ShoreTrips says...

Key West's sidewalks can get pretty packed with people when the cruise ships come into port. Many times I've wanted to escape the throngs of tourists and see a more natural Key West. This excursion will take you away from the crowds--and you'll have a ball getting wet and wild.

This exhilarating trip around Key West and the surrounding islands will give you a personalized tour of the beautiful coastline of our southernmost state. Yes, you'll actually travel all the way around the island of Key West on this tour!

The tour starts at Hurricane Hole and travels around Key West, making frequent stops where your guide will point out marine life and give some Key West and nautical history. Even Mallory Square will be visible as you travel, as well as the cruise ship pier. Your guide will point out the mangroves, the indigenous marine life, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean.

These machines are very stable and, if you aren't too crazy in your driving, you won't really have to worry about getting wet. You'll have some free time to enjoy tooling around a bit on your own and, especially on a hot day, you may want to jump into the water for a swim.

Some of the marine life you may see on the tour includes jellyfish, sea urchins, stingrays, and the occasional dolphin or manatee.

These guides have well over 35 years of combined experience and will show you a trip you won't soon forget!
