We went with Captain Dan, Garrett and JJ on two separate 6 hour trips this week and it has been the highlight of our time in Key West. We had never gone on a charter before and everyone was really helpful and showed us what to do. We caught so many fish I can't even remember them all - snapper,... More

Wow! Captain Dan and Garrett did an awesome job! My family and I did a 6 hour charter and had such a great time we did a 4 hour charter the next day. Captain Dan and Garrett were both totally professional, very knowledgeable and just super nice guys. I have been on other private charters before and they made me... More

Capt. Dan and his first mate Shawn are first-class fishermen. I asked Dan to put us on big fish, regardless of species, and he delivered. Fish on with in 5 minutes of getting bait in water. Two ~200lb sharks, multiple ~70lb Amberjack, ~40lb Black Grouper, several Barracuda, an Mutton Snapper. Highest compliment I can give--Dan is good people. I'll definitely... More

I have never deep sea fished before and Captain Dan and his mate Shawn got me on to a 70 lb Amber Jack. My 110 lb daughter in law wanted to catch a shark and they got her on to one -- 8 feet and 200 lb. My son hit it off with Dan and they are planning a hunting... More

Captain Daniel Zier and his first mate Garrett gave us an incredible family fishing experience. Our journey to seek out a private charter started out rocky, but was soon resurrected when we met Captain Dan at the docks (the hunt for ideal deep sea fishing isn't as easy as one would think). We were immediately attracted to his friendly and... More

This was my first experience on a private fishing charter and it was awesome! Captain Dan had the 4 of us in our party in the perfect spot to catch a great variety of fish and a lot of them. So many I can't remember all of the different kinds. First mate JJ is amazing and I couldn't have caught... More

This was my first time on a chartered fishing trip, and it was fantastic! Captain Dan and First mate JJ had us catching fish the whole time. JJ really worked hard to help us land the fish - couldn't have done it without him! We caught a lot of Vermillion and Mutton Snapper, an African Pompano, a Black Grouper, four... More
