We would unreservedly recommend these guys for a yacht charter. We booked from the UK with no difficulty at all. Captain Albert is the owner of the business and he is extremely easy to deal with by email and telephone. We chartered a boat with crew for half a day and had a mini adventure from Key West out into the Gulf of Mexico. Brian, our skipper, and Jerry, the first mate, were excellent company and gave us the perfect balance between time to relax on our own and information and stories about where we were sailing and Key West in general. We went out on our first full day in Key West and it was a brilliant way to relax into the Key West state of mind for the rest of our trip. Bring your own beer and Captain Albert will supply the sandwiches! We will certainly come back.

Staying on these yachts is the best way to experience the true heart of Key West which, in my opinion, is the historical and surviving nautical, waterman, sailing, fishing and water adventure that thrives in this Historic Seaport. We stayed on the Obsession, a 37' O Day monohull sloop which is older but is well maintained. This vessel is fully functional and ready to sail. In fact I was very impressed with how well she did sail. Our crew was Capt. Joe and Mate Jordan who were great folks, very knowledgable and accommodating to our every request. My wife and I have sailed and boated the US East coast and Caribbean and vacationed around water for 25 years and this experience was one of the best. The dock is a 5-10 minute walk to most of the best restaurants, bars and main attractions yet very peaceful at night.

Presidents Day weekend:

Capt Al, Captain Steve & Brenda,

What a fantastic time we had here with you. Thank you for your friendship, knowledge, cuisine and making our vacation one to remember.

Our kids each got a souvaneir dolphin around the corner, and named them Steve and Brenda.

Snorkeling, fishing, sailing, dinner, and drinks with friends. I dont think I can do Key West any other way again.

Fresh catch at Dante's. Dinner at Smokin Tuna, Key Lime Pie, s'mores on "hobo island". We've enjoyed at all more than words can say.

Thank you all so much,
The Grohes

We took the sunset cruise on the Jolly II Rover (the ship with the red sails) and had a blast. The captain (Bill) and the rest of the crew truly made this an adventure to remember! From firing the "canon" at other ships to their cheerful demeanor, it was obvious that they love what they do and shared their enthusiasm with their passengers.

The best way to view a magnificent Key West sunset!!

Our adventure was ok. We did way more motor sailing than we liked but when we asked the capt that we wanted to sail some he obliged. Water was too rough for snorkeling. Tried but didn't see much of anything. Moondance was comfortable - a bit old. Food plentiful. Albert & Ronda are very nice &easy to deal with.
