What will I see when I go snorkeling?
The reefs in the Florida Keys are teeming with life. We have over 100 species
of both stony and soft corals. Plus not to mention well over 400 species of fish
and other marine life. You rarely see everything on one trip so the more you
the luckier you are.
Dolphins if spotted are usually on the way out or back from the reef. They love
surf the wake of the boat. Some vendors will make a trip out to what we call the
dolphin playground so that you are pretty sure to see them. Then they take you
to the reef to snorkel. Those vendors are listed under dolphin tours on the left
navigational links. I have never seen a dolphin at the reef.
Turtles can be spotted on the way out and back and if you are lucky at the reef
itself. It by sheer luck to see one of them but they are out there. Rays can be
on the sandy areas around the reef if you look closely when resting they try to
themselves by covering them self with sand. Lobsters and eels are also there
for the most part creature of the night. Unless you are diving down and looking
under ledges you will probably not see them unless a scuba diver disturbs them.
It is not uncommon to see schools of hundreds if not thousands of fish out
Barracuda are very common and they are fascinated by the snorkelers. I do
not to wear anything shiny rings, necklaces or earrings. They seem to draw the
in real close to check them out. They will not bother you but it can be a little
to have something to big that close. Another fish to try and find are parrot
fish very colorful.
What is neat if you spot one is to listen. You can hear them scraping the coral
mouth trying to get the algae off. Now will you see sharks while snorkeling. You
most common one that is spotted is the nurse shark they are found swimming along
bottom. No need to fear they have no teeth like regular sharks more like
There are other sharks that do visit the reef from time to time. Just a couple
a fisherman caught a 12 foot hammer head just off Sand Key. But don't worry to
best of my knowledge no one has ever been bitten. The main advantage is the

Unlike up north where the water is cloudy and they bump into swimmer and take a
or on the west coast were a surfer looks like a turtle from the bottom looking
up. So don't
worry about them. If you are lucky enough to see one just keep an eye on it and
back to the boat, but I have found once you see one within a few minutes they
off. A joke I often tell kids I meet snorkeling for the first time. Is if you
see a shark it is
very simple just bite your brother or sister make them bleed and swim back to
now its their problem. Most all get a kick out of the idea except for the
sibling I told
them to bite. The trick is you just never know what you my see from one trip to
