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.

Best snorkeling trip in Key West

This was an extremely awesome experience! The crew was awesome, the catamaran was clean and really nice. The weather didn’t want to cooperate at first but the team helped us feel comfortable navigating it all and still getting a chance to see a great plethora of fish, coral, and even jellies! Wish we had more time to do it again!!!

We had a brisk and overcast day, but relatively calm seas. Our small group totaling only 14 were well socially distanced. The crew were attentive, informative, and professional. The trip back was relaxing and drinks were plentiful!

We love it - even without snorkelling.

The crew, the boat, everything was great. We got everything we expected - snorkelling equipment, instructions on a boat how to use everything, all the information, great atmosphere - but the weather :( But we were very impressed - the crew did not give up on us!!! They really try to get us to the reef so we can get snorkelling. Unfortunately the wind and the waves were to strong and they did not risk our lives. Our kids were disappointed but for me - It was quite impressive!!!! No complains at all. On our way back to the Key West we could experience strong wind, some bumps and even a rainstorm. We just promised the kids to come back on a snorkelling excursion at the summer time. 100% we will choose Sebago and Marquesa!!! One more thing worth to mention - because snorkelling did not happen - I had a phone call while still on a boat - the company gave us a full refund!!!

Fun day despite challenging weather

Lovely day on the water. I was anticipating no beer or wine on the ride out, it was in the description I read online. Some of the other passengers were miffed - there are drinks once the crew heads back in. The beers were very refreshing on the way back! Our day on the water was a bit chilly, windy, and very choppy. Not a great day for visibility, not a great day for inexperienced swimmers. The crew made it very clear that if you weren't a strong swimmer, it was not recommended to get in the water. And yet, many first time swimmers jumped right in, and had to be rescued by crew. It was quite an operation and our crew of 3 was firm, warm, clear, direct, and efficient. Hubby and I were happiest right under the boat, holding the ropes and looking below us at a school of fish that look like the ones pictured in the thumbnail. Even in off season, it was fascinating to see the ocean at work. It wasn't an ideal day for snorkeling, and yet, my husband and I had a great time, made new friends, and saw North America's only living coral reef. More than worth the money.

Okay, nothing more nothing less. Not covid proof.

Everything was just okay. But if you’re following any covid precautions this is not your trip. The crew does not wear masks once they are out of the harbor, and in the harbor not the correct way. Also, we had to be in very close proximity to other participants most of the time.

Our snorkling trip was highlighted by sightings of a shark and a turtle. The ride to and from the reef was pleasant and the crew on the boat were amazing. Wonderful customer service with a focus on safety, safety, safety. Everything was sanitized and the boat was super clean. We had about an hour on the reef which was enough- it was a bit chilly on the day of our trip- Everyone saw tons of great fish and marine life. My only recommendation... it would be nice to have a chart on the boat to use to id the marine flora and fauna.
