A great trip (2 hours) off the coast of Key West to see not only the wonderful coast line but many dolphins. A really nice boat and Captain Karen was a wonderful Captain and host. Highly recommended.

Captain Karen provided a wonderful 2-hour boating tour of the Key West coastline. She was flexible and accommodating. We had only 4 people, and she made sure that we saw all that we wanted to see. She even tried to find some dolphins for us...More
