Warm weather has once again brought the tarpon back in force. Good catches have been reported all around Key West, with almost every boat getting hooked into large fish. Favorable tides, light winds and warm weather are predicted until Saturday, which means good fishing should continue all week.
78°F and partially cloudy today at Parrot Key with a light 5mph Southeast wind. This is ideal snorkeling or beach weather, ocean conditions should be very calm. Taking advantage of the flat ocean conditions to go reef fishing is suggested on a day like this, especially because currents are predicted to be mild.
It’s 74°F and sunny today at Parrot Key with a light wind coming in from the Northeast. The constant Northeast wind has swept away all of the seaweed and other debris from the beaches over the last couple of days. It’s going to be sunny all week and we also have a full moon coming, so day or night this is a great time to head to the shore. Sunset today is at 6:22 pm, festivities at Mallory Square are expected to start around 4:30 pm.
Happy Valentines Day from Parrot Key Hotel and Resort! We Sincerely hope you and your valentine have a romantic holiday.
One of the most interesting and original parts of Sunset festival, and probably its longest running act, is Dominique the Catman and his Flying Circus Cats. Growing up in Key West Dominique’s act was my absolute favorite. This act is like nothing else you can imagine; it includes cat acrobatics, cat herding, cat comedy, flaming rings, tightropes, juggling and much more. Dominique is an expert performer himself, telling jokes, keeping all of his performers moving at once, and making sure everyone is very entertained. Parrot Key is only a short bike or cab ride away from Mallory square, where you can catch the Catman almost every day for three performances before, during, and after sunset. Trust me, it’s well worth seeing.
Key West is cooling a little this weekend to 70 degrees (warmest in America!). There will be some clouds and a little rain, but in general it should be very nice, with a full week of sun starting Monday. Sunset is going to be at about 6:20. The festivities at Mallory Square will be starting at around 4:00, or if you prefer a more intimate setting, Parrot Key’s Sunset Pier is now open for guests.
