Our Two Stop Eco-Excursion is our “do it all” eco-adventure. We start this adventure aboard our new 32 foot backcountry excursion boat we call Reef Geek. The Reef Geek will serve as the Mothership as we snorkel the beautiful wilderness patch reefs and then load up paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkel gear and head to what locals call the “back country”.
On the way our eco-guide will explain the intricacy of a nearshore tropical ecosystem with all the enthusiasm and wonder of the Discovery Channel. We begin with a patch reef snorkel where our guides escort you on a beautiful underwater safari. After at lease an hour in the water we’ll pack up and head for the beautiful wilderness area far from the crowded tourist areas of Key West. Once there we’ll get our watercraft of choice, load em up with gear, and spend the next hour exploring a nearshore tropical eco-system. We’ll snorkel patch reefs, paddle through backcountry lakes, perhaps even explore a mangrove tunnel. There will be plenty of time for snorkeling, easy paddling, and nature watching.
Maybe we’ll see a bonnet head shark or perhaps a spotted eagle ray. We’re sure to see several of the local and migratory shore birds and perhaps hear the call of the Osprey. All the while, your guide is there to answer questions and share the incredible story of the nature around us.
Once back at the Reef Geek, we’ll relax on her large aft deck and share stories of all the exciting wildlife we saw while enjoying fresh fruit, healthy snacks, and ice cold bottled spring water. If you’re up for it, we can even enjoy an afternoon swim off Reef Geeks easy boarding aft deck. The Reef Geek is equipped with a full bathroom, fresh water shower, and enough privacy to change out of a wet bathing suit. On the way home we’ll travel in style, enjoying the 360 view from the Reef Geeks ample deck or, if you’d like a more cozy spot, inside her large and accommodating main pilot house.
