We were only in the keys for a few days with our children, aged 3 and 4. The winds were high (20-30 kts) the whole time, and we had struck out on a few options in Key West the day before when all cancelled due to winds. On a whim, I contacted Mike's Sailing Charters, and he accommodated our request... More

Mike took the two of us out for a sunset cruise. He's very pleasant and knowledgable. The small catamaran is a no frills experience...but we had a wonderful time. Mike is very accommodating. Bring snacks or drinks. Whatever you like. I would definitely hire him to take us snorkeling or just out for a short cruise again. There are no... More

The ocean was a too choppy for snorkeling but we had a great experience sailing and exploring one of the uninhabited islands buy the 7 mike bridge.

My fiancé and I recently took a few days to go down to the keys to celebrate her completing her doctorate of physical therapy. Unfortunately the rigging on our sailboat broke just before the trip, and we were not able to get it fixed in time. Once we got down to the keys, we were bummed that none of the... More

I had the same experience as JAC_France. Mike was lovely, took us out on a modern and clean boat, but then docked at a reef that was lifeless and colorless. I've been snorkeling many times before, and this was by far the worst spot I've seen. I'm not sure why Mike chose this spot (there were many boats on the... More

We had an awesome time snorkeling with Mike, Jen and Alex. They know the area well, so you snorkel in places that are not full of tourists. They were very supportive of first time "snorkelers". The fish were colorful and diverse, and they sail with only up to 6 people. We had the boat to ourselves. On a side note,... More

And the thing that made it really great was our snorkeling trip! Mike and Jen were pleasant, hospitable, and helpful with all of us novices (we are from Denver), old and young (family with kids in 20's). They told us just what to do and what to look for. The fish were gorgeous and fascinating, and we had the reef... More

This is THE way to enjoy the waters off Key Largo without the crowded snorkeling trips offered by commercial dive boats. Sail to reefs not visited by others. Crew was helpful, knowledgeable and fun to spend the day with. Their canine sailor mate, Joy, was an extra treat for everyone on board. You can snorkel or dive as you wish.... More

We did our open water check out with Jen and Mike years ago. When my fiancee needed some scuba instruction, I naturally thought of Jen. She is a thoughtful, experienced dive instructor who provides highly personalized instruction in a low stess environment. She and Mike select wonderful less-travelled dive locations, and make you at home while on their boat. The... More

Mike and Jen pride themselves in working with small groups, and our case was no exception. They were happy to take just two of us out to sea. Originally, we were thinking of snorkeling, but Jen got us excited about diving. Upon a successful introductory course, we went diving on a reef about 6 nautical miles off shore. Jen is... More
