Come experience our upscale Wild Dolphins, Snorkel and Sailing Adventure. Enjoy a smaller group for a better experience. The Echo2 (the only wild dolphin trip in Key West on a sailing catamaran) is certified to carry 28 persons, but as part of our quality control, this trip is kept at about half capacity! Take this exclusive tour and enjoy a wild and natural dolphin encounter, about an hour of snorkeling time and some great sailing too.
We sail the shallow tropical waters around the deserted islands off Key West and in the National Wildlife Refuge. A local pod of wild dolphins live right off the coast. Our daily trips allow you to witness wild adult dolphins caring for their babies, and pods of dolphins hunting with their echo location, feeding, playing, socializing and even mating on the surface. This sure is better than any captive dolphin facility. Plus, you're right on the water, in the dolphins natural neighborhood.
Curious dolphins often take time to socialize with the catamaran, jumping around the boat and swimming between the catamaran hulls. Our crew is made up of experienced guides that will explain the wild dolphins hunting and feeding habits, as well as other information about their behaviors. Mother Nature makes every trip unique, and every day is a new pallet of colors for nature to paint with.
We also stop to enjoy some of that famous Key West snorkeling. We love to snorkel our favorite shallow water shipwreck encrusted into a coral reef, but we also go to other wrecks, coral reefs and sponge garden environments, wherever the clearest, calmest and safest water is that day. Because we are a catamaran, we can get into the shallow waters that other big boats can't get to. We sometimes even make a stop on an awash, isolated sandbar, if mother nature allows. We know all the secret spots in the shallow waters off Key West and can take you to the places off the beaten path. We pride ourselves in providing you with the best experience on the water possible for the unique conditions of the day.
You can slip into the water and enjoy some great Key West snorkeling, or just relax and watch the sea life and snorkelers from our soft trampoline sun deck (Dry snorkeling!) or from our comfortable shaded seating area. Rinse off with a fresh water shower after a salty snorkel. Sit back and enjoy our premium tropical fruit tray, assorted snacks and cookies.
We also provide free ice cold soft drinks and bottled spring water, domestic and imported beers including Miller Lite, Corona, and Heineken and our two premium house wines, McWilliams Chardonnay and Shiraz. Then we cruise back to Key West while you relax and enjoy the moment that you can only experience on the tropical waters of the Florida Keys.
