Been doing this boardwalk for many years. You get to see a lot of great fishing boats, yachts and tall ships. Also you pass a lot of venues that have live music.There are plenty of restaurants along the walk . I use a mobility scooter the ramps are outstanding I recommend this highly

Visiting the Harbor was so much fun!!! It is easy to get to. Just walk to the end of Duval, 1 Duval, and then turn right on Front Street. You will see all types of fish and birds. We spent hours here. We did not see manatees but they had been at the harbor before we got there! Around 4, some of the fishermen clean the fish they caught that day. This attracts both birds and fish for people to watch. The harbor area also has some great places to eat and shop. We highly recommend you come twice: once in the morning when you might see a manatee and once between 4 and 5 to watch the fishermen birds and fish interact. happy hour starts in this area around 4 or 4:30. There is no charge to walk around and enjoy all the sites. With the beautiful view of the ocean, this is a perfect area to spend some time!

We visited KW seaport late afternoon when heading down for sunset at Mallory sq. It was full of boats and yachts, different in sizes and many of them served as charters to rent.
Kids were entertained feeding the fish. There are several, mostly fish restaurants around. Nice place to walk around or dine.

After dinner, we took a walk around the harbor and watched the sunset. Boats and ships of all kinds were anchored at their slips or were off loading fish and fishermen from their day of angling. Cruise ships were boarding passengers and preparing to leave port. Sunset cruise people were boarding for an eventful evening at sea and we all were just enjoying the port. A great way to see all kinds of work and play in the KW harbor.

Of course you have to come through this area, and you must while in the keys. Lots of food to eat. Lots of boats to see especially when they are decorating them for Christmas. They were feeding the Tarpon off the doeck at (4:00 was it?) or 5 everyday. The Pelican sure knew what time it was to come eat. The fish were massive easily seen from the docks. Huge yachts in the harbor along with smaller boats. Some areas roped off as being more private for the boaters. A park inside the area to sit.

We walked along here several times during our KW visit. Mornings were quiet and people were gathering to take boat excursions. Afternoons were busy and lots of restaurants and bars to eat/drink at. Several shops. Many different types of boats and we saw two manatees up close one morning!

We spent several hours exploring the seaport, finding lots of places to stop and enjoy a beverage, shop, watch the boats, and spot sea life. There were manatees hanging out as well as tarpon, sharks, colorful reef fish and pelicans. Cute little shops along the way with the usual tourist offerings as well as some unique shopping. Great way to enjoy an afternoon and see the sunset.

Lovely area to hang out in and grab a ice cream while you watch the boats. We took a couple tours during our trip to Key West, and we arrived a little early so we could sit at the docks for a while and just enjoy the view.

There are some shops, in case you forget your sunscreen or sun hat. Some of the stores have really beautiful art work as well. Good restaurants as well!

You could spend a lot of time here just admiring some large yachts. Make sure to eat at one of the many restaurants along the docks. There is also feeding of the tarpons and sharks when fish cleaning occurs.

Happy Hours abound. Lots of food choices. I personally liked this area a tad better than Duval, although I would not miss Duval. Beautiful sunsets. Watch the sunset tour boats pull in at night. The boats...you just have to see them.
