This was our 4th trip on the Blu Q and we hope to take many more. No trip has been the same, all great, only the day seems to go by way too fast. Captain Moe knows all the great spots and the boat is smaller and can go places the larger charters can't. They really go out of their... More

Michael, your review really makes the points that are so important for us in all our trips. Making every trip unique and different and intimate. Our goal is to make the trips feel like you're on a private boat with close friends, rather than some big commercial charter. I will pass along your comments to our great crew that makes... More

The staff at the Island House recommended this Gay Cruise, and I'm sure glad they did! Without question, the personal attention to every detail was delightful. We started out with snorkling in gorgeous crystal blue water, then we stopped at a nice sandbar for swimming and a great lunch with pulled pork, fresh fruit, and pasta salad. Later, we got... More

Thanks Stephen for promoting me to "Admiral". I'll have to find the appropriate uniform. I'm always grateful when our wonderful passengers take the time to let everyone know about their great experience on Blu Q and I'll make sure and thank the Island House for making their recommendation.

Booked in advance for a Saturday snorkel and kayak. Weather was perfect. Captain Mo and Mate Trent were friendly and fun and served up drinks, fruit and lunch. The boat is very clean and comfortable. The snorkel at the reef was spectacular and much better than any other snorkel trip I had taken in Key West. Fish everywhere. We then... More

Booked at short notice as a trip with another provider was cancelled, and I'm so pleased we did! There were seven of us on the tour which was a perfect size. Mo knew exactly where to take us to ensure we had a great snorkeling and kayaking experience and made sure we saw dolphins too. I'd never snorkelled before but... More

Where else in the world are there vast expanses of shallow ocean just waiting to be explored? And why not enjoy the experience with a handful of other like minded travelers? I took part in the snorkel and kayak tour which took us to a couple remote stops in shallow water near some small mangroves to enjoy everything you always... More

"Where else in the world?" When I sailed to Key West 20 years ago, I said the same thing. That's what keeps me here. There are so many great, wonderful places that we just love to explore with our guests. Every year, we try and find someplace new to go, away from the crowds. I hope we added some great... More

Wow, this was an unexpected treat after visiting Key West more than a dozen times and doing the shore excursions with the Cruise Ships. This is the kind of trip that makes Key West one of those memorable vacation sites. The crew were complete professionals and provided an outstanding time along with food and beverages.

"An unexpected treat"...... even after 12 visits to Key West. We're very flattered and appreciate your review. Now, you'll just have to come back another 12 times to see what you've been missing on Blu Q. Each trip is different and unique. Till then. Thanks for your review. Capt Steve More

I am not an adventurous person. My idea a great vacation is NOT trying anything new. So a 5-hour cruise to snorkel and kayak for the first time was not on my bucket list. Guess what? I had a great time. Captain Mo and mate Nigel provided great service and expertise, and they kept everyone comfortable with everything from snorkel... More

It's nice to see people that can have a new adventure, get out of their comfort zone a little, and experience not only something different, but special. That's what memories are made of. Our trips on Blu Q offer something for everyone, with or without the "bucket list". Bravo to you! Capt Steve More

If not the only sunset sail this is the best gay ship you could ask for. The crew make sure your time aboard is fun and you feel like family. Drinks while on board included wine, beer, soda, water. The crew were professional and fun. If winds are good the sails are up. Perfect sunset photos and be who you... More

Been on two separate trips with blu q and was disappointed by both. Please recognize that the times they advertise aren't guaranteed. Even on nice weather days our trip was cut short. One by a full hour and a half!! Captain Mo seemed knowledgeable, but was also a little snarky (and not in a fun way) when we inquired about... More

What a wonderful half day on the water with "family"👏👏😎 I loved the time on the sand bar. Was also pleasantly surprised by the lunch, loved loved the pasta. Sangria or beer and two first mates that were so sweat and nice. Captain Bob is a wealth of knowledge on Key West and sailing ❤️
