The Best Water Activity Rentals in Key West

Key West is an enviable destination throughout the year, and that’s mainly because of the island culture, and beautiful surrounding blue waters. There are countless ways to enjoy the environment and scenery including whiling away an evening with cocktails at a coastal bar, hikes on coastal trails, and heading out to sea yourself. 

For some specific examples, check out our guide to the best water activity rentals in Key West. 

Paddleboard & Kayak Rentals

There are many reputable watersport equipment rental services throughout the island of Key West, and all of them offer paddle boards and kayaks for daily and hourly sessions. When you’re looking for the right place, you may want to consider the tours they have on offer. Night Kayak Key West, for example, leads these super unique and wonderful excursions by flashlight after sunset.

Among the most highly rated groups leading backcountry paddle board ventures into mangrove islands and remote sandbars, there’s Key West Eco Tours, Blue Planet Kayak Eco Tours, and Key West Fishing, Kayak & Eco Tours

Jet Pack Rentals

This isn’t the future, and it’s not The Jetsons—jet pack rentals are just a real element of contemporary watersports in Key West and around the world. Strap up with a backpack-style machine that shoots duel streams of water down from around your shoulders, or under your feet, and then shoots you high into the sky. 

You can take group trips out with Florida Keys Jetpacks, the official jetpack flight provider of the Keys and Key West. Each outing provides participants with a jetpack attached to a 33-foot hose, specialized helmets, and the experience of a lifetime.
