Great tour! Met up with Capt. Mike at the marina. We liked that he gave a very informative safety briefing before leaving the dock. Was very interested in accommodating what YOU want to see. Told him we were interested in shipwrecks and "The Grotto" rock formation areas. He made sure to hit all the notes. The Tre Anni (the boat) is small but was comfortable and made her way well through Georgian Bay. (Happy we took Captain Mike's advice to dress in layers for our mid May trip) Mike's knowledge of the history of the wrecks and lore of Flower Pot Island was entertaining and informative. My family and I are glad we did the tour!

Mike was amazing! He gave us a great tour, and got us right up to the sites. We had an amazing time, and look forward to being back and faking an even longer tour!

We’re so happy we chose to do a private boat tour rather than boarding one of the larger boats with so many people. Mike was an amazing captain. He took great care of us and was very knowledgeable. There’s no better way to see the beauty of the Tobermory area. We highly recommend this tour. We had three teens with us and they too, loved it.

The five of us and the dog had a great time with Captain Mike today on our Fathom Five Fishing Tour, what an experience! We went out for 3 hours and got a wonderful tour of the Georgian Bay shoreline, passing sweet spots like Little Cove, the Grotto and Cave Point. So beautiful! Captain Mike provided us with lifejackets, bottled water, warm wind jackets, and extra pants if we got cold. He was great with my three teens and offered for them to play songs they liked on his speaker system...they had a blast. Captain Mike showed one of the girls how to steer the boat and she just loved it! He took pictures and videos for us and showed us how to use his fish detecting devices, it was very interesting. Still, the best part was when we caught a 5 pound King salmon for dinner, delicious! He even filleted it and cleaned it for us and put it in ziplock bags. He also did a great job answering all of our questions about hikes to do in the area and gave us some new exciting adventure ideas for next year at the cottage. This will definitely be a new favourite activity for summers here in Tobermory!

Amazing day on the stunning waters and up close views of the national park. Beautiful new boat and Captain Mike knows the area very well and all the history of the park and shipwrecks. Great to get away from the usual tourist areas and have stunning remote cliffs and beaches to ourselves. Very memorable experience.

When all Hope is gone Mike took us to prime destinations for Slammin salmon and sure enough we landed a beautiful 10 pound 28 inch Atlantic salmon!!!!

I was so happy to bring this fish onto the boat. Thanks captain Mike you are the bees knees.

Mike was gracious enough to fillet the fish for us immediately after our tour. Yum Yum.

We took a private tour to Flower Pot Island to see the sight. Mike shared a lot of great information. He is very knowledgeable about the area and history. The boat is comfortable and fast, so we were able to see a lot in a short time. Highly recommend his private tours and fishing tours which my husband enjoyed too!

Best way to experience/see a little bit of everything out on the water with Mike. Nothing better than a private tour with a local who knows all the good spots!

Fathom Five Tours was totally worth it. Mike was friendly and super accommodating. He's very safety conscious and prepared, which made us feel reassured. We specifically went out on a sightseeing/fishing combo trip. We were checking out the shoreline while targeting Salmon at the same time. Epic!! Tobermory is, for sure, best seen from the water on a private tour. Even better when we caught a Salmon at the end of the trip!! Thanks, Mike!!
