Joyce & the Half Shell Raw Bar sign on Harbor Walk at Key West Bight Marina
I think Joyce may be trying out for the next "Half Shell raw bar" girl. What do you think?
Set in the heart of the Historic
Seaport at Key West Bight, the Half Shell Raw Bar is an
authentic Key West
fish house. Once a shrimp packing building, it has stayed true to
its blue-collar harbor front heritage.
The Half Shell raw bar is truly a "Taste of Old Key West!"
Today it is a traditional Key West Raw Bar & great Key West seafood restaurant serving oysters, clams, shrimp, more!
A low key restaurant for casual lunch or dinner. Settle down to an informal atmosphere, local characters, great bar and waterfront dining. It's a little piece of Old Key West at the Historic Key West Seaport Harbor.
I think the Half Shell raw bar is one of the restaurants in Key West that will cook your catch for you, but do not hold me to this.
Beach Cat at Key West Bight Marina
Beach Cat is the name of the boat pictured below.
Beach Cat is a unique catamaran sailing out of Key West Bight Marina
This is the Beach Cat. It is catering to customers with the 6-clear kayaks mounted on the back of the Beach Cat.
How cool would it be to paddle over reefs and coral heads in a clear kayak.

Turtle museum outside Turtle Kraals Restaurant and Bar on Harbor Walk
The restored Turtle Kraals museum is dedicated to educating the public about sea turtle awareness.
In the mid to late 1800s Key West was the center for turtle processing and canning. Turtle soup was considered a delicacy in parts of the United States and especially in Europe.
Turtles caught throughout the Caribbean were shipped to Key West, kept alive by cruelly placing them on their backs.
Upon arrival in Key West, they were kept caged by the docks in what were called 'kraals' until they were slaughtered.
By 1970 the turtle population had been devastated. Turtle canneries went out of business, and the turtle trade came to an end in '71 with the passage of the Endangered Species Act.
Although turtle populations have recovered, today they continue to struggle against man. Plastic and other man-made synthetic materials are being consumed by sea turtles that mistake the debris for food. Unable to digest the matter, the turtles die from starvation.
The museum is often rehabilitating a sea turtle which will be housed in a tank by the entrance. Many locals genuinely care about the well being of sea turtles and the museum does a good job of informing the public about past and present dangers.
