See The Barrier Reef
Home to the only living coral reef in North America, the waters of the lower keys are part of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Through the looking glass of a Key West glass floor boat, this remarkable ecosystem unfolds before your eyes.
Brightly colored tropical fish and sea creatures of every imaginable shape and size swim with playful sea turtles and graceful rays. Starfish and conch lie scattered across the sandy bottom as reef sharks and barracuda cruise silently above. Looking down on it all, you can’t help but marvel at Mother Nature’s brilliant handiwork. Key West Glass Bottom Boat truly a marvel.
Not far from Key West lies the third largest barrier reef in the world. It’s a biosphere that’s as fragile as it is beautiful, and several steps have been taken to protect it. Snorkelers and scuba divers are prohibited from touching the living coral. Reef-safe sunscreens sold in local stores are formulated without chemicals that harm the reef’s vulnerable plant population.
Shallow Water Access
Furthermore, only certain boats are allowed close to the reef. Fortunately, with their shallow draft hulls, even the largest Key West glass bottom boats are able to drift on the surface without disturbing the delicate balance of life below.
Saving the reef for future generations is a labor of love in Key West. Environmental studies routinely measure the reef’s health and size. Fish populations are estimated, water temperatures and salinity levels recorded, and much more. It’s because of efforts like these that glass bottom boat rides continue to be such wonderful experiences.
Not all Florida keys glass bottom boats are 65 feet long and carry a hundred people. Call Key West Charter Boat and we’ll be happy to lay out all of your choices.

Private Charters Equal Close Encounters
If you want to get up close and personal with nature, a smaller Key West glass bottom boat—one that can access shallower water, take you to hidden coves and explore secluded beaches—is the way to go. In addition to the captain, these boats carry up to six passengers and can be booked by the seat or chartered exclusively for your own private group.
Through their looking glass floors, fish feel close enough to reach out and touch. So try it! Snorkeling gear is provided on many of the smaller boats. If you’re interested in taking an eco-tour through backwaters and mangrove islands, knowledgeable guides are more than happy to oblige. Morning and afternoon trips leave from several departure points around Key West and take about three hours.
Custom Charter Durations
Private charters are available for trips lasting a few hours to a full day. By hiring out the whole boat, you’re in control of where you go and what you do. If you love dolphins—and who doesn’t—ask the captain to take you to one of Key West’s several dolphin playgrounds. These shallow-water areas are gathering points where Bottlenose dolphin routinely come to play. It’s not uncommon to see pods of 10 or 20 frolicking together on a Key West glass bottom boat.
While protection regulations prohibit boats from approaching these magnificent mammals, there’s a good chance they’ll approach you. Bottlenose dolphins are not only smart, but they’re also very curious creatures. So don’t be surprised if you suddenly spot one gliding beneath the viewing area of your glass bottom boat. It’s a thrill you’ll never forget.
Tropical Underwater Beauty
The waters of the Florida keys have more shipwrecks per square mile than nearly any other place in the United States. A number of the wrecks were intentionally scuttled to form artificial reefs, while others simply had an unlucky day and ended up on the bottom.
Lucky for you, some wrecks around Key West lie in shallow water and can be easily viewed through the floor our Key West glass bottom boat. It’s like having a window on history right at your feet. For an even closer look, drop anchor and jump overboard with mask and snorkel. The artificial reef is teaming with sea life.
