Best Day Ever Pawel was our host for our 4 hour afternoon trip. He is personable and knowledgeable, and planned our trip based on current conditions. The boat was nice and spacious for our party of 5. We followed dolphins, enjoyed the natural beauty of Boca Grande, and viewed a spectacular sunset. I highly recommend this company. It’s worth the extra time and distance to get to the marina and get your own memories started!
Experience nature through your senses! If you want a unique experience where you can take in nature through your senses then this is the trip for you!! We chartered Key West Boat Tours for a 4 hour trip on the water. Our captain, Pawel, was both experienced and knowledgeable and we felt very comfortable with him as our guide. His boat was immaculate and he was very caring in helping us in and out . Our first stop was through some mangroves - like a water trail and he explained how the mangroves filtered the seawater into freshwater. We then enjoyed a ride across the open water and went to Snipes point which is a sandbar where you can walk in knee high water to an island. My husband, sister and I enjoyed the time and the peacefulness of it all. As we were returning to the dock we saw dolphins and Captain Pawel was able to follow the pod for a while as they played and jumped in and out of the water. We could almost touch them they were so close to the boat. It was a lovely experience and one that I would do again with Key West Boat Tours with Captain Pawel and recommend to anyone looking for something more than crawl on Duval.
Aye aye my captain! Captain Mikey is smart, ambitious, and a lot of fun. He took us out for a little sandbar swim and made our sadness over it being the last day into a fantastic, funny, relaxing few hours. The company also cancelled a night kayak tour bc of the weather, which I respected. Thanks, y’all!!

Excellent Pavel was a great host. Very easy to communicate with and we had an excellent Captain for our 4 hour cruise. 1pm - 4pm. A cellphone was left behind and the Host was able to locate it and ship it to the owner. Couldn’t be more satisfied with his service. Would definitely book again.

Great experience! Such a great experience! We had a 3 hour trip planned from 1pm-4 but there was rain coming in at that time. They did a great job communicating with us and luckily our plans were flexible and we left a few hours late and had a perfect trip with great weather. There was Bluetooth and we were able to play music and had the entire sandbar to ourselves. Will definitely use them again!

the Keys the best thanks people like them. Our favorite part of the trip experience was definitely the attention from everyone there since I mentioned that was my wife birthday and her first time on the keys. They really worked so hard on every details in our trip that my wife couldn't believe so much attention on her. We are extremely grateful with the owner, the captain, the tour guy on the Kayak...Amazing experience and definitely every penny that we expend really worth . Thanks for made us so special . We'll definitely be back.
Ready to go again! These guys are so amazing! The chill vibe was so fantastic. Nothing like having your own personal boat to be on in the keys waters. Bluetooth made it possible to listen to our own music and set the vibe. Jack Johnson and reggae were our choices for the day. Your captain can whip you up tacos right there on the boat and has plenty of bottled water. We have done several boat rentals and this by far was the best. They take you out in the back country where it’s hard to navigate, making it look easy. If you want a relaxing day out in the water like the locals do it, then book with Key West Boat Trips!

This stop is optional. If you want to have more time for the beach at Boca Grande or see Woman Key, Ballast Key area – we would skip this stop to give ourselves more time elsewhere.

There is a 2 mile stretch of deep water that we need to cross. Sometimes on windy days it can be bumpy there. If we think that it would be too rough we would modify the itinerary and destination.

Because we have to peak out to the Atlantic to get to these two islands – sometimes on windy days it can be too rough to go there.

Boca Grande – yes. Woman Key is a wildlife preserve area and Ballast Key is a private island. Even though we can’t go on them, we park the boat nearby in shallow water, swim and enjoy the surroundings.
