If you are seeking to make this year's Key West vacation one to truly remember, do not miss your chance of going on the Island Ting adventure! The Island Ting takes twenty Key West visitors on board a luxurious twenty-foot sailing catamaran out to the protected wildlife areas in the Gulf of Mexico. Combining sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking, this full-day excursion showcases the most awe-inspiring natural habitats that surround the southernmost island of Key West Florida.
The six hour journey starts at 10AM. Our guests board the cozy and spacious sailing catamaran for an easy ride out to the coral reef systems just a few miles off the coast of Key West. Guests are treated to a scrumptious breakfast of fresh fruits, quiches, pastries, and fruit juices. This is the perfect way to start your unforgettable day out to the back country. The excitement starts once the Island Ting reaches one of many areas of coral reef formations that form the core of the Key West backcountry. Here, guests will be able to swim in the crystal clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Using our complimentary snorkeling equipment, guests will have the opportunity to see first-hand the teeming colorful world of the coral reef gardens. Here, dozens of marine species make their home and are extremely active during this time of the day.
After the unforgettable Key West snorkeling adventure, it's time for kayaking! These kayaks provide our guests with the chance to come right up to the beautiful and mysterious mangrove islands. These mangrove islands are a truly stunning sight to behold in person. Mangroves are unique trees that only grow in tropical areas such as the Florida Keys. Kayaking in the calm waters of the Gulf is an easy, fun, and enriching experience. The Island Ting is the kind of trip designed for Key West visitors who have a spirit of adventure. After all the fun of snorkeling and kayaking, guests will also be provided with a full buffet lunch complete with sandwich meats and cheese, fried chicken, peeled shrimp, salad, and chocolate chip cookies. Guests also will be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy our complimentary beer, wine, sodas, and homemade sangria.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Island Ting is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
