Islescapes is an incredible gourmet dinner hosting a maximum of 6 guests on a beautiful motor yacht. Everything is cooked fresh on a huge grill right in front of you and served on white linens and beautiful china. The service is impeccable and the food is fantastic!

This was our 2nd dinner cruise with Capt Alex, the first being 6 years ago. It is a wonderful trip and he is an incredible chef. The only bad thing was that I ate a big lunch and wasn't hungry enough. You are on a small boat with the most six guests total. This is nice rather than being with... More

First off, this dinner ain't cheap. But in this case, you get what you pay for, and then some. Start off with you own private yacht for two, or three at most, couples. Add a location not far from Mallory square for boarding. And then, add Captain Alex and his very competent and inviting crew. Oh, and did I say... More

Captain Alex was professional, friendly, easy-going, and an excellent host and chef. His first mate (missed her name) was super nice as well. We celebrated my wife's birthday. It was so nice to be away from the busy-ness of the city and tourists. One other couple there with us. We had a wonderful evening. We recommend the fresh catch of... More

Captain Alex and his crew (of one) were totally amazing!!! The food was out of this world - unimaginable that it could all be prepared about ship. Although the sunset wasn't as spectacular as it could have been the evening, the sail, the food and the company could not have been more so. Not to mention one of the other... More

45th anniversary dinner, and shared with couple celebrating 42nd, so only 4 on trip instead of party boat trip. Capt. Alex and First Mate welcomed us and made us all feel very special with attention to detail. The cruising was highly enjoyable and beautiful, and when he anchored for dinner was the start of the best part. The food was... More

Capt Alex and First Mate Lauren did an outstanding job to provide a fab experience for our group of 6. Great food, beautiful scenery and attentive hospitality. Would recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful night out with a fantastic view.

I surprised my husband for his 50th birthday with a trip to Key West last week, and I found Islescapes on Trip Advisor. This is a MUST DO for your trip!! Incredibly beautiful views, delicious Yellowtail Snapper dinner, excellent appetizers, and a VERY thoughtful birthday candle on my husband's dessert. This was our absolute favorite experience while on vacation, and... More

Our dinner cruise with Captain Alex was the highlight of our honeymoon in the Florida Keys. It has an incredible 5 course meal, beautiful scenery, and Captain Alex creates a very enjoyable atmosphere. This cruise is an unique experience you don't to miss!

We had a wonderful 5 course meal and most relaxing time on Captain Alex's Sunset Dinner cruise! The hospitality was top notch and the small setting with two other couples was very enjoyable! Captain Alex even showed off his skills in saving a wallet that fell overboard which we were so thankful for! It is a must try while in... More

Our trip went like this. We were greeted by Captain Alex, dirty clothes and unshaven. Upon entering boat we were given no coast guard required safety talk, I have no idea if his boat even has life vests on it. We went out about 5 minutes into the middle of an anchorage full of dilapidated boats and anchored for dinner.... More

Wow, I guess I'm glad I had a haircut! If you had told me you didn't enjoy your trip, I would have refunded your money immediately but when got off of the boat saying it was fine, there isn't much I can do. I will be happy to refund your money now, just call me. I work very hard to... More
