All In One Watersports
All In One Key West Watersports
This all in one, day-long tour truly offers something for everyone. Take in a day of action in the beautiful tropical waters off Key West with snorkeling, jet skis, kayaking, paddle-boarding, and other water toys all included.
Departing from Key West's Historic Seaport, set sail on a catamaran to your first destination, snorkeling the coral reef. During the scenic, casual sail to the snorkeling spot you will enjoy a delicious continental breakfast prepared fresh on board, including cinnamon rolls, yogurt parfaits, and delicious Cuban cheese toast.
New to snorkeling? No worries, the trained staff provides all the equipment and professional instruction necessary to make you feel comfortable in the water. The coral reef, 7 miles from land, is in sheltered, shallow waters that provide perfect snorkeling conditions. Enjoy the underwater world for approximately one hour exploring the beautiful corals and colorful fish. If you are unfamiliar with the many reef inhabitants, a knowledgeable crew member will help with the fish identification card.
After exploring the reef, there is easy access back aboard with the stairway to walk up on to the catamaran. Wash off the salt with a freshwater rinse, relax and bask in the Caribbean sun or grab a seat in the shade under the covered deck. Your next destination is a secluded water park with all the best toys. During the hour-long sail, feast on the lunch buffet with its famous and delectable spread. Dishes can vary, a typical lunch includes peel-and-eat shrimp, fried chicken, assorted deli meats and cheeses, breads, side salads, fresh fruit, and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
Spend approximately 3 hours at the water park where everyone gets a turn on the toys of their choice. Your ship remains docked at the floating playground which means you can relax onboard and enjoy the food and drink or take breaks while other family members play in the water.
As the day begins to wind down after hours of adventure, it's time to return to land. Snack on chips and dip or indulge with a sweet. Wash it all down with your choice of complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks, and filtered water. Then relax and enjoy the balmy breeze as Key West comes back into view and your amazing day on the water concludes.
