I love bike tours as a way of getting to know the city I'm visiting. A little bit of exercise, some history, sights and local recommendations. This tour has it. Honestly, the guide joked about telling us too much history, but I would have loved more. You hit all the highlights of Key West on this tour.

It was a beautiful sail during sunset. We even sailed out of the gulf into the Atlantic for a time. The captain and crew were extremely helpful and informative. The cruise was absolutely satisfying. I took my sister for her birthday but would make a very romantic trip for a couple.

Great trip. We had a 4 woman crew, they hoisted the sails with ease and served wine and beer with a veggie dish, cheese and crackers and shrimp. Great 2 hour sail with beautiful weatherband a beautiful sunset. Highly recommend.

It was truly the highlight of our wonderful vacation! The boat was fantastic and so clean. The appetizers were perfect but the music and staff were first class! Just perfect - can’t wait to do it again!!

Amazing experience. Guys are top notch. If you are in key west don’t miss this..
