Although you may be scaling back your normal New Year’s Eve programming, bid adieu to 2020 in style. There's a way to celebrate for just about everybody, as the island's myriad of NYE possibilities cater to a wide range of personalities, much like Key West itself. No matter which you choose, you can count on a good time. Here are some of our top picks for ringing in 2021 on New Year’s Eve in Key West.
Reserve a Sunset Cruise
Book a cruise to watch the last sunset of 2020 while reflecting on the past year. Fury Water Adventures presents a special NYE live music sunset sail on their state-of-the-art catamaran. Witness beautiful views of the famous Key West sunset while indulging in complimentary appetizers, frosty margaritas, Champagne, beer, wine, and sodas. See your New Year’s Eve options and book ahead.
Whether you’re aboard Fury or watching the sun dip below the horizon at Mallory Square, Fort Zach, or a local restaurant, viewing a Key West sunset is always a cause for celebration. Sunset gatherings can get crowded, so please remember to travel responsibly and maintain social distancing when possible.
