Parking is a bit tight in Key West due to the limited space on the island. If you have a hotel near historic old town, I would recommend leaving your car parked at the hotel’s parking lot and walking to all the shops and sights. Parking downtown is very tight and hard to find parking spots. There is a park and ride garage located on the corner of Caroline and Grinnell Streets. There are 308 parking spaces available.
The following are companies that will take you out in the local waters, either on dive or snorkel trips. There are also several companies that have booths on Duval Street and they also offer dive and snorkel trips. A half day of snorkeling was about $25. All phone numbers are in the (305) area code unless otherwise noted.
Phone for the main golf course in Key West is 305 294.5232. This course is open to the public and rental clubs are available. It is located on 6450 E. College Road. Their web site is: www.keywestgolf.com
