“Eco tour”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were wanting to get out on the water but very windy while we were staying in Islamorada. Did not want to rent our own boat as we have no experience on the ocean. Captain Samantha was recommended and glad that she was. Very friendly and knowledgable. She is located out of Robbie's Marina on the gulf side. It is great to learn about the area from someone who knows and lives and respects the environment. She found dolphins, a couple of crocodiles, birds, explained the different mangroves. Lots of history on Indian Key, was willing to answer all of our questions. Glad we took the opportunity.

“Memories to last a lifetime”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We went on two afternoon trips each lasting two hours with Captain Samantha. At $100 an hour it's not cheap, but you get a totally personal tour with a guide who really knows her stuff (she is a marine biology graduate). For me the highlights were cruising through the mangrove canals which can only be seen by boat. One afternoon we watched spellbound from about ten feet away as an American saltwater crocodile climbed a flight of steps on to a dock and flopped down to sunbathe. I will never forget it. You have to accept that wildlife does not appear to order, and we saw less on our second trip, but it was still fascinating and an invaluable perspective on this unique terrain. Last but not least Samantha is delightful company who made us feel most welcome.

“Sunset cruise with Captain Sam.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Wonderful cruise on six-passenger boat piloted and narrated by Captain Sam. She is an excellent skipper and extremely knowledgeable guide. Our two-hour voyage culminated with our viewing of a spectacular sunset while idling in the Gulf of Mexico. She even took some spectacular photos which she emailed us the following day. It was our first full day in the Keys for our family Christmas getaway, and this experience turned out to be one of the highlights of our stay. Highly recommended.

“Sunset Tour!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

My family was down in Islamorada for Christmas and got a Charter with Captain Sam for a sunset tour. She was so easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about everything! We saw lots of birds and a crocodile. We brought wine and cheese on the boat and had a great time watching the sunset. I would highly recommend booking with KeyZ Charters!

“Mangroves and More”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

We had a very fun and relaxing boat ride with a great tour guide Capt Sam. We learned a lot about local wildlife, plants, and history. The boat was clean and comfortable and Capt Sam was a great driver. Conversation was easy and relaxed while also filled with the scoop on life as a local. We really enjoyed being out on the water in Islamorada and we recommend this boat trip to other tourists visiting this area.
