What a wonderful evening! We, too, discovered this experience on Trip Advisor and based on previous reviews felt we ought to try it. It was like having our own private gourmet floating restaurant. Captain Alex and Wendy were extremely personable but yet didn't hover around guests. The food was outstanding and served beautifully on china. Alex creates delicious cuisine using... More

Captain Alex was delightful-a superb navigator and tremendous cook. We arranged to do the sunset dinner cruise with him many months ahead of our visit. Excellent directions on how to find him. The short trip to the weather protected cove gave us a full view of the sunset in Key west. We enjoyed the dinner prepared by the captain and... More

My husband and I took the dinner cruise for my birthday and had a wonderful experience. Captain Alex was friendly and informative about the area. I didn't feel restrictive for space and enjoyed the small good that went on the dinner cruise. The food Captain Alex made was amazing. It was nice to have a healthy meal prepared right on... More

We spent several days roaming the streets and seeing the sights of Key West. This was our first trip there and it was non stop trying to see all the places we wanted to visit. By the time Friday night came around we were ready for a more quiet evening and another chance to see the great sunsets afforded here.I... More

Let me tell you folks, I had the greatest time on this cruise. Not only was Captain Alex & his crew professional, they were funny as heck. Very relaxing and fun time. The meal was one of the best (if not the best) meals I've had EVER!!! If you get down anywhere near there, it is a MUST TRY experience!!!... More

What a fantastic experience with captain Alex and Nicki. Food was unbelievable especially the yellow tail snapper which was cooked to perfection. The ambience and the caring unobtrusive care of captain Alex and his crew was great, combined that with the sunset an unmissable experience in Key West. I unreservedly recommend this excursion to anyone.

While the food and hospitality were without question an enjoyable experience in its self... It was the Sunset that provided the ultimate highlight to a wonderful, romantic evening. Once you have had the opportunity to see the Key West sunset you understand why Capt. Alex's cruises are so memorable. He and his 1st mate Nikki were outstanding hosts with flavor... More

We were greeted on to the boat and introduced. as the 4 other diners arrived we were all introduced. All seated on the top deck. We sped off out of... More

We were one of three couples on board with Captain Alex and Nicky. Both were personable, informative, efficient and created a wonderful experience. The boat sailed to a quiet spot. Captain Alex did the cooking (food was chosen by us beforehand) and we got to enjoy a peaceful dinner and a beautiful sunset along with each other and our meal.... More
