Take a ride to the Great White Heron National Refuge (approximately 5 miles from Key West) onboard our 27′ Catamaran. We offer the only guided kayak tours in CLEAR kayaks. This portion lasts approximately 1 hour. Last, but not least, snorkeling! We have a plethora of spots all to ourselves! Coral reefs, sponge gardens, and shipwrecks!
We start our trip in a motorized Catamaran. We choose this vessel in order to be able to reach spots that others could not in their half-day trips. Our competitors rely on the wind to get you where you need to be - which is slow and dependant upon the weather. You'll spend more time kayaking and snorkeling on our tours.
Once we get to our location we'll put the Kayaks in the water, allowing you to paddle around in the beautiful waters surroudning the Refuge. You'll encounter the oceanlife which makes Key West famous. You'll also have the chance to put on a mask and snorkel, leaving your kayak for some of the best snorkeling in the Keys.
Clearly Unique Charters offers 2 different kayak trips in Key West.
Not many people are familiar with the idea of a Clear Kayak. Imagine a Glass Bottom Boat - but in kayak form. While paddling around the Refuge you'll be able to see the fish and other wildlife as they pass underneath your kayak. We are the only Kayak company on Key West to offer guided Kayak tours in these unique, clear kayaks.
Kayaking through the calm waters of the Refuge is very easy, and almost anyone of any age can easily navigate through the mangroves and open water. If you need assistance, we're there to help.
Once we're in the Refuge and settled in, feel free to hop out of your kayak, put on a snorkel, mask, and fins - and snorkel in the shallow, warm waters. You'll encounter all kinds of widlife. Whether it is just fish, or sometimes even a manatee or small shark, you'll be able to experience the beauty of the waters of Key West.
Never snorkeled before? No worries! Our staff will assist you in any way that we can. Not only is snorkeling very easy to get the hang of, it is also a lot of fun! Allow our professional guides to help you master snorkeling in only a very short time!
Our Kayaking Tours in Key West start at 231 Margaret Street, in Key West. Once you're facing the water with your back to Turtle Kraals Restaurant where the corner meets public restroom look for Dock D it is not marked well but it is the dock with a boat called Echo Catamaran if the boat isn't there-there is a large banner with their name visible they are the first boat on the dock we are the last.
We limit our Kayak Tours to only 6 guests per trip. We often sell out, so don't delay in booking your Kayak Tour.
