Both of our boats are available for private charters. You can

snorkeling or a combination. If you prefer, we have several specialty
charters which are listed below.

our special charters which include Wrecks, Nite Diving, Lobstering,
Spear fishing and Sun Set Cruises.
Wrecks: Choose from the several
wrecks available here in the upper keys. They include the USS
Spiegel Grove, USCG Duane & Bibb,
Benwood and the Eagle. Descriptions for each of these wrecks
are listed on our website under “Dive Sites”. See Schedule >
Dive: We depart our docks during the early evening and
get you to the site at sunset. Our captains select from a number
of shallow reef sites, Davis Reef being the most popular reef
for ease of navigation. Our nite dives are one tank/one location
charters. Departure time depends on the season. See Schedule >
Sunset Cruise: We can take
you on a magical cruise to the bay side and watch an incredible
sunset. You can bring
beverages or arrange with the shop at an additional charge
to serve champagne.

Lobstering: Lobster season
opens August 6th and closes March 31st, with a special 2-day
mini-season the last Wednesday and Thursday of July. Remember
that the "mini-season" was just for us divers - NO
commercial fishermen allowed. Let us show you how to turn a good
dive trip into a GREAT Florida Keys Lobster Extravaganza! Combine
it with a dive/lodge package for the best value available.
See Schedule >
Of course, we have our secret locations in
non-protected areas for finding these tasty creatures and we're
not going to post
them here! However, our captains have years of experience in
the Upper Keys so trust them to know where to look. You'll want
to book early because the opening of the season is very busy.
Space on the boats will fill quickly.
If you are looking to be a true "pro," we are offering
the chance to learn from the best! The Underwater Hunter Class
is designed to teach you all the skills (and highly secretive
tricks) to not only catching lobsters but spear-fishing, shell
finding, and hunting of all sorts. When finished not only do
you have a fridge full of great seafood, you also get an Underwater
Hunter Specialty Card!
Fishing: You have the option of spending the entire dive
spear fishing at one site, two sites or drift diving.
diver is required to have their own fishing license and
equipment. We have our select locations where groups in the past
quite pleased with their catch.
