Soar Over Historical City Landmarks
Most people could never tire of exploring tropical Key West by foot – or better yet, by water! But if you’re up for something a little different, see Key West from the air on an exhilarating helicopter tour. Getting up in the air gives you a unique vantage point to see this palm-lined island in its entirety.
Soar over historical city landmarks, capture photos of sharks, dolphins, and stingrays, and look for sunken ships and reefs, easily visible in the clear blue water. Key West helicopter tours are the perfect way to commemorate a special event or just plan a vacation activity your family will be talking about for years to come.
See Key West from the Sky
Key West’s small size – just eight square miles – makes it an ideal destination for a helicopter tour. Once you’re up in the air you’ll quickly get a sense of the island’s layout and points of interest. As your air tour begins, look for landmarks like Smathers Beach and the vibrant red bricks of Fort Zachary Taylor, a National Historic Monument with the world’s largest collection of Civil War armament. Fly over the shops and restaurants at the waterfront Mallory Square and get a great view of Duval Street, downtown Key West’s main drag.
Beyond the island’s must-see landmarks, a Key West helicopter tour is great for spotting marine life and getting a bird’s-eye view of other nearby keys. Glimpse Wisteria Island, an uninhabited island visible from Mallory Square, as well as Sunset Key, an island located about 500 yards from Key West, only accessible by boat. Some helicopter tours take you over the Florida Keys backcountry shallows with amazing views of the Snipe and Mudd Keys. Be on the lookout for sea turtles, dolphins, and other marine life in this area.
