Owner description: When you sail with Danger Charters, you sail to another world and time; to a place where the wildlife is still "wild" and your interaction with nature is intimate and authentic. You feel as if you've stepped back in time, back to the days when the Florida Keys backcountry was home to traditional, shallow-draft sailing craft, captained by local water men who had grown up sailing and navigating the notorious shallows and challenging narrow channels of the Florida Keys.

“Great fun, excellent staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2008

Recently took Danger charters on two different tours: a half day snorkeling and kayaking tour (that to our surprise included a sunset cruise) and a sunset "Wind & Wine" tour that also was a sunset cruise. The boats are in excellent condition, as is the equipment used for snorkeling and kayaking, and the staff is friendly, fun, and hilarious. I highly recommend using Danger for your tours.

“Watch the Boom!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2008

Last week we took the full day snorkeling trip with Danger Charters. The trip was a ton of fun! The sailboat was beautiful and a great way to spend the day on the water. The water was clear for snorkeling and we saw lobster, sting rays, and plenty of fish. We went to Man Key for kayaking in the afternoon. Kayaking was definitely the highlight of the day. We saw a horshoe crab, two turtles, and three sharks in addition to numerous birds.

Our Captain, Haig, and his crewmember, Kristi were very knowledgeable about the the local birds and marine life. They were also eager to offer suggestions about local restaurants. They made a point of learning everybody's name and took the time to get to know everyone on the boat. The two of them were hysterical and a lot of fun to hang out with.

We had so much fun we went on the Wind and Wine Sail the following evening. Watching the sunset from the sailboat was a great way to spend our last night in Key West. We were also lucky enough to have Haig as our Captain once again.

Sailing with everyone at Danger Charters is definitely a must do when you're in Key West! And Haig-watch the boom!

“Not as great as everyone says, but had an okay time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2008

With Danger Charters rated #1, we were definitely excited about this trip. We booked a full day trip, so it included snorkeling and kayaking. The kayaking we considered an extra - our main focus was snorkeling. Let me just say that this was very disappointing. They took us to a non-reef location, which was very dull. No colorful fish at all, though the water was calm. We saw a few lobsters, crabs and some dull colored fish. They warned us of this prior to getting in the water - so I don't know what their reasoning was for taking us here. I think the place was called Chicken heads? Out of all the snorkeling trips we've been on, this was definitely the worst. If you want colorful fish, make them take you to a reef! Next we went to Man Key for kayaking. Now this was amazing. We kayaked through mangroves, saw some barracuda, sharks and turtles. Food was yummy, especially the curry chicken. Staff was AMAZING! If it weren't for the bad snorkeling location, the trip would have been above average. Also, just another note, we went on Sebago Charters the day before. The biggest difference we saw b/w the charters (besides the snorkeling) was that Danger Charters had an older population. We're in our late 20's, so Sebago had more people we could relate to. If we had to do it again, we probably wouldn't choose Danger.

“Romantic Sailing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2008

My husband and I had a great time on the Wind and Wine Sunset Sail with Danger Charters on the last night of our trip. They had quality assortments of wines and beers and multiple trays of fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses, etc. My husband and I now want to move to the sea and buy a sailboat. I only wish we would have gone sooner so we could take a snorkel tour too.

“Great Key West Activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2008

We went on a sailing, snorkling, & kayaking tour by Danger Charter. It was $75 per person & well worth it. The guides were great & the group was small (~17 people). The snorkling was actually pretty bad. It wasn't at the reef so there wasn't much to see but it was still fun. The boat was really cool & it was a great way to spend a day.
