We chartered the boat for my husbands 60th Birthday and our guests had the best time!! The staff and owners were amazing from our signing the contract to the execution of the party! DJ Rico played requests and gave up the microphone so we could roast my husband in front of his family and friends!! Music was playing all night and he took requests spanning all the age groups on board. My mom is in a wheelchair and the crew ensured she had the best seat in the house and she danced that night!! Food was catered by Island Time and WOW!! Try the Potato Martini bar!! Sounded bizarre but it was a great buffet on board! Mashed potatoes with any toppings you desired: Jerked Shrimp, Prime rib, BACON!! Thanks Island Time for a very memorable occasion!!

“My husband rules the conch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

From the minute we made our reservations for the sunset cruise the staff made us feel like old friends! The staff really made the difference. It was a beautiful cruise around the bay. There was plenty of dancing, laughter and socializing! My husband won the conch blowing contest! Very clean, and the DJ played music for everyone. A great party on the water! What a great way to spend our anniversary. Drinks were very reasonably priced and the $20 per person add mission was well worth it!

Island Time was amazing. The people on the cruise were fun and helpful. The dj was great. The bartenders were overwhelmed because we probably drank more then anybody ever, but they handled it very well. The people at Island Time also were very helpful when we booked the cruise. We had over fifty people and it couldn't have been more fun

“Nice Bay Cruising for Sunsets or Special Event / Occassion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

We have been several times on Island Time Cruises in Key Largo. They offer weekend Sunset cruises and specialty cruises for Special Events / Occassions (ie NY Eve, 4th of July, local Boat Parade, etc.)
Island Time Cruises is a 'mock' paddle wheel boat with two decks. Inside / air conditioned lower deck and upstairs covered open deck. There are bars located on both decks with reasonable priced drinks.
They will have either a DJ or live band depending on the cruise / occassion.
We went for NY eve and they had a Reggae band on the upper covered outdoor deck. We stayed out for the fireworks at midnight.
The crew is friendly and helpful and would recommend to both visitors and locals alike.

“Sunset cruise without the sunset”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

We were under the impression that they changed the times as the sunset times change but the boat left a full hour after sunset. The point was to be out on the water watching the sunset. Very nice staff and drinks are reasonable but not much point in a sunset cruise without the sunset
