One of the best crews and deals in Key West. Everything they feature on their website is legit - unlimited Chandon sparkling, premium red and white wines, beer and soft drink/water. The fish dip is outstanding, as well as the cheeses. The owner, Captain Tom, greeted us and checked us in, and Captain Dan and First Mate Tiffany took over from there. Both interacted with the passengers the entire time, sharing the history of Key West, insight on restaurants and bars and making sure that everyone was entertained. Glasses were never empty and the sunset was amazing. We had such a good time, we booked ourselves again three days later! That night, Captain Jeff and First Mate Nikki were in charge and we're equally as proficient and entertaining. An important difference with Catamaran Echo is their policy to never book more than half capacity, which is roughly 12-14 people. Makes for a very comfortable trip and the ability to be served quickly vs. the "cattle drive" boats. We will be back!

We chose Echo for two reasons: They limit the number of guests and no children are allowed. We do not like large groups...makes you wonder why we go to Key West...we do too sometimes but the weather is great, there is plenty to do and it is so different than where we live.

The sail left on time...not a given in the land of island time. We were fortunate to get a very coompatible group and we all had a wonderful time. The champagne flowed freely, the cheeses and breads were frresh and well chosen. While no one in our group wanted wine, it was available and they nice choices. There was no pressure of any kind and Captain Jeff and First Mate Nikki were conversational but not intrusive and gave all guests appropriate attention. Sometimes we have signed up for a sail and ended up just motoring because it was too much work to put the sails up. This crew put up the sails and positioned us for a perfect view of the sunset. I highly recommend this group.

Jeff managed to find dolphins and did a great job sailing the ECHO catamaran, which was very stable, despite windy conditions. Snorkeling was also very good although visibility was a bit limited due to windy conditions. Thanks Jeff and Nikki for a wonderful experience!

Great opportunity to relax and enjoy the beauty of Key West waters with the sun sinking into the Gulf. The vibe is so wonderful that everyone relaxes and there is great interaction. Drinks, cheese, fruit all terrific. Nice intimate boat. And the crew was terrific. Highly recommended.
