If you are looking for a fishing trip of a lifetime, this is it! I have sent my husband on many fishing excursions in exotic venues like The Seychelles, Tahiti etc. and this trip ranked up there with those trips. Captain Mickey Volcan went out of his way to get the charter organized for us. My husband caught a huge wahoo and several beautiful mahi mahi and bonito. He was thrilled with his trip. Ask for Captain Mickey Volcan at the Hilton Marina in Ft. Lauderdale. His website is www.taylormadeoceanadventures.com. Truly, a trip to remember!

Lisa and I travelled to the Florida Keys with 5 girls to celebrate their high school graduation. Captain Mickey and Dillon did not disappoint! The girls were treated to an ultimate trip aboard the Acura Jigger. We all enjoyed all that the yacht has to offer. Mickey surprised the girls with a reception in the cabin when they arrived. The salon was decorated with Congratulations and Happy Graduation! The girls enjoyed sunbathing and touring the beautiful waters of Key West. The yacht was docked in a wonderful marina where the girls could enjoy the yacht and all that Key West has to offer. Thank you Captain Mickey and Dillon for an unforgettable graduation experience for our girls! Lisa and Cathy, Kennedy, Caitlyn, MegAnne, Ellen and Miranda

Capt. Mickey and Johnny work their butts off, put us on the fish right away. They made sure we all had a good time. We did and fish and cruise 8 hour deal and it was great.

Mickey nugget: "a great fishing trip is not about the boat, but the people on the boat." With TMOA we found both in great multitude. A luxurious yacht that doubles as a state of the art fishing charter, plus a crew that by the end of the trip you think should definitely come to your house for Christmas... Thanks for a great day, plentiful fish, and great company, from your Tropic Seas Resort friends and neighbors!!

Taylor Made Ocean Adventures, has a way of making dreams come true.

This was Jeff and I's second time out on the Acura Jigger and we had a dream list for Mickey that included a Hammerhead (he laughed) and Mahi Mahi. When we arrived the boat was ready and stocked with live bait. On our way out, we caught a few "warm-up fish", saw Dolphins swimming alongside the boat, and I even got a little yoga in on the bow, then we set our sights on catching the Mahi Mahi. Mickey was diligent about watching the radar and listening to the radio chatter. After a couple hours of no luck, we put on our rally caps and Mickey turned the boat to head further south. Within minutes we had a fish on and it was taking a lot of line. Johnny, his mate, knew this was going to be a fighter and put the belt around my waist and was in my ear the whole time making sure we didn't lose the fish.

After 45 minutes, we finally saw what all the hard work was for a Hammerhead Shark!!! Well that shark didn't like the sight of our boat, and dove back down at least another 100 ft and really started fighting for its life. An hour later, with Johnny's coaching and Mickey's driving, we pulled a dream fish on board. The shark was tired and knew we had won the battle. He laid still for many pictures and a measurement before we released him back into the ocean.

Later, that evening, still celebrating, we found out how remarkable that catch was. The expertise of this crew, helped bring in a 7 ft Hammerhead Shark on a spinner reel and a 20 lb line, Johnny even commented he'd never seen a woman battle a shark and win.

Taylor Made Ocean Adventures is the company we will always turn to when we go Deep Sea fishing. We can't wait until our next trip, so we can catch that Mahi Mahi.

Thanks again for a day beyond anything in dreams!

Christine and Jeff
