The warmth and sun of Florida is a major attraction any time of year. Lounging in the sun or splashing around in the water of the Gulf of Mexico is a fun and relaxing way to while away the time on a Florida getaway, but you’ll want to make sure to experience some of the Siesta Key tours and activities the area has to offer. Pack your bags and prepare for fun in the sun, water, and even on land as you check out many of the exciting activities there are to do and see.
If you’re unsure of where to start with the Siesta Key tours and experiencing everything Siesta Key has to offer, hop on the trolley. Save the gas in your rental car for an off-island trip and conserve your own energy for the fun you’ll have at your chosen destination when you take the Siesta Breeze Trolley. Experience fun, free, round-trip service from Siesta Key Village all the way to the southernmost part of the island, with many stops in between. Hop on and off as you spot a new place to go explore.
Head down to Siesta Key Marina and you’ll see the many charter boats and cruises that aim to give you a special experience on the waters surrounding Siesta Key. Fishing excursions, snorkeling or scuba, and more are available for thrill- and adventure-seekers. For something a little less adrenaline-pumping, choose a dolphin cruise. Of course, you can ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ at dolphins and other marine wildlife safely from the shores of Siesta Key. An up-close look from a chartered tour boat will give you new appreciation for these majestic mammals. You’ll see more than dolphins! Keep your eyes open and your camera ready to capture glimpses of manatees, rays, and even whales at certain times of year. Any of these beautiful sea creatures might even come near the boat to swim alongside!
Gain a whole new perspective on where you’ve chosen to spend your time of relaxation and sail high over the water with Parasail Siesta. You’ll take off from the deck of their specially designed and USCG-approved parasailing boat to fly high above the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Reach heights up to 500 feet in the air! Keep watch on the water from your bird’s eye view for dolphins, turtles, manatees, stingrays, and other sea life. You can choose to stay dry throughout the flight or wear your bathing suit for a refreshing dip in the water before flying up again to come down safely on the deck. Bring your waterproof or disposable camera to capture the memories from your in-flight perspective. Parasail Siesta takes several professional digital camera pictures of your flight from the boat’s perspective and will provide you with a memory card at the end of the trip so you can develop your pictures at a later time. Rides are approximately 15 minutes of air time, but the whole excursion duration depends on the number of fliers.
Sunset Electric Bike Tour
Renting a beach cruiser or mountain bike from a bicycle rental company on the island is a great way to get around and add a little daily exercise to your vacation plans. Take a sunset ride to wind down for the evening. For a unique experience, trade that ‘regular’ bicycle for an electric bike! Endless Summer Eco Tours and Rentals offers a sunset electric bike tour of Siesta Key. The bikes have five-level pedal assist and on-demand throttle so you can give yourself as much or as little of a workout as you want as you ride along the shores of Siesta Key past Siesta Beach and Siesta Key Village to Patriot’s Point. Stop and view the flag-lowering ceremony conducted nightly by a local resident. Call out the name of a loved one in the armed forces and hear a bugle rendition of taps. After the ceremony, turn around and head back to the starting point. Book a private tour for your group or join others for a small-group public tour. All skill levels are welcome.
