Half Day Private Boat Tour / Snorkeling - We had a great time on our Half Day Private Boat Tour with Jessie. Jessie was super friendly, knowledgeable a good boat captain and tour guide. I took the family and we snorkeled on Alligator Reef and Chicks and Hens reef. We saw a large dolphin pod off Alligator reef and we stopped in the mangroves to see a manatee just hanging out under the mangrove trees. A fun boat ride to each location and really good to be on a private tour with Jessie. Thanks Jessie we had a great time with you on the private boat tour around points in Islamorada. We found that a number of locals were familar with you too ... you are popular.

A “must” during your keys trip - My friend and I went out with captain Sam this week and all I can say is “wow!” Captain Sam is a master behind the wheel and knows all the good spots for snorkeling and sightseeing. Captain Sam is native to the keys and it shows- excellent trip and would highly recommend!

Family Sunset cruise - Our sunset cruise was awesome. Samantha is so knowledgeable, funny, and accommodating. The mangrove tour was amazing. Unfortunately we didn’t see any dolphins but would definitely cruise with Samantha again.

Great way to see the ocean around Islamorada - My husband and I had a great time with Samantha on this trip! She took us to great locations around Islamorada. We saw manatees, dolphins, all kinds of fish, a ship wreck, then mangroves and at the end of the trip she set up the boat to have the dolphins surf our wake. It was a truly amazing trip. In addition, Samantha is very knowledgable about the ocean and the wildlife in the keys. We highly recommend this trip and try to book it with Samantha.

Great 3-hour snorkeling/eco-tour combo for 2! - We had a great time on our private 3-hour snorkeling/eco-tour combo adventure. We saw tons of vibrantly colored fish and sea turtles while snorkling at Cheeca Rocks, and a brown shark and lots of pretty birds among the mangroves during the eco-tour. Captain Sam is very knowledgeable about the water, the sea-life, the birds and the vegetation. She was very diligent about keeping an eye on the weather, days before and during our adventure, to make sure the winds and rain did not spoil anything. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

If you had a local friend with a boat, this is what they would do. - We were a party of three couples scrambling to fill a cancelled trip by another boat. Saw KeyZ moored up a Robbie's Marina and gave them a call. Captain Sam was like having a local friend who knows the water and marine life like the back of her hand. She took us both to places she suggested (reefs and a sandbar boat party spots) and places we were curious about (locations from the show Bloodline.) Everyone on the docks knew her and it speaks volumes that they all treated her like a friend and called her by name. If you want a safe and flexible tour that does not feel rushed or shilled up to be a fake party, this is it. We did not have kids with us, but I imagine this would have been a very good choice for a medium sized family as well.

Awesome Boat Tour of Islamorada - We had a great time on our Half Day Private Boat Tour with Captain Sam. She was super friendly, knowledgeable and just fun to be around. She made it seem like we were just out for a boat ride with an old friend. We snorkeled a reef, hung out at the sandbar, saw manatees, saw toilet seat cut and had simply an awesome boat ride. Thanks Captain Sam for what was one of our favorite activities while we were in Islamorada.
