Boat Tours#2 in Best Things To Do in Key West
Price & Hours
When you're not admiring the waters that surround Key West from the beach, enjoy them from the deck of a boat. Several companies offer sailing, snorkeling and kayaking tours, not to mention sunset cruises. Danger Charters, Classic Harbor Line and Sebago Watersports all receive favorable reviews from recent travelers. There are also several tours designed exclusively for dolphin watching (the Florida Keys are a refuge for hundreds of dolphins every year) – Wild About Dolphins and Dolphin Watch are among the most popular, according to recent travelers.
If you sign up for a snorkeling tour, you'll likely sail to the Florida Keys Reef – the only living coral barrier reef in North America. Located 7 miles off the coast of Key West, the reef offers shallow waters ideal for beginners. Travelers can also sign up for kayaking tours and paddle through the uninhabited mangrove islands in the Key West National Wildlife Refuge.
Depending on the company you choose, tours can range from half-day to full-day excursions, and most include beverages and light snacks. Tour prices vary by company, but you can expect to pay at least $40 per person, with prices varying by time of day and tour length.
