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!

    Went the first week of January with Justin and Turtle and had a blast. We caught lots of fish, but more importantly the first class overall treatment from the Captain and first mate. We had such a fun time that I booked 2 more charters this month. If you are going to fish off Key Largo, go with this team. The experience will be second to none.

    It’s too bad that we don’t have 10 Stars for these guys…they are simply amazing. Not only we caught more fish that we could handle…Justin and Turtle are the perfect “shipmates” these guys go way overboard to please you…professionalism, experience and flat out great time with them. Huge thanks for the awesome time yesterday…we will never forget.

    Thank you so very much for our day of fishing. I don't get to spend time with my friends as often as I would like, but the time we spent with Captain justin and Mr. Turtle yesterday will be a day I will cherish and remember. While the weather was humid and sunny, you made our trip was a success. We've been able to fishing many types of fish with the help of this awesome crew, especially Mr. Turtle. Once again, thank you for the opportunity of spending the day in a relaxing, friendly atmosphere and I look forward to another trip.
