What to Expect
A 1.5 Hour narrated harbor tour around the islands in Key West. Start times vary by season. Pickup is a Schooner Whar Bar. The Captain will bring to life the creation of modern Key West, starting with its unique beginning to its modern setting. During the narration the Captain will also discuss interesting aspects of Naval tradition that affect our everyday lives; from common words that came from naval history to famous sea captains, and nautical traditions found in the Florida Keys.
Craft Beer, Wine and Champagne is available for purchase to all passengers over the age of 21. Please bring Sunscreen, we are the Sunshine state! There is a covered area located on board with shade as well as a bathroom on board.
