Sunset Sails

There is nothing quite like a Key West sunset, and the second-best place to view one (after the Sunset Pier, of course) is out on the water. Whether you’re listening to live music on a catamaran, enjoying a fine glass of wine on a sailboat or enjoying a gourmet meal aboard a yacht, a sunset sail is an absolute must during your trip.

World Class Fishing

The Keys are known for amazing fishing. From the flats and shallows, sight fishing for permit, tarpon or bone fish or in the deeper waters of the backcountry staying just inside of the reef, on the hunt for snapper, grouper or tuna. When you feel adventurous, go deep water fishing and fight the big one – a sailfish, marlin or mahi-mahi. No matter which you choose, you’re in for an experience.
