Sea in Autumn through Glass Bottom
But those of you not feeling that blessed might want to keep your Miami to Key West trip short and sweet. Then hop on the 65 foot tall Spirit of Pennekamp, a high speed catamaran that glides across turquoise blue waters through many a flora and fauna giving you a chance to observe the underwater life from a distance. Children love spotting seashells, sharks, elkhorns, turtles, sponges, barracudas, parrotfish, sea horses and stingrays through its vivid glass bottom bars. Get a glimpse of favorite Key West attractions such as the colorful Florida Reef Tract, which though looks sturdy but is actually quite vulnerable.
The glass bottom boat can be closed or open air with comfortable seats. The boat can be of two designs, the modern twin hull or the traditional V-hull. During summers you can hop on a closed glass bottom boat packed with an air conditioner to avoid the scorching sunshine. The best part is that anytime you can jump off the boat into the enticing waters and swim along with the sea dwellers and playful dolphins. A well informed captain will give you an informative eco-tour about the diverse ecosystem that inhabits this wonderland. Watch the mysterious seascape change as you move away from the scenic shoreline of Key West out into the glittering waters into the Gulf of Mexico. A serene glass bottom boat tour provides windows to the stunning underwater reef that this island is famous for.
See and Sing While Kayaking
When the sea has to be traversed more than land, kayaking is a preferred mode of water transportation from Miami to Key West. Key Largo is a premier kayaking destination from where tourists sail off to explore the mangrove ecosystem by paddling through a maze of canals and streams. Glide over lots of shallow water in different shades of blue to discover the prosperous marine flora and fauna abound. Sail through the crystal clear waters as you come across baitfish moving beneath your boats, undulated jellyfish lying in small pools and tiny crabs scampered in muddy waters.
While navigating your motorboat through the flats spot purple corals, sport fish, canary yellow fish, rays, sharks, and an array of tropical birds. Sail through the mostly-isolated white-sand beaches and you might come across a stunning blue heron while it is preying on a slimy yellow water snake. You might see an iguana peering out from the mangroves, red crabs firmly seated on a damp rock, a nurse shark rippling through the otherwise mirror-calm waters. Sail over thick sea grass beds and through narrow tunnels which might have an opening the size of a kid’s bedroom. For beginners usually the kayak is a stable and short sit-on-top with an open cockpit. For overnight trips or longer excursions, longer boats with compartments for storage are preferred. And mother ships are sizable motorboats used for secluded paddles for shuttling to isolated areas.
Escapade Saga on Islamorada
Moving on a Miami to Key West bus you will pass through the ‘Village of Islands’ of Islamorada, home to the highest point above sea level in the Keys.
