Three hour cruise to Boca Chita. Everything was great. Only complaint is that it takes an hour to get there and another hour to return leaving only one hour on the key. Another half hour would have been perfect.

A perfect excursion. Our Captain was expert in sailing our private, 6 person sail. It was a great ratio of sailing, kayaking, lunch, and sailing. The weather went from cold and very windy to blue skies and gentle winds. The vistas are tropical perfection.

A lovely place - when we visited it was quiet with plenty of peaceful places to sit and enjoy the amazing scenery.

Captain Jamie was fantastic. we went across the bay to Boca Chito and had a great time. Everything was as advertised. He shared the right amount of information, a few facts here and there but let me and my family enjoy the voyage.

My husband and I had a lovely experience on this full-day tour with Captain Ron. He kept us entertained with stories on the ride out to the Boca Chita Key, but gave us plenty of time to enjoy the peace and quiet on the way back. He also allowed us to be as little or as much involved as we wanted to be, in terms of putting up the sails and steering the boat. There was only one other couple on-board our sailboat which contributed to a feeling of idyllic seclusion. Upon arrival at Boca Chita, after climbing to the top of the lighthouse, we had options of snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking, or kayaking. We did the paddle boarding and absolutely loved it, especially when a manatee joined us for a bit. I can't recommend this tour enough!
