Dream of raising the sails on a 65ft schooner on the open water? Look no further than Danger Charters, docked near the Key West Museum of Art and Westin Resort. Offering a wide variety of water adventures, you’re sure to find something that satisfies your inner explorer. We recommend the Sail, Snorkel & Kayak Day Trips that take you through the back country of the Florida Keys for an up-close look at local tropical birds, fish, and wildlife.
Footloose Key West
It’s time to cut loose—on the waters of Key West, that is! The Footloose Catamaran offers incredible Dolphin Safaris that are truly a special way to spend your vacation. Upon arrival, Footloose provides your snorkel equipment, snacks, beverages and towels so that you’re set for the adventures ahead. Make sure to bring your GoPro—the underwater reefs, fish, and dolphins are the perfect Instagram waiting to happen.
Eric Ryan Fishing
Sometimes a day of fishing is just what you need. Fish the Key West flats with Marker favorite, Eric Ryan Fishing. But don’t take flats for easy fishing, on his blog Eric describes flats fishing as one of “the most challenging and rewarding types of fishing an angler can do.” Give flat fishing a whirl; you may come back with some delicious crustaceans and shrimp!
Jolly II Rover
For a truly authentic sailing trip on the Atlantic Ocean, take a cruise on the Jolly II Rover. The self-proclaimed “most photographed ship” of Key West is available for day sails, sunset sails, and private charters. Our favorite offering: the Combo Tour featuring a pirate-themed adventure with a pirate guide and a Surf and Turf meal special!
Available year round, the Appledore Star is a Key West favorite for sunset sails. History buffs will appreciate that the beautiful schooner was built in 1982 by Jim Richardson, a key shipwright from Maryland. If you’re looking for more Key West adventuring outside of sailing, such as snorkeling, parasailing, and all-day play, try their affiliate Sebago Key West! Recently, the Appledore Star joined Sebago’s schooner fleet and offers afternoon excursions and romantic evening sails.
