About
Morning Star Charters has been in the chartering business for the 32 years in the upper Keys doing oceanside reef snorkels and sunset sails, is now proudly part of the Key Lime Sailing Club family! Capt. Rick has handed down his family business to Paul and Key Lime Sailing Club’s great staff of captains. Laid back, easy going, fun, sailing, snorkeling charters in Key Largo, for those that seek the best. Sailing, snorkeling on our 50' sailing yacht, Morning Star offers charters for two to six persons. Enjoy the beautiful waters of Key Largo in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We are the longest existing sail, snorkel charter in the Florida Keys. Morning Star DOES NOT use the reefs that the snorkel boats go to. We have been going the extra miles to the best reefs for years. We want our customers to see the best, not the worst that Key Largo has to offer. Yes, we have seen the reports on some on line bulletin boards about "skip Key Largo when it comes to snorkeling". These are written by people who opted for the typical cheap cattle boat trips and have been taken to shallow, abused, small patch reefs with murky water. We want you to know there are reefs off Key Largo that rival the best in the world! Morning Star will take you to Molasses Reef, Pickles Reef, and reefs "off the beaten path" that are teeming with sea life, beautiful corals, in crystal clear waters! And when it comes to sailing, YES! We will sail as much as possible, it's a major part of what we do! In a greedy world where quantity has replaced quality we want you to know that old time values and pride in ownership still exist with Morning Star Charters.

Dave and Angela were excellent hosts. While this trip was the Back Country sailing tour(4hr catamaran), the wind did not cooperate. Instead we did a 3 bay tour under motor and eventually caught the sunset while docking. Spectacular views and narration. Relaxing.

Two experienced sailing couples chartered a Catalina 22 on the bayside for a day. The main disappointment was being on the bay. In phone conversations, I had gotten the impression that we could sail in the ocean — to snorkel on a reef (conditions were suitable). But the Catalina 22s are all bayside.
Good parts: the sails and motor were in good condition. But the interior wasn’t very clean. Also, there was no port-a-potty - a bucket instead. Ugh.
Not much wind in the morning , so we anchored and went for a swim. The boarding ladder was poor.
The wind picked up in the afternoon, and we had a nice sail! And the staff was all quite good.

Great experience! Saw lots of colorful fish at the riff, winds were low so it was very clear underwater. I liked that water, towels, snorkeling equip was on board. My original al tour was supposed to Happen two days earlier however got canceled due to high winds! Captain G rescheduled me to Friday which was my last vacation date. He worked his majic for my family to visit the riff! Thank you so much!!

Spent a week at the Key Lime cottages and booked 4 adventures, 2 sunset cruises and 2 snorkeling trips. Everything was fantastic! Captain Sarah took great care of us and all the staff were so much fun to talk with and so willing to help. Snorkeling with only the 4 other guests aboard our pirate ship was so much more enjoyable than joining in one of the large tours where you get kicked repeatedly. Sarah took us to awesome reefs where we were the only ones around. We will definitely be back!

When we arrived we were told that they were upgrading our cruise to a larger sailboat (a catamaran). There was no delay on start time. We sailed with Captain Sarah. The sail was a delight not only scenic but instructive on sailing and an opportunity to take the helm. Captain Sarah was amazing. And most importantly, the sunset was amazing also. We will definitely sail with them again. Highly recommended local sail club.

This was easily the highlight of our trip to the Keys. Our captain Sarah was amazing and we would highly recommend sailing with her and this organization to anyone. Super personable, extremely knowledgeable (we even got a Keys history lesson!); just can’t say enough great things about her and the time we had aboard the Unforgettable. Sarah, thanks for showing us the ropes and hope to sail with you again sometime soon!

We had a wonderful sunset cruise and it just happened to be for my birthday. Captain Sarah and the Skipper were very nice and gave us a memorable evening!! We reserved the boat for just and it was well worth it.

We recently had an unforgettable day on the "Unforgettable" with Captain Sarah and First Mates Kristi and Kevin. They were committed to safety and making sure we had a fun day. As an added bonus, I got a yoga session with Captain Sarah while the others were snorkeling - another check off of the bucket list :) We'll definitely use them again when we're back in Key Largo!
