The address on his website is wrong. Captain claims that he can’t change the address. As of this writing he’s at 550 Port o Way Road. The price listed for 4 persons was $450 when you add extra people that’s $50 more but the website doesn’t break down the upcharge. Once the transaction is complete it appears as if you’ve been charged an extra $100. We had a party of six, he and his first mate were very personable even though the boat was a little tight with all the people. We had a rough ride that day and the fishing was turned off from weather change. If you’re expecting a captain to call off the trip due to bad weather or bad fishing this is not the place to look. If the weather would have been good this would have been the best deal in town. The captain’s a local and been fishing Naples his whole life, he loves to fish, he’s great with kids and knows how to operate.

Cap’t Phil and Tarpon Tamers were the highlight of our vacation! 
We started catching fish right off the bat.  As soon as things slowed down he moved us to another area where they were biting again.  And he was so enjoyable to be with - he was patient teaching us what we needed to know, encouraged us when we were getting the hang of it, and really worked hard to make sure we caught as many fish as possible.  We had such a great time with him.  We highly recommend!

I really enjoyed this adventure. My family and I are very new to fishing. Bill was very patient, a great teacher and has a nice way about him. The boat was tidy and all of the supplies were top notch. We will definitely be booking with Bill again next year.

Thanks to Captain Dan for a fun half day fishing.  Unfortunately, the fish weren’t biting, and ended up catching a few catfish.  Saw the Tarpon rolling, but they wouldn’t play ball.  Captain Dan tried his hardest.  We did catch the police who stopped us to check all OK, they are keen.  All in all a good morning out on the water.

I will tell that this Captain is very nice! We experienced bad ruff weather the day before. Phil called us the night before and recommended it was not good fishing! He refunded our deposit which was great! I have never had a captain do this! Phil I’m sorry we have not had a chance to meet, but I promise you in the future we will be using charter in the future!

Went fishing on Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Absolutely a fantastic experience, thoroughly recommend!! Captain Phil is awesome and very knowledgable. Within 30 mins we were on the king mackerel. 6-7 caught 20-30lbs. Many more strikes and lots of action throughout the 4 hour trip. The boat is great, the captain and mate are both awesome. If you are in or around Naples do look up Captain Phil - you will not be disappointed!!

Excellent trip! Capt. Phil and first mate Tim both made the trip a great experience. We did a full day trip so they took us about 45 miles offshore to a wreck. We immediately caught fish including a 25 inch yellowtail snapper. I asked about goliath grouper and before i knew it the captain had pulled out a thick rod,  hooked a 2 1/2 pound bait and told me to get ready! My first goliath weighed ~150 lbs and made for some great pics. He told me thats a baby and rebaited for another. w/in 10 min I had another monster on this one was over 300lbs. Made for great photos. We came home with over 30 snapper/grouper/ kings to eat. Would highly recommend this charter without reservation. Randy D

Captain Phil first mate Tim were great! They were Extremely knowledgable and helped us novice fisherman get the most out of the experience.  The only drawback was the weather as we did not get to go offshore as we had planned.  I would highly recommend the Tarpon Tamer for your next fishing charter in Naples.

Even though I only caught one fish and missed a nice tarpon, the conditions were bad which had nothing to do with the quality of the trip. We saw a lot of cool marine animals and the captain and first mate were very knowledgeable. Next time I come to Naples I will choose to use them again and get that trophy tarpon.
