Enjoy The Wonderful Things To Do in Key West
Besides the glorious sunshine, what is the first thing you think of when you hear the words “Key West?” Water! Water! Water! Whether you seek a thrill, adventure, sport, serenity, exercise, romance, or fun with the kids, our magical little island is jam-packed with water activities for everyone. As you plan your trip to paradise, here are a few water activities to consider adding to your itinerary:
Our sparkling turquoise waters are home to some of the finest fish and seafood in the Atlantic. Throw a line out and perhaps you’ll catch a red snapper, grouper, bonefish, blue marlin, or sailfish. Boat charters are aplenty in the Keys, and it couldn’t be an easier or more fun excursion for the whole family.
Enter an alternate universe under the sea, and enjoy a magical view. Key West is home to the only U.S. living coral barrier reef outside of tropical waters! Swim among a rainbow of spectacular sea life on the many available snorkeling and diving tours. You can also see coral-encrusted ship wrecks, a myriad of spectacular fish, moray eels, jellyfish, and more. And you don’t have to be experienced to try it for the first time! Expert guides will be there every step of the way with you, as you leave the mundane behind in exchange for a deep sea or shallow water adventure of a lifetime!
If you’d rather enjoy the stunning sights of the sea without actually diving in, then a glass bottom boat tour might be just the activity for you. Enormous, air-conditioned, and peaceful boat rides with a glass bottom allow you to watch schools of fish swim among brilliant coral reefs without having to dip so much as a toe in the water. These boats are also equipped with restrooms, a snack bar, sun decks, and an informative guided tour. Sunset sails are especially popular, as you can view brilliant sea life below, and the exquisite Key West sunset above.
Hop on a jetski for an exhilarating ride around the entire island! Like a motorcycle for the water, jetskis have been a popular activity choice for Key West vacationers for years. Tours are available for solo, couples or groups. Grab your honey and rent a double-seater for a tandem tour of a lifetime. Or hop on a solo ski for an electrifying ride with the wind and surf in your hair. Many tours offer a pit-stop at a sand bar to enjoy the vistas, to take a dip in the water, and just to enjoy the view.
Float like a bird in the sky as you fly over the island from a parasail! High above brilliant green waters, enjoy the gentle breeze and silence of the sky while watching dolphins jump below, view the sailboats and skyline, or even a glimpse of your hotel in the distance. Landings and takeoffs are gentle, easy, and safe, and parasailing is a super-fun adventure for the whole family. Enjoy single or tandem rides, and don’t forget your camera to capture the moment!
