Kermit and his famous pie

The “unofficial” official dessert of Key West has to be the Key Lime Pie. It is served in restaurants and shops all over the island. Many of them claiming to have the BEST KEY LIME PIE! Travelers are encouraged to spend their vacation time sampling different recipes to decide which is their favorite. Do you like meringue or whipped cream on top? Regular pie crust or graham cracker? Or maybe a bit of chocolate? Whether you are on a quest or just want to sample a piece, be sure to stop by Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Pie Shop. Along with your piece of pie, you can purchase just about any Key Lime product imaginable. Plus, seeing Kermit in his chef’s hat, poised to toss his pie at the passengers on the Old Town Trolley or anyone strolling by…is good entertainment and makes a cute photo.

Swimming Dolphin

There are certainly lots of superstitions concerning weddings. The most common are “it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day”…”it’s bad luck for the bride and groom to see other before the wedding”…etc. In Key West, we say it’s good luck if dolphin attend your wedding. This is a very common occurrence on our sunset sail weddings. It is not unusual for a pod of dolphin to approach us and swim along, playing in the wake of the boat. On our last sail, we were surrounded by a pod of about 8 adults and a baby. This is always very exciting, not only for the bride and groom, but even for the locals who have seen it lots of times.
