Watersports—a Way of Life
From fishing and parasailing to glass-bottom boat tours and sailing while the sun sets, Key West delivers watersports like no other place in Florida. Rent a boat and go fishing or searching for lobster. Observe dolphins, turtles, and other sea creatures in the wild. Take a relaxing kayak trip among the mangroves or a sunset cruise to end your day. The water is calling, and you must explore it.
