Communing with Marine Life in Florida

8 of 11

Operator: Sierra Club

Your base for the “Sea Kayak and Snorkel the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas” trip is, fittingly, an island beach house in the Gulf of Mexico. Kayak through mangrove tunnels in a bird-filled park, visit Key West for Fantasy Fest (a Halloween festival that rivals Mardi Gras), and snorkel among orange and yellow coral, purple sea fans, and parrot fish. You’ll also visit Dry Tortugas National Park, a cluster of coral reef islands and sand banks 60 miles west of Key West. Best of all, the fall departure comes at the tail end of hurricane season, when the weather’s cooler and the crowds are gone.

Cost: $1,795 per person, seven days.
