Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Climb onboard the catamaran Marquesa, a spacious 69-foot vessel with plenty of deck space, on the water at Key West’s historic seaport. Enjoy the sun and sea breezes on this journey into the crystal blue waters off the coast for an exciting adventure.

Upon arrival at the Great Florida Reef, the only living coral barrier reef in the United States and the third-largest in the world, assemble the snorkeling gear and listen to a quick safety briefing with some basic instruction from the experts. Then it’s into the tropical water for swimming and snorkeling. The shallow reef waters are perfect for easy snorkeling. See more than 600 species of colorful fish, vivid corals, and other sea life. Watch for a wide variety of fish—parrotfish, angelfish, porcupine fish—plus turtles, lobsters, and plenty more.

Back on board, take a seat and kick back with a refreshing beverage—beer, wine, or soft drinks are included on this cruise. And keep an eye out for a pod of dolphins, which could appear next to the boat at any time.

The cruise concludes with a return trip to the Key West Seaport.

Well worth the money

It would have been 5 but they didn’t sail just motor out and back. The crew was great. The boat was awesome. Nothing like the way a big catamaran cuts through the water. On top of snorkeling we saw a small pod of dolphins and a couple sea turtles. And free beer and wine on the return trip. The trip is well worth the money.

Good time on the reef
Leanne_J
, Apr 2021
The reef had a good variety of marine life on it. The wind was up but it was easy to relax and go with the waves while exploring the reef. There were more people than I would have liked on the catamaran during COVID. All wore masks to board and then you could spread out fairly well.

Chaos, too many people, workers annoyed

Way to many people. The workers were annoyed. Everyone got on excited but by the time we got our gear and were ready to snorkel there was a lot of panic and chaos both getting in to snorkel and getting out. We ended up staying on the boat because we didn't want to get yelled at.

Great Crew Made the Day!
Christine_F
, Apr 2021
The crew was great! They were funny, helpful and helped create a fun experience. The snorkeling was just okay. I’m not sure if it’s because we went on the afternoon trip or if the water was just cloudy from all the people snorkeling, but the clarity wasn’t amazing. A lot of people on this trip, so it’s not a personalized experience but a good for the price, just expect a nice boat ride and an average snorkeling experience.
