Overview
More
We have the only glass bottom Kayaks in Key West. Take a quick boat ride out to the National Wildlife Refuge for a guided tour around and through one of the many untouched mangrove islands. We often see such things as: a variety of birds, sharks, rays, turtles, lobster, crabs etc. Kayaking is followed by snorkeling in either a natural sponge garden, small boat wreck or coral reefs not visited by the larger companies. All ages are welcome. We love what we do and enjoy sharing it with others! *Private charters available.

Capt Eddie gave us a personal tour of a couple nearby islands in our clear kayak! The boat ride there was beautiful! Capt Eddie was knowledgeable of the ecology of Archer Key! Great experience! Will definitely recommend to friends.
