“Great Fun! The highlight of our Key West trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

On July 29, our family of five enjoyed our trip with Capt Tom. We started out fishing then moved to a new area to snorkel. Capt Tom knew just where to go to see the big stingrays. Lastly we went to a local sand bar for some relaxation. Every stop seemed better than the previous. Capt Tom really knows the local area and just where to go for everyone on the boat to have fun. While the fishing and snorkeling where great, the sand bar stop is an absolute must. It was simply amazing.

“Fishing, Snorkeling, and More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

My family was coming in on a cruise ship and wanted to escape the sometimes crowded cruise ship excursions. I located this tour on the web and proceeded to call Capt. Tom. He was very helpful in explaining the trip and gave us several options on activities we may enjoy during the day. How we spent the day was up to us.

We arrived on July 24 and found a cab(most are pink) to transport us to a nearby marina($10 total) where Capt. Tom was preparing his boat. The boat was beautiful, very clean and modern. We walked over to the small marina store to grab and few drinks and use the restroom. He supplied cold water and all the fishing equip., snorkel, floats.

Our 12 year old was new to fishing so the Capt. gave him a lesson. He took us to 3 different spots where we caught at least 20 fish(6 different types). He was patient and knowledgeable. After a couple hours of fishing we opted to visit a sandbar and snorkel and relax. A sandbar is a shallow area (4 1/2 ft deep) in the middle of the ocean, with blue, crystal clear water. Snorkeling around the edges where it becomes deeper allowed us to see schools of colorful fish.

Sadly, it was time to return. After a 20 min ride back, Capt Tom let us off at a different marina where we could walk back to the cruise ship. We would definitely do this trip again, as Capt Tom says"the fishing is even better in the cooler months"haha. Recommended to all.

“Our Favorite Part of Our Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Easy Day Charters was a perfect choice for our vacation. Capt. Tom was very receptive to our needs. We had a friend who had never snorkeled before and he truly made her feel comfortable with the experience. His boat was very nice and he knew just where to take us. He designed our trip where we explored and relaxed on a sandbar, snorkeled and watched dolphins in the wild. It was a perfect, relaxing day. Thanks Capt.

“Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

My wife and I are on our honeymoon and we just went out with capt. Tom and capt. Wade. We had no idea what we would since I wanted to fish and she wanted to snorkel. It didn't matter because capt. Tom made sure that we not only fished, snorkeled, swam and had beers on the sand bar, buthe also took us by the local pod of dolphins on our way in. He was extremely polite and patient. We will be going out with him again, possibly even on this trip! Capt. Wade was along with us and he will be starting his own charter again here soon so he will also be a captain to look for when wanting to spend a day out on the water, he was just as knowledgable and kind as capt. Tom, they both were awesome when it came to helping my wife fish because this was only her second time trying.
