Jump on one of our Yamaha Waverunners and cruise around the island on a 28 mile, 90 mins guided jet ski tour. Look out for an array of Florida Keys’ wildlife as you speed your way through our Caribbean waters. Breathe in the excitement as you race from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico and back to the Atlantic.
The two-hour jet ski tour begins with safety instructions from friendly, expert guides, who will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to help you get the most out of your island jet ski experience.
Once you are comfortable with riding your jet ski, you will follow your knowledgeable guide on your personal jet ski for 28 miles, completely circumnavigating the island, a task impossible by most watercraft.
During your jet ski tour, you will take in breathtaking views and watch Florida Keys marine life frolicking in the Caribbean waters. While cruising around the island, your guide will make five stops at various points of interest, such as The Southernmost Point, Historic Key West Bight, and Sunset Key.

A person is exempt from this requirement if there is a person on board who is not affected by this law or is at least 18 years of age and holds a boater education I.D. card. This person must be attendant to and take responsibility for the safe operation of the vessel and for any violation that occurs during the operation of the vessel on your Key West Original Island Jet Ski Tour.

This tour was amazing and so were the tour guides.
They took us around the island with a few stops along the way to give us a bit of history. I specially liked that they had two tour guides so the fast people upfront did not have to wait for the slow people in the back.
You also get about 25 minutes of do whatever you want time so if you want to ride or swim in the gulf it’s up to you. Total time was just under 2 hours .
100% Recommend this tour, whether you’re an experienced driver or a first time rider (I’m somewhere in the middle FYI) either way it is excellent!!!

The best way to enjoy the water and see the island! Highly knowledgeable & friendly guides. Highlight of our trip.
Dakota was the greatest tour guide EVER!
John Wagner, Oct 2020
The staff was so friendly. We took our test and was taught everything we needed to know. I was very nervous since it was my first time riding a jet ski but they were so helpful with instruction. Dakota was so knowledgeable of the island. Told us about the best spots to visit. We had such a great experience, we will definitely use them again when we come back to the keys to visit. Thanks Dakota!
Key west jet ski tour- don’t miss it!
Brianna Vosters, Oct 2020
This tour and the guides were awesome! It was great to see all of Key West from the water. Our guide really tailored our trip to our likes and riding styles. Husbands were worried about a slow ride, but we got plenty of wakes, speed, and adventure! The only jet ski tour on the island where you will also get to free ride in a very large area as well. Our guide took pics for us while out on the water and sent them to us at the end (most tour companies charge per pic for photos they take). Great hospitality from check in to check out. Even got a local recommendation for a lunch spot that was fantastic. Highly recommend this tour!

A must-do if you’re into watersports or comfortable learning
Nick Fala, Sep 2020
What an awesome time. The guides were friendly and relaxed but also kept everyone safe. There were 12 jet skis in our tour- if you were experienced and wanted to go fast you could go with the front group, or if you were new, you could stroll along towards the end. It seemed like they accommodated the newer/less comfortable folks well. This was my first time on a jet ski but I quickly felt comfortable so I moved towards the front of the group. There were four or five stops around the island where we took a break and the guides talked about landmarks, which was cool. You also get to spend 20-30 minutes in a secluded area on the Gulf side where you’re allowed to do whatever you want (within reason) on the jetski or take a brief swim, etc. This was a great experience that I’d definitely recommend as part of your Key West trip even if you’re new to jet skis, as long as you’re comfortable operating power sports equipment and being on the water. Note that if you were born after 1988 you have to pass a 25 question test for the state of FL, it’s $3 and you can take it online in advance.
