Master Captain Tom Serbin

    Owner/Operator, Captain Tom is born and raised in Chicago. He serves the city proudly as a Firefighter/Paramedic, and when he's not doing what he loves for the City, he can be found at the one place that fills his soul............ON A BOAT!  

    With over 15 years of experience fishing, boating, and SCUBA Diving on the Great Lakes, Tom is a 100 Ton Master Captain, and certified Recreational and Public Safety Dive Instructor with SDI/ERDI.

    His experience as a commercial tour boat Captain at Navy Pier, Operator the Chicago Fire Department Dive/Rescue Boat, and Dive Instructor has logged him hundreds of hours of sea time every season on Chicago's waterways.  The invaluable knowledge, and experience he has of these waters makes every trip with the "Skipper" second to none! 


"There is only one thing I love more than being on the water, it's being able to share this passion for the outdoors with others.  Loving what I do makes it easy to put in the time and effort needed to run a professional service and enjoyable charter boat experience for all of my customers."

  ~Capt. Tom Serbin
