  • Biscayne National Underwater Park
    True to its name, more than 95% of Biscayne National Underwater Park is covered by water, resulting in a submerged, verdant landscape. In the shallows of Biscayne Bay, explorers can catch sight of waving fields of underwater grass as well as the occasional manatee, sea turtle, or wild submarine. Kayaks paddle out to the more than 30 islands dotting the park’s expanse, reaching destinations such as a 1930s lighthouse. Venturing out from the shore filled with lush mangrove forests, snorkelers dive into living reefs to see fish and turtles gluing the coral together.

  • Hover Tour
    Hovercrafts are never short on usefulness. The US Navy uses them for transportation, captains in Australia, Asia, and England use them as ferries, and near Alaska they often glide over ice between oil rigs. For Captain Guven Sen, hovercrafts are useful for tours of Florida's coastal waterways. He pilots the sleek florescent-yellow Lady Hawke—powered by a 300-horsepower diesel engine, dual axial flow fans, and fixed-pitch duct propellers—at speeds up to 40 knots over shallow waterways and meandering sandbars. Sculpted from durable, lightweight fiberglass, an enclosed hull and cockpit keep passengers safe from getting hit by ocean spray and strongly worded messages in bottles as they glide on an air cushion over the water surface. On each eco-friendly tour, Guven uses a PA system to explain the workings of the craft's engines, point out passing dolphins and protected alligators, and gleefully showcase his machine's tricks. He turns water into a wall of mist as he whips riders through spins and 360-degree turns. On some occasions, passing dolphins have even decided to play with the hovercraft, swimming alongside and under the air cushion and performing tricks in full view of passengers. When not leading tours, Guven leases out his services for private excursions or the occasional music video. Hover Tours' sister company, Dragonflight Hovercraft, recently built another larger, lightweight FRP composite hovercraft as a prototype to one day glide alongside the Lady Hawke.

  • Dolphins Cove
    Like all dolphins, Elvis loves to chase fish, leap into the air, and paint abstract-expressionist artwork. He does, however, need a human to hand him a brush, which is where the Painting with Dolphins program comes in. This is just one of the initiatives at Dolphin Cove that reveals these marine mammals' fascinating behaviors. In a natural lagoon, trainers facilitate human-dolphin relations through encounters such as swimming with, snorkeling beside, or rubbing the belly of Elvis and his cohorts. The dolphins may also regale guests with antics such as sharing their favorite toys or showing off a new behavior. Dolphin Cove's additional services include the Trainer for a Day program and a live webcam, which was an idea Elvis brought from his background in IT.

  • Key Largo Princess
    To take in national parks, sightseers must usually backpack, hike, or drive on endless two-lane roads. It's not every day you can glide over the park in a luxurious yacht, but that's exactly what the Key Largo Princess does. Aboard the 70-foot glass-bottom yacht, sightseers gaze down upon the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, the only underwater state park in the United States and the only park to get Smokey the Bear's unconditional safety approval. Along the way, the yacht sails over the cerulean swells of the Atlantic, offering panoramic views of the Florida Keys. When they're not oohing and aahing over bright tropical fish and an abundance of living coral, passengers can feel the breeze on the deck or relax in the air-conditioned indoor salon with a snack from the sandwich bar.
