We had never snorkeled the Keys before, and were expecting "nice" but not WOW. Turns out, the Sombrero Reef had every bit the excitement and variety of fish that we had seen in the Caribbean. And swimming with several carpet-sized spotted eagle rays was the icing on the cake!
The water was clear, as we were treated to waves and waves of colorful fish. What a fantastic feeling to be swimming among them, and the Spirit crew gave us plenty of time to do just that. We've been on other snorkel excursions that included spinnaker rides, meals on board, and stops at tiny islands, but this one was all about the snorkeling and we loved it. I believe we must have had at least an hour in the water, giving us ample time to really explore this glorious reef. Truth is, we could have stayed there all day, but I guess you have to dry off sometime.
Thank you, Dan and Donna, for your welcoming spirit and for cluing us in on what makes the reef off of Marathon so special. We would definitely do this tour again.
