Billy figured that with Key West's powdery beaches and paradisiacal waters, a business could grow itself if it supplied high-quality watersports rentals and guides who could unveil the beauty of the area. To that end, he began building a team and a fleet that would take guests on adventures both above and below water. Today, guides conduct jet-ski tours on Yamaha WaveRunners, as well as lead groups of kayakers and standup paddleboarders on tours that meander along the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico. They also lead underwater ventures, such as scuba diving and snorkeling to technicolor coral reefs and historic ships that have lost the will to float. Individual equipment rentals cater to guests who prefer independent explorations. It's this breadth of tours and rentals that has earned Barefoot Billy's a certificate of excellence from TripAdvisor.
Gnarly Harley Paddle equips customers with paddleboarding gear and shows them the ropes before sending them skimming across the beautiful blue waters. Paddlers are likely to spot an abundance of flora and fauna in each environment. In addition to facilitating fun jaunts for casual paddlers, the Gnarly Harley sells new gear to veteran paddlers and newcomers who get hooked.
A PADI 5-Star Resort Center, the dutiful divers at Sea Dwellers Dive Center of Key Largo have been helping beginner snorkelers hone their natatory know-how for more than 35 years. Prospective plungers will commence their salty sojourn with easy-to-grasp snorkeling instruction in safe, shallow water before moving on to the well-tended waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. While each trip's particular dive site is determined by that day's weather conditions and the status of Poseidon's zoning permits, possible destinations may include the azure eddies and bustling sea life of Molasses Reef or the reverent beauty of Key Largo Dry Rocks Reef––home to a replica of Italy's famous ¬Christ of the Abyss statue and colonies of brain coral, known for their grooved ridges and ability to control the market price of lobster with their thoughts.
Sail Fish Scuba owners Chris and Jennifer Kerr want their clients to be able to do it all, exploring the water above and below with the necessary equipment, skills, and know-how. Beginner and advanced scuba divers can begin or further their underwater educations, or head out on one of the guided reef and wreck dives in a number of locales. Snorkeling outings are ideal for more casual explorers, as no extensive training is needed for open-water dives, and guides snap photos of participants during the trip that they can show to all their envious camel friends. Other outings include guided kayak tours, or leisurely boat rides through the mangrove trees.
At locations in Bonita Springs and Marco Island, Drs. Fred Eck and Joseph Goth and their team deliver a generous roster of dentistry services. They examine and clean teeth during routine checkups and beautify smiles with Invisalign retainers, dental implants, and porcelain veneers that cover chipped or discolored teeth.
