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.

Excellent choice for a snorkeling charter

What a wonderful trip! As a person who has terrible sea sickness, this large catamaran didn’t make me sick! There were about 70 people on our trip but the boat was big enough that you didn’t feel like sardines in a can. It takes about an hour to get out to the reef and you get an hour to swim around. Saw a puffer fish, yellowfin, parrot fish and others I couldn’t identify. The crew was amazing and attentive.

Beautiful, clean catamaran. Did not feel overcrowded at all. Crew was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was safe. Although we didn’t snorkel (we just enjoy being on the boat), the equipment looked very clean and well cared for. It was a beautiful day on the boat and on the water.

Captain and crew were very professional and personable. Boat was clean and large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably. Easy to get in and out of the water and onto the boat. Great experience. Open bar was a great touch after the snorkeling.
