ISLAND ADVENTURE ECO TOUR
Looking for an authentic Key West experience? Then, take your seat aboard our Island Adventure. You’ll spend the day like a local, kicking back, enjoying laidback fun in the sun and the amazing eco-wonders of Key West’s backcountry. The adventure begins the moment you step onto our custom-built spacious power catamaran. Designed just for this special trip, its unique construction allows us to cruise to the calm and shallow waters of the Florida Keys backcountry quickly and comfortably.
Indulge in a light, complimentary breakfast as the boat leaves the dock on its way to Key West’s backcountry. We’ll travel through Key West’s lake passage, surrounded by lush mangrove islands that create a smooth and scenic ride. We’ll wind between these tropical keys, the ones that only locals know about. Each day and each trip is a different experience—it all depends on which way the tide is rolling …just like the locals; we take it as it comes and always enjoy the ride. As you explore the eco-wonders on the surface, don’t forget that there’s a whole other world beckoning below the waterline. These shallows offer translucent waters and soft sandy bottoms where spiny sea urchins mingle with conch shells and sea sponges. Don’t be surprised if some of the decidedly larger marine life make an appearance like the Goliath grouper, stingrays, and several tropical fish species. Along the way, our onboard naturalists will share their knowledge of the area and its indigenous wildlife with you. Be sure to be on the lookout for our most playful residents, the friendly bottlenose dolphins and curious sea turtles.
Enjoy a delicious lunch as we make our way to a remote natural sandbar where you can sink your toes into the warm sand of the shallow waters, sip a frosty beverage or enjoy some exciting water activities! Grab a kayak and explore the clear waters on a guided tour through the Key West mangroves. If you’ve never kayaked before, our crew will provide instruction that will have you enjoying an easy paddle on one of our sea kayaks in no time. Along the way, you’ll be awed by the stunning natural beauty of this secluded part of the Florida Keys.
Come join us and unwind, our Island Adventure will transport you to a Key West state of mind.
