About This Key West Tour
Some people fret endlessly about how best to experience Key West.
Maybe they go for a walking tour, or rent a bike to cover more ground. Perhaps they check out the Hemingway House, or pay a trip to the historic Fort Zachary Taylor, the hexagonal naval stronghold built in the late 1800s.
But you're different. You, the unrelenting vacationer, will stop at nothing short of the ultimate, comprehensive Key West experience. A helicopter tour? Sounds exciting, sure. A half-hour aerial loop that takes you around the entire island and deep into its beautiful backcountry? Now we're talking.
Not only will you see the island's famous landmarks – Duval Street, Mallory Square, and the Southernmost Point – you'll also enjoy a journey into the wilder side of Key West. The jade waters around the Snipe and Mud Keys are home to an assortment of marine life; your pilot guide will help you identify the shapes you see in the serene waters below.
Because if you're going to see paradise, why not see it all?
There's gold in them thar seas
Before the development of modern sea navigation, Key West was a dangerous place for ships. The sandbars, coral formations, and shallow waters that are so beautiful from above contributed to the huge number of shipwrecks here in the early 1800s. In fact, in the 1830s, Key West was the wealthiest city per capita in the U.S., thanks to the vast riches that locals salvaged from the wreckage of commercial ships.
