Key West Shark Adventures Information
On our Key West shark adventures we bring you into the saltwater flats, you will be transported aboard a sleek catamaran that has a minimal draft in order to maneuver through the shallows of this area. Our Key West shark adventures experts then draw the sharks to the boat by releasing an alluring scent into the water. As the odor drifts out into the currents and flats, the sharks will detect it with their remarkably sensitive sense of smell. You will be astounded by the amount of swarming sharks that will surround the hull.
The shark species that may be viewed on these adventures include bull sharks, lemon sharks, nurse sharks, and black tip sharks. Occasionally, passengers on our shark watching expeditions may even spot a tiger shark or a hammerhead. Since the waters in flats are usually crystal-clear, viewers will have no difficulty seeing every small detail of these alpha hunters.
