We are a fun, family oriented private Charter boat that takes people on excursions of the upper Florida keys. We go to Indian Key to do Critter-Finding with the kids and explore the historical park. We also do fishing in the local patch reefs and snorkeling at some of the great snorkel spots. We train everyone on snorkeling so you can be a beginner. We also go looking for Dolphins, Manatees and Sea Turtles. We can also provide a great bird-watching opportunity with some of the great islands.

We went out on the small deck boat with Capt. Larry snorkeling. I think this was his first time taking folks snorkeling but did so as a favor to a friend. He was professional and helpful to myself and my 13-year-old daughter and 14-year-old nephew. We managed to do some snorkeling and see some fish and Larry was good with... More

We went on the tour with our daughter and son n law, the trip for the scenery and relaxation is worth it alone. They went snorkeling and had a great time. The fishing was not exactly what we expected but perfect if someone had never caught a fish.

Our tour with Captain Larry was great. He gave us a lot of history of the area while we boated around the bay side. We wanted to see a manatee so Larry searched all the hiding places he knew for us to no avail, but he tried really hard. The fishing we did was very exciting and probably more for... More

Where do I begin. The Captain and mate made us feel so welcome. Their knowledge of the surrounding Eco environment coupled with a great grasp of the local history fulfilled every expectation and more. Oh and did I mention Dolphins, Manatees, and Tarpon. The sunset was amazing with pods of Dolphins swimming freely around the boat. The option of champagne... More
