Once you arrive in Key West, get 6 hours to explore the island at a leisurely pace, stroll the artistic streets, or relax at outdoor cafes and restaurants.

Travel on a state-of-the-art Catamaran, receive professional instruction, use top-of-the-line snorkel gear, and enjoy an open bar on the way back (including sodas beer, wine, champagne, margaritas, well-mixed drinks) 

- A 2-Hour cruise on a glass-bottom boat where you can witness the wonders of North America’s only living coral reef, maybe spotting sea turtles and rays. Fun for all the family, you also get great views of Key West from the sea.

- A 12-15 minute parasail off the coast of Key West on a 1-Hour parasailing adventure. Enjoy the tropical vibe of the Keys as you are helped into your parasail harness, before being slowly raised in the air, until you are flying high above Key West.

Very nice activity. The staff on the boat were lovely and the water is delicious. He just missed the provider's address when I arrived in Key west but after a few exchanges by the chat we were able to solve this problem and arrive in time before the departure of the boat

The bus itself is comfortable but didn’t smell so great. The restroom on the bus didn’t have toilet paper or hand sanitizer. Driver made us pay an additional $10 cash before boarding, stating it was for taxes and fuel. A fee that wasn’t mentioned anywhere on the Company’s site, when I booked four hours prior. At the end of the trip, we were told that the $10 covered the driver’s tip. I would have happily paid more for this trip but that seemed sketchy to me. The ride to Key West was beautiful and didn’t feel like a 4 hour drive. We did buy the all day hop on/hop off tour, only to realize everything we wanted to see was right where we got off the bus. The ride back was no fun. We stopped at McDonald’s that served some but not others. One woman complained for the full 3 hrs to anyone within earshot and loudly via FaceTime to anyone who was unfortunate enough to answer their phone. I don’t fault the tour. I knocked off a star for the undisclosed fee.

Excellent experience, comfortable double-decker bus with bathroom, good air conditioning, I will make a stop before entering the Keys for breakfast in about 20 minutes and then 3 hours to downtown Key West where we have 6 hours of free time and enjoy wonderful historical places and restaurants, highly recommended.
