Crystal Kayaks

Explore Key West's diverse and unique back country aboard completely clear two-person kayaks. This tour combines a back country kayaking tour with glass-bottom viewing, allowing you to see both the fascinating world of the mangrove islands above the water and teeming coral reef gardens located at the bottom of the sea.

The trip departs Key West aboard the 33-foot Beach Cat catamaran, transporting a total of 16 adventurous passengers out to the natural habitats of the mangrove islands and Key West's back country.

Upon arrival at the back country, guests climb aboard the 100% clear two-person kayaks (that are easily maneuvered by just one person) to go explore the area. Since these kayaks are completely clear, guests are able to see right through to the bottom of the shallow waters, catching glimpses of all kinds of unique marine species that make their home in the coral reef gardens of Key West.

In addition to kayaking, guests on can also use our complimentary snorkel gear to do some snorkeling in the clear, shallow waters of the back country. The area we go to is also close to a shallow shipwreck, which provides some excellent snorkeling and glass-bottom viewing opportunities.

These tours are designed in a "create your own adventure" style, giving guests flexibility in the kind of activities they want to participate in during the 3.5-hour excursion.
