Highlights
    What to Expect
    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.

    I cannot say enough good things about the father and son that run this tour. They provide so much educational information and they are so attentive to the people aboard the boat. They provide snacks and drinks! We had amazing views of sharks, dolphins, and other marine life.

    The captain was very entertaining and funny. The ride out was lots of fun but the shark feeding was nothing but amazing!! There were probably 20 sharks competing for the bait provided by the crew. It was like a National Geographic moment to see a wild shark feeding frenzy. We
