The Best Day Trips - Key West Tours and Excursions

From historic forts to pristine coral reefs, watersports, and more, there is so much to see in and around Key West. These Key West tours and excursions will show you what lies beyond the island’s nightlife.

Bike Around Key West

Just seven miles around and mostly flat, Key West is perfect for a relaxed bike ride. Even more perfect is that 24 North Hotel has bikes for rent. Think the ocean breeze in your hair and views of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic as you take your own personal tour of the Conch Republic. Cruise the island on two wheels with our Bike Around Key West special offer. This package includes two bike rentals per day, allowing you to explore Key West at your leisure.


Snorkel the Florida Reef or Take a Sunset Sail

Choose from two amazing experiences with 24 North Hotel’s Fury Watersports Package. Set sail on Fury’s state of the art catamaran bound for North America’s only living coral reef. The Snorkel the Reef encounter is led by Fury’s professional crew with an opportunity to spot the multitude of sea life that make their home in Key West’s waters. Alternatively, Fury’s Sunset Sail allows you to sit back on the scenic trek with drinks, bites, and live music as you watch Key West’s famous sunset slip below the horizon. You may even spot dolphins, sea turtles or tropical birds along the way!


Scuba Key West

Save 20% on all dives and excursions at Southpoint Divers with 24 North Hotel’s Dive then Dream package. Our shuttle will take you within one block of the diver’s shop in Old Town. Apply your complimentary Reef Safe Suntan Lotion, suit up, and hop aboard their custom dive boat for an experience of a lifetime. Browse their website to find a dive excursion that works for you.


Go Fishing: Shore Fishing, Deep Sea, Key West Fishing Charters

From the sport fishing capital of the world on Islamorada to numerous hidden gems in Key West, The Keys are home to abundant sources of fish and a variety of species. No matter the  season, there’s always fish, from marlin and swordfish to dolphinfish and mutton snapper, and much more. For shore fishing, try Fort Zachary Taylor’s rock jetty, where you’ll find snapper, amberjack, and tarpon. For deep sea fishing in the Florida Straits (Ernest Hemingway’s preferred fishing spot for the sheer size of the fish!), check out the island’s fishing charters, of which there are many.

Even if you’re just planning to catch and release, you will need a fishing license. Luckily, they’re easy to purchase through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.


Visit Dry Tortugas National Park

Dry Tortugas National Park is made up of seven small islands some 70 miles west of Key West, accessible only by sea or air. Among seafarers, it’s noted for its rough reef that has brought down many ships - some filled with treasure, which you can check out at the Key West Shipwreck Museum. The park is a birder’s paradise, a history buff’s treat, and a great place to snorkel. Visit Dry Tortugas via daily ferry from Key Bight in Key West. The ride out is just over two hours, and visitors typically spend four hours on Garden Key, checking out Fort Jefferson and enjoying snorkeling. It’s a great day trip for the whole family, with views you can’t see anywhere else.


Rent a Jet Ski

Embrace the freedom of the open waters with a high energy 90-minute tour for two on a tandem jet ski. 24 North Hotel’s Jet Ski for Less special offer also includes 20% off your nightly room rate, and an arrival gift that includes one reef friendly suntan lotion, one water per guest, one SPF lip balm, and one 24 North wellness kit.
