Captain Tony Catalfamo

The Fantasy

Captain Tony Catalfamo has fished the Atlantic Ocean for most of his life. Previously in corporate management for several years in Boston, Captain Tony has been a professional captain in Islamorada for over 10 years. He searched for 7 years for the perfect location in which to fulfill his dream of being the Captain of the charter boat Fantasy, a beautiful 38' custom sportfisherman. In 1980 he discovered the Florida Keys while fishing in Islamorada, and found the location for which he had been searching. In 1986, Captain Tony and his wife Debbie left Massachusetts on the Fantasy even before they had a slip secured! On their trip down the Intercoastal, they called Whale Harbor Marina every day to see if a slip had become available. While enroute, one phone call brought good news -- a slip had become available, and a friend had put a deposit on it for them. He has been permanently located at Whale Harbor Marina since that time. Captain Tony's dream was certainly no 'fantasy'!smiley face
Captain Tony has an excellent reputation in the Florida Keys, and is quite well-known and respected throughout the keys. Young anglers are welcome, in fact families are encouraged, so you can make this a great family outing! Whether a novice or an experienced angler, your charter will be an experience to remember for a lifetime. Captain Tony is happy to catch and release at the angler's request. He is a strong advocate of billfish conservation. He is very proud of his release record, and will not kill any sailfish or sportfish so that they can provide enjoyment to anglers for years to come. For information or to book Captain Tony, contact us at the Florida Captains' Page.
