“One of the best things to do in Key West”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

We took the 27-mile Island Tour departing from Casa Marina in later November. There was quite a bit of wind, so we went Stayed on the Atlantic side of the island and went North towards the Naval training area. The tour was excellent. The group was about 8 people with mixed boating experience. Two guides escorted the group: one in front and one in back. The lead guide ran 3/4 to full throttle most of the trip so long as people were keeping up. The lag guide kept everyone who wanted to go lower on track for the duration of the tour. I really liked their way of leading the tour because everyone was able to go at their own comfortable pace. We got a great tour of the island as well as few history and biology facts along the way. The best part was going through some of the mangrove forests at 20-30 mph. The guides stayed in the middle of the channel so everyone could just stay in the center of the wake and follow. Excellent tour and a very good value!

“Must do at least once!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

The jet ski tour is something we had on our list to do. It has been windy down here this week so we were a little worried. Turned out to be a blessing. Some spots were fun jumping the waves while other areas of the tour were very calm.
My wife isn't a thrill seeker at all and loved it. You must do this to get a different and great view of the island.

“great outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

I took a jet ski tour around Key West, which took almost 3 hours. My guide was Jake, who had the right mix of fun, sport and information. Jake really made me enjoy this adventure. He was an incredible guide. Barefoot Billy's was the perfect place to rent the jet ski, right in the Casa Marina compound. All the staff were very nice and took their time to explain all the details and provide you with all the information I needed.

“Get Wet n Wild with Billy's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Take a trip around Key West literally, on a Jetski. Awesome ride with some fun facts thrown in. Enough of an adrenalin rush for the teens, but not so much that the parents can't handle it! A FANTASTIC way to spend 2 hours of family time. Go see Matt, John, Ryan, and Wiggle for the best Jetski ride in Key West. If you're as lucky as we were you may even get to meet some dolphin friends.....maybe even a new calf!
