“Relaxing and peaceful excursion! Great customer service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We planned a Sunset Dolphin Cruise with Captain Tom months in advance of our trip. Captain Tom was great with replying to emails and answering all of our many questions!

A few weeks before our trip, Captain Tom let us know he was no longer available on our arranged date. He gave us several options, including going out with a different Captain, changing our dates, or cancelling and receiving a full refund. We opted to keep our reservation and go out with Captain Wade - we're glad we did!

We had an amazing 3-4 hours out on the beautiful boat. It is super clean and in mint condition. Captain Wade was great, giving us information about the wildlife we saw, and the local area. He provided water, and there was a cooler available for our use if we wanted it. He also provided noodle-style float devices, snorkel masks,life vests and water fins.

Captain Wade took us out to a sandbar miles out into the Gulf of Mexico, where we were able to get off the boat and float around in the crystal clear water, which was up to our waists. He then took us to a reef to snorkel. Unfortunately the water was a little choppy in that area, making it murky, but it was still great to see.

We unfortunately did not see any dolphins, despite Captain Wade's best efforts. He even called some other Captains he knew to see if they had seen anything, but we still had no luck. We stayed out on the boat and watched the sunset, and then went back to the Marina.

A great experience which I highly recommend.

“Highlight of Our Trip to the Keys For Sure!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

My two kids (7 and 8) and I vactioned in the Keys this past August. We stayed in Islamorada and made the 80 mile trip (one way) for a 4 hour afternoon charter. It was the highlight of or stay in the Keys!! Captain Tom is super flexible which was a big reason I booked with him as I was not 100% sure what the kids would want to do or focus on that day. I wanted them to experience the snorkeling, the fishing, the shelling, and anything else that might come up and Tom was totally okay with that! He cater's to all activities, ages, backgrounds, experience levels etc and the kids felt very comfortable on the boat which is immaculate with plenty of shade for hot days. My kids had so much fun that as we were leaving Key West for the 80 mile trip back to Islamorada, they both asked if we could drive back the next day and go again!! I did too but just not enough time. The kids keep talking about the fishing, snorkeling, seeing sting rays, and diving for sand dollars. We will definielty be back next summer and charter with Captain Tom!! And don't forget your underwater camera!!

“Captain Wade made the day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We were 3 couples looking for a day of fun on the water with snorkeling as our primary focus. The first spot we were taken to was cloudy without much chance at getting to see what we wanted. Without being asked Capt. Wade changed the plans and took us to the most pristine waters to be found! We were thrilled to also be taken to a beautiful live patch reef where we viewed vibrant coral formations, lionfish, stingrays, and countless varieties of fish. Captain Wade was full of knowledge about the local areas and careful about helping to keep the natural beauty untouched. He was extremely accomodating and loads of fun. Thanks for a wonderful adventure!

“Good Family Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

My family and I had a great time out on the water with Captain Tom. We had been on one of the other 100 people at a time snorkeling boats and Easy Day Charters is hands down the better way to go! Captain Tom was great giving us options and suggestions so that we could decide exactly where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We had a great day snorkeling on the reef and truly enjoyed our very personalized trip experience. We brought our lunch and drinks with us and there was a cooler on board for our use. The marina is easy to find, free parking and the boat was super clean and comfortable. Thanks again to Captain Tom!!! You Rock!

“Best Boat Charter For a Couples Get-Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

My husband and I have booked twice with Tom at Easy Day Charter. We loved being out on the water - fishing, snorkeling and swimming. It is the perfect mix of relaxation and activity. Tom is easy to work with (accommodating and always on time!), - and his boat is sooooo clean. We're going back to Key West this spring and will definately book early to make sure we can get on Tom's boat again. This time I know we won't need to bring our beach umbrella!
