The fellow who helped my daughter and I was Kenny Stanley. He reached out to us -asked us what our interests were, and filled out a map with sharpies that explained absolutely everything we might want to see along the Keys. He advised us where to stay (saved a LOT of $ vs what we were originally going to do), where and how to park in Key West (saved a lot of time and headache), gave us lots of coupons and freebies for drinks and pie, and we saved at least $80 on food with them, and sent us on 2 tours that were perfect, and great value for the bucks. One in Key Largo for a dolphin, eco, and reef tour, and one in Key West for a sailing tour with great snorkeling, kayaking and eco,and great eats and wine to go with. Had a fantastic time. Maximized the enjoyability of our trip for far less expense than expected. Thank you so much !

Bad experience. I got a boat tour that hand stops that never happened. Couldn't back out because I paid up font at the information center. When I got to the place I realized how much I overpaid.

I would like to know what trip it is that you were booked on and what happen. Its our policy that we never charge the customer one dime over the cost of the ticket of the walk up price. The deposit that you paid 25% should of been off of the walk up price, in order to reserve your seats. I will look into it on my side. If there was a difference in price, I would like to refund you your money.

We also have to make sure the trip is what was told to you by our sales staff. If it was not then you need a full refund.

There are two Welcome Centers. Very close. This is the first. They led us to believe by booking a hotel with them it would be cheaper when in fact it was $60 more then if I booked it through Trip Advisor. Check your Smartphone Trip Advisor first before booking.

The second welcome center is by the Chamber of Commerce and this is the one you should go to.

Karin was the best. We thought key west was sold out due to a festival. The only rooms available started at 450.00 per nite.
Karin was very pleasant giving and helpful. Room on Duval for 2 nites at a very reasonable rate

This visitor center not only can help you book hotels in all of the keys and Key West at 60% off they will also make arrangements for any kind of water sport you would like to do, from just a boat ride out on the water to scuba/snorkling/waterskiing/ sunset wine tasting...they have it all. To add, they have a whole side of retail with t-shirts to towels and sunglasses and sun dresses at the lowest prices around. Its the first stop once you come off the bridge in Key Largo, it has the yellow semi submarine in their parking lot. It also has these awesome big chairs out front thats great for your photos. Stop in and get your free map and check out what else they offer.
