After being stranded in Key West by my buddies for the day (terrible I know!), I bumped into Cpt Williams who set me up for what was an amazing 24hours. With just a few text messages I found myself hitting the water with just myself, him and his dad for a very reasonable price! We spearfished and lobster hunted for the next several hours. During this both Cpt Williams and his dad instructed me, fished alongside of me, shared meals and few good stories with me. Professional and friendly doesn't accurately describe these two - made you feel like family or at least really good friends. We caught lots of hogs, lobster and grouper- I celebrated with a few drinks. This was only the beginning....

Knowing that I was down here by myself, they offered to take me to a friends party...which we went to on the boat! Had a blast and was very accommodated. After all that, we packed up had went back to the harbor. It had gotten pretty late so they so rather than cleaning the boat and all that not so fun maintenance stuff they just drove me back to my hotel and said they'd get me the fish and lobster in the morning. Which was good, cause in all my excitement I forgot to pay them. The next morning Cpt Williams again picked me up at the hotel and drove me to the airport so I could make my flight!! You can't buy service like that! Ohhh, and I finally paid him haha.

All said, the lengths that they go through for their customers was astounding. I can't say they'd be a taxi service, party chauffeur like they were with me but they will take care of you :) I would come back to Key West just because of them.

Captain Shon was the best guide we have ever had. He made sure our children were able to do exactly what we wanted on our two day trip. He took us snorkeling to the reef and taught the boys to spear fish. He prepared the fish for us on the boat while we swam on the sand bar. The next day he took us lobster diving. We all caught our limits and he prepared fresh lobster on the boat while we played on the sand bar.

My girlfriend and I chartered the boat for a day of fun! It was clean, spacious and had a great sound system. We went to a sandbar where we were able to lounge around on our own "private island". Captain Shon was very knowledgeable about the backcountry and the mangrove eco system, we are learned a lot! He knew exactly when to leave us to ourselves so we could enjoy each others company. After our time on the sandbar we caught a beautiful Key West sunset on the ride back in. We would recommend this trip to anyone seeking the true "locals only" experience in the backcountry.
