Observation des dauphins guidée par un biologiste et snorkeling

Key West, États-UnisDans la collection Animaux sur Airbnb

Expérience avec des animaux organisée par Billy

4 heures, Proposée en Anglais

Au programme

You will meet me at my electric catamaran, Squid, under our HONEST ECO sign. If you do not see a time or date that works for you let me know! I can probably figure something out.
We will depart from the dock located at the Historic Seaport. We will then head out on the water to an area that I know which provides a year round home for about 200 wild Bottlenose Dolphins.
This is my moment to share the wonders of these marine mammals with you, while always operating my vessel in a manner that is safe and respectful of the dolphins and their need for space. With the right know-how I can usually find dolphins in under an hour and in calm waters. After observing the dolphins many different behaviors from the boat we will head to one of my favorite spots to snorkel with sponges, coral heads or a patch reef. I will take you to the best place with the best visibility that day. I'll be your guide, leading you around a calm snorkeling spot and point out animals that make our ecosystem unique and answer any questions that you have.
Other things to note
Check in at the HONEST ECO boat Squid.
The maximum number of guests I have on board is usually around 15 guests. I can take up to 24 guests on a private charter.

I founded and own HONEST ECO. With Kentucky bluegrass roots and a B.S. in Biology, I found a world with a blue sea too alluring to ignore. I arrived to Key West in 2005. Now I have 10+ years of experience studying Biology and being on the water in Key West with the dolphins. I now own a small business, HONEST ECO, with my wife and 2 young kids. we are trying to make a big impact by educating and leading by example. I worked with David Walworth, an MIT educated Naval Architect and Principal Engineer known for his high efficiency catamaran designs to help design and engineer the perfect boat for my guests and the environment. The family, moved west and spent the next year and a half of our lives building SQUID, from scratch! I'm very passionate about being respectful to the dolphins and the environment

Captain Jesse and on board biologist Jackie were awesome. Experts in dolphin and sea life. Saw dolphins of course, and a young one with mom and dad. Lots of things to see while snorkeling too. The experience was great and we always felt very safe too. We will do this adventure again.

This was the highlight of our trip. The tour guides were super knowledgable and super friendly. We learned so much about the keys, dolphins and ocean life. It was a super well organized trip and they had fresh veggies and hummus and fruit! 100% recommend for couples and families! We will defiantly be back:)

Amazing experience, 100% recommended. Jaclyn knows so much about everything related to marine biology and she was so easy to talk to about anything, which made the trip even more enjoyable!!! If anybody is thinking about doing a tour to do some snorkeling, you cannot go wrong with this one, plus, I love how private it is and the fact it doesn’t have so many people on board making the whole experience even more enjoyable

The staff was wonderful. However, the advertising led you to believe you would see dolphins but all we saw were a couple of babies in the water. They never came up. The snorkeling was awful and we basically saw nothing. No pretty colored fish except for two and everything else including coral was gray. Very disappointed in this trip.

This was an awesome experience!!! The staff were so knowledgeable and eager to share information/answer questions. We saw many dolphins. We saw sea turtles swimming as the boat moved in between locations. The snorkeling was easy and fun. The snacks were delicious, fresh, and plentiful. Would do it again.

Very fun experience! We got to see a lot of dolphins and our guides were very knowledgeable about the ocean life we saw. It was a very relaxing experience but we learned a ton. Would highly recommend!
