“Fast talking sales person!”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

I told him what I wanted, something to do that was low cost to spend rest of day (it was around 2:30pm) and maybe see a sunset. He sold us a boat ride that cost us almost $200! The ride/tour was nice, we still ended up watching the sunset at the tiki bar, with a bar tab of over $30!

“definitely worth visiting if in Miami”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Florida keys definitely worth visiting. Consider these tips

1. Leave early. If you are in Miami, start your trip around 5am...... I'm serious. This will be a 3 hour trip one way, and you don't want to hit traffic.
2. Enjoy the scenery. Part of the charm of the keys is the "road trip value", so since you listened to tip one, enjoy your road trip.
3. Use the turnpike (and pay the tolls) vs going the freeway route.......... you pay $6 in tolls roundtrip, but save 1 hour of time (or more).
4. Obey all traffic signs........... this is a traffic cop paradise with majority of speed limits at 45 mph, and some as low as 25 mph......... traffic tickets are a good source of revenue here it seems.
5. If you like to smoke, try the NON Cuban (wink, wink) cigars.
6. Plenty of water recreation activities.
7. Go all the way to key west, it was the best of the keys.
8. Leave around 4pm at latest........ only a one lane road for the first 100 miles back to Miami, and you don't want to get stuck in traffic.

The lady that worked there was very knowledgable about the goings on in the Keys. Lots of information there. There are t shirts, postcards and jewelry you can buy. Nice bathrooms as well.

“Great advice and super friendly”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Larry and Karen provided us with very valuable information about the Keys and Key West specifically; plus a lot of coupons. We booked two trips through them, to Dry Tortugas National Park and a sailboat-kayak-snorkel-sunset trip. Both were outstanding! A MUST STOP if you are new to the keys!
