Reef and Ritas

A few miles seaward of the Florida Keys, in the warm, clear and shallow waters of the Atlantic Ocean, is the world's third-largest barrier reef (after the Great Barrier Reef and Belize Barrier Reef), and the only living reef in North America. And you'll get to snorkel it!

The Florida Reef (also known as the Great Florida Reef and Florida Keys Reef Tract) is about 4 miles wide and extends 170 miles from Fowey Rocks. Almost 1,400 species of marine plants and animals, including more than 40 species of stony corals and 500 species of fish, live on the Florida Reef.

On this Key West cruise excursion, you'll be aboard a 65-foot power catamaran, which offers speed and stability to get you to the snorkeling quickly so you can get in the water sooner.

Before entering the water, the friendly and professional crew will be on hand to assist and instruct you. Once you descend "the stairway to the sea," you will discover the wonders of the undersea with pristine coral reefs and an abundance of marine life, including tropical species found no place else on earth.

Upon completion of your snorkeling adventure, complimentary Margaritas, ice cold beer, and wine will be served as you make your way back to port. Don't miss out on this amazing Key West Snorkeling experience.

4 StarsSurprised by the sizeSeptember 07, 2017

Reviewer: Mary Anne Turnbull
We booked this as a small group tour (which should mean 2-20 people) and were shocked to see almost 200 people loading onto 2 catamarans. We were in the "smaller" group of 82. I mentioned that we were supposed to be on a small tour and they said there was no way. The staff were great, and the tour was fine, but not at all what we booked.

Reviewer: Love to cruise
The guides were very knowledgable and took time to explain safety and how to protect the reef, while still having fun. The ride was nice and relaxing. We got to see a lot of the reef. The staff and crew were very nice and helpful. We would go on this excursion again.

Reviewer: Sea and Sun Mama
We loved this trip. We are experienced snorkelers but out of shape. Our 11 year old daughter loved every moment. I think it would be tough if this is your first time snorkeling. You can walk down steps but the water was deep. That was fine for us and easy. We were almost the last ones to get back in the boat and that is when we saw a bull shark. Husband and daughter thought that was the best thing EVER. Drinks on the return trip to the dock were free flowing. Good times!

Reviewer: Denise
I snorkeled these reefs about 8 years ago and at that time, we were told they were dying and the kids that were with us would not be able to see this when they were our age (45)because the reefs would be dead. These are the 3rd largest in the world and they are trying to preserve them. Everone on this trip was amazed at how awesome this was to swim with the fish. The only negative thing was that I stayed out too long and was exhausted. I just knew I would never be back and I wanted it to last just a little bit longer.
