In order to accommodate the large number of powerboats and the race courses just off the coast of Key West, many of the water sports and Key West tours that regularly head out must change their structure or times.

Scuba diving trips on the 11th and 15th of November will consist of one 3-tank dive, departing at 11:30AM. These days will not have the usual morning and afternoon dives with this one mid-day 3-tank dive as a substitute. On the 13th, Key West scuba diving trips offered by Best On Key West will be departing earlier than their usual departure time with a 7:30AM departure time for the morning trip and 12PM departure time for the afternoon dive (with check-ins a half hour before departure).
