We have the only glass bottom Kayaks in Key West. Take a quick boat ride out to the National Wildlife Refuge for a guided tour around and through one of the many untouched mangrove islands. We often see such things as: a variety of birds, sharks, rays, turtles, lobster, crabs etc. Kayaking is followed by snorkeling in either a natural sponge garden, small boat wreck or coral reefs not visited by the larger companies. All ages are welcome. We love what we do and enjoy sharing it with others! *Private charters available.

We were in a group of four (two kayaks) plus the owner-as-guide, Matt. With only two kayaks, I would have hoped that Matt would ensure that everybody could hear his commentary, but he really made no effort at all -- he just pointed out things to whichever kayak was near him. We also spent most of the time kayaking around... More

Ummm..Ok. Let me get this straight. In early February on a sunny 70 something degree day, with light, light winds I ran a trip with JUST 4 people on a 42ft catamaran in which I took them to an island in the National Wildlife Refuge, using clear kayaks that kids would enjoy, of which there was at least one, kayaked...

We've done a lot of kayaking on vacation but this puts a great new twist on it. Kayaking in clear kayaks is a great way to see any ocean life under you while kayaking. We had to switch our day that was scheduled because we were told that the weather wouldn't be good. I called Matt, the owner, on the... More

Spent a fantastic afternoon with my wife on board in a small group of 4. During the kayaking part our guide always watched for interesting spots. The snorkeling part was fun even for us as first time snorkelers. Definitely recommendable, the price is absolutely ok.

This was a really fun excursion with personalized attention. We were not just a number. We had a guide take us around canary island in clear bottom kayaks and went through a tunnel in the mangroves. The snorkeling was great with lots of fish and coral. Highly recommend this smaller excursion outfitter. The boat is a little tucked away but... More

We had a morning tour with Matt and Angie during Christmas week and had a wonderful time. It was just us and one other couple. We first kayaked and saw herons, cormorants, lots of mangrove trees, sponge and sea grass through the glass bottom kayaks, and a sawfish! The kayaking was easy even for two people in their 60s with... More

We had a good time and the weather was great. The mate was more than patient with some of the others on the trip. It was a fun day but the whole operation just needs to feel a bit more polished. Well worth your time.

I hadn't really researched how Key West is such a unique marine environment. I am very glad I got smart early in my first Key West visit, and that I lucked into finding Clearly Unique for a 1/2 day trip to snorkel and kayak. My trip was a 20 minute ride out for a nice, leisurely hour of paddling around... More

Recently went on the clearly unique charter trip and had a blast! I kayak often but the clear bottom ones were definitely something new for me. The guide was great with pointing out sea life, she even went so far as to jump into the water to pull up a couple of horseshoe crabs to let everyone check out up... More
