    What a great day in Key West! Private boat to Mangroves with paddle boards, beautiful nature, private beach stop, and a great boat captain, Bethany. Despite high winds we were able to stay protected by the mangroves and fully enjoy this beautiful place. Highly recommend Lazy Dog. You won't be disappointed

    Always super fun and always a ton of action. Captain Bill Wickers and mate Jesse work together to make the trip so enjoyable. Super professional, and detailed. I highly recommend the Linda D charters.

    Boat rental experience was amazing! Boat was packed with all the necessities for a fun day on the water and around the island. Iced down/fueled up and even offered rods if fishing is in the wheelhouse for your crew. Waypoints are saved in the gps for all the best beaches to access by boat and areas to snorkel even with track lines to navigate the waterways! Highly recommended 10 out of 10 for the easiest safest way to cruise around stock island/key west.

    I was in town for work and had some time off to explore Key West. I called Lost reef to see what their availability would be for the next day. They took down my contact information and said they would call me back when they found out their availability. I received a call back within an hour for a dive the next morning. The follow-through and professionalism of everyone I dealt with was top notch. The dive boat was nicely equipped for easy entry and exit of the water. The captain and dive master, were very knowledgeable and helpful. They incorporate safety in everything they do. Very helpful on deck for the participants. The crew was very easy to talk to and eager to answer any questions we had.

    We chartered the Cowgirl for a group of 6. The Captain and Deckhand (Scuba Steve) were the best and did an outstanding job of making sure we were comfortable, and enjoyed our whole trip! Although the fishing was tough, in the end we walked away with 5 Mahi and a very nice Mutton Snapper. We would fish with the Cowgirl again any day!

    We had the best time. Caught a variety of fish. Captain knew just where to go. We don’t fish, and Captain remained patient and helpful the whole time!

    Rented a golf cart and owner was amazingly friendly and laid back. We had the best time thanks to his referral of places to visit while riding and got awesome pictures! Would highly recommend and if renting again will be from Island Safari Tours!

    Literally everything about this boat was perfect except the crowd size. Leaving port and coming back every guest was up top and it was very crowded. A bit too crammed for me. Captain Clay and his crew were fantastic though. A very hardworking group. They seemed quite a few times to be working as if they were 4 people and not just 1. More than once I even over heard a guest asking if they wanted them to help them out. Sunset needs to give the crews a break and book less people for their outings. My husband and i booked the "do it all w/jetski and parasailing" even with 6 hours out at sea there were so many people he didn't have time to go knee boarding because the last rides of the day went to the volunteers. Again, too many people and too few staff. With all that said, my husband and I will absolutely be doing this again, however will be checking and double checking the guest size limit and booking our trip based on that. Huge thank you to Captain Clay and his crew, they made the whole trip worth it and worked their butts off. I say it's time to give them all a raise give them a break by booking less people.

    We discovered a free afternoon on our last day in Key West. We had been watching fish come in off the docks and wanted to get out fishing. Stopped in at "Gone Fishing" and told them we wanted fast fishing of even small fish rather than slow fishing for a trophy. The Red Bull was available and price reasonable compared to what we had been seeing. Quirky tug boat appealed to us. We are experienced at fishing and it was just what we wanted. Capt Matt was accommodating to us from our music selection to where we went. Bottom fishing resulted in about 7 varieties of fish that were small but fun to catch and see. We were leaving the next morn so we did catch and release but Matt had info on where to take fish if you wanted a restaurant to cook them up for you. We went from 430-830pm and I didn't think the sunset would be very impressive but it was beautiful and very worthwhile to be out on the water during this time!! A lovely afternoon. It was just the two of us but it would be perfect for a small family as well.
