Average 4.80 out of 5 stars based on 5 verified reviews from Jet Skis Key West and TripAdvisor.
We decided to take a half-day tour of the lower Keys during our stay in KW. From the moment of our online reservation booking and to the return drop-off, our driver/guide Kim was so professional. She was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the Keys and southern FL. Throughout the tour, she was able to inject personal vignettes, which made the tour even more enjoyable. Stops included the Blue Hole, Bahia Honda, Key Deer WR, and more.
I would definitely recommend taking a Keys tour with Up the Keys! and Kim.
This is a good tour to get history and information of the keys and the sights are awesome. Kim does an amazing job and you can tell she enjoys it.
I was picked up right at my hotel. Was a great tour to get away from Key West and see some of the other keys. Kim was very informative. We got pretty lucky at the blue hole, seeing many different fish and animals that inhabit it, and then even more lucky seeing several key deer on Big Pine Key. Nice way to spend half a day.
This was a fun way to get out and learn about the area and not just Key West. We did see some deer, which are hard to find in the jungle like undergrowth, and we did learn a bunch about the culture and history of the Conch Republic lol.
