Our
Eco Tours

Come enjoy the diverse ecosystem of the Florida Keys. Ride comfortably aboard our 26-foot Twin Vee Catamaran as our experienced and well-informed Captains share their knowledge of the waters and history of the Keys. Mellow Ventures is a private six-person maximum charter. We avoid the spots other boats visit, which means that you’ll experience more remote and beautiful sights. Explore the booking options that work best for you.

Get on the water before the rest during the peaceful early morning hours, take in the tranquility of the back country that most don’t get to see. Personally our favorite time to go out and witness the exquisite beauty of the Florida Keys.

As an all inclusive Private charter, your trip can include any of these activities

Each day is custom tailored to you. You can do what you want, when you want! Not sure what you want to do? Let our seasoned staff suggest what they think is your best option for the day. No matter how you choose or what the day brings, you can be sure you’ll have an experience to remember.

Paddleboard & Kayak Tours

Navigate the inner channels, wrecks, flats, beaches and mangrove islands of the Florida Keys backcountry. The boards and kayaks are well suited for any skill level. If you’re new to paddle boarding or SUP (stand up paddle boarding), you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to pick up. For those who might be uncomfortable standing, feel free to sit or kneel and enjoy the view from there. All of our trips are strategically focused in tranquil waters. Common sightings include cormorants, pelicans, ospreys, loggerhead turtles, sharks and stingrays, just to name a few. SUPing though the clear, calm, biodiversity of the mangroves is a mellow and eye-opening adventure.

Snorkeling

Whether you’re an avid underwater photographer, or a first-time snorkeler, you’ll love our excursions to varied and colorful marine communities. With our top-quality snorkels, masks, and fins, you’ll be free to focus on exploring destinations like the barrier coral reef and sunken shipwrecks.

Keep your eyes open for any number of new friends: stingrays gliding away from you in graceful, undulating ripples; sea cucumbers; sea stars; flowering underwater plants; giant sea turtles; octopus, and all sorts of tropical fish.

Take your time, and enjoy the silence of the always-surprising underwater world of The Keys.

Fishing, Spearfishing and Lobstering

There is no doubt that The Florida Keys is one of the most diverse fishing destinations in the world. Once you take a look under these clear, turquoise waters, you will notice the abundance of life.

If fishing the shallow water wrecks, calm backcountry channels or protected mangrove islands sounds appealing to you, then join us for a mellow fishing experience.

For those that prefer the underwater world, you can test your spearfishing ability on snapper and grouper or maybe just try to catch your own lobster dinner. Whatever your choice, you’ll enjoy all the opportunity for catching your own local seafood.

Reef & Wreck Trips

Take a dip to the fascinating world of sunken shipwrecks and the only living coral barrier reef in North America.

Beginning and advanced divers alike will be captivated by the marine life surrounding the third largest reef in the world and intriguing, history-laden shallow water shipwrecks.

You’ll see everything from tiny tropical fish, barracuda, goliath grouper and large, green sea turtles swimming and exploring alongside you.

We’ll put you in calmest clearest vis areas for viewing these underwater structures and for the best snorkeling experience possible.

Sponge & Coral Gardens

Ever since the early 1800s, when thriving sponge beds were discovered in the remote, backcountry waters of the Florida Keys to drive a lucrative commercial industry, underwater explorers have encountered a diverse range of wildlife surrounding these communities. Find out why sea stars, sea horses, conch shells, and octopus are drawn to them, and get up close and personal with hogfish, eels, giant puffer fish, and Florida spiny lobster with our boats’ unusual access to secluded coral gardens. To learn more about protecting and conserving these natural treasures, visit our friends at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the independent nonprofit Mote Marine Laboratory.

Diverse Wildlife Encounters

Whether you want to simply enjoy the sun and fresh air, get your feet wet, and relax, or treat yourself to an educational field study in tropical marine biology, we’ve got you covered with as little or as much instruction as you’d like. Wade in the shallows or walk and collect seashells strewn across the beach by tides, watch the dolphins play or observe the nesting Osprey, if that’s what you’re in the mood for.

On our adventures, children and adults have plenty of opportunity to learn about the interrelationships between flora and fauna inhabiting the Florida Keys. By the end of your trip, you might even be able to identify some of your favorite new plants and animals.

Private Island Excursions

Peace. Quiet. Natural, untouched beauty, where the horizon merges with endless skies. Sound like heaven? We’ll take you there. Families with little ones can enjoy the unplugged simplicity of wandering through tide pools and discovering fish, crabs, urchins, snails, and algae beneath your feet. Couples wanting a romantic getaway can escape to protected beaches with fine white sand and coral-fringed shores, where they might be joined by an exotic bird resting on a branch, hanging its wings out to dry. Linger until dusk, take deep breaths, and truly relax as you watch the setting sun reflect on an expanse of glassy water…and know that wherever you go, you can carry that feeling with you.
