We parked in the parking lot not too far from the docks. We used the public bathrooms to change into our bathing suits although we chose not to swim. We had such a nice trip and saw many dolphins playing around. Captain Ken was lots of fun and great to talk to. It was a trip highlight!

We received a recommendation for this boat from a friend who had visited key west a few months before us. I loved that it was only a group of 6 of us total on the boat - especially when you saw several of the same companies boats packed with tons of people. What this company may lack in glamour -...

We were a bit shocked at the small old craft and only 1 other couple joined us, but we tend to have fun anywhere. Ken (our captain) was crusty and entertaining and full of info. While not what we expected, it's hard not to smile during a beautiful evening on the ocean.

Was a great day on the water,,,we didn't get to see any dolphins thou. Any day on the water is always a great day. Was a bit tough getting the reservation,,communication issues that we were able to fix.

Thank you Angie for the review. I just wanted everyone to know that Angie chose the Sunset cruise and not one of the dolphin trips. We offer two distinctly different types of trips. If you want to go snorkeling and dolphin watching it's the four hour trip. If you are booking the Coastal or Sunset trip that Angie went on,... More

My husband and I were fortunate enough to be the only guests onboard since our friends had to cancel out. Wow. It was like having our own chartered cruise. Kenny was excellent. Knowledge informative professional and he's a "dolphin whisperer". We saw dolphins playing and jumping in and out of water right next to our boat. Highly recommend this adventure

Our family went on a private charter and loved it! Ken is an easy going, funny & informative skipper. Corey was helpful with reservations and any questions I had. Spent 4 hours and saw a pod of dolphins (4), sea turtle & while snorkeling we saw plenty of fish, lobster and a hammerhead shark. Totally worth your time & money... More

We arrived early for a 4 o'clock cruise and watched Ken cleaning up the boat and loading supplies. We were pleasantly surprised that it was a smaller vessel than the monster party boats we had seen roaming the water. As soon as it was ready Ken welcomed us aboard. He sat down and told us a little about himself and... More
