    The BLUE "Q" a 42' Catamaran. Outstanding Captain, Captain Steve, and Crew on this "all Gay" daysail. (they let me on anyway, saying that I would probably be Gay by the time we got back !!) That made me a little nervous, but I need not have been. Everyone was very polite and friendly.

    The cruise I was on was "clothing optional", so if you are not Gay or not up to this kind of adventure, this boat is NOT for you.

    This is an exceptionally clean boat and exceptionally well managed. The food is good too. We snokeled out in the Gulf Stream - quite a treat in February! Wonderfully warm and clear/clean water. A little "skinney dipp'n" in the Gulf Stream and you feel reborn!!

    A big, fast, and comfortable boat. Easily the best deal in Key West.

    Get on the water! Beaches in the Keys aren't as good as other parts of Florida, so you need to get in a boat or on a board or just grab a snorkel and get out there. The reef is 4 to 6 miles off shore and that's where most of the fish are and the water's the clearest. My favorite thing is fly fishing on the flats in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Do diving or snorkelling. I had arrange to do some technical divres on USS Curb, and lugged my diving gear as appropriate. We got blown out in the end, but still managed to get a couple of reef dives in, and more interesting, dives on 'Cayman Salvager' and 'Joes Tug'
    Water is warm which is the main reason to a New England diver - and fairly clear, though I did have a 10' viz dive.

    Reef trip

    Take one of the many snorkleling trips out to the reef. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a majestic creature like this ray which swam below me. I would estimate he was 10 feet across. Is there a marine biologist in the house? I'd love to know what species he is.

    Do a snorkel or dive trip especially if you missed it further up the keys.
    Visit nearby coral reefs via the 65 foot catamaran, The Fury.
