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.

We took our 3 and 6 year old with us. We got to see the dolphins, went snorkeling, and then they drove around for a bit at the end. They provided soft drinks and a few alcoholic beverages when we were headed back. They were very knowledgeable and kind. We would recommend it.

Reviewer: Lexie Gutbrod
Our family of 4 was extremely pleased with this excursion. The crew was amazing. We were able to see not only dolphins but an interaction between a group of sharks and the dolphins. The effort the crew made to ensure that we had an excellent experience was appreciated by all. They were knowledgeable as well as personable.
