In early 2023, we reluctantly decided to wind down our Lucky Fish Scuba charter business operations over coming months.
We wanted to meet the needs of divers, snorkelers and other water-loving visitors to the Keys with one-of-a-kind private charter boat trips for families or small groups of 6 passengers.
It remains unique in the area for operating as an exclusive private charter with personalized service and flexible trip timing on a premium boat.
Initially focused on scuba only, the business quickly expanded with demand for snorkel trips, sunset cruises and eco tours – and for customized trips featuring a combination of these activities.
We have an active website, established social media presence and strong reputation — including TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards in 2021 and 2022.
Although primarily serving tourists to the Florida Keys, the customer list includes a number of repeat customers.
For almost five years it’s been an amazing win-win adventure for customers and ourselves. In fact the past three months have been among our best in the history of the business with little bit of everything : diving, snorkeling, sandbar, ecotours, sunsets and even an advanced open water course.
This business opportunity would be ideal for anyone who’s dreamed of running their own boat charter in the Florida Keys – or add a proven premium option to an existing dive operation.
If you know of anyone even remotely interested in living the dream of a charter boat owner in the Florida Keys, please have them get in touch.
Keep diving. Keep bringing your family out on the water together. Keep supporting small businesses, especially those in tourism. Keep being a Lucky Fish.

Oh my gosh! What a perfect day for a very very special occasion…a surprise, underwater proposal. They showed us a beautiful, private dive spot and made sure that the proposal went off without a hitch. The videos are perfect. Jill, Glen, and Stephanie, thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

What an awesome time!!!! Every year for my birthday, I look for different things to do with my friends. This year, it was a sunset cruise, which far surpasses a dinner at yet another restaurant. … A plus is their actual head (toilet) aboard. Their cat is a perfect size for 6 passengers. It is well appointed, spotless and very stable. Highest praise for Jill, Glenn and Suzy!
OMG. To be honest I booked this charter because the boat had a full functional bathroom. Luckily, I never needed it. … The boat was beautiful and immaculate. The little detail that was actually quite useful and made us all very comfortable was the fresh water shower after each dive. We got back to the dock feeling refreshed and not sticky and gross. Jill was responsive in following up with my initial inquiry and follow up confirmations etc. the dive sites were quite impressive. Overall an amazing experience and won’t be our last.

Lucky Fish Scuba is a top notch diving operation, very professional, and so much fun! Glenn & Jill made had everything prepared and ready when we arrived. Once we arrived at the dive spot, they were very helpful explaining where we would go, what we would see, and then proceeded to guide us through the dive. Since this was our first time diving in Key Largo, having a dive master guide us was very comforting. In between dives, they provided drinks and snacks. The boat is perfect for small groups and very comfy and it has a head if needed. In addition, Jill provided us with a short video of our dive a few days later. We loved it! This biz is a gem amongst all other dive operations in the Keys. You will not be disappointed booking here. We can’t wait to go back!

Lucky Fish Scuba is where you need to go in Key Largo! Both Glenn and Jill are extremely professional, courteous, and fun. They will keep you laughing throughout the trip while always being very attentive to your needs. The boat is super comfortable and they are able to make a customized plan according to what you want.

Inclement weather in Marathon Key did us a great favor. Our trip with Lucky Fish Scuba in Key Largo surpassed anything we could have imagined…
