the 4 of us [2 adults and 2 kids aged 11 and 9] decided we wanted to take a trip to Egmont Key and based on the other reviews we saw of Charlie's Charters, decided to give them a try.
I rang first thing to find they had space for us on that day's cruise and 20 minutes later they picked us up from our apartment and took us down to the boat.
Aaron and Chris were the crew and they couldn't have been more friendly, informative and chatty throughout the whole day.
The run over to Egmont Key takes about an hour and Chris and Aaron pointed out plenty of interesting things and kept us all amused with various stories. My kids loved feeding the gulls with chips - and Chris helped them with this!
We had about an hour to tour the fort [take bug spray with you - they bite A LOT!] and then we went off to snorkel.
The water was a bit cloudy [and salty JohnH - it is the sea!] but we all had a fantastic time diving for sand dollars. Chris came in to help with the search and spent time explaining about all the different sea creatures we all found.
On the run back we saw dolphins and flying fish.
All in all a brilliant day. Would thoroughly recommend it!!
