Sail, Snorkel & Kayak Day Trips

Come explore the backcountry in the Florida Keys with Danger Charters while we take you on a secluded island kayak tour among nature at it's best.

Explore the wondrous and enigmatic mangrove islands with one of our very knowledgeable nature guides. Learn all about the mangrove eco-system, while paddling through a maze of mangrove-canopied canals and streams, that are home to an incredible tropical array of birds, rays, sharks, sport fish, and more.

And, no worries if you’ve never kayaked before; our kayaks are very stable sea kayaks that novices from ages 6 to 90 and beyond can easily paddle with a few simple instructions from your guide.

We provide all equipment, including:

  • Snorkeling gear
  • Wetsuits in the winter months
  • Kayaks and paddles
  • Fresh fruit and healthy snacks
  • Soft drinks and water
  • Wine & beer (after snorkeling)

Weather and location permitting, we usually end our full day Out Island excursion at a deserted island beach or a shallow sand bar in gin-clear emerald green waters. This is the deserted island beach experience you’ve dreamed about! With cold beer, wine, or soft drink in hand, we relax and intimately explore along the water’s edge these beautiful areas. Join a guide for an informative walking tour, or relax on your own in this idyllic paradise.

The Morning Half Day Excursion is a great way to start your day off. This trip is a 4.5 hour trip on one of our 65 foot shallow draft schooners. It includes snorkeling, kayaking and sailing.In addition we also provide a tropical fruit tray, chips and salsa, beer, wine, sodas and of course water.

The Afternoon Half Day Excursion is similar to the morning excursion but gives you a chance to sleep in a little later if you choose. On the afternoon trip you will enjoy the same activities as the morning, kayaking, snorkeling and sailing. Snacks and drinks will also be provided along the way. One of many great things that stands out with this trip though is the Key West sunset seen from the water on the way home. Truly one of the best ways to end your day.

The Full Day Excursion is the perfect trip for you all that love being out on the water. It’s got everything the half day does and then some. We will spend plenty of time snorkeling as well as kayaking around one of the mangrove islands. Weather permitting we will stop at a island with a beach or a sandbar while taking in all the beauty of our Florida Keys Eco system. Between activities we will provide a full lunch while you relax, enjoy it and take in some sailing. Beer , Wine, Water, Soads and snacks are also provided. Danger’s specialty shallow-draft vessels visit a variety of private and pristine patch reefs in the calm and protected waters of the Florida Keys backcountry to provide you with an exceptional and personal underwater experience. And, due to the topography of islands and flats that surround the wildlife refuge, you can be assured of great visibility and calm seas while you snorkel amid a beautiful collection of corals, sponge gardens, tropical fish, and dramatic marine life. Never snorkeled before? First time snorkelers can be assured of one-on-one instruction and assistance. We find introducing folks to our world very rewarding! In addition, we are pleased to provide prescription-strength masks and wetsuits in the winter-time at no extra charge.
