About Keys Boat Tours
Recreational boating in the FL Keys. Private charter eco & snorkel tours for up to 6 passengers). Motor to the backcountry, paddleboard, snorkel, fish and eco. It is an option for the whole family–everyone can equally enjoy. We keep it comfortable and avoid choppy waters. On calm days, we go out to the only living reef in the US, Looe Key, for a lifetime experience. Captain Brian is very knowledgeable about marine life, local waters and navigation. We offer Hands-on Boating & Fishing Lessons too. And we rent kayaks and stand-up paddleboards from shore at our MM39 / Sunshine Key RV Resort & Marina location (4hrs, 8hrs, 24hrs and weekly options).

Amazing trip with Brian and Allison. Looe Reef was amazing! Brian and Allison are both so friendly and knowledgeable. Went with a group of girlfriends and day was incredible. It is worth a trip with Keys Boat Tours!!
