Tour description provided by Viator

Delight in close-up views of sharks and a variety of other marine life on this 2-hour boat tour from Key West. In an eco-friendly catamaran, travel through shallow waters past mangrove islands to a location a few miles from shore, observing dolphins, stingrays, barracudas and native birds along the way. Then have your camera ready as your pilot uses bait to attract lemon, nurse and other types of sharks to the side of the boat. Learn all about Key West wildlife and enjoy complimentary soda, juice and chips throughout this family-friendly tour.
After check-in, board your catamaran, Tiger Cat, which uses a Power-Pole system instead of traditional anchors to secure the boat and protect the sea grass and coral bottom. Travel through shallow water close to mangrove islands as you make your way about 4 miles (6.4 km) away from shore to the shark viewing site. Along the way, keep your eyes open for dolphin, sea turtles, stingrays, barracudas, tarpon and an array of native birds. Listen to your experienced pilot discuss the delicate ecosystem of this area and its abundance of wildlife. Enjoy complimentary water, soda, juice and chips — as well as the use of polarized sunglasses — during your trip. When you arrive at the shark destination, get ready for an unforgettable experience! Your pilot will use bait to draw a host of sharks that swim right up to the boat so you and your family can observe them in safety and comfort. See numerous lemon and nurse sharks, and watch out for bull, black tip and hammerhead sharks during nearly one hour of shark viewing. Capture dramatic photos you can't wait to share with family and friends.
