When visiting the Florida Keys most locals will tell you that in order to really experience the Florida Keys you have to be on or beneath the water. Serene, tranquil, and unspoiled, imagine the Keys as they used to be. Our 4-hour Adventure and Snorkel Cruise will take you back in time, to a place of Spanish pirates, Indian warriors, and English settlers.
What better way to kick back and relax on your vacation than taking a small-group boat tour and let an experienced captain (USCG certified) take you to a coral reef and guide you around the beautiful islands of Islamorada. The Captain will explain the history and ecology of this beautiful area as well as identify many types of marine life, heightening your awareness of our environment and all the species that share it. Snorkeling time is included so you may explore the tranquil shallow water reef system.
The 30.4ft Parker boat is spacious, comfortable and perfect for relaxing, snorkeling, and cruising around the islands. A shaded Bimini top covers the entire center of the boat and offers a welcome relief from the hot Florida sun. There is plenty of cushioned seating with back support at the front and center.
Theater of the sea provides a large cooler with ice to keep your drinks and snacks chilled. The trip starts by cruising out to the only living coral reef system in North America, after a short hop of 30 minutes and taking the day's conditions into account, the captain will steer the boat to the best spots.
Here, you will have the chance to enter the turquoise waters and explore the magnificent sea gardens. The reef is home to more than 50 species of coral and almost 500 species of fish. Snorkel gear is provided on the boat.
After snorkeling, relax and enjoy the sightseeing portion of your tour. The fabulous views and the cooling breeze make this the perfect year round Islamorada activity.
