“One of the Best Things You'll Do In Key West”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2008

I've been on both the snorkel trip and sunset sail, and had a fantastic time on both. The crew of this fine vessel will really look after you. Worth every penny, and an absolute can't-miss when you are in Key West!

“Highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2008

We had a blast on the Island Time trip on October 12. Your expertise on picking an areas, and knowing the weather patterns made the trip spectacular. Mo’s knowledge of the local terrain and wildlife added a great touch to the dive, and kayaking.

We loved the time on the boat, and meeting all the other passengers. Our trip on the Blu Q was the highlight of our time in Key West. The only disappointment was not having enough time to book a second trip with you.

We will definitely see you again next time we are in Key West.

“It can't get any better than this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2008

We've visited Key West three times and on every trip we've gone out on the Blue Q. The day trip for snorkeling is incredible. The captain and first mate go out of their way to make every minute fun and take great care of their guests. You never feel like your on a standard guided tour, but more like you're on a close friends private boat. The sunset sail is beautiful as well. We'll go out again and again.

“A Great Day On The Water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2008

Although my friends and I have been going to Key West for many years, we have never done any activity in or on the ocean. This year we decided to try something different. We selected a half-day cruise with snorkeling aboard the Blu Q. What a fantastic choice! None of us had ever snorkeled before, and with a quick tutorial from First Mate Moe, we were prepared for our first venture into the ocean. We visited two reefs, and despite some inclimate weather during our first stop, we still had a terrific time!
Captain Steve was knowledgeable and extremely passionate about sailing. He made it his personal goal to make sure each of his passengers had the best day possible. My friends and I agree that we should never had waited so long to try this activity. The mere $85.00 cost included a delicious lunch, assorted beverages, all the equipment and 5 hours on the ocean! My friend said he would have paid $200.00! All you need to bring is sunscreen and a towel. It was a great time and we will definitely sail with Captain Steve on the Blu Q again!

“Fantastic trip and a great value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2008

Our experience with Captain Steve and Mo started days before when we met them at the Island House bar. My partner and I had already booked the trip as a birthday present for friends and Captain Steve and Mo sought us out to be sure we were still interested in going...you see, Tropical Storm Gustav was in the area. Captain suggested delaying the trip a day after and he didn't disapoint. Although the water was too churned up to snorkel, which Captain told us about the day before, the trip was the best afternoon of the weekend. There was plenty of sunshine, a sea kyack trip around a mangrove island and a great cookout right on the boat. Mo tended to our every need and has extensive knowledge in Key West's flora and fauna. Mo creates a great vibe on the boat.

These are great local guys that seek to provide a great afternoon on the water. Guys, keep up the great work!
