“We had an amazing trip with Jason. Lots of fish and we even saw Dolphins! We are not experienced at fishing but he made sure we were comfortable and caught fish! Looking forward to making this an annual outing. Thank you for the awesome memories of our honeymoon.”

“We caught mangrove snapper & grouper! Overall we had a lot of fun and we brought home several fish. Captain Jason even filleted them back at the harbor for us. We recommend him greatly and wholeheartedly to anyone who likes to go fishing in the lower Keys.”

“We enjoyed ourselves so much that we gave our family a day out fishing for Christmas. Boneafide Charters are a very professional group that you can joke with and enjoy a great day fishing in clear clean Florida Keys water! We will use Boneafide every time we go back to Florida.”

Christian BTripAdvisor Review

“Our amazing catch's of the day have certainly made their way through social media, however, these catch's would not have been possible without Capt. Jason's expertise in everything from the fishing spot, to baiting, to understanding and responding to the bite, to reeling in the fish. It was a blast and exceeded my idea of what our day would be!”

Annie WendorffTripAdvisor Review

“What a BLAST! A true expert, Jason, put us on the fish every day! Very well organized, clean boat, and excellent gear, and once we hit the dock Deb did an outstanding job making us feel at home. What a great experience!”

“If you are looking to go out, catch your limit, have fun and leave with a huge smile on your face then look no further. This is the 2nd time I have gone out with them and I would not look anywhere else.”

Annie BTripAdvisor Review

“Unlike other charters!! Amazing experience from start to finish. Captain Jason and Debi make you feel like part of the family! I brought my child along, which can sometimes be a challenge. Not on Boneafide! We were all able to relax and soak in the beauty of the Keys. They know where the hot spots are! The captain was informative with a great sense of humor. This is a great cruise for all ages. Can't wait to go back!”
