Overview
Enjoy an afternoon of swimming and snorkeling on this 3.5-hour cruise off the coast of Key West. Spend a relaxing afternoon on a 69-foot catamaran headed to North America's only living coral barrier reef for the adventure of a lifetime. Pass some of Key West’s top attractions on the way, then dive right in to see more than 600 species of colorful fish, coral and other sea life. This cruise includes professional snorkeling gear and instruction plus beer, wine and soft drinks.
What to Expect
Climb on board the catamaran Marquesa, a spacious 69-foot vessel with plenty of deck space, on the water at Key West’s historic seaport. Enjoy the sun and sea breezes on this journey into the crystal blue waters off the coast for an exciting 3.5-hour adventure.

Upon arrival at the Florida Reef, the only living coral barrier reef in the United States and the third largest in the world, assemble the snorkeling gear and listen to a quick safety briefing with some basic instruction from the experts. Then it’s into the tropical water for swimming and snorkeling. The shallow reef waters are perfect for easy snorkeling. See more than 600 species of colorful fish, vivid corals and other sea life. Watch for a wide variety of fish — parrotfish, angelfish, porcupine fish — plus turtles, lobsters and plenty more.

Back on board, take a seat and kick back with a refreshing beverage — beer, wine or soft drinks are included on this cruise. And keep an eye out for a pod of dolphins, which could appear next to the boat at any time.

The cruise concludes with a return trip to the Key West Seaport.

First off, I just want to say how amazing the staff was. They knew what they were talking about and kept reiterating everything to keep us safe. They did a step-by-step direction on what we would do. The waves were very choppy unfortunately but I...More

Snorkel trip should have been cancelled.

The wind was from the northeast and pretty strong. It stirred up the bottom resulting in less than 5 foot visibility. The seas were too high to get close to the reef so even the brave-hearted could only dive down to a sandy bottom with...More

Walking distance...……..as a matter of fact as you depart on the boat you'll likely maneuver around the cruise ship if I recall.
