Tour description provided by Viator

While you're in port in Key West, spend a beautiful Florida day out in the clear, blue waters on a snorkeling tour and dolphin-spotting shore excursion. Enjoy sailing on a catamaran, spot wild dolphins playing and swimming along the boat, and snorkel over shipwrecks and coral reefs. The spacious catamaran offers plenty of room to relax, feel the sea breeze in your hair, enjoy light snacks and drinks, and have fun on the sparkling waters of Key West.

Spend a day in the Florida sun, cruising through the perfect turquoise waters that surround Key West on the Echo, a spacious catamaran. When your cruise ship docks in port in Key West, make your way to the historic Key West Sea Port, about a 15-minute walk from the cruise port. Walk along the Harborwalk, which goes around the water’s edge and leads straight to the Echo’s dock, behind Turtle Kraals restaurant. Board the Echo and begin your shore excursion at sea!

The first stop of your Shipwreck Snorkel and Wild Dolphin Encounter cruise is the wild dolphin playground, where you’ll see dolphins swimming, feeding, jumping, courting each other, playing and, if you’re lucky, caring for their babies. Keep your eyes peeled over the side of the Echo – the dolphins love to swim right alongside the boat.

Then it’s on to snorkeling. You’ll be taken to a spot with the day’s calmest, clearest conditions, and you’ll receive sanitized snorkeling equipment and excellent snorkeling instructions. If the conditions are right, you’ll stop at a nearby shallow-water shipwreck, which has been encrusted over the years by a coral reef. Hop in for a snorkel or swim in clear tropical water, which is home to more than 600 species of colorful fish, coral and other sea life.

After snorkeling, replenish with a tropical fruit tray, snacks, soft drinks, ice-cold beer and wine (for guests 21 and over) during the relaxing cruise back to Key West – all complimentary!
