We wanted to do a sunset cruise and opted for a chartered one with Blue Chi Charters to avoid a large crowd. $300 for 4 people was not much more than we would have paid going with one of the larger cruises and it was so worth it! Donnie was an excellent captain and shared a lot of information as he took us all around Key West! They provide a cooler and you can bring your own drinks and snacks. Highly recommended!!

We were in Key West for a cruise port day. What better way to spend the last day of 2019, then getting away from the crowds, and out on the water! Blu Chi Charters was perfect. I contacted Captain Tim, and he was easy to communicate with setting up our trip. We only had about 2 hrs, so Capt. Tim and his daughter, First Mate Marlee, took us around the mangroves (sharing lots of great info with us), and made time for the guys to do a little fishing. Marlee always kept the hooks baited, and quick to get the fish off the hooks. Caught lots of fish, but no big keepers, but was a blast. We look forward to going back on a longer charter to the reef to snorkel with Capt Tim. Perfect cruise ship day, so much better to be on a private boat. Just remember to tell your driver to drop you off at the Yellow Fin Restaurant at Oceans Edge.

This was our first time snorkeling and kayaking! Hiring a personal charter allowed us to take things nice and easy. The charter was comparable in price to taking a family of five on a group charter. My children are 10, 13 and 14. They had GREAT time and were asking when we could do it again.

Great half day on the water with Captain Tim! The man has 20 plus years of experience on the waters of Key West, and it shows. Tim is friendly and easy going, the conversation was never forced. We got a bit of a history lesson as we putted out of the marina past the shrimp boats, and he took us to his favorite snorkel spots, away from the crowds. The boat is clean, well equipped, and a smooth ride. Captain Tim provides the coolers, you just fill them with your favorite snacks and beverages. Summertime is the best time to get out on the water in Key West! Highly recommend!

Reserved a full day 6 hour private tour with Captain Tim and was very impressed. Our family of 4 spent the whole day kayaking through the mangroves, snorkeling, relaxing on the sand bars and fishing. Not bad for doing all these activities in one day.

We liked this company so much that we booked a sunset cruise with Captain Donnie, and also was impressed. Got some fishing before the sunset, which my family also enjoyed. Water was choppy at the end of the tour, but can't control Mother Nature.

Great experiences overall!

We went out on a 24 ft hurricane with Captain Donnie Sunday morning. Perfect weather , almost no chop on the water. He took us out to Snipe Key to the most amazing sand bar! You could walk from the boat to the beach (deserted)maybe a half mile ? Truly an incredible location and experience- if you haven’t been - you must go! Captain Donnie took great care of us we will be back and when we return to Key West he’s the first booking we will make. We all had an absolutely amazing time ! Cheers Captain 👨🏼‍✈️ Donnie

I went on a sunset sail with friends and it was the most memorable experience I’ve ever had. All of us enjoyed the trip, also because of our captain Tim. He’s so knowledgeable and he was able to share us some trivias. We also tried fishing, but unfortunately we weren’t able to catch a big fish but it didn’t ruin our trip at all. I highly recommend Bluchi charters!!!!

Our sandbar and snorkeling charter was the highlight of our trip! Spending the morning out on the water for our own personal excursion was the best way we could have imagined kicking off our vacation. From booking to docking this was a fantastic experience. The boat ride out to our piece of paradise was wonderful -- Capt. Donnie is very knowledgeable of the island and its history. If you are looking to experience KW, look no further. Blu Chi is it and we cannot wait to come back and book another trip!
