Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Climb onboard 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 adventure.

Upon arrival at the Great 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.

Sad reefs

Our tour guides were great. Too many people, though, and sadly the reefs are being destroyed. Suntan lotions, hair products, deodorants... humans are killing the reefs. You’ll see tropical fish... and dead white coral. If you go, wear safe suntan lotion and try not to have anything else on your body.

Lovely but...

It was a lovely trip to and from the reef. I wish we had parked a little closer to the reef so we could have seen some tropical fish . My granddaughter did swim to it, which was really quite a swim and disconcerting to the crew. She did see what the rest of us hoped to see.

Awesome crew, very friendly. Would recommend and use this company again. All the staff took time to talk to everyone and even let my kids help tie off the boat when we returned to the dock

I wish I had memorable times to share; however, they canceled our snorkeling excursion 5 minutes before check-in. We understand we cannot control the weather, but it would have been nice if the lines of communication were clearer. We had rented a car for the day, and we were not able to reschedule for another day.
