Fish are an elusive prey, fleeing into reefs to evade anglers and spontaneously sprouting legs to run away from Charles Darwin. Track down slippery targets with today’s Groupon for a tour from Sail Fish Scuba in Key Largo. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get a three-hour guided snorkeling tour of the reef (a $75 value).
- For $60, you get a three-hour breath-hold spearfishing tour or reef-fishing tour (a $135 value). Guests must bring a valid fishing license.<p>
Sail Fish Scuba’s intrepid staff guides patrons across the sapphire waters of Key Largo’s natural reefs and leaps into the water with them from the sun-soaked decks of a fleet of boats. On the guided snorkeling tour, staffers splash into Key Largo’s warm waters along with guests to highlight the reef’s colorful depths and lively fauna. Sea plants wave in gentle currents and sunken wreckage flaunts seaweed-draped history as guests propel themselves along the shimmering surface with flippered feet. Throughout the tour, guides snap approximately 100 digital souvenir photos above and beneath the water, allowing patrons to remember meetings with famous fish long after autographs wash away.
The spearfishing tour begins in the classroom, where Captain Elmo, a former Coast Guard captain, reviews fishing procedures and imparts breath-holding techniques, which can also be utilized if guests need to blend in with Smurfs. The three-hour charter stops off at two locations teeming with undersea life. Under Captain Elmo’s supervision, guests stalk soon-to-be sushi through intricate coral colonies as translucent jellyfish glide by and fish schools expand and contract with kaleidoscopic beauty. After securing a haul of piscean prey, guests return to the dock, where Captain Elmo cleans and cooks fish. Patrons can opt for a reef-fishing tour rather than the spearfishing outing to remain dry and safe from the show tunes hummed by marine biologists.

Sail Fish Scuba owners Chris and Jennifer Kerr want their clients to be able to do it all, exploring the water above and below with the necessary equipment, skills, and know-how. Beginner and advanced scuba divers can begin or further their underwater educations, or head out on one of the guided reef and wreck dives in a number of locales. Snorkeling outings are ideal for more casual explorers, as no extensive training is needed for open-water dives, and guides snap photos of participants during the trip that they can show to all their envious camel friends. Other outings include guided kayak tours, or leisurely boat rides through the mangrove trees.
