  • We Caught a Ton of Fish!

    Created Glenn Prentice

    Really enjoyed the 2 days we fished with Capt Keith. Great guy to be around and he can put you on fish. We caught a lot of fish in spite of less than ideal weather.

  • Excellent Service!

    Created Susan Anthony

    I used their fishing guide service on the 8th of September and had an excellent time. The Guide Anthony Vargas was professional and worked hard at getting us on the fish. He was friendly and personable. I would highly recommend Bamboo Charters and Anthony Vargas. Susan

  • Great Day Fishing the Reef

    Created Jenna Calise

    Great day out with Matt fishing the reef. We had some good fights and landed some nice mangrove snapper. Matt was extremely knowledgeable of the area and had some great stories to tell!

  • Loved this Charter!

    Created Linda Fuller

    It's not just about the fishing it's about what else your guide shows you on the way, dolphins, turtles and alligators in the everglades, these guys know where to find them. I never used to fish always sat around a pool. But thanks to Bamboo i now fish twice a year with them and always have a great day on the water and such fun to be with them. To catch different fish is amazing all kinds from. Spanish Mackerel,snapper,red fish,tarpon and sharks, the list is endless. Would i recommend them to others, god yes amazing team to take you out and fish. Big thanks Capt Matt Bellinger and team of Bamboo Charters.

  • Fishing Fun!

    Created Jamed Casella

    A lot of fun fishing with Captain Matt..Put us on the fish. Me and my wife Monica had a great time.. recommend Bamboo Charter to any who will listen.. will use them again..only downside was Captain lost his phone☹

  • Two Trips!

    Created Dane Parker

    Thursday, May 7, we took a backcountry everglades trip with Captain Kieth and he put us on sea trout and snapper. We also tried our hand at shark and tarpon fishing. All together had a great time out on the water and later eating the trout "lazy and super lazy day's" style. Saturday, May 9, we took an inshore trip with Captain Judd and he put us on various reef species (grouper, hog fish, etc). We also spent some time tarpon fishing and managed to leader a 5-6' nurse shark. Again, we had an awesome time on the water and look forward to fishing with Bamboo Charters again. Special thanks to Anna for setting up a great weekend fishing the keys.

  • Love these Guys!

  • Highly Recommended!

    Created Donald Ferguson

    My wife Mandy and I went on a four hour trip with Capt. Matt on Thursday April 20, 2017. We had a great time catching our limit of sea trout, a few Jack Crevalle and even a surprise bonefish! Conditions were windy and a bit rough but Capt. Matt was able to maneuver the boat thru the chop to keep us dry. We had an awesome trip and would highly recommend Bamboo Charters! The Trout are going on the smoker today! 🐟🐟

  • 6 hour charter!

    Created Mark Jacyna

    Took a 6 hour charter with Capt. Keith in mid January. We went out on their 24 Islamorada Boatworks bay boat. Overall we had a great time. Keith is very knowledgeable and his fishing chops are second to none. He worked his butt off for us and even gave us an extra hour to try to get us a shark. We targeted Spanish Mack, Snook, and Shark. We got good pullage from the Mack and brought a couple pounds of meat back for dinner. In addition we got a good tour of the back country and Everglades park and learned lot about the back country fishery in the Keys. Overall a great day on the water with a great charter outfit. We will definitely be back again!

  • Very Professional Charter

    Created Michael Walsh

    Went out with Capt. Keith for afternoon charter. I am an avid angler with lots of experience. My brother in law had never fished; Capt. Keith was excellent teacher. I was most impressed with his "professionalism" and knowledge - which tends to lack in the charter fishing industry. We boarded a very clean vessel at the dock stocked with quality equipment. We rode about 10-12 miles out, and he put us on fish on the FIRST CAST. LOTS of rod-bending! Even though the day of fishing was average that day due to weather patterns (even in Islamorada it's called "fishing" for a reason) the experience start-to-end was great, right down to the complimentary adult beverage at the dock after the trip! I will absolutely go out with them again. If you are looking for a good Islamorada experience for medium-to-light tackle backcountry and flats fishing (tarpon, snapper, trout, reds and snook) and want a professional experience, these are your guys. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
