Captain John, Ron (1st mate) and Chacha (Captain’s wife) were all great! We had fun, caught fish and had a great half day on the water. Ron was more than helpful, showing us sights on the way out and giving tips on reeling in some big fish (for my experience).
We plan to come back down and book a charter with Magic again.

Thank you we enjoyed your company and hope you can come back soon! You did a great job landing the fish. Capt John

Captain got us on the fish but crew were very rude. I had to tell them a few time to relax.  I wanted my mom, kids and wife to catch fish, I’ve caught many times already and prefer them to enjoy and reel fish. I wanted to give them the experience.  If they lose a fish due to weak or slow reeling, the staff would get mad or make comments.  We didn’t care if we catch any fish at the end,  We wanted them to have fun.  It was a bad experience.  Not because we didn’t catch, we did but having rude people around my family sucks.

Excellent experience. Caught (and released) Tiger Shark, and few others like Grouper. Very professional and knowledgeable crew. Highly recommended. Will be coming back for Marlin fishing. We were pressed for time, otherwise would have stayed longer in Keys.
