Key West Inns and Charters

Has anyone stayed at the Red Rooster Inn in Key West? Also, any recommendations for fishing and/or snorkeling charters would be welcomed!

thanks

For snorkeling, I highly recommend Floridays - they dock at the Hyatt. Unlike the catamarans that stuff people in like cattle cars, Floridays limits the number of snorkelers to very few...perhaps 20 or so.

Jenine- I stayed at the sister property next door, the Chelsea House and found both Inns to be clean, well run and carrying the full flavor of Key West. The location is about midway on Duval St making it a ten minute walk to either end of the street.
The added attraction at Chelsea was a nude sun deck, placed away from the main pool, but beware, you could still catch an eyeful of naked tourist...

Overall, the two inns share some facilities and are a perfect Key West destination. Have Fun!

I've been out twice with Restless Native. The owners, Rebecca and A.D. are really nice and very cool people. They have a very fast trimaran and limit the groups to six people. On my first trip there were four of us and only three on the second trip. They also do only two rather than three trips per day and schedule their reef arrival so that the large tours are just departing when you arrive or just arriving when you leave (the big boats mostly do three trips per day). We had great time in water and very few people snorkeling around us so the marine life was excellent. Second trip it was so windy that we couldn 't snorkel but did some kayaking off the boat and then went on an extended sunset cruise. I would go with them again even though they are much pricier than the other charters (about $50-60 per person if I recall correctly). They don't go to Dry Tortugas and on my next trip I di hope to go there as it looks like a fun day and the snorkeling there is said to be excellent.
