“So chilll, so fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

If you want to enjoy a relaxing day in nature... this is a great find. It is like hanging with a friend who knows the cool places to go to in Key West. We spent a couple of hours snorkeling in the coral then made our way to the mangroves to connect with nature on a paddle board. We saw tons of tropical fish, turtles and sharks. As I sat miles from shore on my paddle board listening to just the sounds of water and nature..... I thought this is how life is meant to be lived!

“Excellent trip”

Capt. Shane listened to exactly what we wanted and made our trip perfect. We could not have asked for more! He took us to breathtakingly beautiful spots and showed us the best parts of the keys.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

This adventure is what I would define as a hidden gem of Key West. Mellow ventures offers a private excursion for an affordable price. In addition to it being a private excursion, they are extremely flexible and are available at anytime via phone or email ready to answer any questions that may arise. During the booking process they answer any questions and block off dates and times for our trip to ensure we recieved the best experience. During our excursion we explored coral gardens with not another boat or human in sight which competes with the large mass excursions such as Fury. On the trip we snorkeled awesome coral gardens full of tropical fish, lobster, and more! We only explored he coral gardens because our captain explore the reef want accessible without experiencing 6 foot waves. He exhibited the knowledge and care of his customers. This is truly an amazing experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a one on one experience with nature with great customer service!

“An unforgetable adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is a must do adventure! Rob and Shane are awesome and the best guides you could ask for by the time your tour is over you will be family! They know the area like the back of the hand and can put you in some of the most beautiful spots in the keys. If spear fishing, paddleboarding, snorkeling, sunsets, wake surfing are your thing or if you want to see marine life at its best Mellow Ventures can do it all. If you want to be on a big tour boat with the rest of the herd this is not the boat for you, but if you want a relaxed private charter/tour with more freedom and unbelievable service check out Mellow Ventures. We will definitely be back!

“Best Way to Enjoy the Keys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Mellow Ventures is an incredible charter/tour service. They have the knowledge, equipment and personality to to give their clients the time of their life. I was part of a six person group that spent two days in some pretty remote areas of the Keys with Mellow Ventures.

Our trip included paddle boarding, snorkeling, spear fishing and sightseeing. Both Rob and Shane were incredibly knowledgeable of the area and were able to provide us with all the gear we needed to have a great time.

The aspect of Mellow Ventures that sets them apart from other charter services is that they really love what they do. They love the Keys and they enjoy sharing it with visitors. Their fun, easy going attitudes really set a tone that facilitates a perfect vacation experience. If you choose to spend a day with Mellow Ventures, it will be the highlight of your trip to the Keys.
