The savvy skippers at Tavernier Dolphin Cruises offer nascent mariners a bevy of educational and scenic nautical tours around Florida Bay. During both cruises, pelagic travelers set sail on a custom-built 40-foot catamaran dubbed Mystic Blue that allows sea legs to sprout from torsos by ensuring a smooth ride and grants peeks at the splashy antics of marine wildlife. The relaxing sunset cruise treats vista-hungry eyes to a blazing golden feast as the sun retreats into the horizon’s watery pocket for a nap and bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Keep ocular orbs peeled for a glimpse of the elusive green flash sometimes visible at the gloaming, or shimmy deep-seated tension out of weary shoulders to the beat of the onboard island music.
Those opting for the eco tour and reef snorkel delve into the fathoms below to explore natural reef sites bustling with shimmering schools of fish and a galaxy of multihued coral. Play aqueous tag with a sea turtle, or practice speaking conversational kraken with a bilingual manta ray during the subaquatic adventure. As Tavernier Dolphin Cruises provides participants with all necessary snorkeling gear, fledgling Cousteaus can leave their flippers and portable treasure chests at home.
