Sail into the sunset. Literally.
Sebago’s Sunset Sails are nothing short of spectacular.
Key West sunset are mesmerizing. Visitors and locals alike find themselves spellbound by our breathtaking sunsets, and watching them daily is just part life in paradise. In fact, it’s such a part of our lives that there is a nightly Mallory Square Sunset Celebration—a top attraction in Key West. Once a meeting place for pirates, Mallory Square is a focal point of the island, and, now, sunset central.
What started in the 1960s with a casual group of free spirits coming together to take in the sunset became so popular that in 1984, the Key West Cultural Preservation Society (CPS) was formed. Their purpose is to support the arts by managing the Sunset Celebration—Key West’s funky, nightly arts festival. To further its mission, CPS rents space to artisans to help “preserve the spirit of the Mallory Square Sunset Celebration, its history, tradition and reality.” Every night, a new celebration begins when the sun takes center stage and paints the sky a mural of vibrant, dazzling colors. Joining the sun in its evening blaze of glory are jugglers, musicians, artists, tourists, food vendors, locals, fishermen, and even psychics.
And the absolute best way to take in a Key West sunset is from the deck of a Sebago ship, drink in hand. We love being a part of this nightly celebration; sailing past Mallory Square, our guests taking in all the performances from the water. As the fiery sun sinks slowly into the horizon, our experienced crews maneuver their ships to ensure our guests have the perfect, unobstructed view of this brilliant display.
Sebago offers a variety of sunset tours on catamarans, historic schooners, and even combination snorkel tours. We’ll help you find the tour that fits your interests, schedule and budget. Book a Sebago Key West Sunset Tour to witness this singular celebration firsthand, and soon you’ll understand what it means when the locals say, “See you at sunset!”
