Florida has the longest stretch of coral reef in the continental U.S., and the clear water makes it easily possible to explore this beautiful ecosystem. The Great Florida Reef is also the only barrier coral reef in the continental United States, and is ranked third largest reef system in the world. This coral reef is home to over 1,500 different marine wildlife species. You can consider a trip snorkeling or snuba to the reef as taking a walk through history, since the reef has been around for somewhere around 5,000 and 7,000 years old. We offer a variety of snorkel tours and even offer a new and futuristic way of exploring beneath the ocean’s surface while breathing comfortably, called Snuba. Snuba is a cross between scuba diving and snorkeling, and is a great new way to see the waters surrounding Key West.
If you’re looking to stay dry, but still be able to absorb all the underwater marine life, you should take a look at the Pride Of Key West, a family friendly glass bottom boat tour.
Dry Tortugas National Park
Key West is the southernmost point you can go in the continental United States, and is also the launch point to visit the Dry Tortugas National Park for a day. This park is one of the most remote parks in the world, but is well worth the trip out to see. The Dry Tortugas has been said to have some of the best snorkeling and camping (if weather conditions permit, of course) in the world, and people come from all over the world to experience it. The catch with the Dry Tortugas National Park is that you can only visit it by booking a boat or seaplane, which we offer bookings of both by. Both of these tours assist guests in any manner, including providing a snorkel and mask, and lunch.
This island has more to offer as well, especially in history. So if you love being outdoors, lounging on a beach, and taking a walk through history, than this tour is perfect for you. Our advice is to book a charter as soon as you book your vacation, because they sell out fast, and they are subject to availability.
