Eco Efforts

As a pillar of our island, we understand the importance of protecting our environment.

One step in Key West and immediately you know that this is a unique and unforgettable place that should be cherished and shared with others for years to come.

Reef And Fish.

MOTE Marine Partnership

Our longtime partnership with MOTE Marine Labs in Summerland Key results in funds to help restore our coral reef. Ocean Key Resort donates a portion of our proceeds from our Sunset Pier Concert Series as well as other events to help with MOTE’s crucial efforts. Our guests contribute through sales of adorable manatee plush toys available in every room. In addition, our staff participates in MOTE’s annual Ocean Fest by selling refreshments to attendees and donating 100% of the proceeds from this amazing educational event.

Ocean Key Resort is a proud supporter of local events such as the Mote Ocean Fest. We are also honored to host our Sunset Pier Concert Series to benefit Mote Marine.

Eco-Friendly Straws

In an effort to reduce sea debris and protect the natural habitat for many varieties of sea turtles, birds and native wildlife, only biodegradable straws are provided at our resort.

Conch Republic Marine Army Boat.

Conch Republic Marine Army

Our support for The Conch Republic Marine Army (CRMA) began in 2017, following a devastating blow to the Florida Keys from Hurricane Irma. The CRMA is dedicated to cleaning and restoring the mangrove habitats in our island chain. Through monetary donations and support of local fundraising events, CRMA’s volunteers have been able to recover 422,734 pounds of debris! The crystal-clear waters of the Florida Keys are a testament to their dedication and hard work.
