Tarpon Diem

619 Front St
Key West FL, United States

Welcome to Tarpon Diem an Owner Operated Key West Flats Fishing Charter. Conveniently located two blocks from Duval St in downtown Key West at the Galleon Resort and Marina.

When you charter with Tarpon Diem you are fishing the Key West Flats with me, captain Chad Will. I am the owner operator who came to Key West in 2000 and have been honing my fishing prowess since then.

You are not booking with some large faceless charter company who cares more about their bottom line than they do your good time. I know how important this trip is for you.

This may be your only chance this year to get on the water or for some of you it may be your only chance ever.

That’s why it is so important to me that you have good time and make a memory that will last for a lifetime.

I can’t promise that the fish will always bite but I can promise that I will work hard for you and have a great attitude while I do it.

So come on down and see the unspoiled back country, fish the flats and experience Key West!

Captain Chad was a great guide, put us on Tarpin, Permit, Snapper, Grouper, and Barracuda all in a 3/4 day on the water. Was a great day of fishing, extremely knowledgeable and was a pleasure to fish with. I am a seasoned Keys fisherman, and it was my girlfriends first time fishing saltwater. He was very good at showing her the techniques and ensured we got on to several tarpon. We had a blast, would highly recommend!
