Get Out On The Water In The Florida Keys
Welcome to Laid Back Key West! Looking for fun and adventure? Then it's time to get out on the water. For over a decade, we have provided the best private charter boat tours in Key West. We want to take you, your family, and a few friends out on the spectacular warm turquoise waters of the Florida Keys.
Fishing charters in the Keys are the perfect way to spend a day. We know the best spots to fish for mangrove snapper, yellowtail snapper, and an occasional yellow jack. Let us take care of the fishing gear, bait, and chum, so you can fish for dinner. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a new fisherman, we'll show you a great time. For added excitement, we also offer shark fishing on a catch and release basis only.
If you want a great snorkeling adventure at a living coral barrier reef, or island hopping in the sandbars, we've got you covered. If you are looking for a great dolphin watch excursion, then let us show you where the dolphins like to play. We know all the best spots, with a few hidden gems.
Explore our activities
This is a perfect Key West boat tour to get out on the waters of Key West and do multiple activities. Instead of having to choose one type of activity (fishing, snorkeling, dolphin watching, sandbar tours, lobstering, or a sunset tour) we allow you to create a key west water activities package so you can do exactly what you want, without having to rush due to time restrictions. We want to give you and your family an experience to remember for a lifetime.
Catch some lobsters before the commercial season begins!
Lobster Mini Season is the last Wednesday and Thursday of July every year. It use to be for the locals only and has become two days where the public can get out there and catch their lobsters before the commercial season begins.
Usually, this means the lobsters are plentiful and catching ones "limit" is fairly easy.
With this trip you, your family, and friends will enjoy a Key West private sandbar tour. We will relax in the sun at the sandbar swimming, walking, and exploring.
Feel free to bring any food or drinks. We will have plenty of ice, water, and cooler space on the boat.
If you would like to snorkel and visit a close by sandbar during your wonderful day in Key West this tour is perfect for you.

Words from our customers
Unique Explorations In The Florida Keys
South Florida is a paradise for wildlife lovers. Exotic marine life like bottlenose dolphins and black tip sharks are common sightings. Snorkelers can see parrot fish, tangs, spiny lobster, hogfish, barracuda, stingray, angelfish, and many other colorful fish underwater. Sea turtle sightings are common during nesting season.
Sand bar hopping is a popular activity, appreciated by locals and visitors alike. When the tides change, islands like Boca Grande Key, Snipes Point, Marvin Key, Marquesas Key, and Woman Key are uncovered long enough to entertain explorers. Take a guided tour with a knowledgeable local guide and hop between sandbars for maximum fun. Be sure to take a cooler full of drinks and a picnic lunch to enjoy.
