Large Group Charters (More than 6 passengers)

Islamorada Sandbar Tour

For those who are looking for something private with a group of more than 6 and looking to personalize their experience we offer the option to book more than one boat for your group of more than 6 (Up to 18).  The reason is that in the United States and more specficially, throughout the Florida Keys, most boats are licensed by USCG for up to 6 passengers. Very few if any who do private charters (snorkel sites, sandbar, sunset tours) offer options for more than 6 passengers on a single vessel.  Additionally, an inspected vessel including life rafts is required in order do more than 7.  It’s very expensive and lots of overhead to maintain the certification once inspected. A break even point is tough for less than 20 or 30 passengers. I don’t know of any in Islamorada that do private charters of more than 6 on one boat. For more than 6 you need additional boats. We can help with that..  If you’d like to book a private charter of more than 6 the cost is $165 an hour per boat and we offer, 4 or 6 hour charters.  Click below to book.




“This team was hands down 5-star status all the way. They took a group of 14 of us out split between 3 boats and we had a whale of a time. Captain Matt had some all time one-liners that had us laughing until we cried. Captain Jim and Mark were also bringing the noise. 5-star service on a 5-star afternoon! Capt. Matt also gave us a history lesson on the Mangrove beans on the way in. Nat Geo on water!” – Blake Mowry
“Our large group of 15 spent an absolutely wonderful day with Captain Jim and crew. Our group consisted of 8 teenage boys and their 7 moms and we all agreed it was the highlight of our trip. We started our morning exploring Alligator Reef Lighthouse and Cheeca Rocks. Oh, my word. We saw sea turtles, nurse sharks along with every fish imaginable. We spent the final few hours on the Islamorada sandbar playing ball, paddle boarding and relaxing. On our trip back to the marina we saw the pier which were used in the filming of Bloodline. Book with Captain Jim. You won’t regret it!” – Kristy Timmerman
