Overview
Get up close with sharks and other marine wildlife on this 2-hour boat tour from Key West. Travel on board an eco-friendly, 34-foot catamaran just a few miles off the coast of Key West. See dolphins, stingrays, turtles and birds and learn about Key West’s waters, and then watch as the pilot drops bait to draw a variety of sharks right to the edge of the boat. Bring a camera to capture the excitement as these super predators swarm. Cold drinks, snacks and polarized sunglasses are included on this Key West shark cruise.
What to Expect
Check in at the dock, located on Pier B behind the Westin Resort in Key West, and then climb on board the Tiger Cat. This 34-foot (10-meter), custom-built, eco-friendly catamaran is captained by local wildlife experts with more than 30 years of experience on the Florida Keys’ backcountry waters. The boat utilizes a power-pole system rather than an anchor(s) to keep it in place while viewing sharks, thus preventing any possible damage to the seagrass and coral bottom below.

Travel through the shallow waters close to natural mangrove islands and look for a variety of wildlife — like dolphins, turtles, stingrays and birds, to name a few. Then proceed about four miles (six km) offshore to prime shark territory. A scented bait is dropped into the water to attract these super predators right to the edge of the boat, sharks of all kinds: lemon, nurse, bull, blacktip and hammerhead sharks. Make sure to have a camera ready to capture the scene.

Cold beverages, snacks and polarized sunglasses are included on this Key West shark tour.

The BEST boat tour EVER

We've been on numerous boat tours around the country but nothing compares to the Key West Extreme Adventure tour. Seeing sharks just a few feet away feed on the provided bait was absolutely mind blowing! The father-son team provided a fascinating narrative of the sea...More

Amazing!

Our 3 year old grandson was apprehensive about the boat until he got on. He thoroughly enjoyed himself. The sharks were just wonderful. Like something out of a movie scene. Beautiful water, dolphins and excellent guides. Highly recommend!

Awesome experience!

Yes, you'd be fine so long as you hold onto them, you're on a boat that has a gate/ fence around the edge.

Yes there is, but it's tiny and down below the deck. Try to get everyone to go before you go on the boat so you can avoid it if possible.

There is a gap of about 6-12 inch you have to cross to get on the boat. If you are in a wheelchair, it can still be done, but could be a struggle for you and/or those helping you, to get down the dock ramp and around the... More
