Red Sunsets, White Sails, and Blue Water

There is no better place for fun in the Key West sun than from the water. The original Key West watersports company, Sunset Watersports, began in 1984 with one boat and the idea that parasailing was just the adventure that the Keys needed. Almost four decades later the family business is the largest watersports company in Key West and offers exclusive rates to Parrot Key guests including tours off the beach behind the resort, and larger boat tours available via private shuttle.

The newest tour launching from the Parrot Key shore is a Sunset Eco-excursion on a kayak or paddleboard with expert guided instruction. Paddle through the beauty of the mangroves and the sunset at the edge of the Florida marine sanctuary where dolphins love to play. If a fast-paced tour is more your speed, then the daily Jet Ski Tour around the entire island of Key West might be the adventure for you. Swim at a private sandbar, view the Southernmost Point from the water (pro-tip to avoiding the photo line on land) and ride at your own pace, because this tour includes a guide at the front for the adrenaline junkies, and at the back for those riding at a more leisurely pace. 

However, if setting sail on a stunning double or triple-decker catamaran is the scene you’re set on then the Island Sip & Sail or the Parrot Play packages are the ones for you. These are each 2-3 hour trips with unobstructed water views tailored either to happy hour vibes with live local music and a stunning sunset, or to family play time with dolphins, sea turtles, and tropical fish. Whichever you choose, you’ll take with you memories to last a lifetime. 

For an unforgettable Fourth of July, be sure to book early for the Sunset Watersports catamaran tour to secure the best views of fireworks on the island. And don’t miss the 8th annual Key Lime Festival, which returns July 1st through 5th, with all sorts of celebrations to keep you and your family smiling. From a key lime pie-eating contest to cooking demonstrations, from cocktail parties to rum tastings, the festival has fun for everyone!  Visit our Calendar of Events for more Key West happenings.
