This was our family’s 2nd trip out for snorkeling with Looe Key Dive Center. Both times, we were extremely pleased. Professionally run, safe, & fun. Would definitely recommend for all levels of snorkelers, including kids.

You all can go on the same trip with Looe Key DC. The reef trips all go to the same reef. You'll have fun all around. The boat has snacks and drinks for sale. Super friendly and safe crew. You'll love it.
