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

Overall it was a fun trip. The boat handler did a good job of driving the boat. There is not much instructions if you are new to snorkeling. This is pretty much a bus ride to the spot so you can snorkel. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about what they did.

Have been out to Looe Key snorkeling with Strike Zone 3 times and each time has been great! The crew is entertaining and takes the boat, a wide and stable catamaran, to two spots on the reef. Looe Key is easily the best place to snorkel in the Keys. The coral formations and structure of the reef are amazing and... More

Our visiting family of four, including two teenage boys, thoroughly enjoyed this experience from start to finish and we typically try to find non-touristy ways to do things in our destination. The captain (Larry??) did a great job and his sense of humor was a bonus! The boat easily accommodated the 40 people on board. Two different hour-long (really, a... More

The reef trip was great. The fish were beautiful. Everything was crowded, but it was a holiday weekend, so that was expected. Jeff, the captain, Jeff, was great. The mates, Nikki and Linda were not very nice, however, we didn't let them ruin the trip.

This was a great 1/2 day outing. The captain and mate were friendly. Captain had some good corny jokes. Captain did a good job getting us a prime location. We brought our own gear. We also brought a small cooler with water and snacks. There is a nice store if you forgot something. My husband needed a hat. Clean bathrooms... More

Awesome trip to the reef. As an experienced snorkeler this was still an excellent trip with new and exciting things to see. Looe key is an excellent destination. Goliath grouper, barracuda, Sharks, parrotfish, angelfish, mackerel, SO MUCH LIFE! Come here before going to key west!!! Cheaper too!

I took 15 sixth grade students and four chaperones on the sunset cruise with Hazel and Captain Lenny. They were quite the pair! They infused humor into the trip while educating us on the history of the Florida Keys, fishing, snorkeling, and even preparing a DELICIOUS dinner of Mahi Mahi! We will definitely use Strike Zone again!

This is no doubt the BEST reef in US I have seen. That said, this company is *not* the best. Good aspects: Excellent reef spots, good for solos, Respectful and friendly. Nice stable boat. Fast to reef. Two great sites. The only reason I'm giving them an average rating is the quality of the sites. Not sure how much credit... More
