“Laid back eco-tour at a fair price”

Clearly Unique Charters

Attraction details
Owner description: We have the only glass bottom Kayaks in Key West. Take a quick boat ride out to the National Wildlife Refuge for a guided tour around and through one of the many untouched mangrove islands. We often see such things as: a variety of birds, sharks, rays, turtles, lobster, crabs etc. Kayaking is followed by snorkeling in either a natural sponge garden, small boat wreck or coral reefs not visited by the larger companies. All ages are welcome. We love what we do and enjoy sharing it with others! *Private charters available.

“Laid back eco-tour at a fair price”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Today (4/4/13) my boyfriend and I set out in the afternoon with clearly unique charters. Sam was our guide and Chris was our captain. We went to archer key, which is part of the key west national wildlife refuge. It was pretty cool to be out kayacking among mangroves. We saw lots of birds a shark (baby one) and a bunch of different fish. Afterwards we went snorkeling in what they called the sponge forest. Lots of fishies there and some really cool coral. Over all it was worth the money. Chris and Sam were really great guides. We recommend clearly unique tours.

“Great way to explore the area!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We went out with Matt and Sam on a combination snorkling and kayaking adventure. It was probably the highlight of our trip! The were great tour guides and the snorkling spot was terrific! We saw 3 large rays while snorkling and 3 nurse sharks while kayaking. We were glad to be riding in their fast boat rather than a sailboat which would have taken much longer to get to our snorkling spot. One tip: Try to go on a light wind day. The day we went was really calm and it made for great snorkling and kayaking. We took the morning trip and I was really tempted to sign up for the afternoon one as well.

Matt and Sam were great! Sam took the time on our kayak tour to make sure we really got to know what the Keys are about.

“Fun and Educational”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

This trip is a great one to see the Keys in a different way. The trip out to where you kayak is very short (15-20 mins). Going through the mangrove tunnels was a lot of fun. You never know what kind of wild life you will see, but that is part of what makes it interesting. After kayaking, you go to a nice area to snorkel before returning back. Matt and Sam gave a lot of information about what we saw or could see. They were the ones who made the trip special. I highly recommend this trip and encourage people to ask lots of questions.

“Big Shark Shadow”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Just had great day out with Matt and Sam.

Saw large turtle and fast little one, rays, sponge, birds of prey, amazing amount of fish on a sunk boat wreck when snorkeling, tree crabs when kayaking through mangrove cut throughs, horseshoe something prehistoric ... and a huge shark.

Matt and Sam kept us entertained with stories and Sam was a good kayak guide pointing everything he could in our see-through kayak.

Recommend it for the kayaking alone, the rest is cherry on top.
