Owner description: Wild dolphin & Shallow water snorkel day trips - Champagne Celebration Sunset Sailing - Private Charters for the entire group, or just a few! It's always upscale on this beautiful 28 seat sailing catamaran because of quality controls - like 14 maximum on public trips, up to 19 on Private. Join our Wild Dolphin, Snorkel & Sailing Adventure day trip to visit Wild Dolphins in the shallow waters off Key West, Snorkel reefs, wrecks and giant sponge gardens (wherever it's best) and enjoy some great Sailing too. Top quality snacks, fruit, soft drinks, beers and wines are always included free on Catamaran Echo. Our Key West Sunset & Moet Cruise includes only the best of the best served on the water - Champagne, 7 premium Wines, 3 top Beers and our famous Gourmet Cheese Buffet. Even better - Moet & Chandon Champagnes are available as an upgrade, and at wholesale prices, but only to our guests. It's nice to know that you'll only be served the best, while sailing into the Key West sunset.

What a perfect way to spend the first day of summer! We went on the 9 am snorkeling and wild dolphin encounter. After a beautiful boat ride out to the dolphin playground, we spent about 45 minutes watching the dolphins in their natural habitat. Then we went to the snorkeling spot and spent about an hour snorkeling in clear, calm water. I saw the most fish and different varieties of fish than I had seen on any other snorkeling trip. The boat ride back to the harbor was delightful. There was plenty of shade on the boat, plus there was an area up front for the sunbathers. The Echo takes a maximum of 14 people or you can book a private tour. Our captain, Graham and first mate, Niki were awesome; very attentive, helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable.

We are loyal to the Echo for a reason! The small size of the group makes for an intimate and engaging sailing experience. Captain Riego and first mate Marissa did an outstanding job with the dolphin watching and snorkeling at Sting Ray city!!

We did serval trips like this during our stay in Key West but Dolphin Echo is really the best of all. The captain and his crew having a great knowledge about the ocean and share/show this on a awesome way.

We saw many dolphins during the tour. The captain exactly knows how he can find a large amount of them and how he can play with them without distrusting their way of living.

The maximum size of the group isn't so huge as by the other companies, on the boat was a very informal relaxed atmosphere and the crew keep us well cared.

When we are in Key West again we definitely like to enjoy this trip again. We can recommend anybody to deny other offers and enjoy this one!!

Had the best time with Graham and Nikki. All we could have hoped for! We found dolphins, snorkeled, and drank the day away. Was absolutely perfect.
