Scuba divers and snorkelers aren’t the only ones who get to see the beautiful Florida Reef in all its splendor. Thanks to this glass-bottom catamaran, there’s a very clear 'window to the reef' for guests on this cruise.

Just a few miles seaward of the Florida Keys is North America's only living coral barrier reef and the third-largest coral barrier reef system in the world. It’s also one of the most biologically diverse marine eco-systems. Travel directly over the top of it and see more than 600 species of tropical fish, sharks, lobsters, crabs, sea turtles, sea rays, snails, jellyfish and other sea life, including elkhorn and brain coral.

The boat, which is designed to allow the best viewing with the least amount of stress to the reef, offers a seated sun deck with a panoramic view of the water, as well as an enclosed, air-conditioned cabin with restrooms and a snack bar.

Upgrade to the sunset cruise to watch the sun settle into the Gulf of Mexico while enjoying a glass of Champagne or a soft drink.

Over priced and didn't see anything. We were coming from Boca Raton and left at 7am to Make our 12pm appointment, but traffic was really bad and called ahead to see if they could accommodate us or move us to the 2pm since we were going to be 10 mins late and they could not and it was non refundable. So, we didn't go and lost our money. Not a very good experience.

This place is a rip off. I purchased three tickets one in our party could not make it the ticket lady resold my third ticket without my knowledge. When I tried to give it to an army veteran in his 80’s she told me she sold the ticket and told me I would have to deal with TripAdvisor to get a refund.
