There are some really cool places to see here on the waters just off of Key West. Our Eco tours are the best way to see them. Experienced guides that offer the full "Eco" experience, submerging you in the peace and tranquility of the Key West backcountry. Explore areas that will just make you go Ahhhh all from the comfort of our very stable, shallow water accessible boats.
About The Backcountry
The islands that surround Key West are considered the "backcountry". Made up of mostly 3 different species of Mangrove trees most of these backcountry islands are not really islands at all. They are awash at high tide and a mecca for creatures to get their start in the world. A huge ecosystem diverse with species of fish, crustaceans, invertebrates, corals, grasses, rays, sharks, dolphins and turtles.
Nature lovers absolutely LOVE this trip. Our quiet boats are able to sneak right into these natural habitats undisturbed so you can see how life is away from human intrusion.
Bird Watchers are able to enjoy this trip as well with possibilities of seeing all sorts of aquatic bird life. Rookeries for the Frigate, cormorant and the herons. Pelicans and many other sea birds are easily spotted here with the Osprey being the star of the show.
All of this is visible right from the boat - OR - you can use our supplied snorkeling gear to get in and check out the underwater world for yourself. However you would like to view it, its up to you. We will keep you safe and having fun all while learning the base of what makes up all of the Florida Keys and Key West.
