Our captains make sure to take our guests to the best dolphin & reef locations. We have been hanging out with the dolphins and snorkeling for a long time in Key West and our captains study the time of year, current, weather patterns, and much more to ensure our trips go to the best snorkeling location each and every day. We venture to a dolphin hangout called the dolphin playground to get up close and personal with our dolphin friends. Some of our popular reef locations are Sand Key Light House, Eastern Dry Rocks, Western Dry Rocks, and a few other secret locations
Depending on the reef location our sail out to the reef can take up to 40 minutes. Our brand new snorkeling catamaran is not only Key West’s newest but the fastest as well. Beating all other boats out to ensure we get the best spot as well as ensuring our guests the most time in the water.
