The Kay K IV was built in 2002. Air conditioned, well maintained and fast, the K KAY IV was customized to maximize fishability and comfort. We can easily handle up to 6 fishermen in the KAY K IV’s huge cockpit with it’s large live bait well. The experienced crew will guide you to and give you instructions on how to catch Mahi , Wahoo, Sailfish, Kingfish, Tuna and more. Do you want to fish the reef for yellowtail snapper, muttons snapper and groupers? We can do that! How about fishing for something different? Deep dropping (300ft to 600ft) for snapper, tilefish, porgies and snowy grouper; just a few of the tasty deepwater fish species that Captain Don has the equipment and the expertise to catch. Concerned about getting seasick or don’t want to get too far out to sea? Try our patch fishing trip. Lots of action, close to shore and in relatively calm water. We have a clean bathroom, comfortable seating and a large fish box. We also have a courteous, professional, and experienced crew that will make your trip truly memorable.

Absolutely an amazing time on board the KAY K IV with Don and Dave. Their knowledge of the area and the fish was cray cray impressive. Both are first glass guy's and a ton of fun to hang out with for a day and absorb some of their knowledge on the water.

We love Don and Dave. Don runs the boat like no other and Dave is the most knowledgeable and hardest working mate I've ever met. We had a blast and filled the boat. Well done yet again guys. We are customers for life. I recommend the Kay K IV to anyone that wants to have a great experience with life-timers... More

This was a first time fishing experience for my wife and I. We had a great time with Capt Don and Dave. We fished, we laughed and talked about life in general. My wife and I couldn't thank the Kay K IV crew enough for a very memorable experience. We did the shark fishing in the evening and it was... More

Caught 2 sailfish and a bunch of snapper on a full day trip. Captain Don knew where to put us on the bite and Dave the mate worked tirelessly to get the fish on the hook and to the boat. It was good to see masters at their craft - the SPOTLESS condition of the Kay K IV is a... More

We've been fishing with Capt Don for almost ten years and each trip gets better. Capt Don always finds the fish and First Mate Dave works continuously. Together they make a great team. We go with a big group, so instead of using two boats we used the Kay K IV on Friday and Saturday. Weather and sea conditions totally... More

We have used Captain Don too many times to count and have never been disappointed! Both Don and his first mate, Dave, have been a delight to fish with. No matter if it has been with our three young boys, a group of women that have never fished or a group of experienced fishermen they have been wonderful. Not just... More

This was the first time I had ever been fishing offshore, and thanks to Capt. Don's ability to find fish, and First Mate Dave's "never quit" work ethic, it won't be my last fishing trip with Kay K IV. Don and Dave have a knowledge and a passion for what they do, and it didn't go unnoticed by us, nor... More

I've been on many charters in many different locations and I must say Captain Don and First mate Dave are the most professional and the best fishermen I've spent the day with. All 6 of our group caught multiple fish of many species including 2 sailfish. The second coming at the very end of a full day. Many boats would... More
