Islamorada Dirty Boat Charters at Robbie's
Offshore fishing is what put Islamorada on the map. Many legends such as Ernest Hemmingway, Zane Grey and Ted Williams called this area home at one time or another. Let me introduce you to the premier boat here on our charter boat row.
Don't let the name fool you, "DIRTY BOAT" is a clean and comfortable tournament rigged 32' Blackfin with low emissions twin CAT diesel motors. We specialize in light tackle live bait fishing for Sailfish, Tuna, Mahi mahi, Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Tarpon and several other species depending on the time of year.
Islamorada is unique in its variety of gamefish that can be caught in a single day. There aren't many places where it is possible to catch Bonefish, Permit, Snook, and Tarpon in the morning and Sailfish, Tuna, Mahi, and Wahoo in the afternoon. No matter the weather, there is always something biting somewhere.
The diversity and quality of fishing in Islamorada have attracted world class guides and Captains to the local marinas. What sets "DIRTY BOAT" apart is a love to teach others how to make their day of fishing the best day possible whether on "DIRTY BOAT" or a boat of your own. After a day of fishing with us you will never look at the ocean the same way.

"I have been going to the Keys for over 20 years. I have been out on a lot of different charter boats in that time and The Dirty Boat is "hands down" the best! Capt Joe Saba not only ALWAYS finds fish he makes the trip fun by interacting with the people on the boat. It is always great fun and when I get off the boat I am always planning my next trip with him. I can't imagine fishing with anyone else that can provide such a satisfying experience!

"Amazing day! While planning our trip to the Keys, my 18 yr old and I were thinking, " huh...sporting fishing??? Doesn't sound like much fun!" Well!!!! We were fortunate enough to luck into a split charter ( Thanks Steve & John! You are the best) on the incredible 'Dirty Boat'. The Captain, Joe Saba and Mate, Brett are extremely good at ensuring their clients have an amazing experience! They really put everything into making your day very successful and fun with great attitudes, easy-going manner and sense of humor! I caught my first Sailfish and was truly blown away with the whole experience! Beautiful day, comfortable, clean boat, reasonable price for the exceptional quality of the Charter, great laughs and expert assistance in getting that beauty on board!!! I am being very sincere (while gushing, yes! LOL!) that it was my VERY best day on the water ever!!! Thank you so much Brett and Joe for all the awesomeness! My daughter and I will be back at some time for some Lobster....... Just sad I don't have my pics yet! I want to be on the wall at Robbies( another amazing gem in the Keys) like you promised Joe! Keep doin' what you guys do so well........Nirvanna on the sea!!!
