Great experience - A good investment and great way to get out on the water and learn a little more about the ecology of the area. Henry, our guide, was informative, engaging and easy. Saw dolphins (from afar), manatee, and a crocodile plus lots of birds. Highly recommend.

Great boat and captain - Jessie was our captain and we had a great time. Wish we could have seen some Manatees and dolphins but that was not our luck

Beautiful afternoon on the water - Jessie was incredibly knowledgeable and an awesome guide. We were able to see some cool wildlife and of course had an incredible time on the bay and ocean side on the water.

Great customer service and boat ride - Key Z was great to work with. We originally were going to do a snorkel trip but the winds and visibility weren't great. They were proactive in assessing the weather and letting us know our options (including cancelling if we were so inclined). We decided to go out anyway with a shortened time. We had a really lovely couple of hours at sea, and went to a sandbar to swim around. The boat was nice, captain was lovely, and overall great customer service.

Great experience and fun - Awesome trip very informative although the water was a little rough the day we went we still saw two different kinds of turtles and lots of sea life back in the man groves. Jessie was awesome and a great boat pilot and very knowledgeable about the local ecosystem. We highly recommend this tour.

Best charter company in the Keys - By far the best boating experience we have done in the Keys! Our captain, Henry, was not only professional but extremely knowledgeable about the Florida Keys, their history, and the ecosystems surrounding them. My partner and I brought our dog (we saw on BringFido that Keyz Charters was Dog friendly) he had a BLAST!!!! Our only regret is that we didn't book a longer tour! Thanks so much to Henry, and Keyz charters, we can't wait to come back!

A sunshine memory for a lifetime - Our Ecotour occurred several weeks ago. This review is a bit delayed due our heavy travel schedule. It speaks volumes, however, that we are as thrilled today with the memory of our experience as we were on the day of our tour (mid February). Our tour guide was very knowledgable and demonstrated great patience and commitment to provide us with delightful and memorable sites to remember. Great trip. Great people. We recommend this experience to all who love nature and the peace/quiet of the Keys. Thanks for a great memory. Jim and Susan MacLean
