Our family of seven had the most amazing time out on the CraigCats with Eric and Captain Tom! Alana booked us over the phone and the whole team met us right on the docks on time and with everything we needed for a comfortable trip, including a locked bin where we could leave our purses etc. The boats had a small area for dry storage for our phones and sunscreen, the coolers were stocked with ice and bottled water, and bimini tops were available for shade on each if needed. Everyone from our advanced boaters to newbies and even grandma had fun zipping around the cays and learning about the area and animals. Eric made sure we all felt comfortable driving and safe while also having a great time. Capt Tom captured great photos for us and Alana sent them over via text directly following the excursion. A few specific areas we loved seeing included a stop at the sandbar for a quick swim, winding through the mangroves, and some bird sighting through one of the wild sanctuaries. 10/10 for sure! We would highly recommend!

This is the absolute best way to see and cruise the waters around Islamorada. Eric and Alana are great hosts. The catamarans are a blast to operate and Eric makes sure you're comfortable before heading out. My wife and I did the jet ski tour a few years ago and we thought the catamarans are definitely more comfortable than the Sea Doos or Wave Runners. We were as far north as Snake Creek where we saw the houses at Venetian Shores to south of Robbie's. We cruised the ocean and bay side along with going out to Bird Island, the sandbars on the ocean side and a bunch of other places. Eric stops several times along the way to give you some info on what you're looking at. Whether you're cruising through a mangrove at idle or full throttle on the open waters, you will not be disappointed.

Tom guided us on a wonderful 2 hour trip. He was very knowledgeable about the area and had a lot to offer about the local waters. He took the time to explain all the different wildlife we saw and made sure we were in a safe environment while underway. We had a very enjoyable trip and I recommend this trip when you’re down in the Florida Keys.

Been coming to Islamorada for over a decade with my son. This is a new business so we gave it a try. What a wonderful time we had. My teenage son loved it. He got to drive but I'm not sure what's more fun driving or bouncing around as a passenger. Eric and Alana are so happy to be doing what they do and it shows. They are awesome guides and made us feel like old friends. If you look at entertaining two people for over two hours it's a good deal and much more fun than jet skis. They are perfectly safe, very easy to drive and the guides will not push you further than your abilities. Take the kids, they'll love it.

The 2 1/2 hour boat tour was outstanding. Eric was an awesome guide and exceeded our expectations. Being able to drive your own boat with your partner was a definite plus. Getting to drive the boat around the whole island was great and our guide knew exactly where to take us for scenery as well as safety. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to tour the Keys by water without having to rent a boat or not being familiar with the waterways around the island. A unique experience!

From the moment we met Tom the owner and stepped onto the barge to get briefed for the tour was amazing. The team immediately makes you feel comfortable and at ease and gives a great training session. Once you're out on the water, it's a blast. The team takes the extra time to share all the intricate details of the water, area, and landmarks. In addition, the boats were top notch and were amazing to drive! We would recommend this to everyone. Just a great time!

I had seen an advertisement at our hotel for the tour and couldn’t get it out of my mind. Eventually I pulled the trigger and booked a tour for me and my five year old daughter. It did not disappoint and I am so glad we decided to do it. It was an amazing way to explore the waterways of the Keys while learning some history about the island and getting to check out some scenery and landmarks. The boat was easy to drive and a lot of fun to drive I might add - it reminded me of a go kart on the water. Tom was our tour guide and he was extremely friendly, educational, patient, enthusiastic, fun. He made sure my daughter and I were behind his boat in line so that he could monitor her and how she was doing and feeling, which I really appreciated. I loved the variety of areas we visited including Atlantic Ocean, bayside, mangroves, gulf. Variety of speed and scenery! Highly recommend!

Best boat tour in the keys! The boats were clean and sanitized. Eric and Alana gave us a thorough introduction course on the boats and trip before our adventure. They were super knowledgeable of the waterways, mangroves & history of islamorada! They recommended the Bass Pro Shop which has everything you could need in Islamorada and suggested eating at the Restaurant which was amazing!! We felt very safe with our guides and learned about all the islands and keys that make up the area. My young nephews (5 & 7) loved the tour and Eric & Alana found a cool private sandbar for them to take a swim!! Can’t wait to do this again !! Thank you so much for the experience!

We didn’t want to book the catamarans because of the price but it was 100% worth every penny!! Coolest experience ever, the scenery was amazing, the waters were even better. So much more fun than jet skis. I recommend wearing water shoes or taking off your shoes and securing them AND don’t wear a hat. We lost shoes and hats but who cares, it was fun! Our tour guide even took us out to a sandbar to hang out for a bit. Be ready for lots of laughs and cool pictures

While searching for a Jet Ski tour online, my wife and I stumbled upon this adventure. So much fun to drive and so many sights to see. I learned how to drive in a matter of minutes and had no problem idling through mangroves and shallow spots, or full throttling it through the Atlantic. The entire journey lasted about two hours and flew by. Next time I’m in Islamorada I’ll definitely book another trip (my 6 year old would love it). This is easily one of the most fun things I’ve done on vacation and would recommend to anyone that wants to be on the water. Price point was right between a jet ski tour and a small charter boat trip which I believe is perfect. We did get the perfect water conditions for our trip, which was definitely a bonus.
