Overview

Morning Star Charters has been in the chartering business for the 32 years in the upper Keys doing oceanside reef snorkels and sunset sails, is now proudly part of the Key Lime Sailing Club family! Capt. Rick has handed down his family business to Paul and Key Lime Sailing Club’s great staff of captains. Laid back, easy going, fun, sailing, snorkeling charters in Key Largo, for those that seek the best. Sailing, snorkeling on our 50' sailing yacht, Morning Star offers charters for two to six persons. Enjoy the beautiful waters of Key Largo in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We are the longest existing sail, snorkel charter in the Florida Keys. Morning Star DOES NOT use the reefs that the snorkel boats go to. We have been going the extra miles to the best reefs for years. We want our customers to see the best, not the worst that Key Largo has to offer. Yes, we have seen the reports on some on line bulletin boards about "skip Key Largo when it comes to snorkeling". These are written by people who opted for the typical cheap cattle boat trips and have been taken to shallow, abused, small patch reefs with murky water. We want you to know there are reefs off Key Largo that rival the best in the world! Morning Star will take you to Molasses Reef, Pickles Reef, and reefs "off the beaten path" that are teeming with sea life, beautiful corals, in crystal clear waters! And when it comes to sailing, YES! We will sail as much as possible, it's a major part of what we do! In a greedy world where quantity has replaced quality we want you to know that old time values and pride in ownership still exist with Morning Star Charters.

We loved our sunset tour. We originally booked a snorkeling tour and easily changed it via email which was nice. Captain Paul was a great host. He took photos and answered questions happily. The cruise was very peaceful and relaxing. We highly recommend this charter....More
