“Nice boat ride and coral viewing”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Clearly, snorkeling or diving this reef would've been preferable, but that wasn't possible this time and the Glass Bottom Boat Tour was a nice alternative.

Spirit of Key West is comfortable - a nice pilothouse deck that seats 30 or so, and an enclosed cabin/viewing area to observe the reef and wildlife. Knowledgable captain and crew.

Enjoyed this activity, good value.

“The Sunset Cruise and the Glass Bottom view with Fury, do not miss 'em”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The Sunset Cruise from 4-6 pm was captivating. Informative crew members, glass bottom view, complimentary champagne, what else could one ask for. Also, it is a wonderful option for children who gets to view the reef through the glass bottom boat.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Expected more since it is the third largest...having seen the Great Barrier Reef and several other smaller reefs and expecting some colors...but, only grey and just a few of the same fish. The staff were great and the sunset was beautiful.

“YOU HAVE TO DO THIS!!!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

One of the most extraordinary experiences of my life was to see the barrier reef, the fish, the coral, thousands of years of nature. This is the 3rd largest reef in the world and the boat is staffed by young people who explain and identify what you are seeing. Great afternoon trip!
