My boyfriend and I planned a day trip to Key Largo, and after reading the reviews, decided to do the glass bottom boat tour at the state park. I am so glad we did! At first it seemed a little pricey, but it was well worth it after the experience. The two girls that narrate the trip were very knowledgeable and the Captain was amazing at steering the boat so everyone got a chance to see everything. We were able to see just a ton of amazing fish, a 4'-5' stingray, a shark, 1000 yr old coral, parts of a shipwreck, and more things than I can describe in 200 characters. The water was too cold for a snorkeling trip, but this was a great alternative. Not too crowded either as there were two viewing areas in the boat with upper and lower seating. We were between the windows and the odd numbered viewing side. The girl describing everything could say where a fish was and the captain upstairs could maneuver the boat so we could see it. Just truly a wonderful experience! Next time we come down, we're going to go canoeing and hopefully take advantage of the snorkeling trip!
