JUST ONE OF THE MANY SUGGESTIONS THAT THE KEY WEST TRAVEL GUIDE BRINGS YOU:


One of Key West’s best trips, you’ll have the opportunity to snorkel the backcountry habitat and kayak through mangrove islands.

Backcountry Snorkel, Kayak, & Sail
Instead of visiting the reef in the Atlantic, this trip heads to the Gulf Side for snorkeling smaller patch reefs and exploring the mangroves with kayaks.

These trips begin with a trip on a large sailboat and takes you deep into the tranquil, natural habitat of Key West’s backcountry.
Fresh fruit and chilled drinks are served while you choose a single or double kayak and receive easy paddling instructions.

You’ll silently glide through crystal-clear creeks and shallow-water flats filled with mangrove snappers and baby nurse sharks while your guide enlightens you on topics ranging from marine life to local folklore.
After a delicious lunch prepared onboard by your crew, you’ll don snorkel gear for a tour of the beautiful patch reefs covered with sponges, soft corals and starfish and set foot on white-sand beaches and sand bars.
These are high quality trips that are guaranteed to please people of all ages.

The half-day trips depart twice a day and last 4.5 hours. The full-day trip departs once a day and lasts 6.5 hours.
