Scenes like this are the norm on our sandbar trips

Along the way the water is calm and beautiful with so many interesting things to see. With crystal clear waters surrounding our islands there is no telling what we will be able to view. Often we can spend some time to enjoy hanging out with dolphins as they play and enjoy their day. Many times we see stingrays hanging out on the bottom doing sting ray stuff. We always keep an eye out for turtles mostly because they are cool and we want to keep them safe. The birds are everywhere, some are hiding and others are showing off. They come in all sorts of species big and small most often loaded with color. It is not uncommon to see some sharks doing shark stuff, not a threat but indeed a treat to see. These are the main stars that we can include in our amazing sandbar trip side show. 

What Is A Sandbar?

Sandbars are areas of sand that are covered by water. Also called shoals if they are not part of a beach. Often at low tide they can be visible out of the water with wet edges. Higher tides have them partially covered making them a very nice place to visit. Here in Key West we have both. Shoaling and beach sandbars. Both are easy to get to and let our folks enjoy the amazing water quality and tranquility that seems to come from such a beautiful spot.

A perfect place to spend the day with nature.

The water is always shallow at the sandbars – thats why we go there. We call it natures own swimming pool. Depths can range from 0 – 4 ft deep. So just like a wading pool you can enjoy sitting on the beach or shallows this is the best part for just realizing the most amazing place you have ever been. Some folks choose to swim in the deeper waters over the sand and ultimately just floating in natures own infinity pool. Walking around the sand bar nature has treats such as sand dollars, seashells and other small lively critters that might be fun to see. We always return our pets back to the place they came from. 

What Is There To Do At The Sandbar

We recommend the primary activity is to RELAX! Leave the stress of our lives at the dock and unwind. At the sandbar sitting and chilling with a drink in hand toes in the sand experiencing all the nature has provided us taking it all in is the most popular way. This trip is all about relaxing and finding ourselves while taking in the visual treats from the vistas and the sea life. Enjoying time with friends and loved ones making memories to last a life time. We set this stage for you and try our best to make it the best part of your visit to Key West.
