They never shared that they were waiting on someone else to book them for the same day - and so we proceeded with them in good faith for a party we were taking, and then at the last moment got an EMAIL stating they had our day booked "sorry" but could move us to the day before. Not good. And... More

The ride out is fun. As we got to the island we were informed of the do's and dont's. we... More

The water was very salty and the visibility was very poor underwater which made snorkeling no fun at all. Not for beginning swimmers (they drop you into 9 feet of water and don't supply a life vest). This experience doesn't compare to snorkeling in the Caribbean.

Our family of seven had a marvelous time on Charile's Charters to Egmont Key. We collected shells, explored Fort Dade ruins, snorkeled, and even found Sand Dollars! The crew was fabulous, helpful, and informative. They provided bottled water for the trip and snorkel gear. Laurel picked us up directly from our condo and returned us there afterward. She, too, was... More

We decided to go on the snorkling/shell/ dophin trip for 4 hours, BEST $ spent on our entire trip to Florida! Capt. Dennis and First mate Chris were very knowledgeable about the area and very entertaining. Saw a bunch of dolphins and snorkled for the first time. Will definately do this again! Best value attraction in all of Florida!

The captain and the tour guide were very helpful. The location where we met the boat was easy to find. Egmont Key is fascinating and the boat ride is a lot of fun. I recommend that you visit Egmont Key and that when you do you travel with Charlie's Charters!
