Summertime in Key West is in full swing during July! Many fun events take place throughout the month, including Independence Day celebrations. Take advantage of the warm weather with outdoor activities like Fury’s Ultimate Adventure H2.0 trip or the Key West Marlin Tournament.
4th of July Fireworks
Just like most cities across America, you can see fireworks throughout the evening from just about anywhere. However, there are only a few places on the island that allow for spectacular views. White Street Pier has a great view from the beach and Fury offers four trip options to see the fireworks while sailing the ocean. In addition to the fireworks, the Commotion on the Ocean cruise includes live music, a picnic dinner and views of the sunset while the Glass Bottom Boat trip includes a tour of the reef, a picnic dinner and views of the sunset. And for those interested exclusively in the burst of a good firework, hop aboard our lower capacity motorized catamaran for a picnic dinner and a spectacular view of the fireworks show.
Ultimate Adventure H2.0
July is historically one of the warmest months of the year in South Florida and temperatures will hover above 85 degrees on the regular. That means many of the locals and visitors of Key West like to cool off in the surrounding waters (and local bars)! Fury offers an all-day Ultimate Adventure H2.0 that combines our most popular watersports with refreshing beverages and fun times cruising on a state-of-the-art catamaran. Lucky for you, we have added a brand new expansive waterpark and a thrilling banana boat ride to maximize your adventure! The trip runs everyday from 10:30am-4:30pm. Reserve your spot now on this very popular trip!

Committed To The Environment
Fury Water Adventure is committed to protecting the incredible world underwater and will continue to donate a portion of all snorkeling ticket sales to help with the restoration of the Florida Keys coral reefs. Additionally, due to the adverse toxic pathological effects to our oceans brought about by the chemicals found in most conventional sunscreen products, regular sunscreen will not be found on our ships. Several harmful chemicals, chief among them being octinoxate and oxybenzone, have been found to cause coral bleaching and ocean acidification. Instead, in an effort to support and protect our coral reefs, we’re only offering reef-safe sunscreen on all of our adventures. This means the products have been rigorously tested for biodegradability, aquatic toxicity, and coral reef safety and formulated to be safe and healthy for humans as well as marine life.
