Full description
Your experience begins as you arrive to the Cow Key Marina on Stock Island. Start by meeting your guide, who teaches you how to operate your own little pistol boat. Your guide then takes off, leading you through the back country of Key West. As you travel you may see ospreys - the only bird of prey to survive entirely on fish. There's also the opportunity to spot manatees feeding on mangroves, sharks swimming beneath you, and pelicans diving for their meals. You soon arrive to Mud Key, a beautiful little sandbar set in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Whilst there, wade in the soothing crystal waters, explore the island, or simply relax. Following your time exploring, begin your journey back to the marina through the winding mangrove maze.

The tour and the guide were absolutely great, we have rarely done such a nice tour. Great nature and a drive to a collect island. The snorkeling wasn't that great as we are used to other things. Only one thing spoiled the tour for us and that was the woman from reception, I've rarely experienced something so unfriendly, we almost didn't do the tour.

This activity is hands down the best of many activities that we have done in the Keys! We were treated so well and Michael our guide was awesome with a great sense of humor! Honestly, I am having a hard time leaving a review because I don't want it to become so popular that it becomes difficult to find a reservation or unaffordable for us bur that would be selfish because the business is well deserved because it's such a great trip. You will get to see places that many don't get to see on other tours and without spoiling it for you; all I can say is go because you won't be disappointed!!! Thank you, The Allen Family

Boat ride out to the Mangroves was alot of fun. It was great to be able to " man your own vessel" though we were quite safe following our Tour Guide. We did not see any fish other than minnow-size for the snorkeling part. Saw 2 birds. The weather was on the windy side which stirred up the water some. We had a good time, however, we were glad that we had booked an additional "2- Reef stop Snorkeling tour" with your company the next day to really see alot of beautiful fish!
