Meet Matt and Jennifer Parramore
We understand that life moves fast and vacations are priceless.
Together, we bring years of experience as well as genuine enthusiasm for ensuring our customers leave with memories that will live on for years to come.
Prior moving to the Florida Keys permanently in 2018, we owned a similar charter business in the Florida Panhandle. With years of experience under our belt we decided it was time to embark on an adventure and bring our knowledge to an area that is close to our hearts.
Matt became a captain in 2013 and instantly became overjoyed with giving customers and families one on one instruction and lessons on sea life in the water. Growing up, his father was a Florida fish and wildlife officer and greatly influenced his love for the outdoors and all things related to boating and fishing.
Jennifer became a captain in 2021. After many years of working behind the scenes and filling the role of deckhand she decided she was ready to take on the role of captain. She too has a strong family background of life on the water and has a passion for showing customers all that the Florida Keys eco-system has to offer.
Saltwater Seafari offers Looe Key Reef snorkeling tours, snorkeling charters, Big Pine Key snorkeling trips, and more across the Florida Keys. Our customers love our trips! Read reviews from our Saltwater Seafari adventurers
“Jennifer and Matt really made our family trip to the Keys a wonderfully memorable experience. They went above and beyond to show us more than we could have imagined was possible to experience in one day of reef snorkeling and island hopping. And they topped it all off by finding a half-dozen-sized pod of dolphins that circled us while jumping and playing as the sun set.
We can’t thank them enough for making it a happy, safe day for our young family. Jennifer also took many incredible professional-quality photos that she shared with us to document the day. We highly recommend Saltwater Seafari Tours.” – Cody D.
