Private Double Activity Trip Ending in a Sunset Cruise
Enjoy a bit more time on the water. We embark from the Safe Harbour Marina on Stock Island. With a feel of “Old Key West”, the shrimp boats and local craftsmen provide a picturesque beginning to your afternoon. Once aboard you will appreciate the luxury accommodations of our charter catamaran with plenty of room to roam about. Our catamaran is very stable and provides a comfortable ride. Ask to help raise the sails or take a turn at the helm if you like. The destinations for each of the optional activities are less than one hour away, making this 5 hour trip ideal for two of them.
If you prefer to get back for Happy Hour, we are happy to change our typical schedule:
Check in: 12:30pm Departure: 1:00pm Return: 6:00pm
