“Absolutely Great!!!!”
Review of Catamaran Echo

Owner description: Wild dolphin & Shallow water snorkel day trips - Champagne Celebration Sunset Sailing - Private Charters for the entire group, or just a few! It's always upscale on this beautiful 28 seat sailing catamaran because of quality controls - like 14 maximum on public trips, up to 19 on Private. Join our Wild Dolphin, Snorkel & Sailing Adventure day trip to visit Wild Dolphins in the shallow waters off Key West, Snorkel reefs, wrecks and giant sponge gardens (wherever it's best) and enjoy some great Sailing too. Top quality snacks, fruit, soft drinks, beers and wines are always included free on Catamaran Echo. Our Key West Sunset & Moet Cruise includes only the best of the best served on the water - Champagne, 7 premium Wines, 3 top Beers and our famous Gourmet Cheese Buffet. Even better - Moet & Chandon Champagnes are available as an upgrade, and at wholesale prices, but only to our guests. It's nice to know that you'll only be served the best, while sailing into the Key West sunset.

My wife and I took the wild dolphin and snorkeling trip. It was great!!! Captain Noah found us a pod of 10 Dolphins when everyone else had been lucky to see just one! This was also my first snorkeling attempt, the Deckhand Tess was great, she made sure I had a great time and was very helpful! Then we get a free snack (very fresh fruits and other things) Thanks again Captain Noah and Tess for the absolutely awesome first experience!!!

CATAMARAN ECHO, specializing in dolphin trips, is that rare, HIGH END CATAMARAN sailing experience in Key West, where the owner, Tom, personally welcomes you, along with stewardess/crew Tess & the captain, to be certain you have a wonderful & exceptional experience in their highly experienced hands! The Moet Chandon Sunset Sail was absolutely exceptional & fun in every way! This is a highly experienced nautical team that truely goes out of their way to provide you an enjoyable, personable experience, with stellar service as their priority! Tess' personality, dedication & enthusiasm made all the difference! She graciously answered questions about ECHO, dolphins, Key West & the reef, while serving delicious cheeses, crackers, wine & Moet Chandon champagne. ECHO has room for 28 passengers, yet they take only 14, to give you plenty of room to move around, take photos, & enjoy Tom's beautiful catamaran! The sailing was fantastically smooth; we saw dolphins & a gorgeous sunset!
I highly recommend CATAMARAN ECHO & her Captain & crew for a top notch experience in Key West! You'll almost feel like you've chartered your own catamaran with a few friends; the service & entire experience is that wonderful! This is a special & unique experience in Key West! The boat was immaculate; a gorgeous catamaran, far larger inside than I'd anticipated, & with very comfortable seating! For the price & the VIP service, it's an excellent value in Key West! I highly recommend advance reservations!

This one is a "can't miss" on your Key West to do list. So just go ahead and call to make a reservation. Take a Certified Executive Chef's opinion and recommendation. From the excellent choices of imported cheeses, freshly baked and locally made fish dip(amazing) smilin bob's i think, to the ever-flowing wines and the courteous and friendly crew of Capt Noah and mate Tess, this was the most enjoyable experience that I and my wife( i will go ahead and speak for her was well) have ever had. Do NOT book one of those LARGER, packed vessels (fury corporation) that are trying to eliminate the smaller guy that does a much better job.

I did the dolphin and snorkeling tour and it was a wonderful experience. The dolphin were out and jumping. It was relaxing. For the snorkeling, the water was a little murky, but it was right after a hurricane so I assume thats why. Fun to have drinks and fruit after the swim. The crew was fun and I met some great people. Don't forget to bring the sunblock.

What a great afternoon, from Captain Tom at Check-in to Noah and Tess, it was a great afternoon on the water! We saw lots of dolphins on our tour. They made sure we had everything we needed. Would highly recommend.
