Tour description provided by Viator

Spend a beautiful Florida day out in the clear, blue waters on a snorkeling and dolphin-watching sailing excursion. Enjoy sailing on a roomy catamaran that books only to 14 passengers, spot wild dolphins hunting and playing with their babies, and snorkel shallow water coral reefs, wreck sights or the wildlife refuge - wherever the best conditions are from Mother Nature that day. 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 (or shade), cruising through the perfect turquoise waters that surround Key West on the Echo, a spacious catamaran. Make your way to the historic Key West Seaport, in the center of old town. 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 Shallow-water 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 a shallow snorkeling stop, or just relax onboard in the shade with a cool drink. 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. The conditions will decide if you’ll stop at a nearby shallow-water wreck site, coral reef or sheltered wildlife refuge. Hop in for a snorkel 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, crunchy snacks, soft drinks, ice-cold beer and wine (for guests 21 and over) during the relaxing cruise back to Key West – all complimentary! The Captain will muster as much sailing out of the wind as possible that day, but twin engines will insure our timely return.
