“Key West: the funky Florida.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010

We spent Thanksgiving Week 2010 with a friend at her time share in Key West. I have been all over Florida but never managed tom make it to the Keys and it was a wonderful experience. Our accommodations were great, and so was the weather. Key West is home to many restaurants in all price ranges. We took a fantastic day trip by catamaran to Ft. Jefferson, a Civil-War era fort that's now a National Park in the Dry Tortugas Islands. Our boat took back to Key West 19 Cuban refugees who made it to an island near the Park - an interesting turn of events! We took another side trip to Bahia Honda State Park at mile marker 37 on US 1 (about 40 minutes north of Key West). Beaches there are unspoiled and the park boasts a remnant of the trestles that once carried Henry Flagler's railroad through the Keys. The one downside to Key West was the daily influx of cruise ship passengers who congested the small dockside area. Other than that, we had a fine time.

“Key West Anniversary Celebrations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2010

My husband and I traveled to Key West on September 2009 for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had such a great time we returned in September 2010 to celebrate #26 with friends, who were celebrating their anniversary, too. We had an incredible vacation! So many fun things to do and the weather was very warm, but a little muggy. The brief afternoon showers were welcomed.

“Great fishing charter in key west! Dream Catcher Charters.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2010

A four hour fishing trip that was most enjoyable. Highly recommend Dream Catcher Charters. The equipment and guide were first rate.

The fish cooperated, and when they didn't at a particular spot the guide knew where and how to mix it up to find the best spot for time of day, weather, and season.

You can bring your bring your own equipment, but that isn't necessary. If you like fishing, of just being on the water, you'll enjoy this experience.

Would definitely hire them again.

“Dream Catcher Charters, Inc”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2010

My father-in-law caught a 4 foot baracuda, his biggest fish yet. We had a great time. Our guide, Kyle, was knowledgeable and fun. We saw tarpon, but were unsuccessful. I'd fish again with Dream Catcher Charter.

“KEY WEST FANTASY FEST? YES! GARDEN OF EDEN? NO!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

KEY WEST during FANTASY FEST IS DELIGHTFUL!! Wow!! Loved it! EXCEPT for THE GARDEN OF EDEN! It's the rooftop of THE BULL AND THE WHISTLE on Duval Street.

Forget about seeing the parade from THE GARDEN OF EDEN. And forget about THE GARDEN OF EDEN entirely. Lousy service, dirty conditions, overreacting security guards, nowhere to sit and awful DJ music!

Go somewhere else and ENJOY KEY WEST. This place is TERRIBLE!!
