Get your fill of these bivalve mollusks Cedar Key Seafood Festival featuring more than 100 arts and crafts exhibits, live music at several locations and of course lots of great, local seafood. Don’t miss Tony’s Restaurant’s world famous clam chowder! The Cedar Key Seafood Festival is one of the only times you can tour historic Seahorse Key, three miles from Cedar Key. A shuttle boat from downtown takes visitors to tour the island and its lighthouse, which was built before the Civil War. Seahorse Key is now part of Cedar Key National Wildlife Refuge.
The lighthouse will be open on Saturday. The boat trip is $20 and involves a half-hour ride to and from the island. Tours leave every hour on the half hour from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and reservations are not required. Arrive early, as everyone must be off the island by 3 p.m. (Seahorse Key is on your own)
Package includes Motor coach transportation & a bottle of water
