    Jetpack, Key West

    Want to raise from the water like James Bond and fly? Then this sport might be something for you. It is called Jetpack. One needs to wear something that looks like a rocket back pack with 2 water jet pipes. Seawater is pumped as the propellant. It's quite futuristic and funny to watch.

  • DOLPHIN WATCH AND FISHING IN ONE COMBO TRIP!

    by tlcreid Updated Feb 3, 2011
    2 Mahi Mahi!

    KW BONE ISLAND WATERSPORTS is a new company and they are super! We had a great time with Captain Tom and his wife, Terri on a combination Dolphin Watching AND Fishing trip. We did not find a more beautiful, clean boat or such a flexible trip. We looked at a lot of other boats and none of them were as nice as this boat, BY FAR! We spent an hour by the dolphins enjoying their play and then went fishing for two hours. Caught lots of fish, which Capt. Tom filleted for us and then we took them down the dock to Dantes to be cooked for us. I had no idea that yellowtail tasted soooo good. Great value and a terrific afternoon!

    Equipment: bring your camera, sunscreen, hat, wine (they have beer and soda and water)

    Scuba Diving in Key West

    by AprilandBones Written Apr 18, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I used Sebago for my water sports. They offer many different activities and they even have all-day packages so you can do a bunch of things in one day, all for a very good price.

    I could not resist scuba diving in Key West. You get the choice of trips, two wreck dives, two reef dives, a wreck and a reef dive, or night time diving. The dives are anywhere between 20 to 40 feet and the Capitan makes the best choice for the weather and water conditions to make sure you get to see a lot of underwater stuff.

    The price is $45 per person and they offer equipment rentals for tanks, weights, full equipment rentals, and wetsuit rentals.

    I chose the wreck and reef dive and rented tanks, weights, and a wetsuit. The equipment was very clean and well taken care of. The water was clear and the sea life was hoppin. The whole experience was amazing and I highly recommend. This was my first wreck dive and I was amazed at how awesome it was. See for yourself all the underwater wonders.

    Equipment: You only need to bring your bathing suit, towel, underwater camera, and sunscreen.

    YOu can rent all of your gear. If you have some gear and it will fit in your suit case like fins, mask, and snorkel, than bring them.

    Mangroves
    4 more images

    I used Sebago for my water sports. They offer many different activities and they even have all-day packages so you can do a bunch of things in one day, all for a very good price.

    I chose The Island Ting excursion, which includes catamaran sailing, snorkeling at the reef, and kayaking in and around the mangroves. On the trip, they provide everything you need as well as lunch, snacks, and beverages including beer and wine.

    If you purchase your tickets online, it is cheaper at $77 per person. If you purchase your tickets at the booth, it is $85 a person.

    The crew is very friendly and knowledgeable about Key West, the catamaran, and the excursion.

    We started with snorkeling at the reef. The water was chilly when we first jumped in, but after making your way to the reef, the water felt fine. The visibility was crystal clear with a lot of fish, crabs, plant life and jelly fish. Do not worry the jelly fish were harmless and did not bother anyone. The fish were very curious and so were the turtles. We saw huge sea turtles on our way back to the boat.

    We had a great lunch with different breads to choose from, a great meat selection, vegetable selection and for the sides there was a pasta salad, potato salads, fruits, chips and many different beverages to choose from.

    Next was the kayaking in and around the mangroves in the calm ocean to the mangrove island. We were given kayaks and we paddled out to the mangroves with our guide. It was a great experience; we saw crabs, more sea turtles, birds, and a tiger shark as well a education from out guide about what we might and what we did see in the water and in the mangroves.

    Equipment: You only need to bring your bathing suit, towel, camera, and sunscreen they provide the rest.

    lets go diving!

    Hello!

    There is a whole other world under the water...the coral reef is a safe and amazing place to learn about biodiversity and communities of organisms.

    This moray appears scary...but by nature they are quite timid. I'm not saying you should pull on their tails like my dear friend Brady does...

    Some of these beautiful creatures grow to 8 feet long...

    Snorkeling

    by 7h0rn Written Jan 12, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went out with the Sebago group - one of the largest and a "best bet" group according to people who live in Key West - "best bet" in that they tend to have more happy people getting off the boat then upset people.

    It took about an hour to get out to the dive spot... and it wasn't the warmest day... but once we got into the water, all the lectures and time and cold and anxiety were worth it. I took 170 pictures underwater. The visability was pretty good.

    Equipment: Take a towel, sunscreen, camera and tip money - everything else is provided.

    I brought my own mask and snorkel and requested to use the open-heel fins - which are a lot more comfortable (to me).

  • Snorkelling in the Gulf

    by ecrivain Written Aug 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went on a four-hour that turned into a five-hour dolphin/snorkel trip into the back country off Key West which is the Gulf of Mexico and dolphin "playground." If you do one of these trips, know that they are expensive and that you rarely get to swim with the dolphins. However, this should not deter you from taking the trip because the snorkelling is pretty cool. Not the best in the world, but not near bad. And, most boat captains provide snacks and drinks on board. As well, a good boat captain will know a lot of history about the area and will have lots to tell you if you're interested. We went on a boat where the captain is a sixth-generation native to Key West so he knew a lot. The water around Key West is freakishly shallow so these trips are pretty safe. Final piece of advice, book a trip with a boat that is a member of the Dolphin Alliance down there. The alliance members, while competitors, will share info about where the dolphins are with each other to ensure that alliance member boats get to see them. The alliance was formed to help protect the dolphins and habitat by enforcing some pretty common sense standards in my opinion.

    Equipment: Snorkel gear should be provided on the boats, but towels aren't!

    Warning: make sure your little life vest doesn’t have a whole in it, before you jump in the water. I learned the hard way.
