After-Dark actions in the Florida Keys

Set sail on one of Key West’s most beautiful sailboats

The Florida Keys may be known for their subtropical landscapes, crystal clear azure waters and blue sky days. But with an array of after-dark adventures waiting to tempt visitors, the action really starts when the sun goes down.

Nightboarding/Kayaking. As the ocean floor comes alive at night, experience Key West’s undersea wonders during a nightboarding. Or clear-bottom kayak tour at Ibis Bay Beach Resort. Kitted out with I-Lumenate’s Night-Ops waterproof LED light bars to illuminate the water beneath, the stand-up paddleboards and kayaks enable participants to view the nocturnal creatures and colourful sponges on the ocean floor below. Participants paddle through mangrove island rookeries that are home to ibis, herons, pelicans and their fledglings. Keep eyes peeled for upside-down jellyfish, lobsters, stingrays and small sharks.

After-Dark Ghost Tours

Consistently ranked as one of the most haunted cities in America, Key West is the perfect place for a spot of ghost hunting. Join renowned ghost hunter, author and historian David L. Sloan for a 90-minute tour of the Old Town’s “Dead Zone”.  We will use ghost detecting equipment as seen on TV to discover spirits at the city’s most active paranormal locations, such as the former Masonic Lodge and the haunted church bell tower.

 Night Fishing Charters

Florida Keys has Atlantic Ocean on one side and Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. The 125-mile-long arc of islands that comprise the Keys creates a fishing environment unique in the world. Noteworthy catches are possible virtually year-round, and in Islamorada, known as the Sportfishing Capital of the World, visitors can opt for a fishing experience with a difference: a nighttime trip aboard the Capt. Michael.

Full Moon Sailing

Set sail on one of Keys` most beautiful sailboats, the 105-foot wooden schooner America, and enjoy a moonlight adventure. For the sunset sail, guests are offered complimentary beverages and are encouraged to bring their own picnic.

Night Dive Trips

Dive enthusiasts can pump up the adrenaline by taking to the water. That happens as the sun sets on an after-dark dive trip with Islamorada-based Florida Keys Dive Center. Trips depart during the early evening and reach one of several shallow reef sites by sunset. The organizer providing divers the opportunity to enter the water and experience the transition from twilight to darkness.
