Key West Is For Snorkelers

Key West is for snorkelers and now is the time to plan your summertime snorkeling adventures in the Caribbean. What better way to enjoy our Key West sunshine than to dive right in? Calm and incredibly flat water in the summer, 100-foot snorkel visibility at America's only living coral reef, and luxury boutique vacation rentals by the sea. Our Concierge Cindy will introduce you to a wide array of watersports — from snorkeling and parasailing to jetting around on WaveRunners. Add a full-day catamaran excursion and make a day of it with full breakfast and buffet options as dolphins frolic alongside.

Fort Zachary Taylor is perfect for snorkeling close to shore. It’s widely considered to be the best beach in Key West. It's located at the southernmost tip at the end of Southard Street on Truman Annex. The historic fort was built in 1866 and the snorkeling is just as amazing as the structure.

A naturalist’s escape to the Dry Tortugas is highly recommended. Visitors never tire of the beautiful sandy beach surrounded by turquoise waters. The warm shallow waters make it easy to experience thriving coral while spotting sea stars, queen conchs and other marine life. You’re very like to encounter a sea turtle or bottlenose dolphins, too. Best of all, if you make the trip on the ferry they provide complimentary masks, snorkels and fins!

Water activities guides also host several types of tours for groups. We recommend the double-dip. It’s a tour that lasts about three hours and their catamarans take you to two different reefs. Guests love the boats that have a stairway to the sea for ease of entry and exit, fresh water showers on board and shaded lounge areas. They also provide complimentary snorkel gear, snacks and beverages.
