Enjoy the best Islamorada self-guided eco-adventure locations with Island Adventures. This private sightseeing charter is a great way to spend time exploring the waters in the Florida Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and even have a stop on the Islamorada sandbar or oceanside reefs, if it is too cool or windy to go boating or snorkeling oceanside this is a great option too! Captains help you determine best locations and help with paddle equipment. Captains are typically knowledgeable about wildlife and fauna around Islamorada, but the majority of this nature cruise is self-guided. You are welcome to stay aboard the boat to tour shallow water (dry tour), or use our equipment to paddle, snorkel, or float in tubes when stopping around the Mangrove islands, Founders Park rock wall, or Sandbar.
We pickup at locations VERY near the sandbar and then we enjoy the Keys in any ways that weather and time permits. We ALWAYS go to the sandbar, it’s nice in almost any weather. When weather permits, we have multiple snorkel locations including a shallow water spot out of the wind for those days when we just can’t get to the reef. On days with ideal weather conditions we can hit Alligator Lighthouse or any of our local reefs for snorkeling. After snorkeling during the ride to the sandbar we can hit a few of our local dolphins’ favorite places to hang out, and if we’re lucky play with them in our wake! We can also make a stop at any of the local taverns for a drink, and cruise 2 of the locations in the Netflix series Bloodline! Ultimately we will wrap up the day on the world famous Islamorada Sandbar!
Come enjoy an amazing day on the fabulous waters of the Florida Keys. Our multi-activity sandbar trips include snorkeling, and site seeing, finishing your day on the world famous Islamorada Sandbar. At Island Adventures, our job is your vacation!

Schedule and duration:
We offer 4 and 6 hour trips. Your trip duration will depend on the day and time that you’ve booked. If you’d like to extend your trip we offer that service for an extra fee that can be negotiated on the day of your trip if our scheduling allows for additional time.
