Doug and Roy were not only very knowledgeable but very personable and a lot of fun! They quickly set us all up and we were catching fish in no time. We went out on a half day charter with 4 people and caught a TON of yellow tailed snapper and Blue runners. Doug was really flexible with scheduling and helped... More

My son and I tried to arrange a charter, and while we couldn't make it happen, Doug was great in trying to facilitate either a charter with one of his boats, or he even put us in touch with other captains to arrange a trip. Ultimately the weather didn't cooperate on the days we were looking to go. I really... More

You've heard the expression "You should have been here yesterday"? Well, I was there "yesterday". I went fishing for Tuna with Captain Doug and his First Mate Roy on the Marathon Hump and hit the jackpot. It took a little while for Doug to scout out the fish, but once we found them, I think we hit one or more... More

Captain Doug Kelly is the premiere fishing captain and guide in the Keys. He took my bachelor party on the best fishing trip I've ever been on anywhere in the Keys! He's personable, professional and above all, knowledgeable. His boat is well kept, spacious, and his tackle and equipment are in pristine condition. We caught more yellowtail than most drift...

Captain Doug took us out to some great spots. I hooked a ton of yellow tails, blue runners, cudas, and a shark. I have been out several times with Doug and I have never been disappointed. He knows how show you a good time and you always come back with plenty of fish for dinner and then some. If you... More

Captain Doug is a very experienced Captain and has been fishing the waters off Marathon for over two decades. He took us to some great fishing spots and when we weren't getting bites at one spot he took us to the next spot and put us on the fish. He was relentless in his pursuit of finding fish and it...
