What You Can Expect

Key West Shark and Wildlife Catamaran Tour


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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

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.

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.
