Dolphin Watch and Snorkel Stop

Dolphin watching above and snorkeling below the waters of Key West. Is there anything sweeter?

As you leave the seaport on your power catamaran, you will head toward the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where Key West dolphins swim, play, and feed in their own natural habitat. The catamaran you're traveling on for this Key West excursion is part of an exciting national conservation program, so your knowledgeable and experienced crew will offer facts and research information as you responsibly view some of the more than 200 bottle-nose dolphins that call this area home. You will spend approximately 1 hour looking for dolphins.

After viewing the dolphins, you will head off to one of the many unique snorkel locations in the Key West National Wildlife Refuge, created in 1908 by Teddy Roosevelt. Based on the water conditions that day, your captain will find the best location to make the most of your snorkeling adventure.

These "backcountry" shallow waters are home to a variety of sponges, coral, and tropical fish. You will have approximately 1 hour to snorkel from the boat, during which your experienced crew will share their extensive knowledge of the amazing wildlife. For those new to snorkeling, the crew can teach even a novice how to snorkel and have a great time.

Reviewer: Kay
This was a relaxing way to spend a few hours. The dolphins were delightful and our boat crew were wonderful and knowledgeable. They educated as well as entertained. The water and weather were beautiful and boat nice and clean. The snorkeling was fun and great for all levels of ability. Could only have been better if we could swim with the Dolphins but understand that they need not be harassed and kept protected. It was a wonderful afternoon.

By the end of our three hours all participants had bonded. People came from a variety of other countries and states and represented a wide range of ages. We were the only ones who came from a cruise ship.

Reviewer: Monica
This was a great trip. We saw a lot of dolphins jumping in the water. Unfortunately, Florida was experiencing a cold snap so it was colder than was comfortable and we decided not to do snorkeling. The guides gave us a tour around the island, which was fun and made up for not snorkeling. This would have been a fantastic trip had the weather been better.
