The Captain & The Boat
Our 21-foot deck boat offers comfortable seating in a surround couch style, plus a hard top for shade. The boat is equipped with two ladders at the stern: one for shallow sandbar charter trips and one for snorkeling at the reef, making entering and exiting the water safe and easy. It is powered by a reliable 150-horsepower Yamaha four-stroke engine that is quiet and fume-free. This quiet engine allows us to approach wildlife on our eco-tours without disturbing the dolphins, birds, fish, and other animals in their natural habitat around Islamorada in the Florida Keys. The unique tri-hull design of the boat ensures a smooth ride and the ability to cruise in shallow waters as shallow as 2 feet, giving charter passengers the chance to get closer views of the beautiful water and wildlife surrounding Islamorada.
Capt. Samantha is a Florida Keys local with extensive knowledge of Islamorada, Marathon, Key West, and Key Largo. Growing up playing in the waters of Lower Matecumbe, Capt. Samantha developed a passion for marine habitats and went on to pursue a degree in Marine Biology at Barry University. Now with over 15 years of experience as a licensed captain, Capt. Samantha runs a 21-foot deck boat at Robbie’s Marina, offering exciting sightseeing charters such as eco-tours, snorkeling, island tours, and sunset cruises to landmarks like Indian Key, Lignumvitae Key, Alligator Lighthouse, and Everglades National State Park. Her boat charters are private and can be tailored to meet your needs, whether you want to go bar hopping, view the Florida Key wildlife, or propose on a romantic sunset cruise. KeyZ Charters and Capt. Samantha provide the perfect Florida Keys adventure for the whole family.
Originally from Kentucky, Captain Jenna has always had a great passion for the marine world. After earning her degree in Marine Biology from West Florida, she decided to pursue her passion further and relocated to the Cayman Islands, where she completed her instructor training and became a full-time boat captain. Jenna's scientific experience has opened up many doors for her with regard to marine conservation, such as logging and collecting data on shark species in Grand Cayman, as well as conducting research expeditions within Wakatobi National Park in Sulawesi, Indonesia. When she is not on the water, Jenna is traveling and ticking off destinations from her ever-growing bucket list. She has already logged dives in the Pacific, Indo-Pacific, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico, and is now exploring the Atlantic Ocean, providing unique boat charters and experiences in the Florida Keys.
KeyZ Charters has a second 21’ deck boat featuring couch-style seating throughout the vessel and a Bimini top for shade. The boat is equipped with two ladders, one on the bow and one on the stern, making it easy and safe to enter and exit the water during your private Florida Keys boat charter. The boat’s stern also has a platform for standing and a couch for lounging while viewing the beauty Islamorada has to offer. Our boat charter is powered by a reliable 200-horsepower Yamaha four-stroke engine with no fumes, providing a quiet ride that won’t disturb the wildlife on eco-tours. Additionally, the vessel has a Trii-hull, making it more stable and roomier, and allowing it to cruise in shallow waters of up to 2 feet. This gives customers a closer view of the wildlife and beautiful waters of the Keys.
