Captain Patrick and Meredith were wonderful! The Catamaran was much nicer than I anticipated and my friends and I all fit comfortably! We went out for a half day for my bachelorette party and he took us out on the open water, to a sandbar where we were able to get in the water and swim. There was also a food boat we were able to order snacks from! He then ended our tour in a mangrove area where we were able to paddle board and kayak. He had tons of water and snacks for us too! 10/10 FABULOUS TIME!

Excellent experience, comfortable double-decker bus with bathroom, good air conditioning, I will make a stop before entering the Keys for breakfast in about 20 minutes and then 3 hours to downtown Key West where we have 6 hours of free time and enjoy wonderful historical places and restaurants, highly recommended.

Was worth it the tour guide thought we were doing another activity and when he figured out he took us to the wrong place he told us where to go and made sure we made it to our activity . So good job

Great experience, the tour bus is good and the staff funny! Key west is really something to do!
