The Marquesas Keys are a 6 km (4 mi) in diameter, uninhabited, pristine island group of the Lower Keys Census County Division. About 50 km (30 mi) west of Key West, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Gulf of Mexico, the Marquesas islets are the best place to explore the unspoiled wilderness.

Have you ever thought of how paradise must be like? It should definitely be a pristine and breathtaking scenery surrounded by sea. Crystal waters thriving with all types of tropical fish and creatures, like Roseate Spoonbills or blacktip sharks. What if we told you that paradise is a place on earth and you can have the opportunity to explore it in the most exciting and adventurous way?

The story goes like this… Many millions of years ago a meteorite struck the sea and formed a circular group of ten islands. Those islands have been uninhabited ever since and are waiting for you to explore them with your kayak.

And to make it even more exciting, how about combining sailing with paddling? Local schools offer a multi-day adventure in the Marquesas Keys. Three days on board with well trained crew and guide. While the local school, as your host, provides you great accommodations, healthy meals and engaging eco-education, you will have the chance to experience the greatest adventure of your life, but with safety.

Paddling from sunrise to sunset, exploring mangrove tunnels and visiting coral sand beaches are only a few of the things in your schedule. There are few restrictions though. Key West Kayak Adventure is limited to four guests and is better suited for experienced paddlers, with good physical shape and capable of paddling up to 40 km (25 mi). Kayaks, paddles and safety equipment are provided, so all you need to have with you is your enthusiasm and a strong sense of adventure!
