Crowded boat works because crew/captain makes expectations plain

This is a well run dive service. The trip to/from Looe Key was smooth and safe thanks to the wide boat and great crew/captain. While at the reef, the crew did a fine job of... read more

I'm sorry to write this review as staff was super helpful and nice, but a boat cannot be allowed to leave when the weather is crappy with rain and rough sea, thus turning what should be a fun excursion into a constant attempt not to puke. As for the snorkeling, if you've seen the reef in Australia or the Egyptian... More

This is a well run dive service. The trip to/from Looe Key was smooth and safe thanks to the wide boat and great crew/captain. While at the reef, the crew did a fine job of telling people where the best spots were and helping people move around the boat and get into/out of the water efficiently. Make no mistake: this...

Have used them 3 or 4 times for snorkeling trips and have always been satisfied with the crew, the boat and the service. This trip in August we ran into some rain but the captain took off and brought us to an area where it wasn't raining. They also have a real nice store on Big Pine Key for equipment,... More

The boat was old, very dirty and staffed with an inexperienced crew of only 1 captain and 1 mate for 35 divers and snorkelers. Many other divers were asking me for help. On the way back to boat had mechanical trouble and took 1:45 to return. Sorry guys but it's time to put some effort back into your business.

The good: the crew was very helpful and friendly. The price was very competitive. The diving at Looe Key was excellent relative to the Keys. Very nice dive shop and location. The not-so-good: their main dive charter is a combination snorkel/dive charter, which means that it's not optimized for divers. The divers are all crammed together in the back with... More

We visited Strike Zone Charters today for a morning dive at Looe Key. Gail, Mary, and Larry are always there, friendly, and professional; they have always been our choice. Their shop is clean, homey, and has everything you could need for a day on the water and more! The boat left early and the ride was smooth and lovely. The... More

Weather was questionable in my opinion, so they said visibility was 40-50 feet on the reef and they were going out anyway. I have been out to this reef countless times. We were delayed because divers were added at last minute. Captain had rough water going out and had to slow down many times due to rough seas. Seas were... More

A wonderful snorkeling trip to beautiful Looe Key! I read it was the best place to snorkel in the keys and I couldn't agree more. Strike Zone Charters were friendly and provide a peaceful 30 minute boat ride to Looe Key. Bahia State Park cancelled snorkel trip due to conditions but Strike Zone went out without a hitch. Well worth... More

My twin sister and I booked a snorkeling trip months in advance with this company. The day before we were to go out I called to confirm our reservations and she said we were all set but some other people cancelled and they will need at least 12 people to run the boat. They told me more people will probably... More
