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 looking for a relaxing day of kayaking and snorkeling and rum drinks were not a priority or large groups of people running into each other in the water. We stumbled across Clearly Unique Charters via Trip Advisor and enjoyed the trip. It's a quirky little boat with tiki /island charm. We decided on the afternoon trip @ 2.00... More

The crew was great. The kayaks were not the most comfortable, but the scenery was wonderful. Saw a turtle, shark, and birds. Was hoping to see manatees, but not that day. The snorkeling was in the small fish area, so the colorful fish were not available. I did follow a lobster around for a while. Good day.

Our guide Kevin was a saltwater activist and a wonderful guide. The captain did a great job as well. Nature was good to us and we saw jellyfish, sharks, turtles, Barracuda, & a great Shipwreck. I would recommend this to anybody who wants to see eco-friendly Key West.

The kayaking was fun around and through a mangrove island with Kevin as our guide who was enjoyable to be with and knowledgeable about the ecosystem. The clear kayaks were also a plus. However, we were disappointed with the snorkeling half of the trip. We were hoping for colorful fish on a coral reef and we got what they called... More

My wife and I went with Clearly Unique largely because of the clear kayaks, but also because the outing combined kayaking (which we've always enjoyed) with snorkeling (which we've never done much of). In short, we had a blast of a good time for the three hours or so that we were out on the water. For this outing, the... More

This was my first snorkeling trip in 25 years and Angie and Ben were available to answer any questions that I had. Also, this was my first experience kayaking, pretty terrific!! Their clear kayaks are awesome! We saw crazy big tarpon, nurse sharks, rays, barracuda and parrot fish. Fantastic adventure that I hope to go on again!

We chose Clearly Unique because of their clear kayaks. We were not disappointed. The bottom of the kayak was like a magnifying glass as we glided over beautiful coral. Angie was knowledgable and fun! They drove us to a place for snorkeling which was nice. There were lobsters everywhere. The captain of the boat even jumped in and swam with... More

I think that this is the worst trip i had ever been on. I would have asked for my money back but they were standing there expecting tips from us. The spearfishing going on by us scared me. I am not use to being in the water and somebody with a speargun did not help. The "captain" i sue that... More

I'm no expert, but the trip was rather unprofessional bordering on unsafe, I think. Kayaking in rather tippy clear kayaks (which are fun) they warned me about my camera but didn't bother to even throw in life vests (though the water was shallow). Guide did nice job while kayaking pointing out wildlife. Snorkeling was more of an adventure. We anchored... More

Capt. Chance and Terri took such good care of us! We had our 11-year old niece with us and they spent extra time making sure everything went smoothly. Could not have asked for better hosts. We kayaked thru Archer Key and then had time for snorkeling. Great way to spend a half day on the water. Highly recommend!
