I had the privilege of going on their annual 4th of July trip to see the Independence Day Fireworks. I was nervous because I am not a natural socialiser and was travelling alone. As we gathered close to the boat there were groups of people chatting. I am no good at that. We boarded the boat and I got to... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. To address a couple of your comments: I am always the Captain on that trip. It's one of my favorite of the year. We purposefully stay about 1/2 to 3/4 a mile from the fireworks to get the best advantage so we're not directly under them and the smoke fallout. And... More

By far one of the best things to do in Key West. It was a really fun atmosphere and the crew takes very well care of everyone. When my husband and I come back we will definitely be doing this again.

This was our 4th trip on the Blu Q and we hope to take many more. No trip has been the same, all great, only the day seems to go by way too fast. Captain Moe knows all the great spots and the boat is smaller and can go places the larger charters can't. They really go out of their... More

The staff at the Island House recommended this Gay Cruise, and I'm sure glad they did! Without question, the personal attention to every detail was delightful. We started out with snorkling in gorgeous crystal blue water, then we stopped at a nice sandbar for swimming and a great lunch with pulled pork, fresh fruit, and pasta salad. Later, we got... More

Booked in advance for a Saturday snorkel and kayak. Weather was perfect. Captain Mo and Mate Trent were friendly and fun and served up drinks, fruit and lunch. The boat is very clean and comfortable. The snorkel at the reef was spectacular and much better than any other snorkel trip I had taken in Key West. Fish everywhere. We then... More

Booked at short notice as a trip with another provider was cancelled, and I'm so pleased we did! There were seven of us on the tour which was a perfect size. Mo knew exactly where to take us to ensure we had a great snorkeling and kayaking experience and made sure we saw dolphins too. I'd never snorkelled before but... More

Where else in the world are there vast expanses of shallow ocean just waiting to be explored? And why not enjoy the experience with a handful of other like minded travelers?

"Where else in the world?" When I sailed to Key West 20 years ago, I said the same thing. That's what keeps me here.

Wow, this was an unexpected treat after visiting Key West more than a dozen times and doing the shore excursions with the Cruise Ships.

"An unexpected treat"...... even after 12 visits to Key West. We're very flattered and appreciate your review. Now, you'll just have to come back another 12 times to see what you've been missing on Blu Q. Each trip is different and unique. Till then. Thanks for your review. Capt Steve More

I am not an adventurous person. My idea a great vacation is NOT trying anything new. So a 5-hour cruise to snorkel and kayak for the first time was not on my bucket list. Guess what?

It's nice to see people that can have a new adventure, get out of their comfort zone a little, and experience not only something different, but special. That's what memories are made of. Our trips on Blu Q offer something for everyone, with or without the "bucket list". Bravo to you! Capt Steve More
