While Key West’s nightlife and sunsets are legendary, it is the water that makes a Key West vacation truly unique. Key West is an island surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico on the west, the Atlantic Ocean on the east, and the Straits of Florida between Key West and Cuba. Key West is connected to mainland Florida via the Overseas Highway. Unlike any other highway, it stretches for 113 miles over 42 bridges and many small islands. The Overseas Highway ends in Key West at the famous Mile Marker 0 sign.
Spectacular tropical weather means year-round fun in the sun. Water temperatures are comfortable all year, averaging 80’s during the summer and 70’s during the winter. Gentle breezes, warm water and blue skies beckon all who visit to jump on a boat and play in the ocean. Many varieties of fish, coral, marine wildlife and birds populate our paradise. Coral reefs 7 miles off-shore protect Key West’s waters and provide ideal snorkeling conditions in the clear, shallow aquamarine waters. Many of Key West’s best snorkeling locations are in 5′-20’ of water and are only accessible by boat.
Snorkeling is one of the most popular Key West activities for locals and tourists alike. Another must-do activity is sailing, whether going out for a Key West sight-seeing tour on a tall ship or a sunset sail. The calm, clear waters and tropical breezes are an intoxicating combination. Soon you understand why so many people fall in love with island living.
Other favorite island activities include jet skiing, kayaking, paddle-boarding and parasailing.
