The water is warm – jump right in!
Surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, our water temperatures are usually very comfortable – even for the locals! In the winter months, scuba divers may opt to wear a "shortie" but most divers do not. If you're visiting from from the north (and almost every place is north of Key West!), you'll find the water temperature great year-round.

The nightly sunset celebration at Mallory Square is not to be missed. It's definitely on the TOP 10 list! This festival starts about 2 hours before sunset and winds-down as the sun sinks into Gulf of Mexico. The harbor front fills with local musicians, magicians, fire-jugglers, psychics, artists, and one-of-a-kind entertainers like you've probably never seen before. Food and beverage vendors offer conch fritters, coconut drinks, popcorn and key lime treats – all while waiting for the sun to sizzle into the horizon.
