What You Can Expect

Key West Glass-Bottom Boat Tour with Sunset Option

Key West Glass-Bottom Boat Tour with Sunset Option

Scuba divers and snorkelers aren’t the only ones who get to see the beautiful Florida Reef in all its splendor. Thanks to this glass-bottom catamaran, there’s a very clear 'window to the reef' for guests on this 2-hour cruise.

Just a few miles seaward of the Florida Keys is North America's only living coral barrier reef and the third-largest coral barrier reef system in the world. It’s also one of the most biologically diverse marine eco-systems. Travel directly over the top of it and see more than 600 species of tropical fish, sharks, lobsters, crabs, sea turtles, sea rays, snails, jellyfish and other sea life, including elkhorn and brain coral.

The boat, which is designed to allow the best viewing with the least amount of stress to the reef, offers a seated sun deck with a panoramic view of the water, as well as an enclosed, air-conditioned cabin with restrooms and a snack bar.

Upgrade to the sunset cruise to watch the sun settle into the Gulf of Mexico while enjoying a glass of Champagne or a soft drink.

The Tour was great, we had a great time viewing the coral reef and to see many species of
tropical fish and sea turtles. Viewing the sunset was just spectacular from the top deck of the Catamaran. The crew was wonderful, very informative and answered all questions. We had a great time and highly recommend booking a cruise on the Glass-Bottom Boat.

This tour was amazing and knowledgeable. My children were excited to see a big boat that has a see-through bottom that you can see the fish . They love looking at the turtles in the fish and then when they went outside on the top deck it was like Christmas. My husband really love the sunset.

The tour was great. The only thing is that the time for the cruise was changed to 1/2 hour later and we were not notified, it would of been nice so we could of done something more with the extra time. The guides were very funny and informative.
