Snorkeling for Beginners and Experienced Snorkelers
The Passage Key Dolphin Tours snorkeling excursions are suited for everyone. Whether you have gone snorkeling before or not, we can take you to the best places near Anna Maria Island to get up close and personal with the natural aquatic wildlife.
Our beginning snorkeling sites do not require any fins. We will take you to shallow waters that are easy enough to swim in. Enjoy finding sand dollars and fighting conch shells in their natural habitat.
For experienced snorkelers, we travel to Egmont Key and snorkel the ruins of Fort Dade. There you’ll see the submerged historical structures of batteries Burchstead and Page, which often host corals, tunicates, sponges and many fish species.
About The Boat
We cruise the waterways in a 2020, Regal 26 OBX and with only 6 passengers there is tons of space to lounge around enjoying the sun and sights. Most tours operate fishing boats or pontoon boats, we use a luxury bowrider with a large shaded ultralounge for you to relax and a onboard restroom for those long days on the water. For those wanting sun the 26 OBX has oversized bow seating and a low-to-the-water swim platform which wraps around the outboard making it easier to enjoy activities at the sandbar or Key.
We craft our schedules to ensure you make the best memories with us at Passage Key Dolphin Tours. The best time to go snorkeling may depend on the season and the weather during your preferred date. You’ll also need to keep the tour details in mind so that you’re prepared when the day comes.

What People Are Saying About Passage Key Dolphin tours
We had a fabulous time with Captain Bruce and his lovely wife Keiko! Both were great with our kids, and very knowledgeable of the area. We loved hearing his stories, snorkeling off Egmont Key in the ruins of Fort Dade, and just hanging out. His equipment is top-notch and clean, and you can’t argue with the value! Worth every penny.
Captain Bruce provides the experience of a lifetime. The kids can’t stop talking about the dolphins – and the snorkeling! We went with a half-day private tour AM.
This is the experience you want to give your loved ones they will remember forever. Captain Bruce is extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
Booking was easy — just make sure to book early as dates fill up quickly! We went for the dolphins this time, but I think maybe a relaxing day in the sun near Passage Key with friends is a good next trip with Passage Key Tours!
Had the best morning exploring the island with family thanks to Captain Bruce Adamo. This was the one activity that my son requested during our stay and our time on the boat exceeded our expectations. The boat was clean and comfortably fit the six of us. I 100% recommend then, and we will absolutely be booking again in the future.
