Booked a Tarpon trip With Chuck In June. As soon as we met him He made us feel comfortable and was a blast to be around. He is A Very knowledable Fisherman and just all around Great Guy. About a month after we fished with Chuck I gave him a call for some advice on a boat That I was looking to buy In KeyLargo ( I Live In Houston,Tx) . Chuck went above and beyond Just giving advice, He drove to Key Largo to go and look over the boat for me. He pointed out Everything that was left out of the description by the dealer And sent me photos. He is a Truley Good guy And Friend. I can’t wait to fish with him again. Thanks Chuck

I googled fishing in Islamorada and was TRULY impressed with the great reviews of Capt Chuck. He lived up to everyone. My father and I (early Fathers Day gift) went out with him to do some fishing. Very knowledgable and great personality. We tried to hit close to some mangroves but unfortunately the mosquitos had a different plan for us :). We went out and caught a great variety of fish and had fun. I learned about using Shrimp as bait from him that I took to my fishing in Key West. Thanks. I am hoping my father and I can make it back here next year and fish with Capt Chuck. If you are down in this area take advantage.

My husband and I recently booked a fishing trip with Chuck and we had a blast! Chuck was awesome, we caught quite a few fish and saw dolphins up close as they swam around the boat! The flats are beautiful with clear water, and islands all over the place. We strongly recommend booking a fishing adventure with Chuck Kitto!

Just got back from a fantastic fishing vacation with Captain Chuck. The kids had a great time…how could they not when almost every cast produced a beautiful Bass. What fun! Thank you Sniper Charters.

Spent two days with Capt. Chuck. We told him we wanted to catch a lot of fish and we caught a lot of fish! He’s very knowledgeable of the Florida Keys and especially the areas around Islamorada, FL. We are already discussing another trip back to the Keys next year and Capt Chuck will definitely be a part of our trip. Thanks again for a great time!

My family and I went fishing with Captain Chuck Kitto over the holidays per a recommendation from friends and it was nothing short of an unforgettable experience! I had no idea there were so many types of sharks in the everglades, which made for exciting fighting and a happy and tired husband! The kids were enthralled the entire trip, whether it was learning the finer points of handling the rods and casting from Captain Chuck, going mano a mano with a shark, or simply gazing in awe at the abundant wildlife. We saw manatees, raccoons, dolphins, alligators, and crocodiles, just to name a few, not to mention a host of different species of birds. Captain Chuck keeps his boat impeccable and comfortable, replete with thick cushions ideal for the ride. My husband loved Chuck’s top shelf fishing equipment and I was more than grateful for his patience as he administered Fishing 101 to me. He’s as delightful as he is knowledgeable and my kids loved him! They can’t stop talking about the experience and it was hands down the absolute highlight of our trip to the Florida Keys!! Thanks for making lifelong memories for me and my family, Captain Chuck! See you next year!! Sincerely, The Caldwells, Marguerite, William, Crosby, and Yvonne

Can’t say enough about our fishing experience! What a great Capt and chalk full of knowledge. We saw dolphins,turtles,manatees and numerous Osprey. This was all before we even started fishing. Ask Capt Chuck to take you to his secret dolphin spot and see if you can pet the dolphin too! Fishing was amazing. He said it was slow but I can’t remember ever not having a fish on. I highly recommend this to both novice and experienced fisherman. Heck the outdoors aspect of it was worth it without the array of fish we caught. Thanks, Jessica Ghering

I have been fishing with Chuck for a few years now and have yet to have a bad trip. Good weather or bad we have slayed the fish! Snappers,tarpon,snook,shark and all those other backcountry critters are not safe on that stealthy speed boat! I like the fact that Chuck will clean all your fish for you and sometimes cook it as well(Ask him to make ceviche). I have two nice mounts one of a 200lb tarpon that we fought for nearly three hours on 8lb test and another lemon shark that Chuck dove on top of after we boated the 300lber!! They are hanging in my office and give me great memories as I work away. I highly recommend chartering with Chuck.

For the last few years Captain Chuck has been guiding us through remote Central American and Mexican waters chasing various off – shore species including Billfish, Dorado, Tuna and Wahoo. We have also enjoyed surf fishing in those impossible to access rocky cliff locations I wouldn’t ever try on my own. Needless to say, always productive. He has been an invaluable asset keeping us out of harms way during some of our eco adventures through croc-infested waters in one of our favorite Costa Rican ‘secret spots’. Chuck has gone well beyond the status of being a guide you need on your extreme fishing or outback trip, he’s become ‘one of the guys’ that’s always on the top of our list for future travels.

We just returned from our first trip to the keys and had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Chuck Kitto. My wife caught her first shark as well as many other fish. He keeps his boat clean, has top line gear, is very knowlegdgeable about the area, fish,etc. We are already planning to return next year during Tarpon season and will of course be booking with Captain Chuck again.

I caught a bullshark two lemon sharks blacktip and a spinner shark, I had no idea they jumped out of the water with such acrobatics they looked like mini great whites to me, just awesome!!!!

Captain Chuck was great!!! I’ve never done back country fishing before, and he was super helpful and informative every step of the way. I really wasn’t expecting to catch much on my first time out, but we caught a lot! It was a lot of fun and I would do it again!!

I traveled from LA to the Keys with a crew of 5 people to do a video/still shoot, featuring water sports. One of which was back country fishing. I found Captain Chuck’s information on line, gave him a call, and explained what we needed to do. He helped us attain another boat, so that we could shoot our models on one boat and use his boat as the camera boat. It was definitely worth everything to have Captain Chuck with us. He took us to spots we would not have found on our own, he showed our models how to look like they were fishing. He even caught a fish for us prior to the shoot day, so that our models could pose with it in the video and stills as if they had caught it themselves. Thanks so much, Captain Chuck!

Capt. Chuck took us out for two days of incredible fishing. I’ve used fishing guides around the world and Chuck was definitely one of the most knowledgeable and entertaining. He said he would get us into fish and he lived up to his word. Looking forward to our next trip down there that will definitely include Capt. Chuck.

Had a great time fishing with Cap’n Chuck! I did an evening tarpon trip last night and it was awesome. Caught a real nice fish just after sunset and being my first tarpon, I couldn’t have been happier. Really nice boat and super fast too, just the ride to the fishing grounds was a blast.

Thank you Captain ! Your patience with urban rookies like us was really appreciated. Simply amazing when you get off the beaten path and into the wild. Chuck, you served us the adventure we’d heard about and reminiscing I can still hear the jungle sounds. Snook n’ Snapper ! SO MUCH FUN.

If you’re looking for a fun and action packed time on the water, Captain Chuck is your man. 4 of us did an evening Tarpon trip with him on 02Apr2011. My buddy had barely held a fishing rod before, and within minutes into the trip he found himself fighting a cartwheeling Tarpon! Through Captain Chuck’s expert guidance and encouragement, my friend now thinks he is a fishing superstar. Thanks for putting us onto some great fish, and for all the great laughs, Captain Chuck!

My husband and I went out on a charter with Chuck Kitto and I must say it was fabulous! We were in town for our wedding and were recommended to Sniper Charters. Chuck has an amazing personality; funny, exciting, and very much outgoing! We had such a great trip catching lots of fish (Chuck explained every kind of fish that was reeled in) and watched an exceptional sunset! This was the perfect and romantic time for me and my husband and we could not have done it withouth Chuck! I recommend Sniper Charters to everyone!

Just returned from a 10 day trip to The Keys and hired Capn Chuck for a night trip for tarpon. We had a blast and learned quite a bit about the tarpon so we can come home and try to catch our own. You can’t go wrong in hiring Capn Chuck! Thanks for the good time……..

Florida Keys Fishing Adventures was awesome. Capt. Chuck was very knowledgeable and entertaining, and more importantly, helped my group hook one of the biggest Tarpon I’ve ever seen. I would recommend this charter to anyone, novice or experienced; Chuck can definitely “Get ‘er done!”… Thanks for the great trip!

Simply put, fishing with Captain Chuck was First Rate!!!!! I have been fishing with guides for the last 40 years. The three days fishing with him , with out a doubt, will always be a highlight to remember. The first two days we caught a bunch of fish and had a great time!! The third day not so many but had an even a better time. I have fished with many Captains that were experts at catching fish. I have also fished with Captains that were fun to be around. Fishing with him, my wife and I, had a both !! We WILL be back soon !!!!!!!!!! DM

IN 2009, four of Musgrove Mill Golf Clubs’ intrepid golfers decided to forego their annual golf trip to Las Vegas. One of the group suggested fishing. After researching different possible venues, the decision was made: Why not fly into south Florida and charter a boat to fish the Florida Keys. After consulting a map of the Keys, it was clear that simply renting a boat and tackle was a fool’s errand. There was simply too much water and too little combined fishing experience in our group. Charles “Chuck” Kitto of Sniper Charters saved the day. He gave us a proposal for three days of serious fishing. Weather permitting; we would fish the Gulf Stream. We knew that the blue water off Florida’s Keys was a fisherman’s paradise. So, forearmed with this information, we booked tickets, hotels and rental cars. Then, Mother Nature played one of her little tricks. We arrived in Islamorada only to be greeted by 20 mph wind and scattered showers. Our pent up anticipation turned to depression with the realization that blue water fishing was out of the question. Once again, Chuck demonstrated the depth of his professionalism. He guided us through three days of the best angling we have ever experienced. Although we had planned to fish off shore, the Florida Bay proved to be every bit as challenging. As soon lines met water, fish appeared. Snapper, sea trout, cat fish, and a host of other varieties gave us a bounty of fishing excitement. Chuck released and re-baited a nonstop flow of lines. At the same time, he prepared two boat rods for slightly larger quarry. None of us was prepared for the three bull sharks, and the goliath grouper caught the first day. Each succeeding day brought different excitement. We had at least 10 Tarpon hits on the last day. Two of the magnificent fish were boated. Needless to say, we are now counting the days until we get to visit Chuck Kitto and the Florida Bay for our second annual fishing trip. If the 2010 version is half as good as 2009, golf trips may be a thing of the past. Doug Mahan George Watt Jeff Tallman Brent Burns

Booked a morning outing with Capt. Chuck out of Cheeca Spa. Day was sunny and calm. Checked out the back country first with no bites, so Chuck took us to where the fish were biting. Great sport, lots of fish and great laughs. Chuck was polished and professional and even laughed at our jokes. Highly recommend him for a great outing. The Minnesota Walleye family

Talk about a double header. I was interested in fishing the Keys for the first time and my wife wanted to do an ecotour. Captain Chuck knocked it out of the park! Not only did I catch all the Glades’ fish, but we were able to get up close and personal with all the birds, mammals, reptiles, and flora and fauna of the Florida Keys. We are booking for next year!

Great Day in the backcountry with Captain Kitto. Was really patient with our group and put us on the fish. We will be back to fish with him. Looking forward to our offshore trip!

My wife and I booked an evening trip with Captain Chuck, and what a great experience. He helped us land our first Tarpon ever, and we nailed it on the first night! Great Captain, great setup, My wife and I would recommend him to anyone. Chuck even saved the day by providing us with the money shot photo, just as we had drained our camera battery. Thanks a million Chuck!

We arrived in the Keys just as a front was coming through sending the temps to record breaking lows. We originally wanted to fish back country but Capt. Chuck informed us that all those back country fish were sleeping due to the low water temps. BUMMER! Capt. Chuck was well prepared and new exactly where to take us instead so we headed out to the reef just offshore where we spent hours we had catching lots of fish. At one point we were catching fish 3 at a time. Loads of fun! We would not hesitate to go out with Chuck again and plan to asap. Thanks, Chuck, for a great time.

We went backcountry fishing in the Everglades Captain Chuck of Sniper Charter. We’ll never use another guide. Chuck is a polished professional and knows the waters like the back of his hand. Very safety concience and very calm even when everyone on the boat is hooked up. I’d highly recommend him.

I’m not really a good fisherman but my buddies wanted to do a bit while we were in the Keys. Captain Chuck was pretty cool and made sure we had a great time. Would definitely recommend him.

I will never fish with anyone else, you feel like you are fishing with family. If you are looking for a charter that will satisfy all your needs, stop right here. You will catch lot’s of fish, and make memories that will last a life time.

Captain Chuck made the trip for us. He worked hard to get us to the fish, and it really paid off. He had unbelievable knowledge of the area and what would work and what wouldn’t. This is the best fishing captain I have ever been out with, and I certainly wouldn’t miss the opportunity to fish the back country – it is absolutley gorgeous and a ton of fun!

We have fished with Capt. Chuck 3 thime now. He is great with Kids, my wife Angie like him because he is so easy going. I like him for his fishing skills and knowledge of the Everglades National Park. If you want to catch Big Tarpon or Snook like I did, Give Capt. Chuck a call.

Hace más de 5 años que voy a pescar regularmente con Captain Chuck, vivo en Uruguay, y viajo varias veces por año a Miami, cada vez que viajo me hago un lugar para pasar un dîa de pesca, ya sea solo, con amigos o con mi esposa y mis 2 hijos pequeños. Como persona es excelente y como guia de pesca no conozco otro mejor, sin duda lo recomiendo a todas las personas que quieran pasar un muy buen rato de pesca, ya sean aficionados o no. Muchas gracias. Gustavo

We sailed with Captain Chuck Kitto of www.Snipercharters.com 305-522-2826 Islamorada, FL (in the Keys) on 12/24/2012. We went Bird Watching in the back country. He got us into the channels south of Everglades National Park so we could see all the wading birds at low tide. There were thousands of exotics of one type or another including: Spoonbills, Black Skimmers, Ospreys and zillions of small waders. Later on, there were Crocks and Gators. On the way bacy we stopped and looked at about 60 Dolphins which were just a curious about us as we were about them.
For birders looking for something different, Try this !!

My 11 year old son and I just fished with Capt Chuck on his brand new boat (sweet ride and well set up). We did a 4-8pm charter, targeting a combo of snapper, jacks, etc, and also tarpon.
The sites were awesome as we cruised around, and as the fishing started slow (at least for the bigger fish – we had fun with small ones throughout), we moved around a bit and saw several different locations. In the end, Chuck managed to get my son into a bonnet head shark, and he kept us out a bit late to make sure I was able to get a tarpon, checking a big one off my bucket list in the process!
Chuck was professional, helpful, and engaging throughout the trip. Most importantly, he was great with my son. He helped him, but also encouraged him to do things on his own, including holding the shark for a great photo.
I’d highly recommend fishing with Chuck!

Captain Chick took me and a friend out on January 6, 2012 and we managed a rare feat – two west coast slams (trout red and snook). It was a beautiful day weather wise but the fish weren’t cooperating early but Captain Chuck was diligent and worked it hard all day and managed to get us on the fish later in the day. And then we finished the day strong – the last hour Chuck put us on a honey hole and it was nonstop hookup after hookup for an hour. All in all a great day fishing with one of the most hardworking and personable captains in the Keys. Thanks Chuck for a memorable day fishing.

Best fishing trip ever. There’s so much to see in the Keys and this was the perfect way to do it. We’re hooked on flats fishing!

I can’t say enough about our trip with Capt. Chuck to do some back country fishing!!! My 15 year old son just won’t quit talking about the experience and we are already locking down a week for our trip next year. One thing we would definitely change…4 hours isn’t enough time when your catching fish constantly and having so much fun…it FLEW by!!!
Thanks again Capt. Chuck…see you next December!!!!

I just can’t say enough about my fishing experience. I never had thought this trip for my husband would be so fun. I love fishing and was very excited to go with a “professional”. My husband is an amazing fisherman and between Capt Chuck and him the fish where on all day. My husband even taught Chuck some new knots and after a few missed attempts on the cast net by Chuck my husband was able to get those crafty mullet.
All in all it was worth every penny and besides a great day of fishing we made a new friend. Can’t wait till our next charter.
Thanks again Capt Chuck!!…….Sincerely Jessica

Over the last few years Capt. Chuck has guided us on some of our adventures in remote places including Costa Rica and most recently in Mexico producing excellent fishing results. His talents go well beyond fishing as he has always rounded our group as a great person to travel with. I’m looking forward to our next trip!

We met captain Chuck at his dock in Islamorada at 8:00 o’clock in the morning, for what turned out to be the high point for our Keys vacation. After talking to Captain Chuck for no more than a few minutes his excitement and enthusiasm infected the whole family. My boys and I fish quite often and the first thing they noticed was the first class equipment he had on board and how well his boat was kept up. It was obvious that Captain Chuck was interested in making our day special by the questions he asked. We are a family that truly enjoys being outdoors together. When we are with a guide, it sure makes it a complete experience when we know that it s more than just a job for the professional captain. In this case it was obvious form the start. We had an exciting and fulfilling day on the water. We had nice weather, caught a variety of back country fish and saw other interesting Florida wildlife. I talked to Captain Chuck about the possibility of fishing with him in one of the local Tarpon tournaments. This is something that I have always wanted to do. I am looking forward to doing so in future as I know he has had great success in the past. Simply put we could not have had a better day on the water together. Captain Chuck made it happen for me and my boys.

Had a great time fishing last night with Captain Chuck. He took me out on my first tarpon trip and I had a blast. Caught a real nice fish just after sunset and the boat ride to the fishing grounds was awesome as well. I’ll definately go again.

My friends and I just went down to the keys on vacation. We tried to do some fishing on our own and weren’t having much luck. I found the Florida Keys Fishing Adventures online and setup a backcountry fishing trip with Captain Chuck for the next day. It was definitely the best idea I had. He was super friendly and very knowledgeable when it came to the fish and fishing spots. He took us to a lot of really great spots and it was the most fish we had caught the entire trip! I would recommend him to anyone!
Visited April 2011

We did the flats,offshore, night fishing/crabing and a dive trip with Cpt Chuck – what a great area! Shallows, reefs, mangroves, wrecks and the deep blue sea – all within a few minutes of his dock. It is cold here now and I wish I was back aboard one of his boats. Sigh!

Although we’d been Tarpon fishing with Captain Chuck of Sniper Charters back in May. We decided to go back country fishing with him this time. What a wonderful experience. Chuck took us to a bunch of holes. We caught literally all kinds of fish. Red fish, permit, snook and even a surprise shark (but lost him). We’d highly recommend Sniper Charters. Great Tarpon guide too.
