It was an awesome day on the water. Not only did we see a lot of dolphins. My husband caught a lot of fish. Capt. Tom not only knew how to keep me entertain with the views and wildlife...but he also took us where there were fish.

We chose this charter boat on short notice because all of the recommended ones were already booked. We soon found out why this one wasn't. Apparently other fishermen already knew about this one. It was an expensive lesson. Captain Tom claimed to know where the big fish were. Guess what? He did. He knew where all of the sharks were.... More

I called Captain Tom a few weeks before our trip down to the keys so I could get scheduled. He asked what I wanted to target and told me to contact him when I got to town to confirm. I arrived Sunday night, gave him a call and set the date for Tuesday. On Monday night, he called me and... More

We took a trip with Captain Tom last summer, we are a family of four with two young boys. My husband explained this on the phone and that we were complete fishing novices so would need help and guidance. He said this would be no problem. On the day itself Tom gave us the bare minimum service. True we caught... More

We caught "Loads of Fish" but I was not chatty enough with thier very young children. I dont really know what to say to that. If I was a blabbermouth and we did not catch a bunch of fish I would expect them to be very dissappointed. It is difficult to be everything to everyone. I am sorry they did... More
