What You'll Love About the Sunset Cruise in Key West

Being on a chartered cruise is the most unique and amazing way to experience the Florida Keys sunset. Viewing the sunset isn't the only perk of this amazing cruise, however.

Spotting Wildlife

The best way to spot all of the amazing aquatic wildlife of the Florida Keys is by being out on a boat. You could see dolphins, manatees, exotic fish, ospreys, and if you're lucky, even whales. 

There's nothing more magical than seeing wildlife at home in the clear water around the Keys. The rose-gold light of the sunset brings an almost surreal quality to the experience. It's something you'll never forget.

Florida Keys Mangroves

The Florida Keys are famous for its countless mazes of mangrove forests. Normally, you'd view these amazing trees, which bring stability to the coastline and provide hiding spots for fish, from afar. Our sunset cruise will take you deep into the maze, giving you an up-close view of these unique ecosystems.


When you charter our Islamorada sunset cruise, you and a few of your closest friends or family will get a truly relaxing experience. Sit back and enjoy bobbing across the calm waters with a cocktail or glass of wine in your hand, letting all your cares fade away with the sun.

Tips for Enjoying This Special Occasion

You don't need much to enjoy our sunset cruise, but it helps to know what to wear and what to pack. Dress casually and comfortably, but make sure to pack sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray, your hat, and a towel. Don't forget to bring a camera to take pictures of manatees and dolphins along the way.

In the winter months, you may want to bring a light sweater for when the sun goes down. Winter lows can dip down to around 50°, which you'll feel more out on the water.

Now that you know what to expect and what you're going to love on our sunset cruise, it's time to book your spot ASAP. The sunset cruise is one of our most popular tours, so if you want to enjoy everything we discussed here, you need to book early.
