What You Can Expect

Key West Reef Snorkeling Cruise

Key West Reef Snorkel Cruise

Climb on board 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 3.5-hour adventure.

Upon arrival at the 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 cruise concludes with a return trip to the Key West Seaport.

Informative crew, nice big boat. Highly recommend this tour. We had a perfect day with very little waves and lots of sunshine. The coral reef is beautiful. We saw lots of fish and two huge sting rays swimming along the bottom of the ocean. Very cool. Perfect for all ages. Gatorade and water are included and after your snorkel, beer and wine are included as well. Bring your own snacks, you will be hungry after you snorkel. A teeny tiny bag of chips is 2. Mixed drinks are available for purchase. We brought Pringles chips in the can. It was a perfect munchie and didn't take much room in our beach bag. Do not forget sunblock and put it on the bottom of your butt cheeks. Mine got sunburned.

The boat team was simply excellent, very nice and welcoming.
They took us to the reef, and what we saw was amazing : parrot fishes, lobsters and many I don't know the name...
Too short for me, but I was very happy of the open bar during our way back -

I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Staff were great, instructions were clear and concise. Great snapshot experience of snorkelling and the Key reefs.
Thank you.


3 star rating: Worth doing June 2016

It was frustrating just being yelled at by the guides on where to go. We were all confused. The other snorkeling tours that I've done, the guide went with us and showed us things. Otherwise, the guides were friendly and the beer was the best part!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2016

The boat ride was great, the crew was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, but the snorkeling was terrible. Not much to see the reef was dead.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2016

Not much to see under water. We were ankering too far from the shallow reef.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2017

The seas ere very choppy, the water murky, high swells, cold rain. There were few fish to look at. I got sea sick in the water which has never happened in my 60 years. This trip should have never happened. We should have been warned and given vouchers for a later trip in better conditions. The crew did as good a job as they could but Big Thumbs Down for management here.
