Captain recommendations

I'm getting treated to my first ever charter trip for my birthday. There will be 4-5 of us looking for 4-6 hours. One friend and I have been fishing most of our lives from shore, so not newbies. The others would be pretty green. I would like recommendations on ethical, responsible captains in Palm Beach, Broward, or Miami-Dade. No boats that keep sailfish, charge extra for bait once you're on board, or pressure us to get mounts. I want a reputable captain with good ethics. I'm interested in any of the following species in no particular order sailfish, tarpon, sharks, tuna, cobia, permit, wahoo, dolphin, jewfish. It's more important to keep lines bent or get a few very fun fights (ie: sharks, jewfish, sailfish). This will be Labor Day weekend so it's pretty last minute. Who would FS forum members recommend?
