Did a half day charter on the Wild Wave with my family!  Captain Tom asked my daughter what she wanted to catch.  She said "a shark"!!

Captain Tom took us out and we caught sharks... Just like that!

His crew (Brian) and Tom were OUTSTANDING!  They communicated very well, took care of our needs, and were great to my kids!  

Highly recommend the Wild Wave if you have a party of 6.

I did a fair amount of research before choosing Wild Wave over some of the other outfitters in the area, and I'm thrilled I chose these guys! I went salmon fishing mid July for a half- day in the morning. Tom and the deck hand were very helpful. The main reason why I chose this outfitter was due to cost (in line with the rest) as well as the size of the boating party (6 Max). You don't want to go on a boat with 15-30 other people if you're serious about catching (and bringing home fish). Our boat caught 5 (lost one netting) with 6 people on board. I'll post some pics of the salmon...I went home with a 27 and 12 pounder :)
