Great crew couldn’t save the day!
Michael Keogh, Jan 2020 Verified
Our afternoon safari started with promise, blue sky’s, cheerful crew and enthusiastic tourists. Once under way our captain tells us the coral reef location’s seas were too choppy for snorkeling so we headed to calmer seas. Unfortunately, the shallow location provided nothing colorful but a monochromatic landscape devoid of memorable sea life. Our kayaking around a mangrove island turned into near harrowing experience as we were forced to seek shelter on the interior of the mangroves to avoid a sudden lingering storm. High winds, chilling rain and open seas provided a serious challenge for most of the kayakers to return to the mother ship. Once safely on board we headed back to shore, without benefit of warmth or the setting sun. In conclusion, it’s no fault of Dangerous Charters the weather was bad which resulted in our memorable excursion. The crew did the best they could given the circumstances.

The tour is really nice, I recommend everyone to use one day to take it. The driver and all the other people were really nice. Parasailing was AWESOME.
I’d say this is the best part of my Key West vacation.

It doesn’t get any better than the backcountry safari. Everything you need to enjoy the trip has been thought of. From the food, drinks, to activities – it’s all you can ask for and more! I really like that they included coral and shipwreck exploration on this tour because I’ve been meaning to do that for a long time! Overall, I’d say this is the best part of my Key West vacation.
This mangrove tour is incredibly amazing!
Russell B, Aug 2019
The backcountry was a bit rough but exciting. So if you are looking for a tour that is beyond those “touristy” spots, this trip would be perfect for you. Get ready to kayak, snorkel, and sail around. You’ll see a lot of great scenery and have a good time. Highly recommended by me!
The kayaking and snorkeling trip was such a beautiful experience.
Michaela W, Aug 2019
My partner and I had such a good time. The mangrove islands were fascinating and the water here at Key West was so blue and clear. Sailing has always been something I wanted to do and this trip gave me a chance to do just that. So I would definitely recommend this package to anyone who want a day full of fun-filled activities. It’s an experience you won’t forget.
This is probably one of the best packages you can find here.
Happy Tourist, Aug 2019
I’d recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in having a day full of fun and exploration at Key West. This is probably one of the best packages you can find here. Everything was organized so you won’t have any hassles at all. The food was tasty, and drinks were available for the guests. But what is a “backcountry safari” without some adventure? You’ll get heaps of that on this tour as well. Some activities you should expect include sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking. If you decide to book this tour, take your friends or partner with you – they will have a good time as well.
