Things to Do in Key West

Key West, as you may already know, is a water-sports lover’s Mecca! Thousands of Miami tourists come to

Key West on weekends simply to get away from the city and lose themselves in water sports. The summertime

weekends are especially attractive for these kinds of cool, water activities that take your mind away from the

daily stress of urban life.

The three or four months of summer offer the best clear, sun-filled days and the blue waters of the ocean that

simply beckon the tired mind. The water temperature around this time of the year is also highly suitable for long

stretches of physical activities. The major water sports available in Key West are described here, so that you can

plan your next weekend getaway from Miami better.


Diving is an underwater activity and requires a thorough medical checkup to assess the diver’s physical fitness

for the activity. Most diving operators in Key West have their own doctor or physical instructor to provide the

best guidance. These operators also provide all the diving gears and special diving tours often combined with

snorkeling, kayaking, dinner and dance, and sunset watching. You can easily take one of these diving trips to

the underwater marine sanctuary or the maritime museum, or to the many coral reefs spread all over the costal

Florida Keys.


Key West water-sports operators also offer snorkeling as a separate activity from diving. The divers who have a

health issue or experience issue can choose snorkeling to get an equal amount of enjoyment among the marine

life. The reputable operators will provide all the necessary gears on rental basis, so you do not have to carry all

the stuff from home.

Many times, a second activity like sailing, kayaking, or diving is combined with snorkeling as a combo

package for expert sportspeople. The only requirement for a combo package is your energy to last through an

entire day of physical activities.

day or for a full day. The most common fishing pastime here is to sail up the bay, and catch a handful of fish

along the way. If you happen to be an experienced game fishing enthusiast, you will have a wonderful chance of
