Captain Mo and First Mate Trent were quite professional and provided a great experience both times I went! One was a sunset cruise, the other was snorkeling. Price was very reasonable; food quite good, travel mates very nice, Trent is indeed the thing that wet dreams are made of! Will go again in a heartbeat.

Great! Captain Mo and Trent are awesome. They are very interactive and encourage socialization. Very knowledgeable of the area and history. Worth every penny and more. Trip was 5 hours long and time flew by. Excellent. Would do it over and over again. Thanks guys!!

I often get asked the question, "If I come alone, will I meet someone?" A trip on Blu Q is a very social and casual experience. I've found over 20 years, that many people meet on Blu Q and go on to be good friends and even more! It's so relaxing that people just naturally want to interact with each... More

This was my second experience with Blu Q, and it was definitely a good one. While the weather may not have been the best for sailing, it still managed to be a fun and enjoyable trip. We decided to do the Sunday excursion, which included a trip out to one of the sandbars around the island without the snorkeling that... More

My friends and I did the 2-hr Sunset Tour. It was great. The 2-man crew were very friendly and knowledgeable. I am from the DC area, so I don't get to see a lot of different types of marine life. Earlier in the day, I saw quite a few I had never seen. I was able to describe what they... More

We booked the Friday snorkeling & sandbar excursion. Captain Moe & First Mate Trent welcomed us upon arrival along with about 14 others.... More

Having been a previous customer, you probably know me and my crew really well. And if so, you would know I'm the kind of owner that is very involved in the day to day business. Over the 21 years I've operated in Key West, I've gained many wonderful customers through sharing great experiences on Blu Q. Captain Mo has been... More

This was 3rd trip on the BluQ. Every time I go to Key West one of the first things I book is my trip on the BluQ. It's also one of the things I talk about the most when I get back. If you go to Key West and you don't have at least 1 trip on the BluQ then... More
