Key West, Florida
A trip to Key West ticks many of the boxes on every traveler's bucket list. There is an amazing variety of marine life, including colorful tropical fish, sea sponges, bottlenose dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, and much more. Snorkelers will relish a visit to Florida's coral reef, the world's third-largest living coral reef. Consider taking a boat charter out to the Dry Tortugas National Park for snorkeling, and be sure to get your National Park passport stamp.
There is a laid-back vibe here that transports you from the stress of everyday life. Leave your shoes at the hotel, grab a fruity little umbrella drink and leave your worries behind. Take a sunset cruise to watch the absolutely stunning sunsets. Take part in the legendary nightlife. You may be surprised to know that Key West actually has the most bartenders per capita in the nation. There is also a lively food scene here. Don't forget to save room for the Key Lime Pie for dessert!
If lounging on the beach is not for you, there are many historical sites to visit. Take time to climb to the top of the lighthouse, which was built in 1847. Several good museums here are dedicated to the famous people who called this charming place home.
Frequently asked questions
It has a flushable marine toilet for liquids only. The boat also has fresh water rinse so you can rinse yourself from salt water.

We have an iced cooler with bottled waters and sodas. You’re welcome to bring your own drinks, beers and snacks.
2. IF WE HAVE 3 ADULTS AND 4 SMALL CHILDREN CAN WE HIRE YOUR BOAT?
Unfortunately not. We are limited to 6 passengers per our license and each child counts as one just like adults.
3. IF WE HAVE A PARTY OF 10 OR 11 AND REALLY WANT TO GO TO THE SANDBAR CAN YOU HELP US?
Yes. We can subcontract another boat for you with another captain from a trusted vendor. We would run side by side and raft up on the sandbar so you can spend that time together.
4. ARE WE GOING TO SEE DOLPHINS, MANATEES AND OTHER MARINE LIFE ON THIS TRIP?
There is always a chance for that and we often do, however we can’t promise that you’ll see them because they swim around freely and do not hang out in the same place.
5. DO YOU DO FISHING TRIPS?
We do not. We are not a fishing charter and we think that our boat is just too pretty to have smelly fish guts all over it.
6. WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
48hrs before the scheduled boat trip to get a full refund if you happen to change your plans. All our trips are weather permitting so we reserve the right to cancel your trip if we don’t think that conditions are safe – in this case you would get full refu
