Fantastic day on the water! Chartering a private boat is truly the best way to experience all of the beauty that Key West has to offer and I highly recommend Soul Shine Adventures and Captain Ange! We were a group of friends who charged the boat for a private full day on the water. Captain Ange helped us create a customized itinerary which met and exceeded our expectations. Our priorities were dolphin watching, sandbar hopping and just a general relaxed day on the water. Captain Ange is a true expert and was able to guide us to areas where local dolphins are know to swim. She is knowledgeable but also respectful of the wildlife and nature around the area. We were fortunate to spot dolphins during our trip and Ange took us to a beautiful sand bar where were swam, walked on a white sand beach (which is a luxury only accessed via boat in the Keys), relaxed on an inflatable pad and then boated off to a local restaurant for lunch. We could not have asked for a better day. Ange is professional, friendly, and hospitable. Her boat is in impeccable condition and she went the extra mile for us, even mixing and putting her own Key West twist on the cocktails we brought on board, providing a Bluetooth speaker to pair our music with and was happy to answer any questions we had. Soul Shine Adventures is perfect for a group of friends, families and anything in between. We are looking forward to our next trip with Captain Ange!

I have been to KW several times and I’ve been on a few charters. Captain Ange owner of Soul Shine Charters is the best I’ve encountered. Ange is knowledgeable, skilled and personable, a combo you don’t always find! It was less than ideal conditions for our outing today since a cold front had blown in. Ange was flexible with our itinerary. We canceled the sand bar hopping and stuck with fishing and dolphin watching. I love that Angie isn’t stuck on any one thing but will work to create the experience you want. Add in charming personality and you have a perfect outing.
If you are vacationing in Key West and want to charter a boat, I highly recommend Soul Shine Charters.

Thanks Captain Ange for the most amazing experience out on the waters of Key West.
Just a gorgeous boat that collected us from the main harbour in Key West as we arrived by cruise ship.

4 of us headed out to a remote beach area on the most beautiful sandbar giving us views of beaches and blue seas for as far as we could see.

Shortly after a stroll along the beach we got back on the boat and started heading towards an area known for dolphins and not even minutes into this next part of the tour and the dolphins just appeared. They were all around the boat and then had the opportunity to come alongside a loggerhead turtle!! After about 45 mins with the dolphins we headed back towards Key West where Capt Ange gave us some local tour guide information before returning back to the port area.

Finally she gave us the best recommendation of a restaurant location for lunch at the “Half Shell Raw Bar”

Thanks again Insta @soul_shine_charters_kw for a great day that is a “must do” for anyone travelling to Key West.

Amazing trip. Captain Ange makes you feel
immediately at ease. We appreciated the fact that she is also very respectful of dolphins. Her boat is beautiful, just the right size (we were the 4 of us). My daughter is normally sea sick but didn’t happen here. Water on board is not served in plastic bottles but water cans. It was the best trip we have had on our holiday, we enjoyed every minute of it and would highly recommend it!

Loved having the boat to ourselves. Ange was a great captain, got us straight to the "dolphin playground" - were we say a group of 10 or more dolphins. Then, she took us to some mangrove "islands" and to a tiny little beach only reachable by boat. She customized the tour to what we wanted to do. It was a very comfortable boat, and though I'm prone to sea sickness, I had no issues at all on this trip.
Highly recommended.

Captain Ange picked us right at the Sunset Key dock, got us to a great fishing spot where we were the only boat in the area and had each of the three teenage girls that were with us hooked into a fish within 20 minutes. Ange is extremely knowledgeable about the waters surrounding Key West, super friendly and highly accommodating. In fact, she was so good with the girls that we had them go back out with her the next day just to cruise and check out the area from the water. She just the type of fun, but no non-sense, person that you would entrust your daughter with for a day on the water! Those two hours may have been the girls’ favorite part of the trip.

Additionally, the boat itself is spacious and extremely clean. Perhaps we just came at the right time, but the ride was also very smooth.

All in all, we had two great days with Ange will definitely book with her again on our next trip south. I would highly recommend.

friend who went out with her last year. Without a question our charter and time with Captain Ang was the highlight of our vacation. Her professionalism and knowledge of the Keys are equally matched to her fun loving personality and care she showed for our family.

Captain Ang knew the best spots for us to get close to dolphins, see some awesome snorkeling, and experience a “private” beach. All finished by a priceless sunset.

If you are considering a private charter, look no further and book Soul Shine Adventures.

Four of us spent the morning with Captain Angela and what a great experience it was. Her boat is spotless and as a local, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and what there was to see. We visited one of the many desert islands with incredible surrounding waters, saw lots of dolphins swimming and fishing peacefully around the boat and we were even fortunate enough to see a large turtle bobbing along. I can highly recommend Ange, her boat and her pleasant company if you are looking for an excursion of this type whilst visiting Key West. There are many to choose but would pick Soul Shine Charters every time. Thanks for a great morning.

What a great captain and what a great day! Captain Ange is very knowledgeable of the local waters and customized the trip to just what we wanted to do. The boat was beautiful and very comfortable. She picked us up at the Sunset Key dock and we spent a lovely day on the water exploring the area. We ended the day watching the sunset from the best seats in the house. It was a perfect trip. Did I mention Ange is just a lovely person too and we really enjoyed chatting with her the entire day? I would highly recommend Soul Shine looking for a perfect day on the waters around Key West.

What a wonderful 1/2 day speed boat trip!

We were literally picked up, by boat directly in front of our cruise ship by Captain Ange, it was amazing!
We headed out to beautiful Key West...
Captain Ange took us to the best spots, we had time to swim, snorkel and visit a small island, taking a stroll along the secluded beach....
The highlight of the day was seeing whales and turtles, I loved it! Captain Ange makes the trip, her knowledge and love for the ocean is clear, we’ll be back, thank you for a wonderful time!

Captain Ange also recommended the best place to eat in Key West, which was Half Shell Raw Bar!
