The free sunset cruises are being offered to all first responders and their families throughout the Florida Keys.

Fury Water Adventures, based in the Florida Keys, is offering free live music sunset cruises this week to first responders who helped in rescue efforts after Hurricane Irma.

The cruises depart daily from Key West’s seaport.

Beer, wine, champagne, margaritas, sodas, and hot and cold appetizers are available on the catamaran, Commotion, as guests dance to the setting sun.

From Wednesday through Sunday the company will offer cruises free to all first responders and their families throughout the Keys.

Those eligible include Keys police, fire rescue, power-line technicians, tree-trimming service providers, Keys energy employees, Florida Keys Aquaduct Authority members and the Coast Guard.

“It’s Fury’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to all the men and women who have worked so hard to help in the recovery efforts over the past several weeks,” the company said in a statement.
