Didn't get into the water untill ater 11 pm and left around 3:30 but still allowed ample time to do all sports provided. There was no "iceburgh" slide as promised. It was pretty much a "free for all" once allowed to go into the water. Lunch consisted of mediocre hamburger or hotdog with rolls in the bag (nothing like the spread shown on the website). No plates. Celery and carrot sticks with dip earlier but still no plates that I saw. There was a downstairs with tables but I don't think they were used. Water provided out of a cooler with small "dentist" cups. Drinks available to purchase ($5 for small plastic cup and free refills or $1 a piece if not cup purchased). Small snacks also available to purchase. Have to swim a good distance to banana boat, jet skis, and snorkle reef (taking into account the strong current that was present while we were there). Banana boat requires you having to pull yourself up out of deep water with little or no help which can be a bit embarressing (lets not forget the "professional" photographers that are there to catch it on tape and camera for you to purchase later as they laugh at your expense). For those of you who are more athletically inclined, the more "bang" you get for your buck. For those of you who are not, you may leave dissappointed. You may want to simply rent a jet ski or kayak for the day and purchase a $10 set of snorkle gear. Overall for me, it was a fairly expensive ($109 per person, or $99 per person with coupon (in addition to the tip encouraged by the captain at the end of the day) ok , been there done that moment.

Pros: MORE THAN ENOUGH TIME

Cons: NOT ALL WHAT WAS PROMISED

Crew is lazy, just stand and watch.... doesn't help. If you do not know swimming, I do not think it is a good idea to go for this sport. Crew just ask you to grab a life jacket and get into the water. Wave runners, Banana boat, iceberg would be 100-150 feet away. You have to swim 100 - 150 feet to get on them. If you do not know swimming it would take hell lot of time to get there and you would get exhausted.Crew does not help but at end of the day looks for tip (gratitude) for nothing.

I went on vacation with my family; the age range was 8 -65 years old. We weren't sure how granny would do out in the boat all day, but it was awesome. The boat is HUGE, it has a downstairs airconditioned cabin with a big screen tv. The upper deck has some shade and a bar and seating. The trip has so many activities we couldn't decide what to do first...I think we started with the iceburg climbing mountain and moved on to the waverunners after that. There was so much stuff to do that you didn't really have to wait for anything, when it was free we jumped on. I thought we wouldn't have much time on the waverunners, but everyone was so worn out that they were just sitting there at the end of the day. The banana boat is great, you have to try it. Gramma and the little kids went down into the ac to relax and take a nap the rest of us sat upstairs sipping daquiris and enjoyed the day, did I mention the full bar?? The food is good too, burgers dogs, veggie tray etc. We will definately be making this our main outing whenever we come to key west. Thanks Sunset, you guys are awesome.

Pros: Full Bar, AC, Fun Stuff

Cons: That we only come down once a year!

I must say that the day was fun but it was not as promised as far as the time we were out there. They say you'll be out from 10-4 but it turned out that we were only out from 11:30-4. There was plenty to do though once out on the boat, I thought it would be impossible to use the wave runners but I got to use them several times throughout the day. The guides were nice and helpful just can't get past the time thing. I figured if they couldn't get us out until 11:30 that we would stay out later but that wasn't the case.

My husband, my eight year old son and I spent a day with the people at Sunset. We werent sure what to expect, knowing we would be just a few of many who would be out that day. It started with a short trip to thier 'honey hole' right off the coast of the isles. My husband was picked to ride the jet skiis behind the boat to the location, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Once hunkered down, the crew quickly unloaded all the goodies ( snorkel gear, banana boat, kayak, etc) gave everyone the over view of the area, and pointed out a ship wreck off the side of the boat for the snorkelers. We tried everything. The ship wreck, while cloudy had lots of fish, from a school of baracuda to several other varieties i couldnt name. We were able to go skiing and jet ski riding without much of wait times. They served burgers and hotdogs, and gave everyone their free rein over the rest of the boat. We also choose to go parasailing, which the boys just loved. We were handled very professionaly, and on the way back to the main boat our captian pull along side of a lobster boat, were we were introduced to a few lobsters recently caught. We did notice other do it all companys around and about where we docked..but all of them headed in before we did. SO for the money you get the most time and amenities with Sunset.

Cons: We couldnt stay longer!
