Our guests are people who want to have some fun, do something a bit more off the beaten path, and take a break from the crowds to enjoy a genuine
Key West sailing Experience
There’s tons of things to do on the water, and it’s not just about sunset sailing! Come sailing with us to snorkel the barrier reef or the backcountry, take a daysail off the island, have your wedding or private party, toast the sunrise or sail under the full moon. We love sailing, and that’s what we’re here to do! Join us on one of our boats and experience the Florida Keys from the best place you can—out on the water!
Our lovely flagship, 33ft sloop High Tide departs daily from downtown Key West, and our 50ft ketch Conch West and 32ft schooner Free Spirit run every day out of Stock Island for some great blue-water sailing and reef snorkelling. We’ll shut off the engine to allow you to enjoy the peace and beauty of the keys all around while you help raise sail, take a turn at the helm…or sit back and relax!
