For safety reasons we prefer to use the buddy system. We require 2 people per ski.
CAN CHILDREN RIDE THE JET SKI?
Guests ages 4-13 are not allowed to operate a Jet Ski under any circumstances, but are more than welcome to accompany an adult. Guests 14-15 years of age may operate a Jet Ski with another person on the ski who is at least 18 years of age & meets the required criteria. A parent must be present to sign paperwork at check in. After obtaining a Boater Safety License, guests 16-17 years of age may operate a Jet Ski, when a parent signs paperwork at check in.
Drinking alcohol before operating a jet ski is prohibited. If a guest consumes alcohol before jet skiing you will be denied to operate a Jet Ski. Guests may consume alcohol after the Jet Ski portion of their trip.

We prefer that guests present their Driver’s License but we also accept other forms of photo identification that show your age.

The lunch menu includes a buffet of Turkey & Swiss Sandwiches, Cuban Mix Sandwiches, Veggie & Hummus Sandwiches, Chicken Salad Wraps, Pasta Salad, Key West Cole Slaw and Fresh Baked Cookies.
DO I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SWIM?
Yes. Fury will provide you with snorkel instruction and equipment, but you must know how to swim to participate in any snorkel adventure. We take you about 7 miles offshore of Key West and once in the ocean, there will not be a place for you to touch or stand, while snorkeling. All guests will receive flotation devices for their safety. Fury crew is present to assist in an emergency, but will not be able to solely attend to one party for the duration of the trip. For those unable to swim, we suggest booking a trip aboard our Glass Bottom Boat, where you can see the reef and marine life from the comfort of the boat. Guests are also always welcome to relax and enjoy the amenities aboard our spacious catamarans, during the snorkel portion of any tour.
All participants must sign a liability waiver to participate in snorkeling and other adventures.
WHAT IF I HAVE NEVER BEEN SNORKELING BEFORE?
Our experienced and certified Fury crew will give you detailed instructions as you sail out to the Living Coral Reef. They will go over the best practices and safe snorkel procedures for your day at the reef. Additionally, a crew member will be in the water with you for hands on assistance.
DO YOU PROVIDE WETSUITS?
Wetsuits are available seasonally for a fee of $12 per suit.
HOW LONG IS THE SNORKEL TRIP AND HOW MUCH SNORKEL TIME DO WE GET?
The total snorkel trip time is 3 hours. Guests will enjoy an hour to sun and relax as we sail out to reef, an hour of reef snorkeling, and the last hour to continue sun bathing and relaxing as we sail back to shore.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
Guests should bring a towel & reef safe sunscreen sunscreen. We also recommend an under water camera and a little money to tip the crew!
If you forget to bring any items in your room, we will have items available for purchase at the check-in booth. We do also provide Stream2Sea mineral based reef safe sunscreen on board for you to use free of charge.
DO YOU HAVE LIFE JACKETS FOR CHILDREN?
All guests are provided with Buoyancy Compensators for snorkeling. Life jackets are onboard for everyone in case of emergency.

Each Catamaran has a seated sundeck. There are areas to sit below deck that are completely out of the sun.
ON PARASAIL, DO I GET WET?
If you would like!
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
Fury doesn’t sail in dangerous weather conditions, but a light shower is not a deterrent.
IF SOMEONE WANTS TO COME ON THE TRIP BUT NOT SNORKEL, DOES IT COST LESS?
No, the ticket price is the same for everyone.
CAN I GET THE ONLINE PRICE WITHOUT PAYING ONLINE?
No, online prices are only available online.
