Tours of Key West presents a fun one-day Miami to Key West tour that combines some great sightseeing along the Florida Keys island chain with a snorkeling trip offshore to the coral reefs of Key West and some time to enjoy the unique, exciting island city of Key Wet. It’s a classic American road trip on the incredible Overseas Highway as you travel the full length of the Keys aboard a luxury touring coach and enjoy an exciting day in America's Caribbean Island paradise.
Fast, easy online booking and complementary pickup service from most major Miami Beach, Sunny Isles Beach, and Downtown Miami hotels make this special package the perfect side-trip addition to your Miami vacation. Modern air-conditioned tour buses with elevated reclining seats near panoramic windows offer the ultimate in relaxing sightseeing. And the 4-hour trip west on the Overseas Highway delivers some amazingly scenic vistas and endless points of interest.
The road runs along 31 Keys, large and small, bustling and remote. The coach crosses 43 bridges over open water on the journey between Key Largo and Key West. About 90 minutes into the trip, at the western end of busy Marathon Key, a world-famous wonder of bridge engineering lifts the coach high above the turquoise and emerald water. The Seven Mile Bridge, completed in 1982, is a sweeping span that offers jaw-dropping views out over the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico as the touring coach seems to swoop over the clear water.
The photo opportunities continue as the highway reconnects with land on tiny Little Duck Key, then hops 3 more bridges to Bahia Honda Key. This is the gateway to the Lower Keys, and the Caribbean island atmosphere, with hundreds of islands, maze-like channels, and many bays makes it feel like you have left the USA behind. You will pass by miles of pristine tropical bushland, small towns, fishing camps, and trophy vacation homes in high-end resort developments as the coach nears Key West.
Scheduled arrival time in Key West is around the noon hour, and your power catamaran will be waiting in the harbor to take you out snorkeling. The expert captain and crew will evaluate weather and water conditions to choose the most favorable snorkeling site. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the cruise. Sit in the shaded lounge area, tan on the spacious sundeck, or stay at the railing and keep an eye out for dolphins, sea turtles and other marine life.
When the captain gives the signal, your friendly crew members will help you gear up with snorkel, mask, and fins. Beginners need not worry – plenty of help and instruction is readily available, and snorkeling is far safer and easier than swimming. Flotation devices are provided for those who desire, and wetsuits are on hand in cooler weather.
A special stairway to the sea drops from the boat to make getting into the water easy, and within minutes you are floating peacefully above one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth. Get close-up views of Angelfish, Blue and Yellow Tang, Moray Eels, Parrotfish, Yellow Snapper, and many other tropical fish species. If you are lucky, you may encounter a sea turtle or one of the big game fish that Key West is famous for.
After exploring the reef for 60 minutes, you can come back aboard to rinse off under the freshwater shower. Then toast your snorkeling success and enjoy the cruise to shore with a marine happy hour featuring frozen margaritas, cold beer, white wine, and a variety of snack chips along with water and soft drinks. Enjoy yourself with the pleasant feeling of having a safe, secure ride back to Miami with a professional driver at the wheel.
