“Lovely Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

We only discovered this on our second to last night in the Keys... just wished we'd discovered it earlier! It's a lovely walk along the harbour, very old town, looking at the boats at sunset and visiting a drinking establishment or two!!

“Key West Bight an interesting and historical harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

The Key West Harbor has been around for a very long time. It used to be full of fishing boats, but is now home and visiting port for many different types of craft from all over the world. The harbor is an interesting area to walk at any time of day or night. Restaurants and bars line the boardwalks along the shore of the harbor and cater to any taste or budget. Often there are events taking place down by the docks. Don't be surprised to see a pirate or two walking the docks beside you.. Public washrooms are conveniently located. In the late afternoon, if you head over to where the charter boats are docked you may get a chance to see the daily catches as they are taken off the boats. Upon closer inspection if you look into the water beside the boats and under the dock, you may catch a glimpse of Tarpon that have been attracted to the area because of the smell of fish. There are vending machines that sell handfulls of fish food that when tossed into the water will give you a chance to see the Tarpon up close and personal. Some of these mighty creatures are over six feet long. While under the docks and boats the Tarpon behave like puppy dogs. But don't let these silver creatures fool you. They are very strong and fierce when caught on the end of a fishing line. These magnificant silver fish are wonderful to see. Make sure you take some time off your busy schedule to take a walk down by the docks. There is so much to see. Everyday is different, but always fun.

“WOnderful place to walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

This is a place to visit by bike as parking can be a challenge. Wonderful view of the tall ships docked in the seaport.
