This is the only shark tour in the USA and to our knowledge the only tour where guests do not get in the water to view the sharks. Delight in close-up views of sharks and a variety of other marine life. In this eco-friendly catamaran, travel through shallow waters to a location a few miles from shore, observing dolphins, stingrays, barracudas and native birds along the way. Bait is used to attract lemon, nurse and other types of sharks to the side of the boat. Learn all about Key West wildlife and enjoy complimentary soda, juice and chips throughout this family-friendly tour.

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.

    No better way to get introduced to sharks. Super entertaining and exiting . Must visit tour for key west.

    Experiencing the sharks and dolphines in open water was very cool. The information and stories from the captain and crew were incredibly fun as well.

    Captains David, Clay and Matt exceeded our expectations! They were extremely knowledgeable and provided such great information on the wildlife in the Keys. We had our four children with us and the captains were so kind to include them to let them feed the sharks, get to the front to see better since they are little, and joke around with them. They loved getting to see the wild shark-feeding frenzy, while feeling so safe at the same time! This was such a safe, fascinating, educational experience for us. These guys are impressive and we felt so safe on their catamaran and in their care, especially with young children. The experience will be unforgettable for us. If you find yourself in Key West, this is an absolute MUST-DO for anyone visiting the area!

    Nice ride out to the area where the sharks were and everyone had the opportunity to see them and take pictures/videos. Then on the way back we were lucky enough to see a small group of dolphins. I would highly recommend this tour while you’re in Key West.

    Very accessible, my husband who is disabled was able to move around and we both enjoyed the trip. The captain and crew were knowledgeable, which really made the trip great

    This was such a cool experience and the captain/owner is so knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

  • 02-Nov-2022

    The Captain & shipmates were very knowledgeable about sharks & other sea creatures. Also they knew a lot about Key West history & area. It was fun watching the sharks feed.

  • 02-Nov-2022

    Boat captain was excellent. Easily founds the sharks and was meticulous in the feeding process. The dolphins were not quite as easy to find but he persisted until he found them and they provided quite a show. This is a family run operation focused on customer service and enjoyment and is BY FAR the best tour of this kind we have ever been on.

    Amazing experience. This family operated excursion is a MUST do in Key West. It is fun for all ages, and as someone who gets sea sick I can say it was a very mild boat ride, no problems what so ever. The brothers and their uncle made this trip worth it, they are very informative about local marine and wildlife. Highly recommended.
