It's always upscale on this beautiful 28 seat sailing catamaran because of quality controls - like 1/2 full maximum. Join our Wild Dolphin, Snorkel & Sailing Adventure day trip to visit Wild Dolphins in the shallow waters off Key West, Snorkel reefs, wrecks and giant sponge gardens (wherever it's best) and enjoy some great Sailing too. Top quality snacks, fruit, soft drinks, beers and wines are always included free on Catamaran Echo. Our Key West Sunset & Moet Cruise includes only the most expensive items served on the water - Champagne, 6 premium Wines, 3 top Beers and our famous Gourmet Cheese Buffet. Even better Moet & Chandon Champagnes are available as an upgrade, and at wholesale prices, but only to our guests. It's nice to know that you'll only be served the best, while sailing into the Key West sunset.

We were lucky enough to book this beautiful boat on a Sunday to find were the only people on the boat. Fabulous crew felt like royalty. Saw dolphins and went snorkeling around an old ship wreak. Would absolutely recommend this as it's wonderful.

We booked through Viator and apparently went during a slow time so it was just the 2 crew members and one other couple besides us! (We went in mid-September). It was great! They had a great selection of wine, champagne (that you can upgrade if desired) and also some beer. We were out for roughly 2 hours and the sunset... More

Outstanding Cruise, with an impressive selection of champagne, wine, cheese and fresh fruit. The crew and ship were fantastic and the sunset views were beautiful.

We booked the sunset tour and snorkeling tour through Viator. When we arrived the ship, we were told to pay service charge before we board the ship. This made us unhappy because on Viator booking, this hidden fee was not mentioned. On Expedia booking, all possible fees are mentioned and that there is a statement that all fees Expedia knows...

Dear Guangyu C, We are so sorry for the misunderstanding, especially because we were so happy to have some visitors from China onboard. The amount that you put on your credit card at the dock was completely for the crew as a gratuity for great service, or tip. While language barriers are not new for us, we did a bad... More

Our family went on a dolphin and snorkeling tour with Ben and first mate Desire, back in July. They were absolutely wonderful. They were so knowledgeable with telling use about the dolphins and getting them to come to the boat. The knew the area so well, and the fish to tell us about before snorkeling. It ended up being only... More

We went on this after our daughter was married at the Butterfly Conservatory. The crew was terrific and our sunset was absolutely beautiful. The food and wine was great also. Had a great time with family and friends.

Enjoyed the two-hour sunset cruise this past Labor Day weekend. The ride was smooth, the staff attentive, and the onboard treats (especially the bread and the apricot-flecked cheese) were wonderful! Ben and Desiree did a nice job, with Desiree working very hard to keep the guests hydrated and regaled with local knowledge. What I wanted when I booked.
