I have now been out with these guys on 4 different trips. That says it all right there! I have done 3 in the keys and 1 out of the Tampa area. They do both inshore/back country and offshore. I have done both and they did not disappoint.Both Captain Chris and Captain Donny are amazing and make for an unforgettable day every time I step on one of their boats. They both feel like your friends by the end of the day and truly want you to fill the cooler. They know their stuff and will put you on fish!No question of who I will use or refer friends and family to when it comes to fishing in Florida.

Nick was a fantastic captain. He had a great sense of humor and has a local flare. He was great at keeping the lines baited and you never had to touch a bait or touch the fish he was really good at his job. Fishing was a little slow today but I'm sure my son says they don't call it catching for a reason.

Captain Chris responded to my my email request almost immediately and I booked an inshore trip for three. Captain Nick was our skipper for the trip and was very patient and pleasant. The fishing wasn’t very good that day but we still had a great experience. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone.

This was probably one of the best days that we have had in awhile. Captian Chris & first mate Nick were exceptional! Prompt in the morning, prepared, and showed us a great time. Chris knew the best spots to put us on the fish, caught our limit, did some catch and release, enjoyed a beautiful boat ride, and were quite entertained. This trip exceeded my expectations. Thank you!!!! Must do again.

Wow!! Booked Captain Chris for a full day deep sea fishing trip when my daughter and adult grandson came to Florida to visit. Was hoping for a great day of fishing. Weather did not cooperate - COLD and windy but Chris did not disappoint! We caught fish one after another even though we cut our time to half day due to weather. Came home with lots of fish and great fish stories of how none of us got sea sick. Great day! Sure we will book again!!

Chris took our family out fishing for sheepshead in Tampa, and that's most of what was reeled in (along with some snapper, grouper, and grunt – no complaints about those yummy fish)! The service and knowledge of Coastal Outfitters Sport Fishing is unparalleled. Visiting Tampa and planning to fish? I wouldn't hesitate to book another charter with these guys!

I am making this review as an avid angler and retired Navy Veteran. Captin Chris has the ultimate local knowledge, seamanship and best equipment( all high end Shimano) on the market. Scheduling was easy and we limited out on grouper early in the day. I travel and fish a lot of charters and his was one of the best I have been on. If you want safe, fun day with great memories and laughs you should choose this charter.

I’ve grown up fishing in Florida but always impressed to learn and catch something new with Captain Chris. He knows the spots, the tackle, and the time to make it worthwhile. Best to go with him if you want to make a day worthwhile. Thanks for the great times!

What can I say about this fantastic organization? I have fished with Captain Chris in the waters of the Tampa Bay Area, the Florida Keys, and the Bahamas. Every trip was unforgettable! What Captain Chris brings to the table in local knowledge is unrivaled. I hate waking up early, but on days I know I’m fishing with the fine people of this organization the morning can’t come fast enough! Will continue to work with this organization for all of my boating related needs! Captain Chris knows it all and does it all! You won’t be disappointed!

Chris took us out and filled all of our requests! We wanted to do some deep dropping and trolling. The conditions were gorgeous and chris quickly got us hooked up on various bottom fish that we wanted to target. Queen snapper and a limit of yellow eye snapper as well as some vermillion. Follow by a short run he then took us trolling and got out limit of black fin tuna. He kept us busy all day hooked up on different fish. Got a great mixed bag! We Will definitely be going back out with Chris on our next trip Islaorada! If you want a fun experience these are your guys!

What Are the Best Snorkeling Locations in Tavernier and Islamorada, FL?


The best snorkeling locations in Tavernier and Islamorada, Florida, are always up for debate. But, for many people the truth lies in the Middle Keys.

Here at Coastal Outfitters, we’ve been providing snorkeling charters in The Florida Keys for years and have seen it all. In our opinion, there are few more stunning snorkeling locations than those found in Tavernier and Islamorada.

In these locations, you can lay your eyes upon incredible tropical fish, turtles, coral reefs and much more. Here are the best snorkeling locations in Tavernier and Islamorada, FL:

Best Tavernier Snorkeling Spots

Tavernier is overlooked for offering some of the best snorkeling and diving spots in the Florida Keys. Anyone wanting to get up close to nature’s beauty should look no further.

Tavernier is located on the Key Largo Island of the Florida Keys, specifically between the towns of Key Largo and Islamorada. Tavernier is a short drive from renowned John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. It is home to a variety of unique dive sites.

Hen Reef and Chicken Reef

Thanks to a decent size of beautiful patch reefs, the Hen Reef and Chicken Reef is one of the most unique and best Tavernier snorkeling locations. If brain coral mounds, star coral mounds, friendly fish, and wrecks are your thing, this is for you.

With depths of 15-22 ft, it’s also perfect for beginner snorkelers! Hen Reef and Chicken Reef gets its name from the shape it has when seen from the air.

Location: Degrees/Minutes N 24 55.900, W 080 32.900

Little Conch Reef

Little Conch Reef is also considered one of the best Tavernier snorkeling locations, with shallow diving and snorkeling safe for beginners. Covering a half-mile flat sand bed, Little Conch Reef features large, dramatic ledges with a vast lobster population, moray eels and even the harmless nurse sharks!

Location: Degrees 24.942500, -080.473833

El Infante Spanish Galleon Shipwreck

People flock from near and far to dive down to the El Infante Spanish Galleon Shipwreck, one of the best Tavenier snorkeling locations.

This wreck was part of the 1733 Silver Plate Fleet and is known for being surrounded by a large pile of ballast stones. If you want to feel the ocean’s history up close, this is your chance!

Over the years, hundreds of silver coins have been retrieved from the wreck. Some say you can still find more!

Snapper Ledge

Snapper Ledge provides a shallow reef located just off of Key Largo Island. Snorkeling fans adore it thanks to the continuously present groups of Yellowtail snapper.

This is a great place to get immersed among thick schools of fish, including nurse sharks, moray eels, hog snappers, sea urchins, crabs, goatfish, rays, shrimps and maybe octopus too!

Molasses Reef

Molasses Reef is an unmissable experience. To some, it’s considered not just the best snorkeling location in Tavernier and Islamorada but the entire Florida state. It’s one of the most visited reefs in the world.

There is something for everyone with depths ranging from a shallow 10ft for snorkelers to 70ft deep for scuba divers.

At each depth level, you’ll find different environments with sand shoots, hard bottoms and various coral types.

You’ll see incredible Elkhorn coral, giant brain corals, perfectly clear waters and a variety of vibrant sea life.

As this reef is a little further out, we’ll come across bigger fish and sea life species than other snorkeling spots in the Florida keys. Who knows, maybe you’ll see a dolphin or Goliath Grouper!

Oh, and don’t forget the large number of caves that might be home to a sea turtle!

Best Islamorada Snorkeling Spots

Islamorada is a short drive from Tavenier and presents a great opportunity for snorkeling charter in The Florida Keys for all ages and skills.

Located on the Upper Matecumbe Key, Islamorada is referred to as such due to the nearby town. Here, you’ll find some of the best snorkeling locations in the Florida Keys, with wonderful patch reefs halfway between the key and outer barrier reef edge.

Alligator Reef

Alligator Reef is named after the USS Alligator that sank in 1825 while fighting off a fleet of pirates.

Ballast stones are all that remain, but that’s presented a vibrant home to a wide range of fish species, colorful coral and sponges.

Head a little further out and we’ll find the famous Alligator Reef Lighthouse. This is one of the best snorkeling locations in Islamorada, with an abundance of fish swarming underneath it for shade. The shallow waters here make it great fun to explore for novices and experts alike.

Crocker Reef and Wall

Crocker reef is the home to truly breathtaking coral formations and a small underwater canyon. Here you’ll get to witness sloping depths that are the backdrop for Turtles, eagle rays and barrel sponges.

A must-have on our list for the best snorkeling locations in Islamorada.

Davis Reef

Davis Reef is famous for its statue of Buddha on the sand bed. With depths ranging from 10-30 ft, you’ll see moray eels, schools of fish and sea turtles!

Victory Reef

Beginners and slightly more advanced divers will enjoy choosing Victory reef as their snorkeling location in Islamorada. With epic walls, ledges, caves and eye-catching coral, you’ll have the time of your life. Divers report back on seeing sharks, turtles, eels and more!

Things to Consider – Picking the Best Snorkeling Locations in Tavernier and Islamorada, FL

  • Remember the three Cs – calm water, clear water and collections (fish, reefs, ledges and corals). A great mix of these will make for a perfect snorkeling charter in the Florida Keys for all ages!
  • Your best shot at seeing colorful fish is around coral reefs and wrecks.
  • The best snorkeling locations in Tavenier and Islamorada are usually relatively close to the beach but too far out to swim – you’ll need a boat to get you there.
  • Snorkeling is a bucket list experience! It’s a day we promise you’ll never forget.

Scalloping Tours in Pasco County and Homosassa

We also provide Scalloping Tours in Pasco County and Homosassa, which is a huge amount of fun! Our captains will help you find these delicious treasures in Pasco County and Homosassa. Scalloping is easy for all the family and will take you within touching distance of marine life, so long as you can swim.

What are Scalloping Tours?

Scalloping is a form of fishing and super simple. You simply float upon the surface of shallow grass flat waters, enjoying nature’s beauty until you suddenly spot the blue eyes of a scallop! Take a breath and dive down to collect a scallop and place it on your bag. We can collect two gallons of scallop per person or ten gallons per boat. They’re easy to cook and delicious!

Anclote Key Snorkeling Tours

Just three miles from the mainland, Anclote Key includes four islands (Anclote Key, North Anclote Bar, South Anclote Bar and Three Rooker Island) of pure white sand and beautiful blue Gulf waters. As a protected nature reserve, this is your chance to experience an undeveloped island in Florida, with an 1887 lighthouse the only real evidence of construction. The 11,773-acre park is home to nesting sea turtles and over 43 species of birds, including the bald eagle, American oystercatcher and piping plover.

Our Snorkeling tours to Anclote Key expose you to Tarpon Springs history as you look out on the Keys, dolphins, magnificent birds and stunning fish. Once we reach the island, you can walk the perfect white sand beaches as we look for shells and sand dollars. Unless you own your own boat, this is the only way to visit Anclote Key and Shell Key.
