    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    When you’re in Key West, don’t miss this opportunity to see dramatic underwater vistas generally reserved for snorkelers and scuba divers! On this glass-bottom boat tour, a wide variety of fish and other sea creatures can be seen below your boat’s clear, glass bottom. You’ll cruise over Florida’s beautiful reef, the only living coral reef in the continental US and one of the most biologically diverse marine eco-systems in the world. See majestic Elkhorn coral and eerie brain coral, sturdy in appearance yet fragile and vulnerable, as they stand still while more than 300 species of fish and other sea life swim around the reef, completing the colorful seascape. During the trip, your experienced captain and crew will provide commentary about the reef and will point out some of its most interesting marine creatures. The boat’s glass bottom provides continuous viewing for all passengers. Upgrade to the sunset cruise to complement your underwater sightseeing with the gorgeous Key West sunset. As you watch the sun slowly disappear beyond the horizon, sip on Champagne and soft drinks (included).

They text me that the reef was cancelled but they would go to the gulf. Could get a full refund I should have. We drove 2 hours for the trip so decided to see what the gulf had. Some sponges, that’s all. No fish, or dolphins. Not worth the money. I would suggest not going if

Hi Carrie P, Thank you for taking the time to review your trip with Fury. We are glad to hear you did enjoy the pleasant boat ride and especially appreciate your recognition of our hard working staff. When Mother Nature is not cooperating, we still do our best to provide a quality trip for our guests. If we think the experience would be uncomfortable or there is not much to see, we will cancel the trip. When the weather is still fair we will amend the trip and give guests the opportunity to cancel for a full refund, as was in your case. We always want to be transparent with our guests to avoid disappointment but please understand, weather is out of our control, as is the marine life and where exactly it will pop up! There will always be more plentiful marine life at the Reef and while we make every effort to take guests to the Reef, it is not alway possible when it is windy. Typically there is still much to see on the Gulfside- dolphins are more commonly seen on this side in fact! We do wish we could control where the fish and other marine life decide to make an appearance and do our best to take guests to these spots, however, they migrate and while we are always hopeful, there will be times there are fewer fish. We hope you will come back under better weather conditions and give us the opportunity to truly exceed your expectations!

Unfortunately we weren’t able to go to the Atlantic reef due to weather. The captain decided to go to a reef in the gulf. They respectively offered to let us get off for a refund before the cruise if we desired but we chose to stay on. The cruise itself was nice but the reef

First, a disclaimer: the captain clearly explained that choppy waves on the Atlantic side led to the decision to cruise to the gulf side. Green water vs blue; coral versus barrier reef. The ride out and back was splendid: I appreciated the smooth waters. My disappointment was

Hi jeanapratt, Thank you for taking the time to review your trip with Fury. While we are glad you enjoyed the cruise and felt the captain was transparent about the lack of visibility that day, we do regret you felt this was a two star trip based on weather. There will always be more plentiful marine life at the Reef and while we make every effort to take guests to the Reef, it is not alway possible when it is windy. Typically there is still much to see on the Gulfside- dolphins are more commonly seen on this side in fact! We do wish we could control where the fish and other marine life decide to pop up and do our best to take guests to these spots, however, they migrate and while we are always hopeful, there will be times there are fewer fish. We hope you will come back under better weather conditions and give us the opportunity to truly exceed your expectations!

We we on the 2:00 excursion to enjoy the warmth of the day. The trip out was a little bumpy but easily doable. Just as we got near the ref a school of dolphin decided to join us and put on quite a show. We live in Coastal Florida so we see a lot of dolphin but these dolphin
