If you enjoy staying on the surface, try racing across the smooth nearshore water on a thrilling jet ski tour, kayaking on crystal-clear channels through mangrove jungles, or cruising under sail with cocktail in hand. You can even rent your own boat and explore offshore on your own.
Those who want to go deeper into the amazing Florida Keys marine environment can try snorkeling in the Backcountry or out on North America’s only living coral reef. SCUBA diving is also a good option, and if you have never tried the sport, Key West is the perfect place to learn. Nature lovers should consider taking a full day to explore the waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary on a Key West Backcountry Safari that combines sailing, snorkeling, and kayaking with a delicious picnic lunch on the water.
The Best Fishing in Key West
Fishermen will not want to pass up the chance to try Key West's world-renowned sportfishing. From the shallows of the Backcountry Flats where anglers battle mighty 100-pound Tarpon to the Atlantic depths of the Florida Straits that were the setting for author and sportsman Ernest Hemingway’s battles with giant Blue Marlin, Key West waters offer a nearly endless variety of fishing possibilities.
Take the family out on a budget-friendly party boat trip to haul in some tasty dinner fish. Go out to the sunken wrecks in the Gulf of Mexico to get into arm-cramping battles with Kingfish, Tuna, big Amberjacks, giant Groupers, monster Sharks and more. The action zones change with the seasons and the migration of baitfish and predator species, but you can find a hot bite somewhere nearly every month of the year. When it comes to Key West fishing, you could say that there is always something on the line.
