Lately on the blog, I’ve been telling you guys about the new trips we’ve added to our roster. So far we’ve covered the Island Adventure and the Double Dip Snorkel Trip. Today, let’s talk dolphins! It’s always been exciting catching an unexpected glimpse of these playful porpoises while sailing to and from the reef. Although not guaranteed, it’s also not uncommon to spot a pod of dolphins on any Fury Water Adventure. What’s really exciting is that we now have a trip dedicated especially to watching dolphins splash around in the wild in their native habitat- Fury’s new Key West Dolphin Watch & Snorkel Trip.
With our new Dolphin Watch & Snorkel Adventure aboard our new Dolphin Cat, we’ll cruise out through the Gulf of Mexico to the dolphin playground. Here, our expert captains know the best spot to catch sight of these majestic mammals. The blue-green waters of the Gulf are characterized by mangrove islands and shallow sand flats, which are ideal for dolphins nesting and feeding. If you’ve never seen a dolphin in the wild, it’s just something you have to experience for yourself! And if you have, well, you know what I mean! Dolphin sightings never fail to get our passengers on their feet oohing and ahhing as they watch these beautiful creatures.
Once you’ve gotten a good glimpse at dolphins at play, we’ll whisk you to the patch coral reef and sponge gardens of the Gulf of Mexico where you can cool off in the shallow waters and swim with wild abandon just like the dolphins you witnessed! Our crew will get you set up with snorkel equipment so you can discover even more marine animals underwater. Keep your eyes peeled for conch shells, sea urchins, and maybe even a stingray!
If you’re a nature lover and want to learn more about the ocean’s ecosystem firsthand, this is absolutely the trip for you! At Fury, we’re very proud to offer this finally offer this unique experience. See you soon and don’t forget to send us pictures!
