Get your adrenaline pumping by pairing a Jet Ski tour with one or two other water sports. Choose to snorkel the reefs, fly high above the water on a parasail trip or see the underwater community from a glass bottom boat. Try one, two or all!
Cruise on the Water
Warm up with an awesome 90-minute Jet Ski tour. You’ll motor around the island on a 28 mile tour that takes you through the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean and past must-see attractions like Mallory Square and the Southernmost Point Buoy. On this guided tour, you’ll have the opportunity to carve up the water and also chill out while taking a dip at a sandbar beach and observing the local wildlife. It’s an amazing tour for speed demons and nature lovers alike.
Fly Like a Bird
For those looking to let up on the throttle, try parasailing. Escape the hustle and bustle while your boat captain guides you high above the water’s surface. Soar 300 feet in the sky on 600 feet of line for a bird’s eye view of Key West and the beautiful waters surrounding the island.
Strap on a Mask and Fins
Once you’ve explored the surface of Key West, it’s time to head underwater. Seven miles offshore lays the third largest coral reef in the world. This snorkeling haven allows you to swim in open water with yellow-tail snappers, parrot-fish and colorful coral. Keep your eyes peeled! You might even spot sharks and stingrays.
Paddle the Day Away
Head out on your own expedition by renting a kayak. Explore Key West’s back-country with breathtaking views, unique Florida keys wildlife and maneuver through mangroves.
See to the Bottom of the Sea
If you’re wanting a water adventure that’s a bit more laid back, then the glass bottom boat might be the right excursion for you. Enjoy the wonders of the coral reef all in the comfort and safety of an air-conditioned, state of the art glass bottom boat with “windows to the sea.”
Be Your Own Captain
Renting a boat is another great way to enjoy the Key West outdoors. Whether you’re renting a half-day or full-day, there’s plenty of possibility readily available for you to explore. Have a picnic on a sandbar, anchor and do your own snorkeling or relax and soak in the beautiful island shoreline.
