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.
  • Shark and wildlife boat tour from Key West
  • View lemon, nurse and other shark species from the safety of your catamaran
  • Spy dolphins, stingrays and sea turtles on your way to the shark viewing location
  • Travel in a catamaran built to minimize environmental impact
  • Learn about the marine life and mangrove islands on your tour from your pilot
  • Refreshing non-alcoholic drinks and chips provided
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.

My wife and I had a great time. Watching the sharks feed off the bonita bait was awesome. Great trip, great crew, and, reasonably priced. I highly recommend.

Amazing, exciting and very educational. Capt. Ken and his son Clay take you right up close and personal with the sharks. Then experience a feeding frenzy! Also we got to see Dolphins right in close. The education we got from Ken, who has about forty years of experience in these waters, was fascinating. A great two hours and one of the best deals in Key West.
Be prepared. Parking in this area is hard to find and expensive, so either walk or ride your bike there. They are located on Pier B behind the Margaritaville Hotel, formerly the Westin.

This tour is incredible. Highly recommend. You get to see Lemon Sharks up close in thier own environment along with other wildlife including dolphins, jumping fish and an array of birds. Being out on the water seeing the keys is incredible too.

We loved our shark tour. We are from Washington state and were on our way to Havana. I really enjoyed the dolphins. The Uncle even loaned me a sweatshirt to wear when it got cool.

A pleasant 2 hour morning experience. They have a spot where they generally attract a few sharks. Unfortunately the waters were unusually cool and no sharks appeared. We moved on in search of dolphins. We did encounter a lone dolphin and Captain Clay kept us in close enough contact to get some photos. It wasnt the shaft and wildlife excursion that we were hoping for, but customers have to undertake these types of trips realizing that animals wont just appear. The boat trip was fun and the captain and first mate did everything they could to make the most of what Mother Nature served up. It was a good use of time and money.

We were given bad instructions on where to meet. We were 5 minutes late, and on the phone with them, but they left without us.

Captain Sam and his son Clay do a wonderful job searching for the sharks, dolphins, turtles and stingray. I highly recommend this particular tour for a great adventure!
