The Spanish founded Key West in 1513 while the Indians have been in the keys since 2000BC. The natural harbor would provide shelter during storms while the fresh water well would enable survival when ships stopped for resupply. As commerce increased in the 1800's the city became a very wealthy town. Turtle harvesting, cigar making, sponge farming, and of course fishing would sustain this seaport until tourism today. This tour will share all that and more.
