Now, Key West Water Sports makes it easy for Key West visitors of all ages to get a taste of the water sports action that makes the Keys famous.
Experience Great Key West Snorkeling
America’s only living coral reef lies just six miles off the south shore of Key West, and all around the island are waters rich with potential for snorkeling and scuba diving. Key West is surrounded by areas where shallow water flats support coral patch reefs and mangrove islands that are perfect for snorkeling. Marine life of all sorts from tiny, colorful tropical fish to sea turtles, dolphins, and gamefish makes for exciting underwater viewing. In the offshore waters, scuba divers can explore deep reefs in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary or some of the wreck dives that Key West is so well-known for.
Whether you want to take a quick half-day snorkel or enjoy a full day on the water that combines snorkeling with dolphin watching, kayaking, and other activities, Key West Water Sports has the tour you need. All-inclusive trips provide snorkeling gear and instruction for those new to this easy sport. Expert scuba divers will want to check out a dive on the Florida Reef or the General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, the second-largest ship ever sunk as an artificial reef and dive site. New divers can easily arrange a PADI Open Water Certification course that can get you dive-ready in just 2 fun-filled days.
Take Off on a Key West Jet Ski or Parasail Tour
Feel the thrill of power and speed aboard a high-performance jet ski as you make an unforgettable run completely around the island of Key West on our Original Island Jet Ski Tour. There is nothing like the excitement of skimming over the emerald water carving turns and blasting through the chop on your own jet ski. Take a 28-mile guided loop around the island to see the sights along the shoreline, explore sandbars and deserted beaches in the Backcountry, and get close-up views of birds and marine life. All while having the time of your life on one of the island’s most popular water sports adventures.
For even more excitement, hop aboard a modern 12-passenger parasailing boat and go for a parasail flight that will have you soaring nearly 300 feet above the nearshore waters of Key West. Experienced professional parasail tour operators buckle you in, then you can lift off from the platform at the back of the boat to fly high above the water. The views of Key West are spectacular, and the reefs and sandy bottom are perfectly visible through the clear water below. The parasails have a seating capacity of up to 3 riders so you can share the rush with family or friends.
Try Some Legendary Key West Fishing
Key West Sport Fishing has been legendary since the days when Ernest Hemingway trolled the waters between Key West and Cuba for huge Blue Marlin, giant Bluefin Tuna, and fighting Sailfish. More than 600 International Game Fish Association world records have been set by fishermen in the Keys, and you can go out in deep water on the hunt for your own trophy Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna, or Wahoo. For fast action, hit the reefs and wrecks with light tackle to fight Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, and even Sharks. It’s great family fun fishing with some good fish dinners as a bonus.
Key West Water Sports is your connection to Key West’s historic Charter Boat Row and the captains who have been pulling fish from the island waters for generations. Make all the arrangements right here for world-class Light Tackle, Deep Sea, Backcountry Flats, and economical Party Boat Fishing charters. All fishing licenses, professional-class rods, tackle, and bait are included, so it only takes a few clicks and you are ready to show up at the dock with your hat, sunglasses, and camera.
