We are a family run business! Our family, Lenny and Connie, and their three adult children Mia, Max, and Margo have been full time residents of the Florida Keys for over three years now but have been vacationing in the upper keys every summer for over 15 years.
We have always made family time a priority and enjoyed a lot of activities as a family, however some of our best memories from when our kids were young till this very day, were made on the water fishing, snorkeling, and enjoying the beautiful waters of the Florida Keys. We are so happy to be able to introduce other families from all over the world to boating in the Florida Keys.
It makes our day when customers return back after a great day on the water and they express to us how they had one of the best days of their entire vacation in the Florida Keys, out on the water on one of our boats!
Whether our customers visited one of the many beautiful coral reefs, snorkeled and hung out at Alligator Lighthouse, fished either inshore or offshore, visited the world famous Islamorada Sandbar or visited one of the many restaurants we recommended, the common denominator is that they had a great time and made memories to last a lifetime which is our main goal!
Our family, along with our crew who, are also like family, truly enjoy meeting people from all over the world who are here to enjoy our island paradise! Between all of us we have extensive knowledge of the area and love to help people experience all the keys has to offer.
We feel extremely fortunate to be living and working here in the keys and love our new business and all the new friends we have made here already, and are looking forward to meeting even more friends and families in the future!
Want to Get Out on the Water But You’re Unsure About Navigating Down Here In The Keys?
Well don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! All of our boats come with a brand new Garmin GPS system preprogramed with routes to and from all of the most popular destinations in the keys. When you plug the destination in, the Garmin will give you a highlighted track to follow that is fool proof! You can arrive to and from you destination with confidence:)
We also have tracking systems on all of our boats. When the boat senses that you are getting close to a “No-Go Zone” an alarm will sound off and warn you. We have strategically placed alarms where people tend to run aground the most frequently.
Last but not least, we offer prop and skeg insurance for $75 per day per motor. If all else fails, you always have the option to be covered!
We do our very best to make your excursions as easy and seamless as possible so you can go out on the water with confidence!
