This is a professional operation. Very prompt communication, fast boat, and the crew thoroughly loves to fish and it shows. We did the 3 hour trip and we caught plenty of fish. My 4 year old son had a great time! Deck hand was very patient with him and helped him catch a good one. Everything went smooth and we had a blast. We took our fish (that they cleaned and filleted for us) next door and had the restaurant cook it up with some sides and it was delicious. Truly a must do when visiting Marathon.

Captain Greg and Jay provided a really awesome experience! They were attentive and VERY knowledgeable about where to find the best fish. The boat was incredibly clean and felt very safe. All around it was an amazing time! We'll be fishing with them again, hopefully very soon!

We had a wonderful day on the pontoon cruising around Marathon! Daniel was a wonderful captain. He did what we asked and went above and beyond to make sure that we all had a fun time. Thank you!

My wife and I had an awesome experience and such a fun time. Between Greg working his magic to arrange a Captain for us on short notice, to Captain Jake being an all around great dude, we will certainly be going back. Thanks again, Captain Jake for the unforgettable sunset cruise and for snapping some great pics! Sincerely, The Meyer's

We had a great morning out on the water yesterday! Capt and first mate were patient and fun! Our party of 5 (kids 12, 9 and 5) all had a great time and we caught lots of fish including a giant grouper! We took the fish home for dinner and walked away with great memories. We will be back—for a longer trip next time!

Our family of 5 had a great morning fishing yesterday! Meeting the need of kids who are 12, 9 and 5 (and their parents) is no easy talk. There were zero complaints and a whole lot of fun! We caught lots of fish including a giant grouper which we needed two people to haul in the boat! Capt. and first mate were patient, helpful and fun! We would go again - and a longer trip next time!!!

What a great day we had with Captain Joe! The pontoon was super clean and they supplied equipment to snorkel, a float pad & noodles to hangout in the water. The water slide provided some additional fun for the entire family. Joe gave us a tour of the area and brought us to safe places for us to swim. We were having so much fun that we requested to extend our 3 hour tour to 4 and they happily accommodated! I would highly recommend to anyone looking to have a blast while staying in the Keyes!

My family and I booked a pontoon trip with Manic Sportsfishing to get a brief tour and snorkel/swim. Captain Joe was awesome - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. After touring the shoreline, We anchored in 11 feet of super-clear water and snorkeled. We we able to snorkel close to stingrays, lobsters, schools of fish and ocean structures. We highly recommend the trip with Joe.

Well - what can I say!!?? These guys are awesome. Dad here - only one to get sick - SMH - but Capitan Greg had us on the fish as soon as we got out and within a few hours my wife and -2- Kids had -17- keepers. Unfortunately I couldn’t take anymore of throwing chum LOL. I’m sure we would have been in for a huge catch that day. Cleaned and bagged up fish - told us where to go to ship back to Texas and where to go to get our fresh catch cooked for dinner! These guys are awesome - don’t look or book anywhere else!

We had a great time with Captain Justin! My kids were all about fishing and Justin was nice enough to head back to the marina to get more bait for them. Justin was knowledgeable and knew a lot of history of the key. Kids also had a great time sliding down the slide on the boat and swimming. We ended with a picture perfect sunset. Perfect trip! Thanks Justin!

Had a great time reef fishing with Manic Sportfishing. Captain Greg was great and put us on fish right off the bat. Jay was AWESOME. Kept us smiling, fishing and catching. He worked his tail off keeping up with bait, fish, advice and questions from our party of 5. Would totally recommend these 2 to anybody wanting a great day of fishing.

What an amazing experience Captain Justin was able to get us out to the reef even in a little ruff water!!! Had an amazing time snorkeling at the reef then went into the cove and swam and used the amazing water slide! Justin made the experience fun and answered all of our questions!

We were supposed to take this trip in the summer of 2020 but Covid concerns cancelled our trip. Capt Greg was great rescheduling us for this summer. We went out yesterday with Capt Greg and first mate J. What a great day!! They went out of their way to make sure we came back with enough fish for dinner. We caught 3 Toro fish (very rare), a strawberry grouper, and lots of yellow tail. We had more than enough fish for a couple days dinner!! J worked extremely hard to keep our lines in the water. Would highly recommend Manic Sportsfishing!!

Even though I’m itching to get some off-shore fishing in, we have a 4 year old and it just isn’t in the cards for me on this trip. Instead, we opted for a more family friendly experience with the “Party on the Pontoon” charter. The prices were very reasonable, our Captain (Joe) was very knowledgeable of the area and handled our 4 year old’s relentless questions in stride. The pontoon was very comfortable and equally as clean. The built in slide was a huge win with our son. Wife was happy, son was happy, and I look like a superstar for booking an adventure that they both really enjoyed. Thanks Greg and Joe, we had a great time.

Like so many of the reviewers before me, they made this the highlight of our trip to the Keys. We took the pontoon boat with Captain Justin. Very likeable, knowledgeable and easy going. Great with our kids. We were out for snorkeling and a sunset. Super. Hill time. Best customer service piece were the pictures he took of our family and texted us later that evening. I can't recommend this outfit enough.

Captain Greg and mate Jayden did an outstanding job with us. We went out Monday with another charter and it wasn’t so great and we debated about doing another but so glad we did and called #MANICSPORTFISHING CHARTERS. We had an absolute great time and wished we could have stayed out longer and will the next time. They don’t just put you on the fish, they teach you technique and explain what and what not to do in a fun way. When visiting The Keys and you want to catch some fish, call Greg and Jayden and you’ll be glad you did.

The crew worked very hard to get us into the fish. I would have given 5 stars, but the comfort of the boat was an issue to us. I sat on a 5 gallon bucket for 4 hours and one of us sat on an ice chest as well. No cushions and we are paying for that still. It was very rough so standing was not an option. You have to wear a mask if you go inside the boat, so outside was it: If there are just 2 people there is a bench seat that has a back and cushions. Happy Fishing!

My daughter in law and grandson and I just returned from a 10-day visit to the Florida Keys. Our afternoon fishing charter with Capt. Greg and his mate, Jayden, was the highlight of our vacation. 9 year old grandson Archer snagged a gigantic (8.5 pounds, 24-inch) Red Grouper and hauled it in with the help of Capt. Greg and Mate Jayden. He also caught a couple of yellow tail snappers, a porgy and a blue runner which we took to Porky's restaurant where they prepared them for our dinner. What a great memory. Capt. Greg and Mate Jayden were patient, professional and knew where to take us for the best catches. You won't be disappointed if you choose them for your fishing charter!
