The reef location depends on you but our captain and crew will advise where they think the best conditions will be for that trip. This is based on their vast experience and being at the reef every day.

Whats included in the John Pennekamp Snorkel Tours

This price includes our attentive and knowledgeable crew and snorkel equipment. All of our crews are specially trained by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary on management and conservation of our Key Largo reefs. Our snorkel equipment is top quality CRESSI equipment. You will be provided with Mask Snorkel and fins. All customers are required to wear a provided safety vest to ensure that you are visible in the water to other boaters.

Our boats have iced water on board for you to fill your water container. If you do not have a water container you are welcome to use our paper cups provided. You can also bring your own party food and drinks, let us know and we will make sure the cooler has plenty of ice!

You can go to any of the great snorkel sites listed on our pages or let us choose where to go in the John Pennekamp State Park.  It takes around 35 minutes to get to the reef. You will get up to 1 hr at each of the snorkel sites.  You can choose the first reef to snorkel at (subject to weather conditions). The Captain will suggest a choice of 2 as your second snorkel location. Boats are not permitted to anchor in the sanctuary specially protected areas and are required to use the mooring balls placed on the reef by the sanctuary. There are times when due to weather or mooring ball availability we may have limited options of somewhere suitable for you to move to for the second snorkel stop but we will do our best and explain the options to you.

Departure times of the Snorkel Tours

Private Snorkel Tours to Pennekamp reef leave from Pilot House marina at 8am and 1pm and return before 12 noon and 4.30pm respectively.  Check in times are 30 mins prior to departure so we can get off the dock early to get the best spots on the reef.

Want to leave a little later or come back earlier? No problem we can arrange this as long as the boat is back on the dock at its normal time!
