Key West’s Best Bodies of Water for Boating

Set Out West to Marquesas

If you take your boat rental around twenty miles west, you’ll come across the Marquesas Keys. These are a tiny group of uninhabited islands, and the fishing doesn’t come better than in the flats here!

Watch the Birds at Dry Tortugas

Seventy miles west you can sail in your boat rental to Dry Tortugas National park. April is the best time of year to check out this body of water due to the overpassing migratory birds. With binoculars in hand, you can gaze on at this annual natural phenomenon.

Go Shallow in the Sand Bars

Take your Key West boat rental into the sand bars and hop off where you please to secluded spots around the archipelago. These peaceful areas can be found all over the Keys, meaning you can find your very own tropical paradise.
