Creating Confident Sailors with Easygoing Personalized Training

Florida Keys Vacations Like No Other

We believe in taking time to relax and to enjoy the beauty of the Keys. Snorkel and fish, dinghy around the mangroves and socialize with other cruisers. We will take you to local island restaurants where you can enjoy fresh seafood, tropical drinks and live music. Your couple captains, who are both Coast Guard licensed, provide a gentle and calm sailing experience. Let us show you how enjoyable the cruising life can be.

Snorkeling is great in the clear waters of the Florida Keys. We also enjoy sharing our knowlege of the Keys ecology and history. The natural beauty of our area is precious to us. Let us help you understand how the complex ecosystems of the two national parks we sail through work.  Learn about fishing under sail. Enjoy a seafood dinner. Relax with a drink at sunset,  read a book, or help sail the boat. Of course we love to help you learn about how much fun it is to act as skipper of your own boat in the future. It will be a vacation you won’t forget.

Enjoy an Evening Exploring South Miami Beach

Start or end your trip with a visit to South Beach, where “the bronzed and the beautiful work, play, shop, and let loose...where money and sex flow like the ocean surf...where stately palms sway over the languid curves and artful angles of a world of deco delight...” by Bill Wisser, author of South Beach: America’s Riveria, Miami Beach, Florida.
