The all-male (Gay) snorkeling, paddling, sailing trip added another cool element to our Key west experience. The Captain and first mate were very accommodating and good at being inclusive of everyone. Our group of ~12 was nice men. mostly couples - but couples there to make friends. I'm sure the group dynamics change a lot between groups - we had... More

We took the 11-16hr boat trip on a rather windy day. It's a very clean nice catamaran. Friendly crew. In order to get on board one has to waive all his rights to claim. A bit spécial if u ask me. The lunch was nothing special. Supermarket stuff. The sailing is very nice. But the snorkeling is disappointing. They are... More

We ventured out on Wednesday, April 12th. What a great day we had on the Blu Q. We did hit some rain during our snorkel but it quickly cleared up and our kayak to the Mangroves was incredible. We felt safe and secure with the extremely professional and fun crew! We can't wait to come back!!

Blu Q is special for a day sail in Key West. Head out to the reef for snorkeling. The Blu Q has all the equipment. And help if you need it. The reef is a special spot. Later sail to an outer island for Kayaking. We didn't care that the Gulf water was 72 degrees in March. Lunch served in... More

This is a really nice venture to watch the sun set. The crew is well versed and very kind. We wore shorts and a short sleeve t-shirt even though it was windy. You may want to bring a light jacket along.

Captain Steve started the day with a friendly smile and a passionate disclosure that this trip is a favorite for him and his partner. The ride out to the island was relaxing and even a little exciting at times when we skimmed over the wakes of other boats. We saw an osprey nest on a small island and continued further... More

Absolutely perfect weather for a sunset sail. Captain Steve and first mate Trent are the best tandem you could want. The Blu Q is a beautiful vessel and the crew is top notch. A sail with these guys is a "must do". Don't miss out!

This was my first time being out on the ocean. Captain Steve, Capt Moe, and the gorgeous first mate Trent were just phenomenal. I really wasn't expecting such a relaxing and fun time. Great lunch, wine, beer, what more could you want! First time snorkeling and they take time to make sure you are comfortable with what you are doing.... More

We did both types of sails with Blue Q and both were terrific. Captain Mo and Trent were a perfect combination of friendly and hospitable. And, clearly they are excellent sailors with a ton of experience to make everyone feel very safe. The sailing on both events was awesome. The 2 hour sunset sail was beautiful. The clouds took on...
