Know More about this tour

After check-in, board your catamaran, Tiger Cat, which uses a Power-Pole system instead of traditional anchors to secure the boat and protect the sea grass and coral bottom.

Travel through shallow water close to mangrove islands as you make your way about 4 miles (6.4 km) away from shore to the shark viewing site. Along the way, keep your eyes open for dolphin, sea turtles, stingrays, barracudas, tarpon and an array of native birds. Listen to your experienced pilot discuss the delicate ecosystem of this area and its abundance of wildlife. Enjoy complimentary water, soda, juice and chips as well as the use of polarized sunglasses during your trip.

When you arrive at the shark destination, get ready for an unforgettable experience! Your pilot will use bait to draw a host of sharks that swim right up to the boat so you and your family can observe them in safety and comfort. See numerous lemon and nurse sharks, and watch out for bull, black tip and hammerhead sharks during nearly one hour of shark viewing. Capture dramatic photos you can't wait to share with family and friends.

    We booked this tour while on a cruise stop. The captain was very entertaining and his son who did the feeding was also very personable. Watching the sharks feeding was interesting. The boat was not crowded so could see well.

    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.
