Welcome to Keys Boat Tours
& 8 Palms Accommodations

You Only Pay For The Boat Tour
The Private Guest Room Is Free!

Our hearts go out to those affected by hurricane Irma. It is difficult, no doubt, but we are strong, Keys Strong. The landscape and seascape have changed some but we intend a speedy recovery. Key West will be ready soon, and the Lower Keys will be ready in time for winter season.
Our home, furnishings, appliances and vehicles have been destroyed. In short, we've had a major set back, but we intend to rebuild in coming months. We know we can. That said, we could use your support. But, we want to give something too.
Island Design would like to help Keys businesses and individuals get back on their feet by offering our services at half price.
Our boat tour business, Keys Boat Tours will open sooner than later and even offer free kayak and paddleboard outings (from our Sunshine Key location MM 39) through November.
For those of you who wonder if you should visit the Keys this winter season - yes! Please don't hesitate to book your reservation now.
If you care to donate, we would appreciate it very much, even $25 means a lot. Visit our YouCaring Fund. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
Locally, the storm has brought locals closer together. Sure, it will be harder for some, but we will help those who need us too.
Thank you for supporting the FL Keys. It means a lot - everything!
