Tour was as described. I snorkeled off of the shores of Key West. The waves were pretty rough but enjoyable nonetheless. The staff on the "Marquesa" was awesome. Lots of fun and very safety conscious. The only thing is the day was super long. I left at 6 am and returned at 9:30 pm. Be prepared for a long day. However, it was absolutely worth it.

Everything about this trip was wonderful, the long but comfortable drive over to Key West watching the scenery, Key West itself with the quaint galleries and shops with plenty of place to stop for a bite to eat and drink. The snorkelling trip was enjoyable. the best part of the trip was eating in the restaurant by the harbour.
If there is one thing to try it was the tuna, it was to die for, and lets not forget the trip just would not be worth it if you did not try the Key Lime Pie, there was even a gluten free version.
The trip back was just as nice with the views also.

Best vacation ever!!!! Two South African girls taking on Maimi for a week was the best idea in the world. We wanted to stay!

A great day that cost surprisingly little. Great weather, nice bus ride (long), a little time to eat lunch in Key West, then a trip in the catamaran. Snorkeling was fun and plenty of time available, then drinks and a great cruise back to port. Time to see the sunset, then back on the bus and let the driver deal with the drive back in the dark, while we watch a movie.

The highlight of my trip to Miami.

It was really nice not to worry about driving to key west and just appreciate the view from the bus. The snorkeling was great, with a very friendly crew. After an hour of watching beautiful fishes (and I even saw a shark! wich wasn't dangerous) adn coral in a cristal clear water, you can relax on the boat with a beer and a drink which were free. Watch out for sea sickness thought.

I purchased this trip for my husband and I anniversary. This was a nice adventure, the ocean scene was great and the staff was friendly. After our adventure they served beer and wine free of charge. The only thing that bothered me was that if you bought the trip directly it was much cheaper!! Other than that, NICE!!

The staff and service are excellent - firendly, professional and fun. However, the snorkel destination itself does not have much to offer in terms of coral. We saw some fish and a couple of starfish - that's all. Nothing like some of snorkel destinations like Phuket, Great Barrier Reef or the Andamans.

the trip from miami at bus, is very long. although the staff on board the catamaran is very friendly, at the sea was not much to see, other than what I had seen elsewhere. truth this tour did not fill my expectations. the next time I go to Key West will take more time there, to walk the streets and see the museums and sites of interest there and we did not have time to see. i know there are also some very nice beaches, which we did not see either.

Was good, but so far away.... we spend as much time in the bus then on the island.
If I would do that again, I'll spend at least 1 night over there.
The persones that didn't do snorkel seemed to be bored, for our case we didn't have time to do anything on the island after snorkel.

Key West was great and the sail was great but the snorkel was really cloudy and hard to see anything and was also rough water. Still fun but not what I expected it to be.

It appears they changed the trip on us and combined with another tour which meant we had extra time in key west and a longer day than we planned. The tour guide was the worst we have ever come across. She could not organise or help anyone when we arrived in Key West, we all had to help each other find where we were suppose to meet back. The boat trip was pleasant out to the reef but the tour guide on board told me we wouldn't be able to see anything as the weather was turning nasty. They moored the boat so far away from the reef if was a long swim to get there and they ocean was very choppy. We couldn't see anything as the water was too murky just like the guide said. I was bitten by a jelly fish which stung for a week so all in all not a memorable tour. Would I do it again no!

The ride was super long and tiring. I signed up to do snorkling thinking there would be enough time for sightseeing. I definately was wrong on that. As you can imagine. Snorkling experience depends highly on the weather. It was beautiful in Key West. I would prefer to be there at least 2 days so that I can enjoy the city. Too bad the stays were too short... Key West was amazing.

The tour is basically just a bus ride to Key West and back. The tour guide did not speak very good English or add much value to the trip, and all the guiding she did was telling a few sentences about the places we drove by. It was a 4 hour drive, and on the way to Key West we got one 10 minute breakfast break, and on the way back to Miami we didn't stop even once. The snorkel trip was great, but it was not told to us that if you do snorkeling, you won't have much time to do anything else in Key West.

The tour bus was horrible - no leg room and the guide wasnt the best.
Having said that - the snorkelling part of the trip was fantastic - all staff on the boat were great!!

We got picked up from the hotel at 6:10 in the morning and got back almost 12 midnight. It took a long time to pick up all the guests. And when we arrived Key West, it was already 12:30. Because we went for snorkeling, so we only had about 50 mins left for key west, which was really not enough. Feel waste so much time on the road. The snorkeling was so fun.

Very long journey from Miami, at least 3.5 hours one way. The snorkel was very very disappointing and we weren't impressed with it at all. Didn't see as much variety of fish as we were expecting looking at the pictures on their website. Actually you can hardly see some fish. there were plenty of jellyfish and you have to watch out for them to avoid burning. Definitely it's not good location for snorkel. I would not recommend
