Fantastic Charters of Key Largo is a family-run fishing charter business with Captains Justin and Dallas Hopper at the helm. For over two decades, this father and son duo has provided customers with some of the best fishing experiences in Florida, offering a unique guarantee – they will always catch fish! The Hopper’s years of experience have given them the knowledge to find the best spots in the area to ensure their guests get plenty of bites throughout the day. This ability to bring in fish consistently has led them to be known as one of Florida’s ultimate fishing charters, with many customers returning year after year.

Captain Justin Hopper has been fishing the Florida Keys for over 30 years, and his son Dallas has grown up with the Florida Keys at his backdoor. Justin has mentored Dallas; together, they are two of the best captains in the Florida Keys. They are very hands-on, providing instructions to new fishermen and expert tips to seasoned anglers. They want to ensure you have a great time fishing in the open sea.

Captain Justin’s Fantastic II is a beautiful 40ft Custom Sportfisher powered by twin diesel engines and equipped with the latest electronic navigation and fish-finding equipment. This state-of-the-art craft comes fully equipped with four comfortable and spacious fish fighting chairs, outriggers, downriggers, live bait wells, fish finders, a GPS navigation system and VHF radios – perfect for up to 6 people looking to enjoy a deep sea fishing trip of a lifetime. Fantastic II has top-of-the-line amenities such as onboard restrooms and comfortable seating so you can relax while on board.

Captain Dallas’s HopAlong is an impressive 26ft custom fiberglass open fisherman. Powered by a single Yamaha 250 engine, this craft is designed to provide 360-degree fishing for improved results. On board, guests will find all the latest in electronic navigation and fish-finding equipment. From its powerful engine to its advanced tech options – up to 4 guests can expect an unbeatable fishing experience when chartering this remarkable vessel.

The tried and true methods of catching fish in the Keys are trolling, jigging and live baiting, and all three are used on our boats. But depending on how the fish are biting and where they are biting, both Captains have lots of techniques to put you on the fish.

There are half-day, ¾ day and full-day charters. Each charter can be catered to meet your needs and wants. You tell Captain Justin or Dallas what type of fish you want to pursue, and they will ensure that your day is filled with happy memories that will last a lifetime.
Bring sunscreen, sunglasses( polarized if possible), and a hat to shade you from the hot Florida Sun. A camera is a must to take Instagrammable pictures that you can brag to your friends for months.

At Fantastic Charters Key Largo, it’s more than catching fish – it’s about making lifelong memories that will keep you coming back for more! Whether it’s deep sea adventure or fishing inshore on the reefs and wrecks, there is no shortage of excitement when chartering with Fantastic Charters!

    What an amazing time with an absolutely amazing Captain and First Mate. Justin and Turtle are nothing but the best. Interacted great with the youngest of our group at 13 all the way up to oldest of 76. They really make every effort possible to make sure you have a wonderful experience. They work together like a finely tuned machine. I really liked how they educated us on all aspects of the trip. We did two 3/4 day trips back to back and we would definitely do it again. We look forward to seeing them again when we're able to get back to Key Largo!!!

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! CAPTAIN JUSTIN HOPPER of the FANTASTIC II Charter, Key Largo and his First Mate, Turtle, turned my 17 yr old boys into MEN !! I used to live on a boat there in 1998 and I wanted my son to experience what I had then! They caught sharks and a variety yellowfin, snappers and a few other fish. The crew suggested a local eatery within walking distance to have the freshest catch prepared and the meal was just the cherry on top! Perfect day all the way!! If you want an experience of a lifetime for your family….book this charter with Fantastic II! This is my 3rd time on the boat and always an experience! Hands down the best!

    What a great day with Capt Dallas!! We had fish in right away. He knows the area and what fish are biting in the current conditions. Highly recommend booking Capt Dallas if you are in the area!! Ashley was great with the booking and answering questions. From start to finish this was an awesome experience. Thanks everyone at Fantastic Charters!

    You will not go wrong fishing with Justin on the Fantastic II. I have fished with Justin for more than 30 years and no one does a better job of getting you on fish and putting some in the box He and Turtle - two really great guys that know how to catch.
