We were looking for an excursion booked separately from the cruiseship, in the hopes of a less crowded & touristy experience. Little French Key (LFK) filled that expectation. One of the drivers met us just outside the port, and we rode with some others to Frenchy's 44, which is owned by the same family as LFK. Everyone was friendly & helpful. Probably 40-50 people total from our cruiseship went to LFK, which was great because the key was big enough to spread out and feel like you were doing something a little more special. Lunch was fantastic, we had a bit of everything offered, and it was one of the best meals of our whole vacation. Great drinks, combed sand, small zoo area, and clean changing area/bathrooms all made this an enjoyable & low-key excursion. No problems in getting back to the ship on time. Only "complaint" was the quality of snorkeling; visibility wasn't great which was likely due to weather, but even so, we've seen better.
