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.

My wife and I did the morning kayak and snorkel trip on March 23 and had a blast! We saw sharks, turtles and rays while kayaking and too many species to count snorkeling. The staff was great and very knowledgeable and when we came across a chest freezer floating free they were going to try and bring it aboard until... More

These people are terrific and they know what they are doing. We had an amazing time with them. We went kayaking in transparent kayaks in the mangrove keys. After about 2 hours of kayaking. we moved to another location to snorkel. We were able to see sea sponges, massive conch shells, and tons of fish. The boat is stocked with... More

Chance and Angie led a great tour. 10 ppl and we kayaked then snorkeled. It was fun and relaxing and no pressure to keep up or do anything. Angie was a great guide and really responsive to questions etc. EASY for beginners and though we were alone, our 4 year old could have handled it! Recommend for a day where... More

Just returned from a great trip with Clearly Unique. The glass bottom kayaks made it so much easier to see underwater (way clearer without having to look across the glare of the ripples on the surface. But unfortunately we didn't see anything except millions of baby fish and some birds. Others in our group saw a couple turtles, a ray,... More

We went out on Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015. We traveled down to Key West after being turned away from snorkeling in Key Largo due to the water conditions. On our way down we found Clearly Unique in a travelers book. Long story short the phone call was made and our day was saved. Matt was happy to accommodate us on... More

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
