Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Morning Star Charters has been in the chartering business for the 32 years in the upper Keys doing oceanside reef snorkels and sunset sails, is now proudly part of the Key Lime Sailing Club family! Capt. Rick has handed down his family business to Paul and Key Lime Sailing Club’s great staff of captains. Laid back, easy going, fun, sailing, snorkeling charters in Key Largo, for those that seek the best. Sailing, snorkeling on our 50' sailing yacht, Morning Star offers charters for two to six persons. Enjoy the beautiful waters of Key Largo in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We are the longest existing sail, snorkel charter in the Florida Keys. Morning Star DOES NOT use the reefs that the snorkel boats go to. We have been going the extra miles to the best reefs for years. We want our customers to see the best, not the worst that Key Largo has to offer. Yes, we have seen the reports on some on line bulletin boards about "skip Key Largo when it comes to snorkeling". These are written by people who opted for the typical cheap cattle boat trips and have been taken to shallow, abused, small patch reefs with murky water. We want you to know there are reefs off Key Largo that rival the best in the world! Morning Star will take you to Molasses Reef, Pickles Reef, and reefs "off the beaten path" that are teeming with sea life, beautiful corals, in crystal clear waters! And when it comes to sailing, YES! We will sail as much as possible, it's a major part of what we do! In a greedy world where quantity has replaced quality we want you to know that old time values and pride in ownership still exist with Morning Star Charters.

“Best sunset cruise in key largo!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We booked a sunset cruise with captain Rick during our visit to key largo. Best part of our trip! Romantic! Max of 6 people at a time so no large crowds. .. we were definitely into just relaxing and did not want to deal with the large crowds especially as we were on our wedding anniversary trip. Would definitely recommend booking with captain Rick!

“Wonderful snorkeling trip!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Went out yesterday with Captain Rick and had a wonderful time! It was a beautiful day out on the water. Snorkeling at Molasses was excellent! Saw a sea turtle, nurse shark, a few reef sharks, large sting ray and oh so many beautiful reef fish and corals, along with remnants of the Wellwood wreck. Looking forward to a return trip!

Capt. Rick is a salty, no-nonsense guy with your safety and happiness in mind. Molasses reef is the best!

“Sunset cruise”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Better than we could have hoped for. This turned out to be the best part of our vacation. Captain Rick offers a service that you would Not find on the crowded cattle boats. Next vacation in Key Largo, this will be a must, to do again!

“Fantastic Snorkel and Sail”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

My wife and I had a fantastic snorkeling and sailing experience with Capt Rick. We were scheduled to go on Thursday but he advised us to wait for better conditions on Friday. We are glad we waited. We had a beautiful hour long sail out to Molasses Reef, where the conditions were pretty good with about a 2 foot chop. Water visibility was 50 feet. We jumped in and were instantly amazed by the clouds of fish swarming around the boat.we very happily paddled, floated, and dove for a solid 90 minutes. We saw hundreds of beautiful fish in dozens of species,including a small nurse shark. Then we had another very relaxing hour long sail back to dock. This is NOT your typical Pennecamp cattle boat loaded down with 50 people. Capt Rick will NOT take your money up front and then either cancel or go out in poor conditions. He really wants you to have a great experience, and we did!
