In Miami for a cruise, but you arrived early, or just docked and you still have some time on your hands. No problem, we have the perfect day trip right here. See exciting Key West, soak up the ambiance, enjoy the history and then go on a glass bottom boat over the world's 3rd largest coral reef system. So go ahead, and make the most of your vacation, you earned it!
Your transportation will pick you up at your resort/hotel for the 4-hour ride down to famous Key West. You'll see some great sights as you cross 42 bridges to get to one of the most famous islands in the world, Key West. It is the last island and piece of land in Florida at its southernmost tip. There's much to do and included in this package is a glass-bottom boat ride. Please note that we offer 3 other options and packages for a day trip to Key West - see below.
You will have about 4 hours of free time. Key West has lots to do, maybe you'll want to visit the Hemingway Home, one of the area's first major celebrities. He is known to have written some of his best work on Key West. There's also a trolley that will take you around town, but you can hop off at any time, and, of course, there is the famous Mallory Square, which is a gathering place for locals all day, but especially at sunset. It's almost a religious duty for the locals to go and silently appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature. Sip some coffee and do a bit of people-watching. Hear street musicians, check out the shops, and maybe just stroll along the waterfront. Enjoy some lunch on the beach.
When your time comes for the glass bottom boat, you'll go to the dock and be welcomed aboard by the captain and crew. Roomy with plenty of seats, this boat even has an air-conditioned cabin. But, it's the state-of-the-art glass bottom that will hold your attention. Your experienced captain will go along over the top of America's only living coral reef. You'll have the opportunity to see hundreds of species of marine life such as tropical fish, turtles, sharks, coral, sponges, lobsters, crabs, and more. Your knowledgeable crew will also tell you about what you are seeing, explain the need for this healthy ecosystem, and keep you entertained as you marvel at the beauty of the sea. There's no rush either, all total time on the boat will be approximately 2 hours so you can also enjoy the view of Key West from the ocean.
When this great day in Key West comes to a close, you'll head back to your transportation for the scenic ride back to Miami where you will be dropped back off at your hotel/resort.
