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. Make your way to the historic Key West Seaport, in the center of old town. 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.

    Awesome crew. Jake and Stormy were wo derdul. We had some cloud cover come in ut the were able to find four dolphin and snorkleing was still pretty clear even with the overcast skis. Enjoyed the boat ride and all the fun. Would go again.

    It's been a while since I last swum so when I was nearly drown in a 2-meter-steep area, the indifference the crew demonstrated and their sluggishness to throw me a life buoy made me wonder what the heck was in their mind then.

    The ship reck is really not a ship but just parts of it in shallow water. The dolphins were amazing !

    Choppy seas prevented us from snorkeling at the shipwreck, but we saw a LOT of dolphins!! great trip with a great crew, Captain Brad and Melanie are the best!!

    Viator sells this as a shipwreck snorkel and dolphin encounter, but when we showed up it was not a shipwreck snorkel. Nothing against the actual excursion, which was great, but we felt misled

    Captain and the skipper did a great job on this snorkeling trip. No dolphins or sailing this time but those are the uncontrollable elements. Catamaran was smaller than expected and 14 passengers on board (their max) would not be pleasurable.

    Boat owner? Was rude after 5pm when I called to confirm per a last minute email but the Crew was amazing. Dive spot was kind of disappointing. Assumed it was an actual ship not a couple boards underwater. We did see sharks and a turtle though which completely made up for it. If you're looking for coral and fish you should probably do a reef trip.

    This tour was amazing!

    We didn and #39;t like it at all. The guys were really friendly and did their best but of you have been snorkeling once in The reden Sea you find the aerea around Key West boring. And honestly, this was mit a ship wreck that was a Little dingi put in the sea. This Trip was and #39;t worth the money.

    The trip was great! However, we were unable to see the Dolphins because they were sleeping. They were just rolling around in the water. It was neat to see them, but we couldn't get close or see much. Then, we only got about 20 minutes to snorkel. It is a 4 hour trip but at least 3 hours of it you spend on the boat. There is minimal time looking at Dolphins and minimal time snorkeling. The captain and deckhand were awesome and super helpful! I had a great trip, I just wish I would have known that the majority of the day was spent on the boat and not actually doing any activities.
