If you’re in Key West, getting out on the water is simply a must-do. You’re on an island surrounded by the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. From the third largest barrier reef in the world to shallow sand flats and mangrove islands, Key West is a water sports and boating paradise. Check out our guide below to figure out which watersports are best suited to you!
If you’re an adrenaline junky who loves to go fast or you simply love getting out of your comfort zone, then Fury’s 90-minute guided Jet Ski tour is the way to go. Traverse 28-miles on these powerful machines where you’ll see the island from a unique vantage point. You’ll also have the chance to stop at a sandbar and take a dip in the water to cool off before you hop back on your ride and race around at top speeds.
If you love the idea of connecting with nature and learning more about Key West’s unique eco-system, then the Island Adventure half-day excursion is perfect. Disembark aboard our intimate Island Cat for an adventure that allows you to snorkel at hidden spots that only locals know about. Afterwards, head to a sandbar beach near mangrove islands for a nature kayak. Discover Key West’s migratory bird species and marine life, and learn how the mangroves and the coral reef support their development. The trip includes a light lunch, snacks and cold Coronas.
For families traveling to Key West, the Glass Bottom Boat trip is a natural fit. Whether you have little ones who aren’t confident swimmers yet or it’s a multi-generational trip with grandma and grandpa, the Glass Bottom Boat allows guests to experience the coral reef inside a comfortable, air-conditioned vessel. The trip includes an informative harbor tour and a guided narration on the wonders of the reef.
If nothing thrills you more than diving into that deep blue sea, then a snorkel trip is just the answer. For adventurers with a natural curiosity and a keenness to discover the world around them, Key West’s coral reef is an absolute treasure and this is sure to be an experience of a lifetime. Spend a full hour snorkeling amidst rainbow parrotfish, angelfish, damselfish and maybe even a stingray or a sea turtle. For more variety, consider a two-reef stop Double Dip Snorkel trip that allows for even more time in the water.
Maybe the nightlife on Duval is your main draw? Consider starting the night aboard Fury’s Commotion on the Ocean sunset sail. We bring the party every night with live music and a dance floor on the bow of our 65-foot catamaran with the Cory Heydon Band. This two hour sunset sail includes hors devours, beer, wine, champagne and margaritas—and, of course, incredible views of Key West’s famous sunset. It’s the perfect way to start your Duval Crawl.
You’re an active adventurer. You’ve got endurance and you never run out of energy. Most importantly, you love the water. Then, the Ultimate Adventure is your ultimate Fury excursion. Enjoy a full day on the water with breakfast and lunch included. Your activities for the day? Snorkeling, parasailing, banana boat rides, jet skiing, kayaking and an inflatable water park. The day can be as action-packed or as relaxed as you make it. We also consider sunbathing a competitive sport in Key West!
Are you still looking for the thrill of an exciting water sport minus the water? Consider a parasailing excursion. That’s right, no swimming is required to soar 300 feet above the water for bird’s eye views of the island below. You’ll be harnessed into a parachute by our professional crew and glide through the air with the greatest of ease. It’s an exciting—and surprisingly peaceful—experience that is not to be missed.
