What is more exhilarating than riding a jet ski on the wide open water? There are several rental companies on the island of Key West that offer jet ski rentals and tours. The enormous coral reef outside of the island provides a wave barrier, making jet skiing possible on the smooth, warm sea water of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. Many of the tours last 1 – 2 hours and circumnavigate the 28 miles around the peaceful island of Key West. Don’t be surprised to see dolphins, stingrays, or sea turtles on one of these informative tours!

Boat rentals are available around the island, affording you the opportunity to take the family or just yourself, out onto the beautiful and calm waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. Parasailing tours are also available in Key West in the stunning Florida Keys! Experience a feeling like no other as you soar high above the beautiful tropical waters. Take an evening parasailing tour and enjoy a breathtaking Key West sunset!
