Key West - the city and the island is only two by four miles wide. If this is where you want to stay, know that there are several islands that share the same postal zip code.
There is only one KEY WEST. Make sure that if you are comparing our boats with other "cheaper" prices that add extra fees for cleaning and required sailing fee separate; charter included in your rates. The next island over Stock Island/Lower Keys is a fishing and shrimping village, where you will be 20 minutes away and $30 dollar a day taxi ride to get to Key West and you may be next to a homeless shelter, jail, local dump or on the other side a fictitiously named marina, isolated from the real Key West, and expect to travel through some older undeveloped island communities without any attractions just a couple of restaurants, and NOT in the actual City of Key West or the island of Key West.
Always Be Informed- Be an educated traveler:
Check if a boat is less per night than our boats, if they add charges later; our fees include cleaning set up up and your sail time on a beautifully maintained sailboat. Check the condition of your vessel before boarding. We want to make sure you are happy.
Get their address see GOOGLE Maps and Google Earth and know before you go!
Ask - "Where is your boat on Google Maps"? "How long have you been in business?" Ask "Do you have a licensed United States Coast Guard approved captain connected with your sailboat or vessel in the event of an emergency?" and "are professionals on call to make your stay comfortable in the event of weather event or any equipment or service failure"?
Since 1995 rest assured that our staff is dependable.
But if you do want to get away from it all just take our original 24 hour Key West Sailing Adventure excursion with all meals included. One, two or three nights, or as many nights at anchor and all day sailing as many days as you wish. Special pricing for several nights stay. Call for a custom special package. Our central location at the end of the chain of the Florida Keys on the island of Key West, makes it easy to make choices into the Gulf Of Mexico or the Atlantic as to the weather and tides or your whim.
Argh me mateys! Be prepared to have fun and adventure!

About the owner: Captain Albert Tropea, Jr Once worked with Proctor and Gamble families and the Helene Curtis Company as personal sailing captain. While working in Key Largo with a maintenance company taking care of all hospitality related needs from the homes, to designing landscapes, maintaining yachts, Captain Albert realized that the missing component in vacations in the Florida Keys was the boatel or boat and breakfast style of adventure vacations. Captain Albert decided to bring the experiences he had with the very wealthy to the hard working families who longed for the sailing experience with their spouses, friends or families. Captain Albert has sailed all over the world from being a Everglades then Bahamas Guide,to sailing the Greek Islands and a number of foreign countries. Let Captain Albert or his hand picked captains and trained mates show you the wonders of what makes the area around the Florida Keys so unique. Our captains know many places that the big 40 plus person boats cannot get to and do not know about. Sail with a crew attending your needs, feel free to be involved with sailing or lifting the sails. It is the goal of the Company to have you experience direct contact with the wind, the sails and the sea with confidence if you one day want to buy your own boat. Feel like you own the boat by telling our crew what you wish to have for an experience whether it is more swim/snorkeling, fishing, sailing. You are the one in charge as if you own the sailboat.
Why the Owner Chose Historic Seaport:
Key West boasts over three million visitors a year and for good reason. All year round the temperatures are milder than anywhere else even in the summer. Winter is non existent; come down and thaw out with us for your winter retreat. There are only a few days in January where the chill in the air will be down to a low of 45 for night time temperatures, high of 65 only a few days in January the rest of the year is spring like temperatures. Even the summers the highs are rarely above 92 degrees and nights and ocean breezes keep it mild at nights. 'Gonna go where the sun keeps shining, through the pouring rain' was a line from the song written about Key West! Bring your summer dream weddings and honeymoon plans to us and we help you design a special memory. Key Wes is second only to Las Vegas for easy relaxed weddings in a variety of settings especially on board your own sailing vessel, married next to a famous Key West Sunset. Since it takes from 17 to 25 years to get one of the coveted Key West Bight docks, we just recently added a third boat after waiting almost 20 years. It is well worth the wait, with a short three block stroll to Mallory Square nightly art festival and the famous bars and restaurants along the Duval Street district. There are museums and other attractions close by and the Ft. Meyers Ferry Boat is just a few yards from our E Dock behind the Wyland Murial at 201 William. The Historic Seaport has shopping along the board walk with many restaurants to choose from. Still funky and fun, Schooner Wharf Bar, Turtel Kraals and many old local's favorites still at historic seaport after many years with live music all the time. Restaurant near the Ferry boat has live music, outdoor dining and you are welcome to use the pool when you purchase your lunch or drinks with them like many pools in town. So much to do and see, park your car and bike or walk almost everywhere. Or take a taxi from the airport. Enjoy a simpler life Key West living.
The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:
Unique benefits to staying aboard a sailing vessel is to enjoy the life the way it once was in the historic seaport once known for fishing, conch farming and shrimp or lobster fishermen. Feel like you own the boat you stay aboard and then go sailing for your stay aboard and sail charter or choose to take off completely away from it all for as many days you wish to charter with meals and crew providing everything you need. It's your dream, why not live it out this time? You can stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast room anywhere any time; have it all old Key West style and feel like an explorer with family and friends or that significant other. Weather is usually mild no matter what time of the year. Sailing with our crew is safe, learn a few sailing tips, see wild life like dolphins, fish and sea turtles in their natural habitat. Relaxed style of vacationing, pack light, sandals, shorts and swim wear and a few t shirts; bring a light jacket and a pair of casual long pants for nights or when at sea. Bring a pair of good walking shoes, no need to bring heels as you will want to explore and walk as much as you feel comfortable to see the nuances of Key West. While at sea 24 hours, we provide meals and non alcohol drinks of course, with snorkel gear and fishing gear, no need to pack these items. When you take the helm once the captain gets you safely out of the harbor and sets a course, the feeling of adventure will sweep you away. Low tech environment, great for families to take a break from electronics even if for one day, there is so much to see at sea! Earn a 2 hour sunset sail for 2 nights stay at the docks for example. When you watch the sails unfurl, the feeling of exhilaration is exciting and deeply satisfying while living a lifestyle vacation for your special Key West vacation. The weather is usually ideal whether the weather is cold or hot where you are, it is perfect most days in Key West. Call and customize your special destination vacation.
