Bring your Boat

All Around Boater

Sometimes we bring our boat down, and other times we do not just because of the hassle factor. There's a lot of good things that you can do without having your own boat starting with the Princess Glass Bottom Tour. Take a Glass Bottom Boat tour on the princess. Open daily and located on us highway one at mile marker 100, at the Holiday Inn docks. When it's Time to get Wet you can go out on the QuickSilver Reef Snorkel. What a neat chance to get out on a catamaran, and a fifty footer! The loading docks are located next to the Holiday Inn just off the Overseas Highway. With children I would consider doing the Dolphin Encounter, but it's a little pricey. Dolphins are just a small part of a day down here on the water. This was a sure fire way to impress our children, but really it by far got to us adults too! If you don't have young kids and you're gonna go out and do some scuba diving then I would recommend Snapper Ledge. It is one of the really cool dive spots off Key Largo that get raving reviews. Pick a nice day and head out for a special Underwater experience.
