Key West is the jump off point for an endless number of activities, and for anyone who has a love affair with the sea, and abundance of life that it holds, this is the place to be. Out of every activity on offer in the Florida Keys, if you are fortunate enough to have a close-up dolphin experience, you are guaranteed to head back home with a bright smile emblazoned across your face, and a warm heart. Dolphins have long been a beloved symbol of Key West, and around the world, they are known to be the clowns of the sea world. While dolphin sightings are commonplace of the coast of Key West, why just admire them from afar when you can enjoy them up close? Visitors can have a Key West dolphin experience just about any day of the week, it just requires a little pre-planning. The Key West Dolphin Tours and Encounter program gives guests the opportunity to interact with wild dolphins in their own habitat. Interact with them in the shallow waters of a pristine marine sanctuary. Spend the afternoon meandering along the only living coral reef off the coast of the continental United States. Be sure to bring your underwater camera to capture the fury of tropical fish that are going to pass by your snorkeling mask!
