Hopping Sandbars in Key West


About the guided trip

3-4 hours
Food: No
Tour Size: Private - 6 people max
Price: 3 hours = $450 | 4 hours = $550

On this Key West boat tour you will get to see not one but few breathtaking locations. The first sandbar we will take you to is just about 25 minutes boat ride from our marina. It just gets more interesting from there. We will make longer stops on locations you like the most but we’ll also cruise around to see other sights.

See the mangrove trails of Mud Keys and go mingle with locals at Snipe Point sandbar after. You will not want this day to be over.

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!

Unfortunately not. All trips are weather permitting and sometimes the itinerary would need to be modified so we can avoid rough and choppy waters.

Because to get to Snipes we have to run in deeper gulf waters, this sandbar is not accessible during days of N, NW and NE winds. If we can’t get you there, we would offer to modify your itinerary so you would still have a very enjoyable boat tour.

On the 4 hours trip you get more time to relax and enjoy sandbar stops.

Usually not. There’s only a handful of these gorgeous destinations so they are often visited by local boat owners. The traffic is usually higher during weekends and holidays.
