Tour Details

What you'll see & do:
Depart the island of Key West and Enjoy a day of sightseeing along the Overseas Highway. Explore the natural splendor and historical man-made wonders of the Florida Keys. Revel in the magnitude of the original Seven Mile bridge as we traverse the modern 7-mile replacement. Once the longest bridge in the world and the 8th Wonder of the World, the original is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.​

Experience the National Key Deer Wildlife Refuge, where you might get lucky and see an alligator, a turtle, or an elusive bird species in their natural habitat at the Blue Hole. As we explore the refuge, we keep a vigilant lookout for the endangered Key Deer, miniature deer that live only on Big Pine Key. 

Enjoy an included lunch at Bahia Honda State Park and walk out on the Old Bahia Honda Bridge​.

Explore Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters in Marathon, learn about and interact with our local marine life. ​

At Aquarium Encounters, we embark on a short orientation and sign in for our optional encounters. Pet the stingrays, view the 200,000 gallon reef aquarium, get up close to four different species of sharks and a giant grouper, visit with the resident iguanas and tortoises, feed local tarpon ($3 cash) that have made their home here at the aquarium. Ask questions from professional marine biologists, check out the reef fish, starfish, horseshoe crabs, octopuses, and baby rays. Enjoy your free time to roam around and visit with the local marine life.
