I’d say this is the best part of my Key West vacation.

It doesn’t get any better than the backcountry safari. Everything you need to enjoy the trip has been thought of. From the food, drinks, to activities – it’s all you can ask for and more! I really like that they included coral and shipwreck exploration on this tour because I’ve been meaning to do that for a long time! Overall, I’d say this is the best part of my Key West vacation.

This mangrove tour is incredibly amazing!
Russell B, Aug 2019
The backcountry was a bit rough but exciting. So if you are looking for a tour that is beyond those “touristy” spots, this trip would be perfect for you. Get ready to kayak, snorkel, and sail around. You’ll see a lot of great scenery and have a good time. Highly recommended by me!

The kayaking and snorkeling trip was such a beautiful experience.
Michaela W, Aug 2019
My partner and I had such a good time. The mangrove islands were fascinating and the water here at Key West was so blue and clear. Sailing has always been something I wanted to do and this trip gave me a chance to do just that. So I would definitely recommend this package to anyone who want a day full of fun-filled activities. It’s an experience you won’t forget.

This is probably one of the best packages you can find here.
Happy Tourist, Aug 2019
I’d recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in having a day full of fun and exploration at Key West. This is probably one of the best packages you can find here. Everything was organized so you won’t have any hassles at all. The food was tasty, and drinks were available for the guests. But what is a “backcountry safari” without some adventure? You’ll get heaps of that on this tour as well. Some activities you should expect include sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking. If you decide to book this tour, take your friends or partner with you – they will have a good time as well.

It offered excellent value for money
Brendan B, Aug 2019
You won’t regret going on this trip, it offered excellent value for money! The day starts off with sailing then you get a guided to go kayaking and snorkeling. I really thank the crew for bearing with me, they are very nice and patient. Then afterwards, you get to explore patches of reefs, wrecks, and other interesting things underwater. There is much to see and explore. The day is capped off with sailing back. You’ll have a power-packed day when you go on this tour.

This is the absolute best thing you should try out in Key West.
Tucker, Aug 2019
This is the absolute best thing you should try out in Key West. I’ve never imagined finding such a gem here. The backcountry safari is an exciting trip as you get to explore wrecks and patch reefs. I feel like an explorer discovering new things. The 6.5 hours allocated for this tour feels like it’s over too early. Time just flies when you’re having fun. I’d give this a 10-stars if I can.. Yes, it was that good!

Everything went well during this tour.
Butch B, Aug 2019
Everything went well during this tour. The sun was out, the weather was great, and the staff was very accommodating. The only thing that gets to me is that I felt the sailing part of the trip took so long, I wanted to snorkel more to see the marine life. With that said though, my partner certainly had no complaints. She was enjoying the sail and was constantly taking pictures of the scenery. It really depends on your personality whether you would enjoy this trip or not.
