward to taking "your boys" out again, thank you More

Once again, Captain Mike has outdone himself. It was my third trip with Mike, and they just keep getting better. He is an outstanding guide that puts you on the fish in a hurry. We caught numerous different species of fish including many that were excellent on the table the next day, culminating in the 200 lb lemon shark brought... More

Captain Mike was an awesome fishing charter guide. We really enjoyed his company and he took us to good fishing spots. We caught 7 fish that we were able to keep and he filleted them for us. He took us to go snorkeling and spear fishing as well! He has really good prices and we will be going to see... More

I hired Captain Mike on 2 separate charters once when my father was in town and again when my nephew and fiancee came for a visit. Mike is very knowledgeable and works very hard to make sure you have a good time. My kids wanted to learn how to catch bait so that is what we did Mike threw the... More

The family had very good outing with Captain Mike. Captain Mike was very patience, calm and was very good with my 6 year old. The highlight of the trip was that we almost landed a 200 + lbs nurse shark that took us over our time limit. Captain Mike didn't really mind on staying the extra 2 hours to land... More

Eleven outings and five years later, Capt. Mike Theut continues to go that extra mile to insure a good catch. Every trip to the backwaters of the Keys, a new adventure: dolphin encounters, sea turtles, shark, and a wide variety of fishing experiences keeps us coming back! No other guide matches the personal touch that Mike delivers.
