Welcome to Fish the Dream Holidays:

The Complete Florida Keys Experience

After 5+ years of going on private Keys fishing holidays, we decided to set up Fish the Dream holidays to be able to offer others the best possible tropical game fishing holiday experience.

The Catamaran

One of the most important things is to have the right boat, and from the many styles of boats on offer we decided on a fast catamaran.  Whilst the Flats and Bay boats are very good at what they do, we felt the restrictions of this type of boat meant guests would miss out on the complete Florida Keys experience.  Our boat is equally happy 30 miles offshore on the tuna grounds, trolling in 4 ft seas for sailfish or dorado, at anchor in big seas on the deep wrecks, or in just 12 in of water chasing tarpon, permit and bonefish on the flats in Florida Bay.


The catamaran has twin engine security, massive deck area, a high freeboard giving that safe “in, not on” a boat feel.  It also has a ¾ head with a toilet.  The T-Top layout gives some shade from the sun, and the walk round layout makes it easy play difficult fish as does the open transom to avoid the props.  The boat is rigged with professional out riggers giving us a 40 ft spread for trolling and a cannon downrigger that allows us to work baits down to 250 ft.  Independent live wells keep bait alive all week and run with the engines off.  The electrical package is comprehensive, radar is the only safe way to run in the dark and seeing the sunrise 25 miles offshore on the tuna grounds is stunning.  The latest side imaging sonar by Humminbird gives actual views up to 160 ft  either side of the boat, not the computer generated 3d views, and has been amazing.  For more security we have two independent GPS systems and now real time satellite weather information to track any summer storms.  The twin hull design is ideal to beach the boat on the many desert islands for the trill of stalking fish.  It also allows us to easily carry two twin kayaks to far away mangroves or offshore for extreme kayak fishing with a mother boat.  This gives the chance of a sailfish or tuna from a kayak.  We are also setup for kite fishing, which in recent years has become a favorite method to catch predators in the Keys - to see a sailfish hit a kite bait is just amazing.


Over 10 Years Experience

With 10+ years of Keys fishing experience and 6 years of running fishing holidays, we have collected a large number of top fishing marks and I have local knowledge and experience of all Keys fishing methods: offshore trolling, down rigging, flatlining, live baiting, lure fishing, etc.  This has resulted in many tarpon over 100 lb, permit to 48 lb, grouper regularly over 400 lb, shark to 1000 lb and many more.  With the base record currently 55 species in 6 days, you will not be disappointed.

Free Car Rental

All our packages include a free full size four door rental car for you to enjoy and explore the Keys, and, if you want, some of the rest of Florida, like Miami with all its attractions and huge malls.


Waterside Villa

The accommodation is a private spacious two bedroomed waterside villa, both bedrooms are ensuite and there is a 3rd toilet downstairs  There is a large living room with small kitchen area and a large private roof top sun deck with fantastic views over Florida Bay. Outside is a barbeque area and 100+ ft of private dock to fish, with tarpon, snapper, barracuda, grouper and more just yards from your front door.  The privacy of our villa cuts out the hassle of hotel type accommodation with you not disturbing other guests and them not disturbing you.  All our deals include a full breakfast when we all sit down together to discuss the weather and fishing plans for the day ahead.  You decide what you want to catch and how long you want to fish.


Custom Designed Holidays

We pride ourselves on custom designing any package you want, 2 days to 2 weeks fully inclusive or pay as you go guided, or self-drive, all fishing or days off.  With off peak deals from just £85 a day for B&B, boat and car, tropical game fishing is within the reach of most people.  With some guests now on their 6th trip we must be doing something right - hopefully everything right.  So, please visit our website for information and pictures, and please do contact me for more details.
