Tour Detail


sp-key-west-things-to-do-side1Enjoy the warm afternoon sun while snorkeling in Key West’s pristine, aqua blue waters. The Reef & Ritas Afternoon Snorkeling Tour is a great opportunity for enjoying a luxurious catamaran sail to the only living coral reef in North America. Many of our guests choose the afternoon snorkeling tours compared to the morning Key West snorkeling trips for a variety of reasons:  
  • The afternoon sun is warm and bright making it a great time to relax on the catamaran and enjoy the temperate ocean water.
  • The ocean currents and wind direction are often different than the morning, so if you’ve taken a morning snorkel in the past, chances are you’ll go to a different reef location in the afternoon.
  • Our guests like to start the party early and enjoy a margarita or two on the way back from afternoon snorkeling in Key West.
While onboard, our Catamaran offers the ultimate in sailing and snorkeling comfort, featuring:
  • A Stairway to the Sea
  • Large Sundeck
  • Shaded Lounge Area
  • Fresh Water Rinse
  • Restrooms
  • Top of the Line Sanitized Snorkel Gear Provided

Reef & Ritas

5.0 rating
December 22, 2018

We did the “reef and ritas” snorkeling tour and had a fantastic time. The tour was from 1-4pm, which is the perfect time frame for us. The reef was beautiful and we saw amazing fish (goliath grouper, lobster, baracudas, and parrot fish to name a few). After snorkeling the bar was open and the margaritas were delicious.
