Key West is a gorgeous island at the southern tip of Florida. With stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and pristine shorelines, the city is a must-see destination for anyone who loves tropical vacations.
Like any iconic beach town, the best way to experience Key West is on the water. A private sunset cruise lets you explore all the natural beauty of the Atlantic Ocean without the crowds, from swimming through crystal-clear waves to admiring the pastel sky. Your cruise starts about 2 hours before sunset at 6 p.m. With everyone on board, the private tiki boat sets off to tour nearby sandbars and islands. These destinations are perfect for immersing yourself in the tropical atmosphere and soaking up the evening sun. Grab a snorkel and watch schools of colorful fish swim by, or use a paddleboard to sail across the sparkling ocean. You might even see dolphins, sea turtles and manatees swimming nearby!
After exploring the water, head back to the boat for some cold drinks from the coolers and a snack. Our private tiki boats feature plenty of shade to help you stay cool, or enjoy the sunshine on the upper deck. Take a ride down the double waterslide, relax on the 20-foot lily pad or tell the captain to visit a different island. This is your trip, so the fun is up to you.
Safety is our top priority throughout the cruise. Our crew members are trained to protect every passenger, and all our boats are equipped with enough life vests and water safety devices for everyone on board. Relax knowing you and your loved ones are in good hands!
Your cruise ends with beautiful views of the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean. Out on the water, you'll have the whole sky to yourself. No buildings blocking the view — just friends and family enjoying the evening.
