When you think of Key West, Florida, what comes to your mind? Turquoise water, world-class fishing, colorful culture, interesting history, delicious key lime pie, amazing sunsets…? The list of what this tropical paradise is known for could go on and on.
With the addition of Galveston, Texas, and Miami as new homeports, Disney Cruise Line is returning to the vibrant city of Key West on select Western Caribbean and Bahamas sailings.
Here are just a few ways you can explore the southernmost city in the continental U.S.:
Trolley, Train and Bike Tours
Sit back and relax on the Old Town Trolley or Conch Train Tour or get a little exercise on the Key Lime Island Bike Tour. All three are great ways to enjoy numerous Key West historical sites and local hot spots, including a tasting of delicious key lime treats at the world-famous Kermit’s Key Lime Pie Shoppe!
Water and Wildlife Adventures
Explore the waters of the Key West Wildlife Refuge, home to a vast array of beautiful marine life, on the Snorkel Kayak and Dolphin Watching Adventure. Be sure to have your camera ready as you might see dolphins jumping and playing in a special area known to the locals as the “Dolphin Playground.” You can also enjoy the water from above on a glass bottom boat, sail through it on a catamaran, or dive in on a Snuba tour, an activity that combines the ease or snorkeling with the thrill of scuba diving.
If you’ve been to Key West, tell us in the comments about your favorite spots around the island. And don’t forget, when the ship’s in port, venture ashore!

Pirates Soul museum is closed. I live in Key West so if anybody has any questions feel free to contact me.
I love Key West! It is such a casual, relaxing place to visit. And, it has one of my favorite Restaurant’s – Louie’s Backyard. It’s a beautiful, water’s edge restaurant with three tiers of decking for gorgeous views. The food is incredible as well!
Key Lime ice cream bar at the Key Lime Pie shop. The bike tour sounds like fun.
If you’re into pirates – Pirate Soul museum is fun. Mel Fisher Maritime museum is interesting as is Hemingway house. And if you have time, the paella at El Meson de Pepe is divine!!
I just love walking down Duval street and eating/drinking at some of the locally owned establishments. Definitely enjoy some conch chowder and fritters. YUM.
This looks beautiful. I would like to go on one of the Cruises sometime next year. Fingers crossed. 🙂
One of my all-time favorite DCL ports o’ call!
We did the Key Lime Island Bike Tour and it was great!
Out tour guide was knowledgable and fun and riding a bike is a great way to see the city! We biked almost 7.5 miles in about 2.5hrs and I (as lazy, non-exerciser) never felt sore…and it was only the 2nd day of our cruise!!
Highly Highly Highly Recommended!!
I’m partial to the Hemingway house tour and the Key West Aquarium.
