Online PR News – 13-April-2010 – – Key West, FL -- Key West Snorkeling Company has introduced to its lineup of quality services a new line of tours for visitors to Key West. Now, visitors to the Company's family of websites can find quality information, photos, and booking info on the much-beloved Key West dolphin tour made popular in the past several years by an increase in those wanting to book eco tours of the island.
Dolphin tours are billed as Eco Tours since boats approach the dolphins in the wild but do not swim with them or otherwise disturb them. As travelers to Key West and other fragile islands become more aware of the impact of tourism on the coral reef and the marine life that exists around it (including dolphins), they are more apt to book tours which highlight nature but which don't disturb nature's creatures and their habitat. Other Key West tours which fall under the category of eco-adventure are kayaking, bicycling, and stand up paddling, among others. These activities don't involve very much oil, gas, or pollutants and allow the adventurer to quietly absorb what Key West and the natural habitat have to offer.
While other types of activities on the water follow guidelines to protect the natural resources of Key West, Dolphin tours offer the best of both worlds. Guests are taken on an adventure where they travel with their guide to areas of the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. On the way, they may see all kinds of exciting things on the water, and they may get to go snorkeling as well, if they choose such a trip. However, the tours to see dolphins and do some snorkeling use far less resources than Key West fishing charters, for example. To successfully fish, boats usually have to travel greater distances than dolphin tours. Dolphins live quite close to the island of Key West, and the tour operator doesn't have to go more than a few miles to find the pods for his or her guests. The main reef for fishing is six miles from Key West. Many styles of Key West fishing involve trolling, which means motoring for hours sometimes, at very slow speeds and dragging lures behind the boat. This is part of the reason it will cost you a bit more to book a Key West fishing trip than it will to go on a Dolphin tour.
