Anyone who’s ever visited Key West, Florida will tell you that it’s one of a kind. The southernmost point of the continental United States is a popular destination for every type of traveler. As soon as you arrive, vacation mode switches on and it’s as if you’re on a tropical island.
Key West is known for being quirky, artsy, laidback, and eccentric. Art galleries, boutique shops, dive bars, and seafood restaurants line the streets of this walkable city. Despite being a tropical destination, beaches aren’t too popular among locals and tourists. It’s more about getting on the water on a motorboat, catamaran, sailboat, or luxury yacht.
Boat rental in Key West is available with Click&Boat! We have plenty of vessels ranging in size and purpose for cruising around the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas National Park.
Key West is surrounded by water on all sides, so boating opportunities are endless. The gulf side is rather shallow and takes a bit of navigation knowledge to get around the basins. The Atlantic side is more of a boater-friendly playground, where you can navigate to smaller keys or coral reefs.
