Key West Helicopter Tour

If you have an extra hour in port, then you’ve got time to experience the breathtaking beauty of Key West from 500 feet in the air. On this fully narrated helicopter tour, enjoy a smooth 12-minute ride with gentle turns. Soar over crystal-clear waters, spotting majestic sea life in their natural habitat. Enjoy a birds-eye view of your cruise ship as well as historical landmarks such as Duval Street, which runs north to south from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. See Fort Zachary Taylor, built in 1866 and used during the 1898 Spanish–American War. Also fly over the brightly painted Southernmost Point, a buoy marking the southernmost point in the continental United States. And be sure have your camera ready for great photos of shipwrecks, stingrays and sharks you may see along the way.
