  • Key West Dolphin Watch and Snorkel Eco Tour

    1. Key West Dolphin Watch and Snorkel Eco Tour

    Climb aboard a fast catamaran for an aquatic journey of a lifetime, and observe the grace and beauty of resident Key West dolphins in the shimmering turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Look for bottlenose dolphins as they swim, play, feed and do what comes naturally. Then, head to the Key West wildlife refuge to snorkel in the shallow backcountry waters. Relax in the knowledge that your tour is provided by the only company in the Florida Keys with the prestigious “Dolphin SMART” certification, a national program that protects and promotes the responsible observance of dolphins. The program was put together by conservation agencies, including the National Marine Sanctuary of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Marine Fisheries Service, the Dolphin Ecology Project and the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society. Begin your ride back to the dock, and enjoy...

    Fun boating experience, so cool to see the dolphins up close! Snorkeling experience was very calm and relaxing!

  • Key West: Dolphin Watching & Snorkeling

    2. Key West: Dolphin Watching & Snorkeling

    Climb aboard the Sunset One dolphin boat, sit back and listen to your tour guide explain where you are and where you are heading. Get ready to watch dolphins frolic in their natural playground.  Marvel as the dolphin swim closer to the boat so you can get a better view. Head out to the small islands within the boundaries of the Key West National Wildlife Refuge. Soak in this beautiful little chain of islands and jump into the gorgeous reef, perfect for snorkeling.  See fish up close and maybe some turtles. Climb back aboard and settle yourself in for the ride back to the dock with an ice cold draft beer. Watch the beautiful panoramic sunset over the crystal clear turquoise waters.

The dolphins will be ready to greet you dockside. Prior to meeting the beloved mammals, you’ll get a brief educational session on the world of dolphins, conservation, and a mini demonstration on proper hand placements for each kind of dolphin behavior. Next, feed and play with dolphins from the dry training docks. Guests will also get the opportunity to have some fun playtime interaction, which can be semi-customized to better enhance each guest or group. You’ll even have your own talented photographers capturing your experience throughout the program.
