What You Can Expect

Shipwreck Snorkel and Wild Dolphin Encounter

Shipwreck Snorkel and Wild Dolphin Encounter

Spend a day in the Florida sun, cruising through the perfect turquoise waters that surround Key West on the Echo, a spacious catamaran. You’ll board the Echo at the historic Key West Sea Port, downtown at the Key West Bight in Old Key West. Walk along the Harborwalk, which goes around the water’s edge and leads straight to the Echo’s dock, behind Turtle Kraals restaurant.

The first stop of your Shipwreck Snorkel and Wild Dolphin Encounter cruise is the wild dolphin playground, where you’ll see dolphins swimming, feeding, jumping, courting each other, playing and, if you’re lucky, caring for their babies. Keep your eyes peeled over the side of the Echo – the dolphins love to swim right alongside the boat.

Then it’s on to snorkeling. You’ll be taken to a spot with the day’s calmest, clearest conditions, and you’ll receive sanitized snorkeling equipment and excellent snorkeling instructions. If the conditions are right, you’ll stop at a nearby shallow-water shipwreck, which has been encrusted over the years by a coral reef. Hop in for a snorkel or swim in clear tropical water, which is home to more than 600 species of colorful fish, coral and other sea life.

After snorkeling, replenish with a tropical fruit tray, snacks, soft drinks, ice-cold beer and wine (for guests 21-and-over) during the relaxing cruise back to Key West – all complimentary!

Great sailing! I saw several dolphins swimming along the boat. The snorkeling was really good, too. Tess and Eddie were great on the boat!

This was the highlight for our month long road trip across the US. I'll always remember the boat ride and the swimming with all the fish. The boat crew was so nice. I really recommend this.

To celebrate our 47th Anniversary, my wife and I scheduled our Catamaran Echo adventure under the guidance and care of Captain Noah and Tess on March 10, 2013 at 1:30 pm. They were a great team who made the our afternoon the best experience of our stay in Key West. We were fortunate to have a sunny, brisk day with an excellent wind for sailing. Captain Noah and Tess' attention to detail, knowledge of the reefs, and smart tips for snorkeling exceeded our expectations to redefined "upscale service". We spotted several juvenile wild dolphons jumping close to shore and spotted a mature dolphin just off the bow enroute to the reef chosen for snorkeling. Water temp although in the low 70"s was perfect for snorkeling. My wife was less than 15 feet from a passing turtle ... and while snorkeling we were surrounded by schools of small yellow tail and angel fish curiously following our wake above the sponge fields. We plan to return to Key West and will definitely schedule another adventure with Catamaran Echo. Bring your camera and an your towels .. all other gear is provided and fitted for an experience of a lifetime.

Saw dolphins and had a great time. Crew was great. Little cool for me to snorkel but otherwise, was all I expected.

This was a great trip. The customer service at both Viator and the company that runs the trip was superb. The tour itself was interesting, fun, and very satisfying. Highly recommended.

Excellent. What a great afternoon we had relaxing onboard and viewing dolphins in their natural habitat. This boat takes smaller groups so perfect if you don't like overcrowded boats. The staff were very friendly and informative staff with lots of drinks and refreshments available throughout the afternoon. The kids loved laying on the net/trampoline over the water at the front of the boat and being splashed by the waves as we travelled back to land which I believe is the only tour boat in Key West that has this. Well worth the trip to Key West.

This was a refreshing adventure and vacation that could not have gone any better. The crew has the most amazing hospitality. I recommend that you book with them. Perfect for someone who likes a smaller and more personal get away over an overcrowded boat. Worth every penny!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2008

Water was cold but had a warm welcome and excellent service from the crew. Staff made us comfortable right off, knew their business and provided a memorable experience. Most rewarding investment I have made this year.
