Key West Sunset Celebration
Key West, known for its inspiring sunsets, draws visitors from around the globe. Most head to Mallory Square to watch the spectacle but you can book a tour that will take you high above the crowd, where you'll have an unobstructed 360-degree view of the main event. Board a helicopter and your guide will start by pointing out marine life, like stingrays and dolphins, in the water below. Then, the helicopter positions itself over Mallory Square for a perfect view of the sun as it sets.
What to Expect
On our most exclusive trip, the first half of your helicopter flight will include spotting various marine life like sharks, stingrays, and dolphins in their natural habitat, followed by Key West’s world famous sunset. While hundreds of visitors gather every evening around Mallory Square to view the event, this is the only tour that will allow you to fly high above the crowd with an unobstructed 360 degree view as you watch the magnificent sky change color. Enjoy a complimentary champagne toast as the sun disappears behind the horizon, followed by a relaxing twilight ride over the water as you return to land. This breathtaking experience only happens once per day, so we recommend reserving your tour as early as possible! (30 minutes)

This is a private tour. A single rider will not be added to your Sunset Celebration

Please note: Max weight per seat 300 pounds, and max weight per group is 600

As a local I've been there and done that and have the t-shirt...this was by far an experince of a lifetime.

From the moment Abby appeared and escorted me to her aircraft I had a superb experience. As an adventurer at heart this excursion made those strings !! Well worth every moment and dollar.
