“Great Gay Cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Awesome cruise with Steve and Ryan. Not an overpacked catamaran. Lots of drinks and munchies. Did some ok snorkeling and kayaking. The sunset cruise was nice. Ryan worked his butt off.

“Captain Steve is getting cranky”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Twice before, we have taken the Blue Q evening cruise and had a great time. This time, our attempt to book passage on the evening cruise was frought with problems. For two days prior to the cruise, we were unable to book with the website. When I finally called captain Steve he insisted that the site was working, and refused to accept accommodations over the telephone. We tried again, and again with several different computers and portable devices. When I finally called him back again, he told me that the Internet was down, and to try the next day. His cell phone kept dropping the call, and we never could get him to accommodate us by allowing us to book for 5 of us. The website never did work, so I called him again the day before the cruise, and he agreed to book for five people. When we showed up however, he insisted that we only booked for two people, although I had told him at least three times that it was a total of five. He was so rude to us, that we finally just walked off the boat.
This tour has a great reputation. I hate him to see him mar the success by becoming so arrogant and cranky.

“Captain Steve is the man!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

We decided to book a day out on the Blu Q during our recent trip to Key West and hit the only bad weather day of our trip. Captain Steve asked us if we would be willing to change our scheduled itinerary for the day and he would do his best to get around the weather. He managed to find a hole in the storm and we spent the afternoon swimming and snorkeling with an amazing array of tropical fish and were thrilled to see a sizable nurse shark. Where many would have given up or simply kept us in the rain, Captain Steve made sure we had a great day. Highly recommended.

“Gay boat ride!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

We left 10:30 am and returned at 4:00 pm and it just went by too fast,it was a great time. You get lunch, drinks beer and wine. Very relaxing and yet not too relaxing. Met lots of great people, some couples and some not. Steve was the captain and Ryan was first mate keep it very entertaining. Well planned, a must do while in KW

“Always a Nice Trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Since snorkeling depends a lot on weather conditions, the captain (Steve) cannot always guarantee what each voyage will bring. But his years of experience in the waters of the Keys always pays off with an enjoyable trip. Whether snorkeling on a reef or in a sponge garden or hanging out at a sandbar, an enjoyable and interesting time is bound to be had! Have been going out on the Blu Q for years and highly recommend this all-gay cruise experience!
