About Us



Key West’s Original Watersports Company (est. 1984)

Sunset Watersports has been family owned and operated since inception, starting out on Smathers Beach as the first parasailing operation not only in Key West but also in the United States. Since our origination in 1984, Sunset Watersports has consistently grown to continue to offer new and original watersports to our Key West locals and visitors alike. We’re also home to the world’s first all-day watersports adventure — the “Do It All” combo package, offering 13 different watersports activities for one low price.  Activities include WaveRunners, parasailing, snorkeling, banana boat rides, paddle boards, windsurfing, hydro bikes, waterskiing, climbing wall, giant inflatable slides, kneeboards, kayaking, and water trampoline. This Key West adventure is GUARANTEED TO WEAR YOU OUT!

Our Mission

We provide first-class watersports activities at a reasonable price with first-class service and equipment. Additionally, we strive to provide an atmosphere where our employees can advance and be part of the Key West community, raise families, and give to those less fortunate. We believe that providing a fun-filled, drug-free atmosphere is essential to achieving the goal of good family values. Sunset Watersports Key West offers more watersports activities, trips, and tours than any other Key West watersports company and is the oldest existing parasail company in the USA.

A Message from the Owner

We believe in respecting all races, genders, and religions so that we may advance as one human family.
