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.

“The best part of our trip to Key West!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2010

We booked the full day snorkel/kayak trip with Capt. Brian, Chris and Wendy and loved every minute of it. The area we snorkeled was clear, beautiful and we saw a good variety of marine life (including the biggest shark I'd ever seen in person). The kayaking was a blast along with floating on a sand bar "chillaxing" after a great lunch (try the curried chicken). Everyone on the crew was fun and had an obvious passion for what they were doing. They were happy to share their knowledge and kept the beverages flowing all afternoon. It was the highlight of our first trip to Key West and we'll do it again.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

My husband and I loved Danger Charters! Brian, Chris and Wendy were so much fun and so nice! We did the full day snorkeling, kayaking trip and absolutely enjoyed every minute. They served a great lunch and always had drinks on hand. On our snorkeling trip we saw a huge turtle, stingrays and lots of fish. On our kayaking trip we saw some small sharks and learned a lot of history about Key West from Chris. The overall atmosphere was amazing and our guide's personalities were great, so friendly and fun! Highly recommended!

“My favorite thing we did in KW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2010

What a wonderful half day excursion with Danger!!!! Captain Brian and mates Joey and Michelle were awesome - they seriously made the trip so great. They were very welcoming and genuinely cared to show us a good time. They explained everything well, had immense knowledge of sea life and the areas history and handled things professionally. The snorkel spot was good. We didn't see tons of colorful or unique sea life but visibility was good and we did see lots of fish, sea turtles, barracuda and sting rays. The kayak trip was more fun than I thought. I've never been kayaking but got the hang of it quickly and the mangroves were nice to see. Drinks were abundantly offered and we enjoyed the fresh fruit and chips with hummus, dips and salsa. The beer, wine and other drink and food selections were good quality. The boat was very clean and well kept and had a large shaded canopy. I looooooove the small size of folks they take out. There was only 16 of us while a Fury boat leaving the same time as us must have had at least 50 folks crowded on!

“A fantastic experience with Danger Charters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2010

We had a limited time to enjoy what the Key's had to offer and luckily we found Danger Charters! Travelling by sailboat to the outer reefs and islands was a wonderful experience. The crew (Brian, Chris and Wendy) were fun, friendly, informative and energetic. Their enthusiam and respect for wildlife and the environment was very much evident and we always felt safe during our adventure.

While snorkeling we saw many sting ray including two spotted eagle rays. We were lucky enough to see a large loggerhead sea turtle, a baracudda and many fish and a couple of nurse sharks. During the kayak portion of our trip, we spotted another nurse shark and a lemon shark racing through the shallows.

The snacks and lunch were delicious and the crew made sure that everyone was well hydrated, keeping the drinks flowing.

Without a doubt, our Danger adventure was the highlight of our Key's trip and we'll absolutly do it again!

“Number one thing to do in Key West.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2010

My wife and I vacation in Key West a lot and we always book the full day trip with Danger Charters. They are the most professional, friendly , and fun charter that we have found. The snorkeling, and kayaking through the mangroves is fantastic, and the sailing is great. We've seen other charters leaving the harbor and the captain has a megaphone talking to the passengers. Your captain on Danger Carters doesn't have a megaphone, and he and his crew take time to visit with their passengers and get to know them. This is definitely the best value in Key West.
