We designed and built SQUID from scratch to ensure our guests, and the animals, have the best wildlife experience possible.
Resident Wild Dolphins
The shallow, warm waters surrounding the lower Florida Keys provide an excellent year round habitat for around 200 Dolphins.
Our Coastal Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins have never been fed or trained, which allows us to observe the natural behaviors of wild dolphins.
“The best way to see a fish, is to become a fish.” -Jacques Cousteau
We built SQUID to access protected, calm and clear snorkeling spots so that our crew can point out the most wildlife as they guide you on your snorkel.
• Quality Cressi Snorkel Gear that works
• Patient Instruction and Assistance, especially great for Novice and Beginner Snorkelers
One of the oldest Wildlife Refuges in the country, KWNWR was established by Teddy Roosevelt in 1908, to protect a crucial habitat and breeding ground for birds, turtles and other wildlife. The refuge’s size is 300 square miles and only 1% of that is comprised of the mangrove islands, yet their canopies provide shelter for 250 species of birds, their trunks house the mangrove crabs and their roots exhibit a microcosm of life as juvenile species, both prey and predator, begin their lives here.
We are grateful for many things at Honest Eco, but nothing compares to our gratitude for the people who work to deliver on our promises and work towards our Company Vision - day in and day out!
Crew training starts on land with research and mission alignment before moving onto the water where we hone our seamanship skills and work to become as effective as possible at delivering on Honest Eco’s Purpose.
Our crew are expected to be continuously learning and pushing Honest Eco to be as environmentally responsible as possible.
While Watching Dolphins, the loudest noise Honest Eco’s electric boat makes comes from her water cooling pumps (and we can turn those off).
Introducing SQUID! One of the first Lithium Ion Battery, Electric Passenger boats in the USA.
We worked with David Walworth, an MIT educated Naval Architect and Principal Engineer known for his high efficiency catamaran designs to help design and engineer the perfect boat for our trips. We then packed up the family, moved west and spent the next year and a half of our lives building SQUID, from scratch!
With a great location at the Historic Seaport in Old Town Key West, our guests can arrive at SQUID‘s departure location by walking, biking, driving or taxi.
We recommend renting a bike while visiting as parking in old town can be tough, but if you are getting around by car, there is a convenient and close-by pay parking lot on Caroline Street (across the road from Pepe’s).

SQUID‘s slip is located on the seawall in front of the public restrooms, in between the Waterfront Brewery and Turtle Kraals restaurant.
