What an awesome find. Wanted a sunset cruise that was personably. Mike is very knowledgeable and a great guy. Will definitely book him again. We were lucky that we saw dolphins during our cruise.

The snorkelling was great but what made it so special was Mike. He was genuine, great company and very personable with extensive knowledge and experience. He is very patient and safety-conscious and has a lifetime of sailing experience, excellent knowledge of the local wildlife plus many interesting stories along the way. A great experience that we wholeheartedly recommend.

Mike was on point, all about safety, and us getting a great experience in the water snorkeling. When we first called he said he needs to check the weather, and he called promptly back in about 15 minutes to tell us the weather conditions and see whether we agree or not. Mike made sure we go at the right time... More

We tried for six days to get this guy to take us out. There was always an excuse as why it wouldn't happen. As experienced boaters, understand weather problems. But for 6 days? He finally made an appointment for Wednesday morning and then cancelled the night before. We finally figured out that September is the slow season and many people... More

My wife and I were looking for a snorkeling trip to Sombrero Reef and were looking for a morning trip to the Reef. We found Mike online and called. He suggested going in the afternoon because it would be the best visibility (taking the weather into consideration). It cost a little more to go with him but was so worth... More

My husband and I went out with Mike twice last week. I really love snorkeling but hate those crowded party boats, so I was looking for a more personalized way to go. Most charter boats seem to be in the $500+ range for a half day. Mike charges not by the hours but by the number of people, taking 2-6... More

We have been on big sunset cruises before and wanted something more personal for the 6 of us. Although it was windy, Mike knew how and where to go to minimize the wind. While it is a small boat-it was perfect for our group. We brought some appetizers and drinks and had some nice conversation with Mike. He was not... More

My cousin and sister were here visiting and we wanted to do a sunset cruise. I found Captain Mike on Trip Advisor. He did NOT disappoint. We left our shoes at the dock and boarded his beautiful catamaran with own own drinks and snacks. It was a beautiful evening in the Florida keys and a highlight of my family's trip... More

We were only in the keys for a few days with our children, aged 3 and 4. The winds were high (20-30 kts) the whole time, and we had struck out on a few options in Key West the day before when all cancelled due to winds. On a whim, I contacted Mike's Sailing Charters, and he accommodated our request... More
