Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Climb onboard 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 adventure.

Upon arrival at the Great 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.

Great 3hr tour !

We did the 12:30 snorkel tour. Boat was not over packed, staff was very friendly and helpful. An enjoyable hour boat ride out to the reef and back. The visibility in the water was not as favorable I imagined, but it did not take away from the experience as we did see a bunch of tropical fish. (Snorkeling time in the water was about 45min)Also saw some dolphins on the way out. I would’ve stayed out on the tour longer if I could!

Great trip! Had beautiful sunny day on 2/25/21. Took morning tour...there were about 30(?) passengers. Plenty of room to sit comfortably at booths on deck. Then we’re allowed to roam on deck after getting out of harbor. Quick tutorial for beginners. We had our own gear, but they gave us safety vests and pool noodles, which really made floating easier!! Choppy, cool/cold water as we slid off boat into water. Have to swim about a hundred yards (?) to see the reef. Much more colorful when sun is out ( of course). Large fans of coral are pretty, good variety of fish. Very exhilarating!! Good time to experience reef before heading back in, tired but happy! Felt great being out in the beautiful open sea! 30 minute ride back to harbor, viewing Key West from different perspective. Drinks available. Crew was young and friendly. Restroom in decent condition. Perfectly timed trip. Why be in Key West and not try to swim/snorkel in the sea?? Price very reasonable for the experience!

Very good! The trip out was nice and calm, snorkeling was perfect waters, the waves weren't overbearing just a great day for it. Plenty of fish and even snorkeled into a few sharks that moved along once they noticed us. The crew was knowledgeable and very nice! Spotted dolphin on the way back to port and captain swung the boat around so all could see.

Crew and ship were awesome. Water was way too rough for snorkeling and visibility was low. It was a beautiful sunny day but once we got to the reef we noticed how choppy the water was. Younger kids did not enjoy it at all.
