Sailing Charter in Marathon for a family?

We are now booked at White Sands and we are wondering if there is a sailing charter in the middle keys that would combine sailing and snorkeling for a family of 4.

Also...it seems like Marathon Lady would be the choice for a family fishing trip?

And....A Deep Blue Dive for a family snorkel trip?

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

A Deep Blue for snorkeling. Not a lot of sailing in the middle keys - most of that is in KW. But there is some.... one is a sunset cruise www.oceansailinginc.com

You can find a private snorkel trip with Capt Nick http://www.nickborraccinosportfishing.com

Marathon Lady is a fine choice, but if it was my first fishing trip I would hire a private charter.

Thank you.

I was also looking at Sailing in the Florida Keys establishment and wondered if anyone knew anything about them?

I'll start calling around for rates.

The other sailing place is Bareboat Charters and seems to be located by Key Fisheries.

Does anyone know anything about them?

The people who do the sunset cruise look like they have a beautiful boat and they get great reviews...but they are pretty expensive for a 1/2 day sail with snorkel.

The sailing operation near Key Fisheries is much less expensive, but I can't find much about them.

Thanks in advance for any help!
