Unit #1; Office located on Lazy Way Lane between Conch Republic and Schooner Wharf.

This activity will end right where it started.
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.

It was a nice boat ride, more boat ride than snorkel experience. Too many people for my liking. 75. For someone who has never been on a boat it would be fun. Not much too see snorkeling and was in the middle of the ocean. Slightly rough that day.

Our crew aboard the sebago was awesome. Love the way they made the rules funny yet serious. Had a great time in the water looking and searching for all the colorful fish. I would highly recommend sabago for your snorkeling experience. Lisa and Jeff from Old Town Florida

Disappointed

Pleasent boat ride; however, the view snorkeling was nothing compared to what was portrayed in the advertising pictures. The guides did not give good direction on where to snorkel and seem to anchor at least 200 hundred yards from anything worth seeing. We saw more fish standing at the docks at the Marriott. Extremely disappointed and would not recommend to anyone.

Overcrowded disappointment!
Christopher_L

Worst, overpacked, unfun snorkel tour I’ve ever taken. The two young girls were nice (Liv and Viv), but the the haggard two leaders on the boat (the captain and bartender) were rude and lazy. They ruined the experience for everyone. The boat drops you off on a dead reef with nothing to see, and right next to another of the company’s catamarans so that 100+ flailing tourists flop about all around you. The trip on the boat was miserable as their was no music, no place to sit with the overcrowding—and they open the bar for the last 20 minutes of the 3 hour tour. This tour was the low point of our trip to Key West. Avoid at all costs.

Smorkle excursion - no coral reef!
Susan_M
, May 2022
UnfirtubTeky the wi d was at 20 knots and although the plan was to go to the coral reef it did not happen and there was litterly very little to see where we were taken. It would be great if this company whose crew was great would send us a 25% -40% discount voucher to go with them agai. Since they switched the intended plan even if weather related. If this was the case I would definitely make plans to return within the year!
