Sunset Cruises

Cruise Key West harbour with Best Key West Charters at sunset for a nice quiet relaxing time. Or… bring along some friends for an evening “booze cruise” and rock the harbour dancing to your favorite music video with your ipod plugged into the plasma screen.

BKWC charters all kinds of special functions and events.

Standard cruises are either 3 or 4 hour scheduled tours. Meet BKWC at the Key West Florida Yacht Club and Marina (slip 36) prior to your departure time. Guests are welcome to bring along their preferred drinks of choice and  BKWC will provide bottled water, ice and coolers.

After everyone is onboard, BKWC sets off for a 20 minute run around Key West heading toward Key West Harbour. You will see much of the famed areas on the west side of the island between Mallory square and Sunset Key. Cruises often ride the tides in and out and gaze at tourists gathering in the Historic District. As the sun sets, grab your cameras and snap of few photos of the best sunset in the world. BKWC will get you back to the Yacht club in time for the remainder of your evening.

Transportation to BKWC is $18  by cab from almost anywhere on the island. If you are a hotel guest and staying near the foot of Duval in one of the many waterfront hotels (Westin, Pier House, Hyatt). BKWC can make arrangements to meet you down on the waterfront.


Group rates are $500 (3-hour) and $600 (4-hour) for evening sunset cruises. BKWC charges these flat group rates based on tour cost and not how many people are in your party. We do not double book so your cruise is ONLY with members of your party. We accommodate up to 6 people very comfortably and work to make every group happy with their Key West experience. If guests make a special request for an extended tour, additional charges will be negotiated and applied to your credit card.

Private Charters
