Visitors from around the world swarm to Key West annually to indulge in its history, it’s world class cuisine, it’s array of activities, and most of all, its natural beauty. There is no better way to explore nature in this part of the world than by taking any number of Key West Eco Tours. Hope aboard a Skipjack boat, a vessel with a shallow hull designed to navigate Florida’s wild back country. These boats also used to double as a fishing boat so anglers could fish in both the shallows as well as the open water. The large sails on board zip you along the coast, and with an experienced nature guide on board, experience the wilderness of Key West. Because of the shallow nature of these boats, you will be taken to the best snorkeling spots where you can throw on some gear, slip into the water, and enjoy the calmest snorkeling conditions anywhere in the world. With crystal clear visibility for as far as the eye can see, Key West Eco tours always provide the best in undersea exploration. Be sure to take note of the mangroves curling themselves into the shores, and explore them further from the comfort of your very own kayak. Watch out for tropical schools of fish flitting around beneath your boat, and leaping Atlantic bottlenose dolphins in the distance. If you’re after something out of the ordinary, leave shore for an afternoon and experience a Key West eco tour.
