Red Bull Charters

For 30 years, Captain Bob has navigated boats across the water, a hobby that included taking local Boy Scout troops on tours of some of Key West's most scenic locales. Despite this background, Captain Bob didn’t originally intend to use his 26-foot Nordic tugboat for chartered tours. He bought the vessel, aptly named Red Bull, for him and his wife to use, but after several people asked to charter the boat, he finally gave in.

Today, Captain Bob ferries passengers on aquatic journeys through the Gulf of Mexico's pristine waters. Though the captain offers several different outings—such as snorkeling near reefs and shipwrecks—the most popular tours are the ones that encompass a little bit of everything. During these trips, Captain Bob and his crew tour the harbor, floating by Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park and the historic seaport before passengers take out their fishing poles and catch some dinner. Then, the captain takes groups to see playful bottlenose dolphins as they swim in their natural habitat and stick Kick Me signs on the backs of passing snorkelers. As the boat rounds back to the harbor, it floats beneath the warm colors of an ocean sunset.

With Garmin fish finders and GPS tracking, Red Bull can easily navigate Key West's waters regardless of which trip customers choose. The boat also boasts a sundeck, air-conditioned lounge, and full galley.
