Great trip! Wonderful staff and amazing experience with snorkeling! Make sure to go on the right side of the boat to snorkel and where the reef is. Bc there is so many fish! Also saw huge crab and stingray!

We had the absolute best time!!! Was a very educational and beautiful experience with our High School graduate, great way to send him off to college. The Capt and First mate(Ray) were very attentive and made our trip one to remember for a lifetime. Thank you to both of them and Cool Key West for sharing adventure with us.Kevin

Though weather interfered with the completion of our tour, the crew was wonderful and we would go back in a heartbeat.

The Tour was organised perfectly, staff was very nice, professional and friendly. Plenty of good food and drinks (sangria was amazing) lots of time to relax on boat nets. The boat was modern, clean and spacious. Kayaking was great, I enjoyed it the most. Great fun squeezing between mangroves. It was my first time ever snorkelling, so I was a little anxious at the beginning but staff was very reassuring,vigilant and always around. There was not much to see under the water though....apart from couple of fish. For the first time I think snorkelling was ok. I enjoyed trip very much. My only suggestion would it is called Eco-Trip, I would expect a recyclable/bamboo or wooden/paper cutlery, plates, cups. Overall experience was great. Highly recommended.

The experience was changed early Saturday morning for a Catamaran. We left our hotel open minded. It turned to be amazing, we had a fantastic captain and crew. Our small children were accommodated with the proper gear for snorkeling which was the highlight of the trip for them - open ocean, shallow reef, beautiful weather! - We had a fantastic kayaking time around a mangrove key and our children saw species of birds, nurse sharks... to later splash and play on a light padded foam laid to float on the open ocean safely close to the boat. The breakfast was very nice, lunch was great as well, open beer bar for adults, water and juice for our little ones! Good music and got very lucky to have a great group of travelers along on the catamaran.

Awesome captain and crew. Very small group on this trip. They made my grandson feel very special. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting a sailing,kayaking and snorkeling trip.
