Sailing the Florida Keys

Have you ever wondered what it is like to sail in the Florida Keys? Well it is a bit like sailing in the Caribbean without all the traffic and crowded anchorages that you find down island. The clarity and beauty of our teal blue ocean, the coral reef exploration while diving or snorkeling, the close proximity to gulf stream fishing, and the chasing of your lobster dinner are all part of our everyday sailing journey here in our own "little Caribe."

The beautiful Florida Keys
The Keys are easy to get to. From Key Largo to Key West many good anchorages can be found. For those with a yearning to experience more adventure, a trip to the Marquesas Islands or the Dry Tortugas and Fort Jefferson will give you some great offshore experience. Why not come and explore a piece of your paradise here in the Florida Keys? You will be happy you did.
