Excellent day! Small boat atmosphere was nice and we really enjoyed talking with the other participants. Perfect mix of kayaking and snorkeling. The crew of Olivia, Joe and Micah were outstanding - attentive, skilled and had great facts to share. We saw sharks, turtles, lobsters, sting rays to name the big ones along with a lot of bird life. We did the morning cruise and have already recommended it to others!!!

Just like last time we booked Danger's 1/2 day snorkeling and kayak sail, this trip was great. Captain Joe and Mate Luke knew what they were doing, made it a great trip out and back and took care of everyone. Luke did a great job taking care of someone who tipped their kayak and was struggling with the wind. Thanks!

Awesome experience! Captain Bronza, V-cash, Brianna, were an amazing crew! Highly recommend- snorkeling was great and I liked how they split the group for the kayaking so we could hear our guide very well. Plenty of beverages and snacks! We had a blast!!!

This charter was perfect for any group. Dan and Rose were informative, attentive, and maybe most importantly made everyone feel safe and comfortable. Their clear love for the beauty and wild life of the Keys came through during the entire experience.It was nice to not have to bring anything additional to enjoy the experience. Everything was provided and was clean and well maintained.Lastly because the weather took a turn to the rainy side (as is known to happen quickly here in The Keys) the trip could have been a bust. Instead, the crew kept it light and fun while also offering us sufficient shelter, if wanted, from the elements.

A really well-organized tour that is 100% worth every penny spent. You get lots of time in and on the water. The sailing part is peaceful, the kayaking and snorkeling are a blast, and you get lots of snacks and drinks! Best Key West activity.
Fantastic time!
