The Captain & The Boat

Our Comfortable 21-Foot Deck 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.

Our Second 21' Deck Boat

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.
