Come aboard the Dolphin Watch & Snorkel Cruise Key West for an aquatic journey to observe the grace and beauty of our resident Key West dolphins.
Take our beautiful sailing catamaran on an adventure into the shimmering turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. As we make our way out to sea, our experienced crew and captain will share some fascinating and fun facts about the estimated 200 Key West dolphins. Together, we'll responsibly watch dolphins as they swim, play, feed and do what comes naturally. Bottlenose dolphins are a wonder to behold and a memory you'll treasure for a lifetime.
The tour operator is a part of "Dolphin SMART", a program that protects and promotes the responsible observance of dolphins. The program was put together by many conservation agencies including NOAA's National Marine Sanctuary, National Marine Fisheries Service, as well as the Dolphin Ecology Project and the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society. Next, we'll head to the Key West wildlife refuge where we'll snorkel along the shallow backcountry. See sponges, coral, tropical fish and more as the warm Florida Keys sun illuminates the sky. You don't have to be an expert swimmer, because our crew will provide you with guidance and top-of-the-line gear including mask, fins, snorkel and a float if you wish.
After a day on and in the water among nature's most stunning gifts, we'll begin our ride back to dock. Enjoy complimentary fresh fruit, soda, juice, bottled water.
