Here are some answers to common questions we often get regarding our sailing, snorkeling and sunset trips. We hope these answers help. If you have other questions, please feel free to call us anytime at  305-432-0046.

Do I need a reservation?
Reservations are recommended to ensure a spot on the boat. There are some quiet days when you can just hop on, but if you’d like to be sure, book ahead.
What should I bring with me on the charter?

You will want to bring:

  • Food/Snacks (drinks are provided)
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses (preferably polarized)
  • Towels
  • Camera
Do you provide the snorkel gear?

We do! We will have a mask, snorkel and fins for you but if you would like to bring your own you are welcome to do so!

Do I need to know how to swim?

Essentially yes. There will be no in water instruction or help, unless there is an emergency, from the crew. We highly recommend that you be comfortable swimming in several feet of water by yourself for several yards. We do have pool noodles in addition to the required life vest for extra flotation.

How can I avoid getting seasick?
To avoid seasickness be good to yourself!  A good night’s sleep and healthy diet will help a lot. Limit the amount of alcohol you drink the night before and the day of the charter. There are many products available over the counter throughout the Florida Keys to help with your possible seasickness. Take as directed prior to your trip.
What about tipping?

The standard tip for the crew is 20% of the total fare.
