This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Looe Key (Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary), Looe Key Existing Management Area Nancy Foster Florida Keys Environmental Complex, FL 33040

Looe Key Marine Sanctuary is part of the Great Florida Reef, the only coral reef in the continental USA, and the third largest barrier reef system after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and the Palancar Reef in Mexico and Belize. It is a special place for snorkeling.

Your captain will snorkel along with you assuring your safety–though there is nothing to worry about. All of our tours are accompanied by fair weather, calm conditions, and friendly creatures. The captain will lead the way through this groove and spur seascape to reveal barracuda, rays, shark, parrotfish, blue tang to name a few. Looe Key promises to be an experience of a lifetime, and one that you will not soon forget.
