Climb onboard the catamaran Marquesa, a spacious 69-foot vessel with plenty of deck space, on the water at Key West’s historic seaport. Enjoy the sun and sea breezes on this journey into the crystal blue waters off the coast for an exciting adventure.

Upon arrival at the Great Florida Reef, the only living coral barrier reef in the United States and the third-largest in the world, assemble the snorkeling gear and listen to a quick safety briefing with some basic instruction from the experts. Then it’s into the tropical water for swimming and snorkeling. The shallow reef waters are perfect for easy snorkeling. See more than 600 species of colorful fish, vivid corals, and other sea life. Watch for a wide variety of fish—parrotfish, angelfish, porcupine fish—plus turtles, lobsters, and plenty more.

Back on board, take a seat and kick back with a refreshing beverage—beer, wine, or soft drinks are included on this cruise. And keep an eye out for a pod of dolphins, which could appear next to the boat at any time.

The crew and overall experience was wonderful. The boat ride out to the reef was very relaxing. Try and sit up top. We went in the morning and it was perfect. Not too hot for the excursion and we were back in time for lunch.

This was a great trip! The crew were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We actually enjoyed the boat ride even more than the snorkeling. We sat back by the captain, his wife was on board that day, and we learned so much about key west from them. I definitely recommend this trip and hope that you get this crew. Although he did tell us he will be moving back home in January so you better make those reservations quick.

Fun experience, but not what we thought
Grace_D

The crew was awesome, very funny and they know their stuff. The ride out there is about an hour both ways, so you'll get an hour in the water. It was a relatively smooth current, but was still really tough and we are decent swimmers. I recommend bringing your own goggles and snorkel that you have tried and are very comfortable with. Both of ours were constantly slipping off making it hard to attempt snorkeling. However, I most enjoyed just swimming in the ocean. You don't often get the opportunity to swim dead in the middle of the ocean. I wish we would have gotten to see some stuff in the water, but I would still do it again as we still had a great time.

We were able to see dolphins and sea turtles on our way to and from the reef, we had an amazing experience. The reef was beautiful and we saw tons of different types of fish. Some sting rays as well. One person said they saw a nurse shark hiding in the bottom of the reef
