A great example of using TripAdvisor, picking a well reviewed charter, getting exactly what you paid for and more and now leaving a review! Capt. was professional and flexible with our travel plans and got us into the fish. Amazing boats and great gear, we landed a dozen or so in a morning charter. Listen to the Capt! If he... More

Ted was awesome! He was friendly and knowledgeable about all the fish we caught.... He was able to teach us techniques for each fish we were after. He was patient and I liked that we were supporting someone who grew up on these waters, highly recommend!!

Clean, new, well-outfitted boats with a father and son team that will put you on the fish. We had a really fun day with capt. Ted and caught a variety of fish. He was courteous and very knowledgeable with lots of stories of the "old" keys days. Very fun day, highly recommend Skins & Fins!

He made it easy for my girl to hook her first tarpon ever and gave her man more options. In was able to... More

Great day on the flats for two newbies. Patient and put us on fish immediately. Would recommend for hardcore fishing and for novices. Capt' Ted killed it.

Had an amazing day with Captain Donnie he put me on more tarpon than I could count. If only I could have got them to bite. He also found a flat with a huge school of permit which we did land. Amazing trip I will defiantly be back to fish the flats with Captain Donnie.

We had an awesome Tarpon trip during our stay in Islamorada. Captain Ted was very knowledgeable and put us is the perfect spots. We were able to catch two bruisers. One 100+ pounder and a 60+ pounder. I highly recommend fishing the backcountry with Skins and Fins. You will not be disappointed!!

My cousin Scott and I spent a day doing some back country fishing with Capt. Donnie Benbow. I am a novice fisherman but my cousin has years of experience. We both learned so much from Capt. Donnie. We had a great day of fishing and caught lots of fish. If you want to spend a day with a great guide... More
