Snorkeling in the Florida Keys

Private Boat Trips - Bamboo Charters

The snorkeling available in Islamorada and Key Largo Florida area is amazing to say the least! We are located in Heart of some of the best shallow Coral reefs in the Florida Keys. It’s a short boat ride to the Iconic Alligator Reef Lighthouse as well as Cheeca Rocks, Hens & Chickens, Conch Reef and many more incredible locations. Our boat, the Chubby Mermaid, was built for comfort and safety and carries all the gear we need for a great adventure on and in the water. Plenty of shade and seating for you and your group of up to 6 people is available on the Chubby Mermaid. Capt. Matt Bellinger owns and operates Islamorada Sandbar Fun as well as Bamboo Charters and has been chartering Snorkeling, Diving and Fishing Charters here on the waters and reefs of Islamorada since 1990.

Snorkeling is available on any Adventure you book with us with the exception of the Sandbar only trip.

Florida Keys Sandbar Fun

The Islamorada sandbar is nothing less than spectacular. It is situated less than a mile offshore of the Florida Keys and is a beautiful 15 minute boat ride from our dock. Once we are anchored up in the warm turquoise waters of the Atlantic, you can have your toes in the sand and a drink in your hand and not a care in the world.
