Our group has been on many Dry Tortugas spearfishing charters over the past ten years. We were tired of the larger cattle boats, rude captains and crew that were less than hospitable. Found this group by chance and thought we would give them a try. We will never go back to the Tortugas without using this team. Kelly, Jack and... More

Adventure Watersport Charters went well beyond chartering their boat to me, they helped me plan my entire Key West vacation and saw to it that I had a wonderful trip!

We were fortunate enough to share our family vacation with Captain Jack and Captain Danny on the Emily Anne. This was our first trip on a live-aboard, so we really didn’t know what to expect and opted for the three-day trip. I hind-site that was a huge mistake, two weeks would have been much better. We had the time of... More

I just recently dove with some friends down in Key West and we dove through these guys. I have to say, I was super impressed before I even left the dock. From the capabilities of the boat to the crew that ran it everything was outstanding. They aren't just a standard charter in the sense that you have a large... More

Originally I booked a charter in March but due to storms rolling in it was not safe to go out onto the water. Naturally I was disappointed but safety is always first! So when friends flew in from Texas I decided we'd book again and much to my delight the weather cooperated. Kelly and Captain Jack were always helpful and... More
