“Another Easy Day. . .”
Reviewed June 8, 2010

We were recently in Key West for our second visit and looking forward to many of the things that we had done last year. High on our list was another trip out with Captain Tom on Easy Day Charters. It was a little windy, so we focussed on fishing. Capt. Tom was able to find calm water and patiently got our kids back up to speed with the fishing gear (we don't get to fish often). The water was a little warmer than last time--there wasn't a fish every cast (like last time); but we caught plenty! The highlight was the 16 pound mutton snapper my oldest caught on a 12# line! Capt. Tom cleaned the fish for us and we took it to a local restaurant where they prepare the fish that you catch either blackened, fried, or grilled. I found out that a lot of the local restaurants will do this! I highly recommend Easy Day Charters for a great day of boating and fishing for the whole family!

“Capt Tom is the best”
Reviewed June 8, 2010

We took a trip with Capt Tom and another couple a week ago. Capt. Tom customized a trip to our desires. We spent time dolphin watching, snorkeling and letting it all hang out, swimming, wading and having some adult beverages on a private sand bar. Capt. Tom's flexibility and attention to our interests made the trip special. His boat is also first class. (We have been on some others that were older and not half as clean and neat as his). Whatever your interests... rest assured that Capt. Tom will be respectful of any of your needs and wants and make your day memorable.

Two thumbs up for Capt Tom.

“Awesome day on the water!”
Reviewed June 5, 2010

I just returned from a long weekend in Key West, during which I was responsible for entertaining 10 to 15 people every day. Captain Tom of Easy Day charters made one day a cinch! We took 10 people out on two boats for a day of fishing, snorkeling and enjoying the beautiful crystal clear waters. We caught enough fish to feed 15 people. We saw schools of rays, including a huge Manta Ray and some spotted eagle rays.

Captain Tom and his fellow captain, Jamie, knew there stuff! The locations they picked were incredible. The sand bar they took us too was unbelievable! We could have stayed out there for hours (and we might have!) Thank you Captain Tom! We all had such a great time, we've decided to make it a permenant feature of our annual Memorial Day weekend in Key West.

Tom was great. He made sure we had a very memorable trip. He will customize a trip to meet your interests. Very highly recommended.

PS. Don't listen to the media hype about the oil spill. The water is clean and clear.

“Fun under the Sun”
Reviewed May 28, 2010

After a trip with a larger catamoran last year, we decided that we would never go out on another trip where there were more than a hundred people in the water at the same time. We booked a full day trip with Easy Day Charter, since they met our criteria of flexibility with what we wanted to do and the extra shade canopy for the extra fair skinned indivduals in our group. Noone went home disappointed. Although Capt Tom could not go with us, he set us up with another boat captain using his boat. She was full of energy and sass from the moment we met her. The day was spent as we wanted, starting with a visit to the Dolphin's playground where we saw at least 5 pods. Since there were 6 foot swells, we couldn't get to the reef, but found 2 other local sites with great visibility. The fish eventually found shelter under the boat, and I had so many fish surrounding me that I accidentally bumped my head into the boat. We also spent some time fishing where we caught at least 10 fish in an hour. Eventually, we had to head back to Key West where we waved at the crowd at Mallory Square, and then found a quiet, serene spot in the harbor for the sunset. Just as another boat was going to cross in front of us, the captain moved the boat out of the way so that we could have a clear view of the sun sinking into the ocean. We're already looking forward to going again next year.
