    What to Expect
    Arriving at the boat, you will be introduced to your Captain and Mate then you'll settle onto the boat for a quick familiarization and safety briefing and anything you may wish to keep in the coolers will be stowed - then you're ready for departure.

    Casting off lines you will motor out of the harbor and then the sails will be raised. If you want to assist the crew - you are more than welcome!

    Once the sails are set your Captain will shut off the engine and head out into the bright tropical waters surrounding Key West to enjoy the sun, feel the wind lift the boat and explore the rich wildlife preserve that surrounds this beautiful island. You have only to ask if you wish to have a turn at the helm; with many years sailing experience your captain is more than happy to stand by while you feel the power of the wind and enjoy the peace and delight that comes from travel under sail.

    With a host of local knowledge at your disposal, your crew will point out areas or objects of interest, and of course they are always on the look out for the frequently-seen turtles and dolphins that inhabit the area, as well as a vast array of seabirds and other wildlife. Sail around Sunset Key and take a look at the Key West's most fantastic National wildlife preserve

    As the tour nears its end, you will power back into the harbor and you are free to enjoy the remainder of your day in sunny Key West!
