Our crew headed by Captain Branza on Saturday 11/13 was amazing. Great snorkeling and the kayaking was such fun. We got to see so much wildlife up close while kayaking. I would highly recommend.

We had a great time on our trip. We raised sails on our way out to the reef to snorkel which was cool. Our captain Bronco and crew Rose and Ashley were very attentive and hospitable. We had a small group which was nice. Kayaking was also a lot of fun.

Best daytime excursion we had all week! Bronza and Ellen totally made this day a blast! They really pack a full day of fun into a half day! We saw a turtle, hammer head shark, lots of colorful fish! Kayaking the Mangroves was educational and interesting! Extra bonus we got Drone footage from Bronza that came out awesome!

Captain Mary and the crew of Rose and Logan were outstanding on our 10/20/21 trip. They were well organized, patient and very safe. The morning trip was fantastic and we would sail with them again. Thank you for a great experience.

This was our favorite day in Key West! The crew were amazing and knew all the good places to kayak, snorkel and see dolphins. Their level of service, knowledge and friendliness was above and beyond. We can't wait to come back and plan to do this charter every time we visit! Thank you to the crew for the wonderful memories!
