Do a Key West Bike Tour Like a LOCAL!
This tour is so much fun, even blind people have done it! No, really! It's immersive--the things you see, hear, taste, touch--you just can't get that riding on anything with a motor.

Now don't get me wrong, those tours where you're riding on something with a motor are fun too, there just very different.
And I'm not saying better, either, it's just that a Key West bike tour is more "Stop and smell the roses" as opposed to, say, a Key West trolley tour. And I mean that literally! Bike tours will stop and go into detail with you. You'll experience it with all of your senses, and in my opinion, that's how you do a tour.
And man, are the tours that I recommend an experience!
Why should you use my recommendations?
For starters, as I explain on my homepage, I began this website because for years I've watched some of these Key West Florida & Florida Keys companies, and some of the people that work for them, say and do some absolutely atrocious shit. Remember, most of the people you see in those "Information" Booths, and some on the phones when you call a company work on a commission-only basis with no salary, and are apt to say anything to you to get you "off the fence" if you're being indecisive.
I'm not saying all of them do this, of course.
But if you suspect that someone got over on you in any way during your trip to Key West Florida and the Florida Keys, it takes away from your impression of what the Keys are:
Cool, laid-back, and legit. Real. Honest.
And that really pisses me OFF.
Secondly, I give a portion of all profits to local charities, because I feel that it's the right thing to do. As a big believer in karma, living in Key West Florida and the Florida Keys is ridiculously expensive, and there are folks here that can really use some help.
I mean, even if you have very little, there's always people that are doing worse than you, right?
Also keep in mind that the prices I get for you are highly competitive, maybe even the cheapest, because I bring some of these companies a fair amount of business. I'm not gonna get rich doing this, but it helps me to eat/drink/ride/get in for free a lot of the places I go, so it doesn't suck to be me! ;-)
So if you understand and believe in what I'm doing, I hope that you'll book through Freshwater Dave Key West, 'cause I'm trying to look out for you and our island's reputation.
And make some beer money (hey, I'm being honest!).
If not, I'm sorry to hear that, but either way, I hope you have a great time visiting Key West Florida and the Florida Keys!
(Oh, and if you could please "like" and "follow" Freshwater Dave Key West on Facebook and Twitter, and leave a comment below, that'd be cool, too!)
Kids will do bike tours. Which is good, since I don't recommend bringing them into a bar.
Everyone is invited on a Key West bike tour, too! Ever heard of a Tandem Bike?
I wasn't kidding earlier, a blind woman did go on a bike tour, and said it was one of the greatest experiences of her life! Sounds like a really cool person, too.
As for the younger and older folks, they can usually be accommodated via a tandem bike, child bike seat, or that funny-looking extension thingy that's attached to an adult bike for the in-between-sized child.
Groups? No problem. The bike tours that I recommend can accommodate groups large or small. Bachelorette parties, corporate groups, families--if you like, you can "charter" your own private tour!
If the Key West bike tour isn't enough for you, a two-day, Florida Keys bike tour may be just the thing.
Oh, so you're a biking bad-ass? How about a one or two-day tour of the entire Florida Keys?
For a serious bike tour, how about a one or two-day ride covering the entire 100+ miles of the Florida Keys? You'll start at the top of the Keys, in Key Largo, and ride to the halfway point in Marathon (stopping for drinks, lunch, and some sightseeing along the way), where you'll check into your hotel, relax and have a sunset dinner. You'll finish the trip on day two, of course stopping for lunch and drinks and some more sightseeing, ending up at the Southernmost Point monument. There's a van for emergencies, so don't worry.
The one-day tour, known a the "Century Ride", is for the hard-core, 'cause, you know, riding a bicycle 100 miles in one day is no joke. Only the serious need apply.
Sounds like fun, huh? It is! Reserve your spot below, and do a Key West bike tour to remember!
About Your Reservation
After you make your reservation, I'll send you a confirmation, along with all necessary information, and a phone number where you can talk, text, chat, etc., to your heart's content about any questions, changes, rescheduling, or what have you. It won't be immediate, more like a half-hour or so, as who I'm using can change depending on who I think may be doing a better job at that particular time, which is why it's important for you to leave me a message about your trip after you're finished, good or bad.
And don't worry, the companies that I recommend are legitimate and experienced. New tour operators pop up from time to time (and there's nothing wrong with that), but I'd rather work with a company that's been in the Keys for a while, as new companies have been known to disappear, along with any deposits they'd collected... Just sayin'.
