the 4 of us [2 adults and 2 kids aged 11 and 9] decided we wanted to take a trip to Egmont Key and based on the other reviews we saw of Charlie's Charters, decided to give them a try. I rang first thing to find they had space for us on that day's cruise and 20 minutes later they... More

The captian and mate were very knowledgable about the area.( as i am not from here) The boat was clean and roomy plenty of places to sit to get great view of pretty much everything. The ride out is fun. As we got to the island we were informed of the do's and dont's. we... More

The water was very salty and the visibility was very poor underwater which made snorkeling no fun at all. Not for beginning swimmers (they drop you into 9 feet of water and don't supply a life vest). This experience doesn't compare to snorkeling in the Caribbean.

Our family of seven had a marvelous time on Charile's Charters to Egmont Key. We collected shells, explored Fort Dade ruins, snorkeled, and even found Sand Dollars! The crew was fabulous, helpful, and informative. They provided bottled water for the trip and snorkel gear. Laurel picked us up directly from our condo and returned us there afterward. She, too, was... More

If I were to go back to Treasure Island I would definitely go to Charlie's Charters. They were great and knowledgeable about just about any question we asked. This is a part of my trip to Treasure Island that I will always remember. They made it fun and made easy to open up and have a great time, it felt... More

This was a no brainer for us. We wanted our 10 yr old son to try snorkeling and we all love to explore ruins and islands so for $35 per adult and $15 per child we booked this little excursion. We chose the Egmont Key trip which is a 1 hr boat ride to the key island, 45 minutes to... More

We decided to go on the snorkling/shell/ dophin trip for 4 hours, BEST $ spent on our entire trip to Florida! Capt. Dennis and First mate Chris were very knowledgeable about the area and very entertaining. Saw a bunch of dolphins and snorkled for the first time. Will definately do this again! Best value attraction in all of Florida!

The captain and the tour guide were very helpful. The location where we met the boat was easy to find. Egmont Key is fascinating and the boat ride is a lot of fun. I recommend that you visit Egmont Key and that when you do you travel with Charlie's Charters!

We took the "all day tour", which was actually 2 separate trips. The first day we went to Shell Island, during the ride to the island we were able to get very close to SEVERAL dolphins. Many had their calves with them and they came very close to the boat! Shell Island is just what they say it is. We... More
