Things To Do Key West

Ideas for a Land and Sea Florida Keys Vacation

Well, what can't you do in Key West?!  That might be a better question.  Ever since the old days of Hemingway, like him, many people return to the Florida Keys over and over, because honestly these little islands pack in a wide variety of experiences and surprises that you'll never forget, and it's different every time.  Our motto of "One Human Family" is tangibly felt as the Island opens its arms to all people, and whether your aim is to plan a kid-friendly family vacation or an adults only getaway, Key West is a place like no other.

On the Sea:

Snorkeling and Diving: The Florida Keys is home to the third largest barrier reef in the world. It is the largest in North America and runs all the way along the Keys to Dry Tortugas National Park.  It is living and active, and you will see vibrant color in both the coral and the fish of the reef.  We are also home to some bucket list shipwreck diving!  For more information about the best snorkeling and diving locations, click here.
Fishing: "Back country", otherwise known as Florida Bay, offers the opportunity to catch bonefish, tarpon, redfish, and snook.  Head south of the Keys towards the Gulf stream and find some of the finest deep sea fishing anywhere.  Marlin, sailfish, swordfish game are yours, and the finest mahi-mahi, tuna, red snapper, grouper; you name it.  Be sure to talk with our skilled fishing captains here at Sail Away.
Sailing:  Sailing of course!!  That is why we are here. The Florida Keys cruising grounds are a sailor's delight.  Enjoy the prevailing easterlies, reliable most months of the year.  We can build a customized itinerary according to the forecast for the week or according to the things your family enjoys most.  Sail to the Dry Tortugas National Park, accessible only by boat or sea plane.  Along the way, spend the night at anchor off beautiful Marquesas Keys
​, a quiet, unihabited area rich with wildlife.  Or, you can choose to sail up the Keys and visit Bahia Honda State Park, Looe Key Reef preserve, Marathon, and more.  The north side of the Keys is known as the "back bay" or Florida Bay, and is home to stunning sandbars and mangrove island anchorages.
