The weather was inclement - too windy to go out to the wildlife refuge, and the rough waters had washed out the views of the sponges on the reef - but Ecotours found a good solution - to hide leeward of Fleming Key where the water was calm enough to paddle along the mangroves. John was a super knowledgeable nature... More

We learned so much about the marine animals below the surface as well as the plant and animal life above the surface! The group was small and intimate which made it easy for everyone to get a close-up look at... More

We did the half day sail, kayak, and snorkel tour with Bethany and couldn't have been happier! Bethany is very knowledgeable and explained so much about the areas we explored and Key West in general. She was very patient with my first time snorkeling mom and the unexpected high winds. The trip was definitely one of the highlights of our... More

We went on the half day dolphin/snorkel tour. Our guide was Bosco and we were on a catamaran converted to a bimini-topped power boat. It was just five of us (three from my family and another couple). We went to the dolphin playgrounds and saw at least 10-15 dolphin feeding and playing. One dolphin jumped 7 times in a row... More

Key West Ecotours picked us up at our motel in Key West and returned us after the tour. Along the way the driver and guide shared anecdotes/tips about Key West. Our guide was very, very well-informed. She led us in shallow water through the mangroves near Geiger Key. As we paddled she drew our attention to wildlife among the mangroves.... More
