Great time even though we couldn’t hit the primary snorkeling spot, Sombrero Reef, due to high winds. Pirate’s Cove wasn’t super colorful but we still saw all sorts of marine life. Experienced snorkelers might not be satisfied though. My kids had a blast.

I always say you have to be a patient snorkeler to truly enjoy Pirates Cove. So much to see, but much of it is camouflage. Glad the kids enjoyed themselves and some family memories were made here in the Keys with Spirit.

In the last 10 years, I’ve been snorkeling with Spirit to Sombrero Lighthouse four times. Always impressed with seeing probably hundreds of different kinds of fish (to include barracuda and sand shark) and beautiful corals, jellyfish and anemones. I felt as if I was swimming...More

Great excursion for all ages. Saw beautiful sea life. The boat ride is comfortable, short and relaxing. The captain was informative and helpful. The Goliath Grouper under the boat was a highlight.

So cool you saw the grouper. She likes to hang out under our boat for some reason. We truly have a gem right in our backyard. We are very lucky.

Captain Pips has a wonderfully knowledgeable and laid back captain and first mate that made it easy to enjoy. We ended up going to Parate's Cove, which was the fall back from the reef. They expressed concern that going to the reef would be too...More

The reef is great and yes sometimes the winds are a little strong and make the waters rough. Hopefully the kids enjoyed it and want to do it again? Thanks for the review, we appreciate your business.

Very friendly and laid back people. The weather that day was not the best, but we still went to Sombrero Reef, one of the best place to snorkel in the Keys. The quality of the equipment provided (Mask, snorkel and fins) was better than expected.

Only service dogs with proper paperwork. Most guest prefer that no dogs are on a boat with them. You can rent a boat and take dogs with you on the rental boats.
