Ultimate Express

Want to experience one of Key West's combo multi-activity packages but do not have time for a full six hour experience? Then check out the Key West Ultimate Express, a 3.5 hour water journey that includes jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking, banana boat rides, and various water toys. This trip is great for people who want to get out on the water to experience some of the most highly-rated Key West watersports and activities. The tour runs two times a day, giving Key West visitors a wider variety of options.

This tour features some of our favorite Key West water activities. Jet skiing, for instance, is one of those Key West activities that you simply cannot pass up! Jet Skiing through the waters of the Gulf of Mexico gives you an exhilaration like no other, as you speed through the waters, feeling the strength and power of the jet ski, as you feel the tropics all around with the sun up above and the salty sea water beneath.

Parasailing is another time honored Key West experience that is easily guests' favorite. Imagine soaring up to 500 feet up in the air as you see the beautiful lower Florida Keys below. There is nothing quite like it! It is both thrilling and relaxing, and an experience that you are sure to remember for years to come!

Wrapping up this combo tour package is a fun and heart-pumping banana boat ride, relaxing kayaking, and water toys that will keep you laughing out loud throughout this whole journey. We provide snacks and drinks throughout the trip, keeping your hunger and thirst at bay. The Ultimate Express is becoming one of the most popular Key West activities so we highly suggest making reservations as far in advance as possible to not miss the opportunity to experience the non-stop fun of this tour!
