This is a fantastic way to see a beautiful reef! You will not believe the color of the water out here. My kids are afraid of the ocean, so this was the perfect way for them to see everything without having to get in and snorkel. The boat ride is comfortable with plenty of seating inside or out. There is a snack bar that includes gluten free and peanut free foods (yay!). The guide was super knowledgeable about all of the life on the reef. This is our second time doing this tour and it was wonderful.

Very friendly and helpful staff.
Nice reefs, but visibility could have been better. Too much wind in the previous day.

We had a great time on the extended snorkeling tour at Pennekamp. The reefs were beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was very affordable too and we will for sure be doing this again in the future.

We stayed at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park for 5 nights in late March 2018 with our two adult sons. We loved the campsite with pea gravel and ample space for our 30 ft travel trailer, tow vehicle and one car. Having sewer hook up at a state park on the water is fantastic. The only minor negative was the lack of a fire ring at the campsite for camp fires. While there we went kayaking and snorkelling on the coral reef - both were great. Also booked (through Viator) the Champagne and Appetizers sunset cruise in Key West (2 1/2 hr drive each way). Beautiful cruise with great band, food and drink. Bartenders and crew worked hard and were very very friendly and helpful -shout out to Hannah - your the best! Remember, you need to book about a year in advance to get the dates you want.

Easy to check in and get equipment. Great path to follow in Kayaks so you do not get lost. Staff very friendly.
