Group Snorkeling at Coffin’s Patch Reef
Our daily snorkel trips depart from the tranquil island of Duck Key, which boasts some of the most beautiful water in the keys. Aboard our new power catamaran, Helios, you will enjoy a quick island tour passing the Hawks Cay Resort, Dolphin Connection, and residential area of Duck Key. Then it's a pleasant 20 minute cruise to the reef. Be sure to keep your eyes open for turtles and dolphins on the way! Enjoy approximately 1.5 hours of snorkeling the Coffins Patch Sanctuary Preservation Area of the Reef.
Join us as we set off for reef snorkeling at Coffins Patch aboard Helios, our 45’ power catamaran. The shallow patch reefs of the Coffins Patch Sanctuary Preservation Area (SPA), located approximately four nautical miles off Key Colony Beach, offer some of the best snorkeling in the Middle Keys.
Tangs, jacks, stingrays, nurse sharks, grouper, lobster, butterfly fish, and the curious moray all call Coffins Patch home, plying the easy currents among soft corals, up to three-foot round boulder coral, and some of the prettiest patches of pillar coral in the area. The azure Caribbean water around the reef is the best place to observe the abundant sea life! Snorkel gear included.
