Key West: Eco Safari Tour with Snorkeling

1. Key West: Eco Safari Tour with Snorkeling

Your experience begins as you arrive to the Cow Key Marina on Stock Island. Start by meeting your guide, who teaches you how to operate your own little pistol boat. Your guide then takes off, leading you through the back country of Key West. As you travel you may see ospreys - the only bird of prey to survive entirely on fish. There's also the opportunity to spot manatees feeding on mangroves, sharks swimming beneath you, and pelicans diving for their meals. You soon arrive to Mud Key, a beautiful little sandbar set in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Whilst there, wade in the soothing crystal waters, explore the island, or simply relax. Following your time exploring, begin your journey back to the marina through the winding mangrove maze.

Key West: SNUBA Experience

2. Key West: SNUBA Experience

SNUBA is safe family fun and simple to learn. No prior diving or snorkeling experience is required. All necessary equipment is provided and fitted for each guest by a team of professionals. The guests' experience is the number 1 priority, so comfort and safety in the water come first.  After a brief 15-20 orientation during the ride out to the dive site, you'll be ready for an underwater tour through the beautiful local marine ecosystems. SNUBA was created in Hawaii nearly 30 years ago to allow anyone without a scuba certification to fully enjoy the natural wonders that lie beneath the sea. SNUBA arrived in Key West in 1999 and has been continually serving locals as well as visitors on their quests into the underwater world.

What people are saying about Key West

This activity is hands down the best of many activities that we have done in the Keys! We were treated so well and Michael our guide was awesome with a great sense of humor! Honestly, I am having a hard time leaving a review because I don't want it to become so popular that it becomes difficult to find a reservation or unaffordable for us bur that would be selfish because the business is well deserved because it's such a great trip. You will get to see places that many don't get to see on other tours and without spoiling it for you; all I can say is go because you won't be disappointed!!! Thank you, The Allen Family
