Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Wonderful day on the water

Well organized crew Excellent but unobtrusive service (loved getting beers brought to us on the deck) The snorkeling was good but not great but only 50 yards or so from anchorage

Terrible customer service, inadequate information provided
Nonoko_S

Part one of the poor review is for the booking company Viator, that did not list the name of the actual vendor in an accessible way and the details of the booking were less than adequate. In a location where street names and street numbers were not visible, we got lost and arrived at the location too late (we missed the boat), and we could not figure out who to call because there were so many other similar companies in the same area and the booking details did not list the company name. We talked to a few companies as we were searching for our location and they all expressed frustration that booking on Viator is extremely difficult. When we finally found the location and was told that we had missed the boat (we don’t fault the company for this although if they list their experiences with a third party booking company they could at least check to make sure their listing information is helpful to tourists new to the area), the customer service was horrible. He told us we needed to be there 30 min before departure (no mention of this on the booking), made us feel completely at fault, and was frankly just rude and unhelpful. Since he offered no options for a refund even though it was our last day and would not be able to rebook for the same experience the next day, we had to change our plans with our traveling group and book for the afternoon tour at a higher cost. Thankfully due to weather, that experience got cancelled, refund was issued, and we no longer have to give this company any of our money. Lesson: 7 of us in the group will never book from this company Sebago or the booking agency ever again.

We had a great time. The staff was very approachable and knowledgeable. The reef was pretty cool and the boat ride out and back was very enjoyable. I would recommend your company to my friends.

Boat great, snorkeling not
Abby_H
, Dec 2021
Boat was great with plenty of space to spread out. Snorkeling was NOT for beginners as water was very choppy and where boat put down there was quite a long swim against the current to see most of the sea life. December is jellyfish season and several on boat got stung. One red, one white and one beer choice for alcohol.
