Captain Chad Will, Owner of Tarpon Diem Charters




Key West is unlike any other place in the United States. It Is a tropical island which must be experienced from the water to fully enjoy what we have to offer. Just north of the islands I call home is the back country. The Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge is over 130,000 acres of untouched natural beauty. It is the only place in the world where Great white heron exists. It is home to many migratory birds, turtles, dolphin, and of course fish. Channels cutting through gorgeous white flats leading to wide open basins surrounded by mangrove islands. This seemingly tranquil environment is contrasted by the life and death dance going on just under the surface. Permit, bonefish, barracudas, ladyfish, trout, cravalle jacks, andsharks all just looking for an opportunity to eat. Opportunities I am all to willing to give them which give you the  opportunities to  catch a fish of a lifetime. This fishing mecca offers world class fishing opportunities all year round. You don’t have to be an expert to catch a greatfish you just have to get down here and see what opportunities present themselves.


When you charter Tarpon Diem you are not chartering some large multiple boat company with hired captains that is more worried about profits than they are your good time. You will be fishing with me Captain Chad and I pridemyself with making every effort to see that you have a great time and leave wanting to come back with me the next time you are here. The fish may not always cooperate but you will leave my boat knowing that I tried everything I could to show you good time on the water. If what I am doing isn’t working I will try something else or stick with it if that’s what you want. I am not fishing for myself. I am fishing for you. Some people come down here every yearsome only get the chance to be here once either way I want you leave my boat with a memory you will cherish for the rest of your life.
