We loved this trip and would recommend Ken and Kathy’s boat to anyone we know. We were two graduate students looking to explore key west and the everglades for about $1500 over 5 days, including lodging. We shared the boat with another couple we didn’t know before arriving, and this was fine. Ken and Kathy worked hard to please and they were great. They did little things, including slowing and stopping down when dolphins started swimming with the boat, rigging up comfortable seating in various areas of the boat, providing clean snorkel gear, and a great meal. It was great to have any seat we wanted, and a quiet enjoyable ride out and back.

What we enjoyed most was that we had a lot of freedom when we got out to the snorkel areas than we would have had on a commercial boat. There are several buoy areas where all of the boats go out to and dock at, and let people snorkel from. We were all healthy, young, and active, and we went out quite a bit farther than and stayed in the water longer than the people in the commercial boats were doing. It was nice to have a relaxed time frame and the freedom to get out and about. We are encouraging our families go to do the same thing. For us, it was definitely worth the cost over commercial boats.

I had read all the great reiviews about this trip and hoped it would live up to expectations
I assumed we would be sharing the boat with other couples, but on that day it was just my husband and I. Everything about the trip was just magical, our hosts Ken and Kathy were so welcoming and got just the right balance between being friendly and chatty and also recognising that it was nice to have time to ourselves too. We sat out on deck and were supplied with wine and beer, it was just perfect sitting in the sun surrounded by the blue ocean. We also got to see dolphins, and for me the highlight a huge turtle swam along-side the boat. We had really lovely cooked lunch and a chance to chat with our hosts. Kathy used my camera to take lots of photos of us, and we have some really beautiful shots to remember the trip by. All in all I cannot recommend this trip highly enough - you must book!
