When visitors think of Orlando and the Central Florida area they imagine the exciting theme parks, thrilling rides and one-of-a-kind attractions.

It offers visitors a different experience of Florida and the Orlando area than they are used to.

Hop on board his 18’ Ranger skiff, that can have you and 2 friends fish comfortably from without tangling lines. With a 150 HP Suzuki engine, and Capt. Tom’s extensive knowledge, you’ll be on top of the fish all day.

On the menu are Redfish, Trout, Snook, Tarpon, Grouper, Snapper, Sharks and many other species. Captain Tom will provide everything you’ll need for an adventure of a lifetime. He will teach you about the techniques he uses to catch these fish while explaining the different wildlife you’ll see.

This is a family-friendly environment for kids and adults of all ages. No matter your skill level, you are welcome on board.

You are welcome to bring along food and drink – let the captain know before the trip if you are bringing refreshments, and he will prepare a cooler on board with ice for you to put your goodies into.
