The bus drive was okay (I would give one star less). I followed my group because I thought our guide would bring me to the right place, but apparently the rest of the group took their tours somewhere else. I did the dolphin and snorkeling tour with Fury Water Adventures. The boat tour was amazing - I went with Captain Anna and we saw dolphins very close to the island, that’s why she took us out close to the reef snorkeling. After we were done snorkeling we were offered beer, wine, mimosas and sodas (they expect a tip at the end of the tour, but I would have tipped them anyways). We headed back with the bus at 6.15pm and I got off around 10.20pm in Miami Beach.

I almost didn't book this tour because of the negative feedback, but I'm glad I didn't pay attention to that. This was the best tour EVER!!!! I loved everything about it. Marlena and Oscar were excellect guides and were very helpful and knowledgable. Don't listen to the negative comments!!! I would recommend this tour a hundred times over!! When I come back in 6 months I will be booking this tour again!!!

Pro: Day trip to Key West was good. Our travel guide Louis was REALLY courteous, PROFESSIONAL, HONEST and accommodating. The trip was long, but relaxing. The driving was excellent. Overall a very nice experience worth the money. Con: none

Very kind and helpful guide the fury boat ride and snorkeling was a blast

Like it a lot but i would ask for more time in the water snorkeling
