Key West Calling! Where Do You Spend Your Winter?

Right now if you are sitting at home or in your cubicle it is possible that a sailing vacation has been a fantasy.  With our Company it is always designed your way to fit your lifestyle and your budget.  Since 1995 it has been a pleasure to help make a sailing getaway affordable and fun for several hundred people each of those many years.  Families, couples, weddings, engagements, special birthdays, even remembrances at sea all have a place in our history.

When you stay with http://www.keywestsailingadventure.com it’s your boat, no one else lives aboard – unless you go long distance traveling or choose to stay out on an at sea excursion; and you are in a safe harbor located on the Island of Key West, downtown Key West, with amenities nearby such as a full service laundry and full size bathrooms, nearby restaurants, pools, museums;  and we know you will choose us when you see Google Maps has our location 201 William Street, Key West, FL 33040 just steps away from all the fun of Mallory Square, museums, shops,  and the nightly sunset festival, with all the fun music and bar/restaurant scene.

As a fun alternative to a motel/hotel, feel safe and you are protected on three sides by the harbor, 24 hour security and in a marina slip attached to land, not left at anchor on a non-working vessel with scheduled trips by a small dinghy to land.  Our boat’s bathrooms, electricity, water and air conditioning all work!  If it is chilly (for us that is around 70 degrees) we have small space heaters upon request.  You can choose to take the charter included with your stay and sail package and do what Gene and Anna did; take a 24-48 hour away from the docks excursion as an upgrade with captain and mate, (who do say aboard and prepare meals, take you sailing, tell you about the islands and only stay during off shore trips) this charter includes all your food, fuel, provisions.  When you look at the various options on the water, “know before you go” where are you going to be.   Rumor has it that many unscrupulous folks are putting boats for rent on Airbnb, Home Away and Expedia who are not United State Coast Guard approved vessels or staffing.   We are licensed by the City of Key West, also insured to guarantee a safe time, have 24 hour staff available to help in a moment’s notice.   And, should you need a last minute cancellation, we just reschedule your stay any time in the future when you are able to return to Key West!

As with any innovation like our business, of course we expect imitations.  They pop up every few years and we watch them eventually close or disappear.  When that happens we again get the panicked calls “I rented a boat and now – it’s gone!”  Be advised and be informed; see our many reviews on Trip Advisor and Home Away!  See you soon!

Tropical feeling may call your name this fall and winter.  You may be surprised how lush, green and colorful Key West is October – December.  Taking a charter stay and sail  with meals on your own at any of the five star restaurants around your docks, or sailing out on an excursion with provisions for as many days as you want can take you into a tropical tranquil turquoise sea with dolphins, turtles and fish swimming like a live rainbow all around you.   Steps away from downtown Key West on the Island Key West and next to many of the sites and sounds you want to see, stay aboard a sailboat and live like a local may have at the historic seaport.

Key West Sunset Sailing Engagement

If you are thinking about a tropical setting for your engagement how about at sunset on one of our sailboats?  We just did this engagement special surprise last week and then over the weekend had another from Ft. Meyers by way of the Key West Ferry decide to take their engagement sunset and plan their April Wedding.  You can custom design a getaway and take off for an excursion overnight on anchor for a 24 hour secluded spot next to an uninhabited island.  October, November and December in Key West are amazing and mild weather like an early summer day.  Call me 305-304-4911 and let’s start planning your special event, engagement, wedding, anniversary or mile marker birthday!

 

Enjoy!

Key West Fine Cuisine Charters Will Enjoy!

Louie’s Back Yard once was just a patio with a gathering of friends back a few years ago. From those days that I recall long ago, it has grown into something of an institution as a standard in fine dining.  From time to time, when a chef leaves an establishment you will notice a change in cuisine and menu.  On a small island word gets out quick when there is a change and the crowd finds new places to enjoy.   Now with our recent visit, we find that it is once again well worth the trip to the Atlantic Ocean side for either a wonderful way to watch a sunset with cocktails overlooking the ocean (and a dog’s park to watch dogs frolic in the frothy waves below deck) or like we did with Debi and Joe visiting from our sailboat, 42 ft Moon Dance, join the others on the “afterdeck” or you can choose indoors, for a culinary Sunday afternoon delightfully delicious brunch!  There is the tiki level, two after deck levels and several indoor levels that are intimate and special dining experiences occur.  Since Ronda and I have not been back to Louie’s in awhile this was a true treat.  We often recommend to our guests to stay on board and just walk to many of the places near the boats that can more than meet your needs but Louie’s Backyard may be back on the map for your next on land dining delight.

Is it the weekend yet?  Call us for your fall and winter getaway soon!  305-304-4911.

Key West Charter California Friends

We are still talking about what an outstanding sailing day that we had!  There is more fun video that our friends/ guests took we haven’t even seen yet.  Watch the whole video for best effect of what it looks like from sailing and seeing a turtle, watching a sunset and then the moon rise.  There were a couple of folks that did not return this year but there were the next generation of young people to come in their stead.  Bittersweet not having some of the group.  What a fine group and a new generation with their hair braided fully immersed into the Bahamian Village on the outskirts of downtown.  We are hoping this becomes a new annual event.  Best and fondest wishes!

Our best, Ted Burnett and Gang!

When you visit Key West and stay on board one of our sailboats, we like to give you some input on the restaurants nearby around you as well as those just a short drive or taxi trip on the main arteries of Key West.  There are secret nooks and crannies in any town, USA where the locals find the “secret spots”.  This was one of them!  Grunts looks just like someone’s back yard next to a parking lot, 409 Caroline, Key West, Florida.  Thank you Teri Fainberg for inviting us to try something we have never even seen ourselves! AND – A Very  Special Thanks to Harvey Hirsch who encouraged us to get out and take culinary adventures.

 

Enjoy!

Come Down To See Key West And Sail!

 

The only thing blooming here  – flowers!  The algae is NOT in South Florida or the Florida Keys so do come down and enjoy our amazing reefs for a half or full day sail.  Some will be more adventurous and want to get out there and really get into the island life next to an uninhabited island or anchor off in a lagoon.

Visibility amazing and clear; turtles, sea rays, dolphins and reefs loaded with fish.

Why wait?
