Itinerary
Check in at the dock, located on Pier B behind the Westin Resort in Key West, and then climb on board the Tiger Cat. This 34-foot (10-meter), custom-built, eco-friendly catamaran is captained by local wildlife experts with more than 30 years of experience on the Florida Keys’ backcountry waters. The boat utilizes a power-pole system rather than an anchor(s) to keep it in place while viewing sharks, thus preventing any possible damage to the seagrass and coral bottom below.

Travel through the shallow waters close to natural mangrove islands and look for a variety of wildlife — like dolphins, turtles, stingrays and birds, to name a few. Then proceed about four miles (six km) offshore to prime shark territory. A scented bait is dropped into the water to attract these super predators right to the edge of the boat, sharks of all kinds: lemon, nurse, bull, blacktip and hammerhead sharks. Make sure to have a camera ready to capture the scene.

Cold beverages, snacks and polarized sunglasses are included on this Key West shark tour.

Yes, you'd be fine so long as you hold onto them, you're on a boat that has a gate/ fence around the edge.

Yes there is, but it's tiny and down below the deck. Try to get everyone to go before you go on the boat so you can avoid it if possible.
