Full description
Explore dramatic underwater vistas generally reserved for scuba divers from a glass-bottom boat. A wide variety of fish and other sea creatures await you as you gaze into the underwater world of Key West. In addition, you will have the opportunity to see North America’s only living coral reef, one of the most biologically diverse marine eco-systems in the world. Majestic elkhorn and impressive brain coral, sturdy in appearance yet fragile and vulnerable, stand sentry for the more than 300 species of fish that complete the colorful and intriguing seascape. Along the trip, an experienced captain and crew will provide a unique and informative eco-tour and point out some of the most interesting marine life that inhabit the waters of this incredible island. The special glass, a “window to the reef”, provides continuous viewing for all passengers. The Glass Bottom Boat offers a seated sun deck and air-conditioned, enclosed viewing area as well as restrooms and a snack bar. The catamaran’s twin hull design allows for maximum stability and much less rocking motion than traditional V-hull designs. The boat is designed to allow maximum viewing with minimum stress to the delicate reef.

Noisy, hot, seasick

The air conditioning barely worked on this noisy and crowded trip. Once "parked" at the reef people were becoming seasick one by one. Don't go on this venture if you get bored or the slightest bit of motion sickness.
