Kevin, El Jefe, and Cal (the underwater cameraman) set sail out to the reef. We pulled out of the harbor and a pod of dolphin swam in our wake as the little island of Key West grew smaller and smaller. The warm water lapped the side of the boat while sea turtles came up for air and their favorite snack- jelly fish. With Sand Key lighthouse in the distance the crew tied up to a vacant mooring buoy and we all jumped in the 86-degree water surrounding the reef. Continue reading
Kevin and Jefe took Andy the cameraman and a gaggle of tourists out for an all day adventure with Sebago Watersports. Captain Sass set sail for the Atlantic waters near Sand Key Lighthouse with mates Lilly and Chico. After a gourmet breakfast and some incredible snorkeling the crew took the group to the Gulf side. About a mile and a half from Key West, behind Wisteria Island, everyone got to play at their own pace. The guests took turns parasailing, jet-skiing, and riding on a banana boat. The all-inclusive “Power Adventure” with Sebago Watersports has something for everyone. Continue reading
Kevin Redding went trolling on the Atlantic and bottom fishing at the Reef with Captain Chris Butler of Paradise Fishing of Key West. The day started with a pod of dolphin (porpoise) following the boat on our way out “The Humps”. At one point there was a fish one every line on the boat. Brian dropped his camera and I put the mic down as we each had to grab a pole. Brian caught and released a barracuda. I snagged a Mahi that Jeff and Jason were nice enough to let me keep (it was delicious). Thanks to Captain Chris, First Mate Jimmy, Brian Nelson the cameraman, Andy Perkins from AP design (www.designwithAP.com) for working on the photos, and Jeff from Atlanta and Jason from Tampa for letting us crash their charter. Call (305) 395-1416 and ask about going out with Captain Chris if you want to catch some fish. Be sure to tell them you heard about them from KeyWestBuzz.com if you want the royal treatment! Please like us on face book (under the weather) and thanks for listening!
