See You At Sunset!

We Key West locals have a saying: “See you at sunset.” It speaks to the enchantment that surrounds the ritual of watching the sun bid farewell to the day over our fairytale waters. The allure of Key West’s sunsets is so powerful that it has been elevated to an art form, particularly through the renowned Mallory Square Sunset Celebration

What started as a casual gathering of free spirits in the 1960s has now transformed into a vibrant nightly arts festival. Crowds of revelers gather on the docks bringing good vibes and merriment while surrounded by jugglers, musicians, and other performers who add their touch of magic. Even in the thick of the circus atmosphere, the setting sun owns center stage, painting the sky with vivid hues and captivating the hearts of all who witness it.

The Sunset Sail, Key West Experience

When it comes to experiencing the true essence of a Key West sunset, Danger Charters knows how to deliver an extraordinary adventure. Suffice it to say, we do it right: sailing our picture-perfect craft into the honey-gold “Floribbean” sunset, embracing the tranquility and beauty of the moment. Watch in awe (beverage in hand) as our skilled crew hoists the sails, propelling us smoothly across the shimmering waters, creating an ambiance of pure bliss.
