Ship's bLog-Warming up in Key West

Yesterday, Albert and Ronda went to visit a friend from Panama near Mile Marker 76 and noticed that half the free world seemed to be driving in the Keys! Today and tomorrow Albert is taking guests out for half day "holiday" stay sail charters to the reefs. Although chilly to locals, it's spring like weather for anyone else. With the snowed in conditions and the airports north of Florida (New York and other locations) having delays, we guess that everyone that is tired of the cold is driving down.

My husband & I along with my brother-in-law and his wife drove from Toledo, Ohio area to Key West a trip we've taken for about 12years now. We've sailed on many sunset sails and by far this was the best experience ever! We sailed on the Adirondack II with captain Andy and only two other crew members, Chad & Mindy. They kept us all in line - safe - and entertained. What a beautiful evening had by all. Well worth the wait - and very affordable. Just believe that it takes folks that really enjoy their work to return their appreciation, affection, and love of the water! They know their stuff and shared their knowledge with us all. They even allowed us guests to take the wheel! Thank Captain Andy, Chad & Mindy for the greatest experience we've ever had on the water in Key West. You guys did an excellent job - and we hope that you are rewarded for it. Good help is hard to find these days - a true asset to the Classic Harbor Line. From the Tobers that sailed on Friday, April 30th, 2010 from all the way from Toledo, Ohio. (419)836-3709

    My wife, 11 year old daughter, and I stayed aboard the Wildthing for four wonderful nights. We did an overnight with Captain Albert and First Mate Nancy on my wife’s birthday. Nancy cooked us a great fish dinner and breakfast the next day. The weather (i.e. beginning of Tropical Storm Nichole) changed our itinerary somewhat, but Captain Albert was on top of the approaching weather and gave us sound options. We ended up with a great sail, sleeping under the moon, and watching the storms off in the horizon. Once the storm passed, we were able to make it to the reef two days later for a great snorkel (thank you Captain Brad and First Mate Rich). Truly, a great sailing and snorkeling adventure all around.

    We found the boat to be in very good shape and Nancy had it ready for our arrival. Yes, the boat has only the basic amenities, but this is what we liked about it. We were not looking for a cruise ship or the Hilton, but a solid sailing vessel that promised an adventure; and we found it at Key West Sailing Adventures. Wildthing sails well, is very comfortable, has a good air conditioning system that kept us cool on the hot and humid nights, a refrigerator that kept our drinks and snacks cold, a stereo system so we could listen to our MP3 and IPod , clean bedding and towels, and most importantly, character. Ok, you have to pump the heads and keep them drained, but this is a boat after all. The marina restroom and showers were very clean and convenient.

    You really can’t beat the location. Dante’s offers a great swimming pool, bar and restaurant; there is excellent coffee and breakfast at the Cuban Coffee Queen; terrific bread, cheese and cake at the Old Town Bakery (I highly recommend the chocolate ganache cake); and bike rentals from Eaton Street Bike Shop all within a few minute walk from the boat. Try the El Siboney restaurant for authentic and affordable Cuban food, the conch ceviche at the Turtle Kraals, fried fresh fish at the B.O. Fish Wagon, the great local crowd at the Schooner Wharf, and don’t forget the wild and crazy times on Duval Street a few blocks away. Everything you will want to see in Key West is a short walk or bike ride from the marina.

    All three of us give Key West Sailing Adventures (a.k.a. Boom Boom Charters) its captain(s) and crew, and the experience two thumbs up. Thank you for a great vacation. P.S. my daughter is hooked on snorkeling and loved the boat, the dolphins, sea turtles, rays, and plentiful fish. She says that Key West is the place to be and Wildthing is the place to stay. I think I see a future diver/marine biologist in the making.

    I surprised my husband with a family trip to Key West for a long weekend to celebrate his 40th birthday and I wanted everything to be special. We brought our 4 kids and my parents so we were a big group! We called Captain Albert to take us all out snorkeling (my husband's favorite ocean activity) and we had the most amazing time! He was so great with the kids, patiently answering their many questions and telling stories while steering us to great snorkeling and chatting with the adults as well. We have done a few charters over the years but nothing compares to Key West Sailing Adventures! Not even close! If you are in Key West and want a fantastic, professional and fun charter you could do no better than KWSA!
