Explore the fascinating marine world of the coral reef up close and personal with the Snuba Diving excursion. Snuba diving is a one-of-a-kind type of underwater experience that requires no prior certification. With this excursion, we take you deeper into the ocean than we can with our regular Key West snorkeling tours. But the process is just as simple as snorkeling! In fact, we teach you how to use our snuba diving gear right on the boat as we head out to our diving destination! Anyone who is comfortable swimming can go snuba diving! It’s very easy and a whole lot of fun!
This is the only Snuba adventure available in Key West. The experience of snuba diving is much different than snorkeling because you get the chance to fully immerse yourself in the marine habitat, much like you do with scuba diving. Guests participating in the snuba adventure will be swimming at about 12-15 foot depths, right among the coral rock formations and the hundreds of marine creatures who live among the coral. Snuba diving is an excellent way to almost introduce yourself to the world scuba diving, without requiring the extensive instruction or certification. Who knows, if you really love it, you might be on your way to getting an actual scuba certification! Diving locations are chosen daily, and will be determined according to the day's actual weather conditions. We always head to the best possible spots!
Anyone who is at least 8 years of age and a decent swimmer can join us for this one-of-a-kind Key West adventure. SNUBA has been around for several decades and has become one of the top water activities in various tropical destinations throughout the globe. The motto behind snuba is “Go beyond snorkeling”. We here stand firmly behind our snorkeling excursions and are confident that these are some of the absolute best water activities in Key West. But with Snuba, we simply take snorkeling to the next level! Space on our 33-foot Snuba boat are highly limited, so we do encourage you to make reservations as far in advance as you can!

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Key West Snuba Diving is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
