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.

Poor weather and crew service. Wish they can handle all kinds of vacationers on their boat, especially when weather was so rough. They probably should have canceled it.

Had a great time on the boat! The crew was amazing and Dani was very funny explaining the rules and safety advice. We went in June and the water was pretty rough and a bit murky. Snorkeling was more of a sporting activity than leisurely looking at the reef and fish but the weather can't be controlled. Still had a great time!!

It was a nice boat ride to and from. Snorkeling was a blast. Swim more to your right of everyone as we saw a lot of fish in deeper water as well as a reef shark that would appear every so often to say hi to everyone. Highly recommend this excursion.

The Crew was not honest about the water conditions until after the boat had Left the dock. Because of swells our original destination the reef was change to another location which was 3 feet deep and absolutely Nothing to See as Well As the visibility being 3 feet. The trip should have been cancelled

Sad reefs

Our tour guides were great. Too many people, though, and sadly the reefs are being destroyed. Suntan lotions, hair products, deodorants... humans are killing the reefs. You’ll see tropical fish... and dead white coral. If you go, wear safe suntan lotion and try not to have anything else on your body.
