Fun Staff makes this activity really a Must on your Key West To Do List. West Winds made it tough to really Sail- is really the only negitive.

The Captain and crew, Bronza, Emily and Rose were extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. We felt safe and well taken care of. They gave us history and interesting facts about Key West and our excursion activities that were great and really added to the experience. We were served water, beautiful fruit, drinks, and chips throughout that were just right. The atmosphere was relaxing and fun and the crew helped my husband and our three teens feel very comfortable. Kayaking through the mangroves was a highlight. They are a small family business that made us feel like part of their family while we were on board the sail boat. We all loved the trip and would definitely rebook another excursion with them.
