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 is a very unique and something you must do while in Key West....very different from any other tours offered. The boat's crew was very knowledgeable and they definitely shared that knowledge with the guests in their narrative on the voayage. Recommended!

We loved the ride out to the reef. Although the water was choppy we got to see the reef and fish. The only draw back to the trip was that because of the waves some people on the boat got sick.

My husband and I took our son and wife for their first trip to Key West...we reserved the Glass Bottom Boat tour and do not regret it. It was an informative tour and the staff were friendly and helpful.
I will suggest to anyone who asks what to do in Key West. Thank You for a wonderful time.

The day we took this tour was rainy and cloudy, but the rain cleared up by the time we took the ride. While we did not see the beautiful sunset Key West is known for, we did see beautiful sky colors. The boat ride was really nice as it was a cool evening. We saw some dolphin action and the view of the reef through the glass bottom boat was really cool. Staff was fabulous and informative. Would definitely recommend this when in Key West. However, we visited Key West in late September, and the crowds were not heavy. There were only about 20 people on the cruise, which made viewing great! There was no overcrowding and everyone was able to see everything we saw!

We loved this tour--we got to see a lot of under sea life in a calm, air conditioned boat. Our guide was very well versed on the different types of under sea life. The sunset was gorgeous from the boat decks and there were snacks and drinks plus champagne at sunset. We are older and do not snorkel, so this was perfect for us--Would do it again!!!
