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.

I asked my best friend to marry me n she said yes on top of the boat at the reef. It was an amazing setting for the moment. The crew and experience was awesome as well.

The boat crew were very friendly, nice and informative. We had a great time snorkeling the reef. It was definitely something I will remember forever and worth doing. They gave us free beer after we got back on the boat. It was a great experience and a good buy. Something I learned is either blow up your vest or get the pool noddle they offer to slip through the vest because it makes floating much easier if you have to clear your goggles or fix your gear.

Boat ride And crew were great. Waves were very choppy and mask and snorkel were not the greatest. We did see reef sharks but it was not much time in the morning water.

My twin 11 year olds boys and I had an absolute blast! I was impressed with Capt. Jim and his crew! They were fun, helpful and willing to make you feel incredibly comfortable. Before taking off Capt. Jim advised everyone of the chopping conditions as well as poor visibility. He offered anyone a refund or opportunity to reschedule. It was a hot day but they offered plenty of water on the way to the reef. I was particularly fond of the music playing overhead. I asked Capt. Jim who it belonged to and it was his playlist. Naturally, I found it additionally amusing that we graduated the same year from high school. Which made sense to the musical genre! This was our first time scuba diving and we are not the best swimmers. The crew was very helpful and informative. Even under the conditions we felt safe, were able to see quite a bit of the reef and had a fantastic time! One of my boys is EXTREMELY scared of the unknown in the ocean yet STILL went in the water for 1/2 the time. That in itself should be a testament of how comfortable they make you feel. I was so proud! One of the other divers was able to get great underwater footage of a huge sea turtle! Some were able to see a couple of sharks and some sea life. The ride back was fantastic with an open bar, great music and cool breeze made for a perfect addition to the trip. We were extremely impressed and would HIGHLY recommend this trip!

Let me just say this was not what I expected. I missed the part of the description where I had to jump off a boat in the middle of the ocean. My husband and I came for our anniversary and Vaughn mad sure I was comfortable. He was my biggest cheerleader! I can't remember the other 2 crew members names but they were awesome as well. They really made our anniversary one to remember. I'm going to take some swim lessons so I can actually really enjoy the experience next time. Im glad I went and stepped out of my comfort zone.
