Enjoy the Weather & View

Located on Elizabeth Street, in the Historic Seaport a few blocks away from Mallory Square, Fisherman’s Cafe features a charmingly nostalgic ambience and delicious local cuisine. Serving up island favorites with a modern twist, this walk-up eatery is the rebirth of an old local favorite, where conchs came to swap stories and catch up on the news of the day.

Find Your Oasis

August means flat, calm water, infinite visibility, little to no wind and lots of heat. That’s why the Island Adventure is the ultimate Fury Water Adventure during the month of August. Join us on our half day Island Adventure excursion where you’ll snorkel at a secret spot along the reef in Key West’s backcountry, followed by kayaking through mangrove islands. The day isn’t complete until you’ve had time to relax on a remote sandbar. Snacks are also served throughout this intimate trip on one of our smaller power catamarans.

Conch Republic Seafood Company

Cheers to Happy Hour

Not ready for the fun of your Key West water adventure to end? Step off the catamaran and head over to Conch Republic Seafood Company along the Historic Seaport for enticing happy hour specials and mouth-watering fresh seafood entrees. Enjoy 2 for 1 beer, premium wells and house wines from 4-7pm daily at the bar and patio while watching the sun dip towards the horizon. You’ll be feeling like a true Key West local after a round of your favorite tropical cocktails and a plate of conch fritters.
