Dry Tortuga Trips
Key West is the proud home of Dry Tortugas National Park, which is home to historic Fort Jefferson. You may reach the island by one of 3 ways; ferry, seaplane, or private charter boat. When visiting Key West, this is one of the must-do activities so we encourage you to book in advance…Trust us, it’ll be worth it.
See wild dolphins in their natural habitat! Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, people are not allowed to swim with the dolphins, but they will entertain you with their antics and enthusiasm! Some trips also include snorkeling the reef or backcountry. Private charters available.
The environment surrounding Key West is so unique and wonderful that it begs to be explored. Discover the natural secrets and explore by snorkeling the backcountry or traveling through the mangroves in a see through kayak or paddle-board. We guarantee you will be amazed by the natural beauty around you. Our guides will teach you about the coral reefs, birds, marine life, and mangroves that surround our sanctuaries of Key West!
Key West offers world class fishing in different areas surrounding the islands. Choose from backcountry flat water, coral reef & wreckage areas, and offshore fishing for larger species. Our best in class companies own some of the finest boats available to take you fishing and enjoy what is naturally one of the best vacation fishing spots in the United Sates.

Key West Golf Club
Tee it up and let ‘er rip on the Key West Golf Club’s 18 holes, which encompass 200 well-groomed acres of Florida Keys foliage and wildlife. Our championship caliber golf architect Rees Jones designed the 6,500 yard course to challenge all players regardless of their handicap. We can reserve your tee times and make sure you get to experience this beautiful tropical course.
Museums & Historic Tours
We are lucky to live in Key West, an area that is rich in history and offers a variety of historic museums and attractions. Key West operates a trolley ride complete with a narrator who provides an overview of the island’s history and points of interest. We also offer trips on the famous Conch Tour Train that is fun for families. Our wonderful museums offer complete details of art, treasure and history!
Key West is not a large island and is approximately two miles wide by four miles long which allows visitors to explore the island by bike. There is definitely a bicycle culture here because it is such a great way to get around. So get some exercise, have some fun and save some money on parking. Cruise around all day and we can arrange free delivery or shuttle pick up.
Scooter & Electric Car
If you want the ease of getting around, without the burden of parking a car and fighting traffic, visitors can rent a scooter or an electric car to get around. Rent for days, weeks or months at a time. We offer a shuttle service for this activity and suggest renting them early so that you can make sure to secure your scooter or electric car. We work with a preferred vendor who has both to rent.
BOO!, Key West has many tales of sunken ships and ghosts galore. We invite the brave and adventurous to take part in a ghost hunt, either by foot or on a narrated trolley. The chilling stories and events are haunting, fun and sometimes eerie. P.S. Watch out for the one famous doll!
