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.

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.

The tour was great but if you are expecting to see all the different kinds of sea life in those waters, you will be disappointed. The coral reef is alive with fish, but none of the big animals most of us want to see. We were lucky to see a turtle and an eel, but those are rare on this trip.

Slightly disappointed with the lack of sea life but that's the luck of the draw I spose. The boat trip was brilliant, very informative and the guides where helpful. We were given snacks and soft drinks which was a nice surprise. As for the sunset well that was truly amazing. Definite trip to go on!

The trip was wonderful, beautiful day and the water was clear.
However my reservation was not at the check in site and I had to pay at the gate again, even though I paid on my credit card through your site. They gave me a phone number for the office of the Fury Glass Bottom boat ride and they were wonderful. I e-mailed them my confirmation and they returned my gate payment without any problems.
