Went on the Paddle Wheel Boat last week and had one of the best times I have had in Key Largo. Great music with cash bar and snacks with a conch blowing and limbo contest. Every one on board was dancing up storm. Can not find one thing wrong. Do your self a favor and get on board.

“Had a Wonderful Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Great fun, lovey boat, drinks are very reasonably priced! The DJ played some excellent music. He takes requests too! The bar staff is polite, friendly and accomodating for individual needs! I thought that being out on the water, after dark, would require a warm jacket. Not so at all. The seating area is so designed that one does not get a cross wind. The cruise additionally has a conch blowing and limbo dancing competition. Awesome, healthy fun!!!! Thank you Island Time!

“Island Rob Rocks - but not as much as the Rum Runners ! (sorry Rob)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

We've been on the Island Time Sunset cruise twice during our stay. Its a great night out with no driving required !

'Island Rob' and the rest of the crew are very friendly and funny, but still professional, a hard balance to keep. Drinks are reasonably priced, the bartenders are fun, and there is a great atmosphere.

So many businesses in the Keys are just plain badly run, or are unfriendly to tourists (even though they are supposedly there for the tourists) but Island Time were friendly and professional from the first time my wife spoke to them on the phone. Nothing is a problem for Island Rob or the crew.

We are back in Key Largo in a couple of months an we'll definitely be going put with Island Time again.

By the way, does Island Rob have a secret twin brother ??? He seems to pop up everywhere and do literally everything ?

“beautiful sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We took the paddleboat sunset cruise on a Friday night. It was a very nice time. We were worried that the sunset would not happen because of cloud cover but it semi cleared up leaving us with the most incredible shades of pink and orange. We saw dolphins twice but if your not on the front of the boat I dont know if you'll catch a glimpse. It was not a very lively group. I dont know if it was the music, which was more easy listening or the diverse age range, from 10 to about 60. But there was no dancing, that being said everyone had a nice time anyway. The little girls on the trip got to sing a song, which was actually the most upbeat moment of the night. But like I said, beautiful sunset, incredible boat, friendly staff I would recommend this to anyone of any age and would go again if I was in Key Largo.

“What a fun night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

The great two piece band started right away and had music the whole night except when there were contests. They came around with different samples of food throughout the 2 1/2 hour cruise that was catered from Steamers, a local restaurant. In the literature from our hotel, it sounded like there was rum punch all night too, but only had a shot glass twice through the night so had to buy drinks.
