Envision yourself swimming freely among the vibrant fish of the Florida Keys during a 3.5-hour Key West snorkeling tour. This tranquil catamaran cruise provides easy snorkeling among coral reefs and includes beverages. You may even spot a pod of dolphins or sea turtles drifting by.
Meet your crew at Key West’s Historic Seaport, and sail away aboard the Marquesa, a 69-foot (21 meter) catamaran with sprawling deck space for soaking up the sun and sea breeze while you cruise toward the Great Florida Reef, one of the most beautiful reefs in Key West. Pay close attention as professional crew members provide a safety briefing and snorkeling overview. When you reach the reef, hop into the translucent waters with provided snorkeling gear to discover an underwater world of exotic fish and neon coral. As you follow the many schools of fish around, keep your eyes peeled for copper sweepers darting to and from rocks. If you're curious to know what exactly you're seeing, ask the crew to share their expert knowledge or request a handy fish-identification card. After exploring the reef, climb back on deck and wet your whistle with provided beverages including wine, ice-cold beer and filtered water. Perhaps indulge a bit further with your favorite cocktail at the onboard cash bar, and then sit back and relax, keeping watch for a pod of dolphins who might swim along the boat. Your tour ends with return to the marina.
