Witness the wonder of North America’s only living coral reef on the Glass Bottom Boat Eco Cruise in Key West. You may even observe sea turtles, rays and fish of all kinds gliding through the crystal waters they call home.

From the comfort of a glass bottom boat, you can explore dramatic underwater vistas generally reserved for scuba divers. A wide variety of fish and other sea creatures await you as you gaze into the underwater world of Key West. In addition, you will have the opportunity to see one of the most biologically diverse marine eco-systems in the world. Majestic elkhorn and impressive brain coral, sturdy in appearance yet fragile and vulnerable, stand sentry for the more than 300 species of fish that complete the colorful and intriguing seascape.

During the trip, your experienced captain and crew will provide a unique and informative eco-tour and point out some of the most interesting marine life that inhabit the waters of this incredible island. Special glass “windows to the reef” provide continuous viewing for all passengers.
