Your day is spent exploring Key West’s uninhabited mangrove islands in the Key West National Wildlife Refuge. Keep an eye out for dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays and many other wildlife that call the Refuge home. Your day is divided between guided kayaking tours and guided snorkeling tours. For kayaking, your crew will help you into your stable sea kayak, providing paddling instructions. On your kayaking tour, the crew talks about the mangroves and their important role as nurseries to the sea. You also have the opportunity to get in the water on a guided snorkel tour. Your experienced crew provides professional instructions on snorkeling along with information on the sponge gardens. Take in the tropical fish, sponges, and marine wildlife that call the gardens home. After your tours, come back aboard and wash off with our fresh water rinse. Find a comfortable spot to relax on deck. Choose from plenty of complimentary cold drinks like cold beer, wine, Sebago’s homemade sangria, chilled sodas and filtered water.
Lunch is also served on the boat, an all-you-can-eat fresh buffet feast. Start with peel and eat shrimp and delicious fried chicken. Move on to a selection of deli meats and cheeses accompanied by assorted breads and condiments. You can also enjoy snacks of chocolate chip cookies, chips and dip, and seasonal fruits.
