PEANUT ISLAND SNORKELING TOUR
WestPalmBeach.com Special Rate!*
west palm beach snorkelingCruise to a man made Island where President Kennedy once had a bomb shelter built. Anchor in shallow water and relax on one of our many floats, snorkel in waist deep water, explore the Island, or just soak up the sun.

This tour is for beginners through advanced and it’s perfect for the kids (age 6 and up). On the east side of Peanut Island, Palm Beach County has created an artificial snorkeling area. Most of which is in 3-6 feet of water! We plan this tour around high tide (which changes everyday, by approximately 1 hour) because that is when you get the best water visibility / clarity and the least amount of current. There is little to no wave action. Guests can expect to see a lot of tropical fish, turtles, rays, starfish and sometimes manatees. Guests can also walk on the island if they wish, there are restrooms and pavilions. Cost of this Tour includes snorkeling equipment, guide, bottled water, and dry snacks. Wet suits rentals are available for $10.00 each. Underwater cameras are available for purchase for $18.00 each. Price for both wet suit rentals and camera purchase are subject to change, therefore, please inquire. Call for schedule – Reservations Required! Duration of trip: Approximately 2.5 hours.
