What you'll do

For those with a sense of adventure, couples and families alike, Capt. Steve offers a day trip to Boca Grande, an outlying island 17 miles West of Key West traveling through the back country of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Boca Grande, a nesting bird habitat, has one of the largest natural sandy beach in the Florida Keys and last year hosted over 20 turtle nests. We pull the boat up on the shore and spend the day reef snorkeling, dolphin watching, picnicking, and taking a casual stroll along the beach observing wildlife. The Keys are a migratory path for eagles and falcons and butterflies. And some months the shore dances with an array of butterfly heading South. Our reefs host over 300 species of colorful tropical fish. Pods of bottle nose dolphins live year round in the Florida Keys and often are seen just offshore teaching their young to catch food. We stop along the way at the shipwreck of U.S.S. Coral that was owned by Henry Ford and was the largest private yacht in the world at 200 ft in 1900. NBC.Com Travel recently featured Captain Steve's Eco-Tours as the best of the FL Keys and Key West!

Guest safety

Things to keep in mind

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Guests need to be able to swim if they are going to snorkel.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

camera or cell phone is recommended to record memories.

More tips

After snorkeling while traveling back to Key West you bring a cover up. I do have an over size tee top on the boat for shade but an optional long sleeve shirt can help protect you from the sun. Please let Capt. Steve aware of any health issues bringing any medications if needed.
