Interaction with Guests

My goal is to help you enjoy your stay in Key West. If it's water activities, I'm your man. If you only need some guide service, no problem. A Captain will meet you at boat on arrival, check with you daily on your needs. You will have my cell phone number and can call with questions.

Many times questions arrive about charters, day trips, fishing and diving.. Please research YKNOTKEYWEST for phone number and call for clarification.

The Neighborhood

We are in Stock Island out of the hustle/bustle of Duval Street. We have great restaurants and a lot of boats. Most commercial fishing still comes out of this area. We have a walking park only across the street. If you want to buy fresh fish right off the boat, this is the area.

                                      Loved it, but know what you're getting

                                      Raelyn P.Kennesaw, Georgia

                                      I loved staying on this boat, but you need to realize that this is a working fishing vessel set up to do charter work with some extended overnight trips - it is not a luxury boat. The galley has a very small oven and you'll be using a flat top griddle as a cook top, so don't plan on making big fancy meals.

                                      Likewise, the shower is a pretty small affair. Plan on strolling down to the bath house at the marina for your showers if you want a large shower with unlimited hot water.

                                      There was nothing better than sitting on the front of the boat looking over the marina in the evenings. Or sitting on the back with coffee in the mornings.

                                      It's a pretty short drive into the main part of Key West, and you can think of all the money you are NOT spending on a hotel down there. The Marina Hotel has a shuttle that runs back and forth and that can get you down there too.

                                      Nice experience but not again.

                                      Wendy K.Chapin, SC

                                      The boat was not bad. The beds were comfy but the counters etc could have been cleaner and the Internet wasn’t real good but we managed to get the Apple TV working. I figured out that besides the bathhouse which is a good walk away you could use the bathroom right next to the restaurant at the hotel. You also get use of the pool at the Perry hotel which was nice. But beware going to their Matt’s restaurant for dinner. It’s extremely overpriced and not good service. Overall it was about what we expected for staying on a small boat minus some electrical issues and the uncleanliness. Also I realize it’s key west but I feel it was overpriced.

                                      Owner's Response:

                                      Thank you. We try hard to keep clean and tidy. I'll pass comments on. Matts place offers discount between 6 to 8 pm. We also have Delunas which is very reasonable. Sometimes folks need to move around this market area, then they can make informed comparisons.

                                      The best relax vacation ever

                                      Many thanks for Ralph and my best friend Richard ,they made my vacation one of the best i spent in my entire life .

                                      Service and boat great. Location great.

                                      dawn r.

                                      This is a charter boat. Sleeps well in a nice marina. We enjoyed the stay. This is 4th trip on Yknot. Hope to come back.

                                      It's a fishing boat

                                      Beverly C.Mt juliet, TN

                                      We enjoyed our trip, but the boat is more for a guy fishing trip and not girl's get away.

                                      Owner's Response:

                                      Of course the boat is offered as a custom Diving and fishing charter boat. We have had many groups of mature women who enjoyed the experience and value. Not the Hilton, but clean and comfortable, close to pool and nice new marina. Sunrise is fantastic from the bow seats. If your a pinky up type, might not be for you.


                                      Stock Island, Key West, FL, USA

                                      We are located on Stock Island. Quiet area avoiding the hustle bustle of Duval Street, yet close enough to visit by free shuttle or cab. Other restaurants, such as "The Hogfish" are within walking distance. You can enjoy the ambiance without having them too close.
