Both the Capt and Firstmate were knowledgeable about fishing and accommodating to our request. We caught fish the whole trip but brought home two big mutton snappers. Would definitely recommend Sundance Sportfishing.

Our husbands had the best day fishing. Captain Bobby and first mate Shawn did a fantastic job. Sailfish, snapper, mackerel and dolphin were abundant on this day.

My 22 year old daughter and I went for a half day trip during Christmas. It was her first time on a charter fishing trip and Capt. Bob and his mate made it very special for her. They were helpful and humorous. The trip never felt like they were out there doing what they do day after day. That is hard to do but they made us feel like we were their most important clients that they had ever had. Everyone out that day had a tough time fishing but we were able to bring in plenty of fish for our needs. Nice to find someone who enjoys their work, is good at it and appreciates your business.

I fished on Friday 3/23/13 off shore hoping to catch BF Tuna and what a day we had, it was one we will be talking about for years to come. We were 26 miles from Marathon with birds diving and fish breaking all around us. We landed 21 fish which is a super day. Capt Bob and wife Anne are true pros whent it comes to this venue. All the equipment was the best you could ask for and the boat was immaculate. In the morning before we got to the boat Capt Bob was out getting live bait, we had all the ammo in the livewell plus a case of chum if the Tuna didn't cooperate. This team runs a first class operation, so look no further and book early if your headed for Marathon, FL.

My nephew and I fished aboard the Sundance with Capt. Bob and Anne Brown in the spring of 2012. What an incredible time we had! We spent two-and-a-half days aboard the Sundance ... Strong winds, high seas, and unfavorable currents made fishing (and catching) a bit more challenging than usual--- but I wouldn't have changed a thing!

This is when I understood that we made the right decision to go with Sundance. Captain Bob Brown Jr.'s experience, knowledge, and sheer passion for the sport of fishing really shined through... We caught so many kinds of fish... Mahi, Tuna, Jack Cravelle, snapper, grouper(released) catfish, Ladyfish, Spanish Mackerel, some huge Tarpon (almost landed--- but still amazing)...and even a puffer fish (released)---and more --- so many, I forget!

Although we tried, we didn't catch any sails... but neither did anyone else in the area (according to the vhf radio). In fact, given the unfavorable, but not unsafe, conditions... the Sundance was among just a few charter boats that ventured out in the strong winds and unfavorable currents (thanks Capt. Bob for understanding that we didn't come to Marathon just to enjoy the pool at our hotel, but at the same time keeping us safe)

I must mention that Capt. Bob has the greatest 1st mate... Anne Brown! I've been on plenty of other charters... suffice it to say that having Anne on the boat is like having two experienced guides, for the price of one!

Another bonus is that the Sundance is docked at the 7-Mile Marina. It's a cool place with a tiki bar that is just a few feet from the Sundance's dock. Even better... the kitchen is ready to cook your catch... any way and every way you like ... grilled, smoked, and/or fried!

And a word or two about the Sundance... A 32' Century centerconsole powered by 500 horespower. Anne and Capt. Bob keep her spotlessly clean... along with first-class fishing equipment and tackle. Nothing but the best...

We are so looking forward to spending another 3 days aboard the Sundance!
