Dolphin EchoShow your sweetheart how special they are with a very private cruise to a island sandbar. Or have the family or that group of special buddies out for a private  Sailing adventure. Whatever you choose to do, it's always at it's best while cruising the tropical waters of Key West on Catamaran ECHO.

Tons of usable deck space, and even a "black beach" trampoline sun deck, makes ECHO the perfect boat for a small to medium size group. With plenty of space to relax in the shade or the sun, along with the upscale service and local knowledge of our crew, a private charter on the Catamaran ECHO has been the best part of many Key West vacations since 1994.

Echo's 2-Hour Private Sunset Sail is the perfect way to watch that famous Key West sunset on the open water. This "cruise to nowhere" allows us two hours for pure sailing with no hurry to get anywhere. Our destination is to the best view of the changing watercolors of sunset just off the shores of Key West.

Dolphin DanceBut for private day trips, reserve enough time to do everything that you want to and truly enjoy it. Normal departure times are at 9:00 am or 1:30 pm, but we may adjust your departure time for the length of the trip, or to also include that Key West sunset.

On a 3-Hour trip we would have time to experience Wild Dolphins OR a Snorkeling Stop. Book a 4-Hour trip, and you'll have enough time to enjoy a more complete trip with both activities, and trips of 5-Hours or more open up even more destination / activity options, or just more quality sailing time on our tropical waters.

Just pick the priorities for your Private Charter and include it in the comments section of the shopping cart, or just leave it up to us for the conditions of the day. We will confirm your priorities with you before the trip.

  • Wild & natural Dolphin Encounters
  • Snorkeling - Coral Reefs, Shipwrecks, Sponge Gardens -  (sheltered beginner areas available)
  • Tropical islands and sandbars
  • Wildlife refuge and tropical bird cruise
  • Fast, stable catamaran cruising & sailing lessons 
  • Picnics & parties on the water 
  • Bachelor / Bachelorette parties, engagements, small weddings

If the Captain cancels the event, ticket-holders will be allowed to reschedule tickets (at same terms - subject to availability), receive credit for a future event, or receive a full refund. ECHO may authorize to reschedule or refund a reservation for a confirmed, unavoidable emergency or reason that's acceptable to ECHO management.

For cruise ship passengers: In addition to all the above, if you contact Echo ASAP in advance of your reserved departure time to inform Echo that the late arrival time or change of itinerary of your cruise ship will cause your party to miss their Echo reservation (as confirmed by the port of Key West), then you will receive a full refund, or not be charged any balance due to Echo.
