Know More about this tour

Spend a day in the Florida sun (or shade), cruising through the perfect turquoise waters that surround Key West on the Echo, a spacious catamaran. When your cruise ship docks in port in Key West, make your way to the historic Key West Seaport, about a 15-minute stroll from the cruise port. Walk along the HarborWalk, which goes around the waters edge and leads straight to the Echos dock, behind Turtle Kraals restaurant. Board the Echo and begin your shore excursion at sea!

The first stop of your Shallow-water Snorkel and Wild Dolphin Encounter cruise is the wild dolphin playground, where youll see dolphins swimming, feeding, jumping, courting each other, playing and, if youre lucky, caring for their babies. Keep your eyes peeled over the side of the Echo the dolphins love to swim right alongside the boat.

Then its on to a shallow snorkeling stop, or just relax onboard in the shade with a cool drink. Youll be taken to a spot with the days calmest, clearest conditions, and youll receive sanitized snorkeling equipment and excellent snorkeling instructions. The conditions will decide if youll stop at a nearby shallow-water wreck site, coral reef or sheltered wildlife refuge. Hop in for a snorkel in clear tropical water, which is home to more than 600 species of colorful fish, coral and other sea life.

After snorkeling, replenish with a tropical fruit tray, crunchy snacks, soft drinks, ice-cold beer and wine (for guests 21 and over) during the relaxing cruise back to Key West all complimentary! The Captain will muster as much sailing out of the wind as possible that day, but twin engines will insure our timely return.

    Amazing! Professional, accommodating. Just 3 couples so it was so intimate and peaceful. Snorkeling was impressive too! More than what I expected!
