“Lots of neat places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Historic Seaport at Key West Bight is a little deceiving. That's because it encompasses a large area and the northern end felt like it was a separate area before I realized it was all part of Key West Bight. There are delightful shops tucked away on hidden lanes, restaurants galore and grand souvenir shops with nice stuff, not the junk you see on Duval St. On a steamy afternoon, I even stopped in at Key West Bait and Tackle and swigged a beer with gnarly locals at a tiny bar with four stools. You can catch all manner of tours from the marina, including one to the Dry Tortugas and a clothing optional sailing/diving trip. A little something for everyone. My favorites included: Dragonfly, Alonzo's Oyster Bar, Half Shell Raw Bar, Mac's Sea Garden and Curio Shop, Key West Bait & Tackle. Explore the area and discover your favorites.

“Key Lime Pie Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

A great area for a walk around - lots of boating activity to watch, pelicans diving etc. Finish off with the best Key Lime pie in Kermits by the harbour - eat in the litle garden by the goldfish pond with bamboo waterfall - blissful.

“Historic Seaport at Key West Bite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great place to watch the boats come in after a day fishing. Mingle with the boat captains as they feed the pelicans and talk about their day on the water.

“Interesting and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I love the shops, bars, restaurants and boardwalk along the bight. It's one of my favorite places to go and experience the atmosphere of Key West.

There's so much to see and do, I could never get bored. There truly is something for everyone in the bight area.

It's also great to see the tarpon and other fish as well as an occasional rare glimpse of a manatee.

“Walking tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Where else can you see a young lady sitting at a bar with a large live snake draped around her arm. At first I thought she just had a colorful bracelet.
