Key West is known worldwide for its sandbars. Visiting sandbars on one of our tours is one of the most popular activities offered by Sandbar Tours Key West. The sandbars are especially fun during low tide when you have easy access to them.
Sandbars are home to lots of marine life. Hundreds of species of fish, birds, rays, and other animals visit the Key West sandbars. You can see them up close without any equipment or even leaving the boat!
The sandbars are also a great place to stop for lunch or drinks. So whether you're looking for a romantic picnic, tasty Key West food, or just a cold beverage during your sandbar tour, you can find it easily on one of our sandbars tours.
