For my birthday this year I was treated to a snorkeling excursion with Namaste. My husband I were disappointed with the visibility and lack of variety of fish on the patch reef. My snorkeling from shore on Key West was disappointing as well, so obviously it's not Namaste's fault. On the plus side, Trish and Jeff (owners, captain, and crew)... More

Thank you for your honest review! This nearshore trip turned out to be a perfect match for our guests comfort level. Saw lots of interesting reef critters including juvenile French Angels, Stop Light Parrotfish, and tons of yellow striped Sergeant Majors. Water visibility wasn't bad but not great either. Had our guests been a little more comfortable with the offshore... More

Everyone associated with Namaste was very friendly and accommodating. My wife and I went for a snorkeling tour for her birthday and enjoyed just talking with the owner and his wife as much as the snorkeling. We did find a 'patch reef' with plenty of fish and some interesting corals... nothing super spectacular but an enjoyable hour spent floating in... More

Another great review and again we are so grateful for these wonderful guests. Our guests chose an inshore trip which is great for folks who are not as comfortable with the offshore reef experience. Admittedly the visibility at the in-shore reefs are not nearly as good as the offshore barrier reefs but we always defer to our guests choices. Had... More

We are all first time to snorkeling but the Captain and his friend were very helpful and patient to guide us. You will have a short introduction about fishes and coral and then you will see most of the fishes. We had so much fun!

We wanted to go snorkeling during our stay in Key West, but we didn't want a cattle car of tourists that leaves the feeling of diving in Grand Central Station. We are so glad we found Namaste. There is a limit of 6 guests, on a sailboat that is more than large enough to accommodate. Justin and Ben were excellent... More

We had so much fun seeing all the fish on the reef. Captain Ben was very friendly & made us feel at home on the boat. Trish was very knowledgeable. She helped my boyfriend feel comfortable as he was nervous snorkeling for the first time. This is far better than any cattle boat filled with people. You also spend more... More

We are so pleased your trip with us was the "Highlight" of your stay in Key West. Both Captain Ben and Captain Trish expressed their amazement how well you folks tuned in to the ecology of the reef. Trish was especially pleased to accommodate your willing but apprehensive partner and hopes his experience was as good as the pictures indicated.... More

Although the seas were rough and the snorkeling could have been better, the crew made our trip very enjoyable. Sunset was beautiful!!! Would book another snorkel trip with them.

I have snorkeled many times and many places. It is one of my favorite things to do. What a great service to be taken out by a knowledgeable captain/guide who was familiar with the area and where to go dependent upon the weather. The after-snorkel snack service was great. I would definitely book with Namaste again.

We are absolutely stoked to get our passion for the reef mentioned in a review. We are self admitted reef geeks and proud of it! The beauty of this trip was that our guests totally got it. The reef is precious and worthy of our deepest respect. Thank you for sharing the day with us!!! More

We signed up for a snorkel tour. It was a windy day, and, after we were on the boat, we were told that we could not snorkel that day, so the adventure was changed by Namaste' to a kayak trip in the mangroves. This was enjoyable, and Capts. Justin and Ralph were great, but we already had a bigger kayak... More
