Capt. Kevin Johnsen is a licensed USGC Master Captain, avid diver and 35 plus year resident of Marathon and the middle Keys.  Growing up on the unspoiled beaches and waters of the Florida Keys, he developed the attraction and life long bond to the ocean.  After a 10 year hiatus in the suburbs of Chicago, the ocean called him back to the Keys to be reunited with liquid paradise.

His adventures started small, spearfishing with friends from a small boat on the weekends and rod and reel fishing when the water temperatures fell below “warm”.  Soon the weekend adventures became unbelievable local fish stories until photo and video documentation was required to back up the claims.  Word of mouth spread through friends of friends and it became clear that it was time to build a business to share these experiences with others who shared the love for the water, but had limited time and budgets. Capt. Kevin has held a variety of jobs on the water from traveling marine service engineer, watersports guide, kayak guide and boat rentals to commercial lobster and yellowtail fishing.

This diversity of experience has allowed him to hone his skills above and below the water.  More importantly, it has taught him the importance of customer service and providing every client with a personally rewarding experience.  Not everybody wants to hardcore fish or dive and most charter outfits have nothing to offer those who seek adventures “outside of the box”. Florida Keys Reel Adventures was born out of Capt. Kevin’s love of the ocean environment surrounding Marathon and the Middle Keys.  Come experience a fishing, snorkeling,  lobstering, mermaiding or other custom adventures through the fresh perspective of a Captain that takes pride in his craft and gracefully passes his knowledge on to his guests.
