Captain Tom and Brian were great. We did the half day and loved the trip. We showed up at 6am and they were there and ready to get us boarded to go fishing. They're both really friendly, really helpful and were all smiles trying to find us some salmon and they definitely succeeded. We had 6 on and landed 4 including one monster. Brian cleaned the fish while we were out fishing and then filleted them for us when we got back to the pier and Captain Tom bagged them for us Replique Montre.

The boat was great too - perfect size for a group of 6. They had a working toilet, extra warm clothes, and snacks. It was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks Captain Tom & Brian!

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 :)
