Hello, the trip is definitely recommended. We saw dolphins on the outward trip, several birds on the kayak tour, and fish underwater while snorkeling. There were plenty of drinks and the food was ok. The team of the captain and the 2 guides was very nice and competent. In addition, great weather and a great warm sea. We had a lot of fun and met very nice people. Definitely a great day at sea.

We had a nice tour, everything was explained well and our guide really tried hard. We had a lot of fun and would do it again. This tour is also suitable for beginners

Was a wonderful day with a fairly relaxed long drive - which, however, offered wonderful views of the very special landscape, sea, islands, bridges and houses.

An amazing trip! Don't forget to take something to drink. Prepare you arrival at Key West to enjoy as much as possible
