Enjoy the wonders of South Florida’s underwater world with a knowledgeable marine biologist to act as your guide! Peanut Island is one of the best snorkel locations in South Florida as its crystal blue waters provide an aquarium-like experience for snorkelers. Easily accessible via shuttle, the shallow, calm waters surrounding the island are perfect for snorkelers of all ages and abilities. Peanut Island’s artificial reefs are home to a wide variety of colorful reef fish, crabs, sea urchins, brittle stars, sea cucumbers and more! This is an experience that you do not want to miss! We will meet at Riviera Beach City Marina and catch the Peanut Island Shuttle to Peanut Island. Guests will be led to a covered pavilion where a professional marine biologist will give you an engaging overview of the local reef ecosystem. Your discussion will include information about the artificial reef system and pictures of marine life that can be spotted during the snorkel. Following the introduction, we will don our gear and walk to the starting point of our snorkel. Your guide will then direct your snorkel and help you to spot a variety of marine life. After the snorkel, guests will be given the chance to rest and eat their snacks or lunch before returning to the water for a second snorkel tour. Guests will then be escorted back to the Shuttle where we will conclude our experience.
I am the founder of Saltwater Studies, a local marine tour and education company that has been offering tours and educational experiences throughout South Florida for over eight years. My lifelong fascination with the ocean and its creatures led me to pursue both my undergraduate and graduate degree in marine biology as well as certifications in SCUBA and sailing. I now have nearly twenty years of experience in marine science, am a published author and love to dabble in underwater photography and videography. The ocean is my passion and I love introducing people to life beneath the waves in any way possible!
We will be using the Peanut Island Shuttle to transport us from Riviera Beach City Marina to Peanut Island.
Mask and snorkels will be provided by the Peanut Island Shuttle. Flotation devices will be available upon request.
