Itinerary

There are three options for your great day out from Miami: Key West Snorkeling Adventure, Key West Old Town Trolley Adventure and Key West Glass Bottom Boat Adventure.

Key West Snorkeling Adventure: At the start of this thrilling excursion you will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle by your English-speaking driver/guide (Spanish speaking on request).

You will drive south through Florida crossing 42 bridges and hopping over 32 islands before reaching Key West – at around 12 noon. There will be one rest-stop on the way. The views of the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico on the journey will be 'out of this world'.

In Key West – the southernmost city in the continental US – you'll find a Caribbean atmosphere, street artists, outdoor cafes, and restaurants just waiting to enchant you.

This great option offers you the chance to take a thrilling snorkeling cruise in a 65-foot catamaran. The coral reef off Key West, Florida is the third largest barrier reef in the world with a variety of spectacular plants and animals. In addition, the warm, tropical water allows visitors to snorkel year round.

Snorkel gear is provided. You will have a total of 5 hours in the Key West area so, on top of your catamaran trip, you will have 2 hours to enjoy what Key West has to offer.

One of the best spots to visit is Mallory Square, a place where many gather for a spontaneous daily celebration. Mallory Square is located by the historic waterfront.
