Welcome To Beaver Charters

Fish with the crew of Beaver Charters we put in 100% effort on every charter to make our clients happy. We get the angler involved as much as they would like to be. We are not a charter boat where the mate hooks the fish and hands off the rod. We want you to experience the thrill of catching a trophy fish like a sailfish from start to finish. As you can see from our tournament page that we have a lot of experience and knowledge of the waters of the Upper Keys from Islamorada to Ocean Reef. Book today come fish with us on Beaver Charters.

I have been fishing south Florida and the Bahamas for 30 years. Also,traveling to Costa Rica,Panama, St Thomas, Alaska and Cabo San Lucas. I have owned a charter boat for 12 years. I enjoy taking everyone fishing whether it is a family for the first time or an avid fisherman. I have been fortunate to win and place in tournaments all over the world. We dedicate 100% on every charter we take out.
I’m a 100% disabled Veteran due to medical conditions and can no long fish full time. But will still fish a few days here and there. Captain Fred Dillon and Josh Davis will be fishing most of the time.

Captain Fred was born and raised in the Keys. He is a third generation fisherman. He has been fishing with me since 2007. He has won numerous tournaments with the crew from the Beaver. Fred has a great personality and a passion for fishing.

Mate Josh Davis has come aboard and he to was born and raised in the Keys. He has been fishing professionally for twelve years and has numerous tournament wins and places under his belt. He has the passion and ability to teach clients how to fish and get hands on experience of the process. Our charter boat wants the client to hook their own fish and get involved as much as possible to make their day more rewarding and memorable.

On a lot of charter boats the mate hooks the fish and hands you the rod. We do not do that, we want you to experience the action from start to finish.
