My husband & I heard of Captain Alex through Marrero's Guest Mansion about 3 years ago, booked it, & had one of the best experiences we've ever had. Unfortunately, I didn't write a review. Well, I'm fixing that now. Once our travel dates were set with our friends for a return trip to Key West, we booked our hotel &... More

Wow! This was a phenomenal experience at a very reasonable price. It's an intimate boat with only room for 3 couples which makes it a romantic date or the perfect place to go with close friends. We had an amazing meal cooked by Captain Al and both him and Carrie were attentive, friendly, fun but also not invasive. This was... More

With only 3 couples aboard, the attention and service you get is amazing. Captain Alex and his first mate Carrie fix a fabulous 5 course meal. We had a wonderful time!

Captain Alex's dinner cruise was a highlight of our trip to Key West! Everything from the intimate atmosphere of the boat (only three couples at a time) to the gorgeous sunset was amazing! This dinner cruise was our favorite thing we did in Key West. The food was out of this world amazing, everything from the shrimp appetizer to the... More

We talked to the concierge at our hotel about booking a sunset dinner cruise on a large ship. He recommended the much smaller sunset cruise with Captain Alex and Islescapes. Captain Alex made the entire evening memorable. He cooked and served an absolutely delicious 5 course gourmet dinner, the small size made it an intimate experience, and he was knowlegable... More

This was one of the best parts of our trip to Key West. The setting is so romantic and the food was great! Captain Alex and his first mate really took care of us! The other sunset dinner cruises and buffet style and full of people. Our dinner was very private and beautiful. This is a must do while you... More

Can't say enough good about Captain Alex. The view was perfect and the food was outstanding. If I have one complaint about Key West is for some reason fish seems to be always overcooked. This is our second trip with Alex and both time the fish was perfect. With a very short time frame to get the right picture at... More

We didn't know what to expect, but even if we had the highest expectations, we'd be blown away! This is the most unique dining experience in the Florida Keys - you dine on Captain Alex's personal boat and you certainly feel like you're a guest in the most well-mannered, polite host's home. He's a fun-loving, but warm guy and will... More
