The Basics

Travelers docking at the Key West Cruise Terminal can choose from a wide range of shore excursions, from walking tours of downtown to kayak trips through mangrove forests. If you’re looking for more flexible tours, opt for a hop-on hop-off trolley that will take you to many of the island’s hot spots. Some full-day tours head farther afield, following the scenic Overseas Highway to other keys, where you can enjoy local culture and stunning beaches.
