Why take this tour?

Key West is a very unique island in the middle of the ocean. It has crystal clear and shallow waters that are every kayaker's dream. At night, without a glare from the sun, with the use of artificial, battery-powered light - you will get an unforgettable experience that will make you feel like you're kayaking in the very large aquarium. Going on the water in the kayak at night, under the stars is an amazing experience on its own - seeing some really cool nocturnal marine life and being educated about it - is a really nice bonus!

Frequently asked questions

That would mean that all the singles are already booked. Please browse other dates or tour times. Our online booking system shows real-time availability - if it doesn't let you book - it means we don't have it available.
It is possible for a single person to ride a double kayak solo but that person needs to be 190lbs or less because all the weight will be just on one end of the boat (without anything on the other end to counter-weight).
Our first tour starts 15 minutes after sunset so the exact times of the tour vary throughout the year. Once that first tour books full, we start booking late night tour that leaves 2 hours after sunset. We need a minimum of 6 participants to do the second tour. Once you book your tour online, you will get a confirmation email that will include the approximate check in time, detailed directions, payment details etc.
All our tours are guided by trained professional tour guides. They make sure that you're safe and that you get the most out of the experience. The tour guide will jump in the water and show you different critters, educate you about them.

In our opinion, the perception of the tour is about the same in a single or double kayak.
Shorts and t-shirts. Bring a hoodie for colder nights during winter time. You might get a little wet but you shouldn't get soaked. Shoes, water shoes and flip flops stay on the dock as they scratch the plexiglass bottom of the kayaks.
It's not buggy at all despite what most people think. Please DO NOT use bug spray as the chemicals that are in it damage the clear coat of the plexiglass kayak bottoms.
We have a dock-box that we lock for the duration of the tour. You're welcome to leave your things inside and your tour guide will unlock it after the tour.
You can bring a bottle of water etc but alcohol is not allowed. You have to be 100% sober to do this tour. If you show signs of intoxication we will refuse service and you will not be refunded. Your safety is our priority.
You will see nocturnal marine life that becomes active at night but we can't promise any particular animals as every tour is different and we don't have residential critters that would always be waiting there for us :)
