Our summers in Key West are always cooler than all over the nation. Highest temperature could be 94 degrees with cooler ocean breezes at nights away from the harbor when sailing 24 hour excursions or day time sailing. When at anchor on our overnight excursions, air conditioning is not needed. We do have the option to take out the generators on excursions for your comfort for air conditioning or if you have any medical equipment, just ask. Always alert us as to any medical concern or we cannot be held libel please. There will be additional charges we may have to collect, if we are not prepared properly advised of your special needs. Let us know. Your information is never shared. Many people tell us we are their bucket list trip. We want to insure your trip is safe, fun and we are properly prepared for any personal needs.
Sub tropical and much milder summers with year around average temperatures closer to 82-86 degrees during the day with ocean breezes are cooler at night keep the overall experience even at the docks less muggy than in other resorts around the state of Florida or in the country in summer. All of our sailboats have air conditioning, water tanks, holding tanks and electricity on the sailboats at the docks for your comfort and convenience.
Many people travel with their personal laptops and always ask about equipment that they may use. Connections for your cell phones and laptops welcome. Best wi fi is nearby coffee shops. Our clients report that the access to the marina wi fi is very slow and drops the signal. If you have any questions- Just ask us- please let us know what your electric devices are as items such as hair dryers can interfere with boat function but may be used in the private marina based shower and laundry facility offered to guests of the sailboats. Most of the locals find it is easier to wash hair and a touch of hair gel and go the best way to style their hair with the relaxed lifestyle in Key West.
Pack light, two bathing suits, two shorts, flip flops, a couple of t-shirts, a pair of exercise long pants, light jacket and walking shoes all that is needed to enjoy a stay in the Key West downtown area and the historic marina where you are close to walking to museums, sunset celebration, all the famous sites are steps away.

Key West - the city and the island is only two by four miles wide. If this is where you want to stay, know that there are several islands that share the same zip code.
Make sure that if you are comparing our boats with other "cheaper" prices that add extra fees for cleaning and required sailing fee separate; we are including your charter in your rates. Just be sure that you do not end up on the next island over Stock Island/Lower Keys is a fishing and shrimping village, where you will be 20 minutes away and $30 dollar a day taxi ride to get to Key West and you may be next to a homeless shelter, jail, local dump or on the other side a fictitiously named marina, isolated from the real Key West, then you can expect to travel through some older undeveloped island communities without any attractions just a couple of restaurants, and NOT in the actual City of Key West or the island of Key West. Several islands in the Florida Keys share the same post office and you may think you are staying in Key West but may be underneath the navy jets. Check if a boat is less per night than our boats, if they add charges later; our fees include cleaning set up up and your sail time on a beautifully maintained sailboat. Check the condition of your vessel before boarding. We want to make sure you are happy.
We want you to be informed. Always ask. Take caution. Ask - "Where is your boat on Google Maps"? "How long have you been in business?" Ask "Do you have a licensed United States Coast Guard approved captain connected with your sailboat or vessel in the event of an emergency?" and "are professionals on call to make your stay comfortable in the event of weather event or any equipment or service failure"? If not, reconsider and book with us for your safety.
Since 1995 rest assured that our staff is dependable. Know before you go are you really in the City and the Island of Key West.
But if you do want to get away from it all just take our original 24 hour Key West Sailing Adventure excursion with all meals included. One, two or three nights, or as many nights at anchor and all day sailing as many days as you wish. Special pricing for several nights stay. Call for a custom special package. Our central location at the end of the chain of the Florida Keys makes it easy to make choices into the Gulf Of Mexico or the Atlantic as to the weather and tides or your whim.

Captain Albert Tropea, Jr
Once worked with Proctor and Gamble families and the Helene Curtis Company as personal sailing captain. While working in Key Largo with a maintenance company taking care of all hospitality related needs from the homes, to designing landscapes, maintaining yachts, Captain Albert realized that the missing component in vacations in the Florida Keys was the boatel or boat and breakfast style of adventure vacations. Captain Albert decided to bring the experiences he had with the very wealthy to the hard working families who longed for the sailing experience with their spouses, friends or families. Captain Albert has sailed all over the world from being a Everglades then Bahamas Guide,to sailing the Greek Islands and a number of foreign countries. Let Captain Albert or his hand picked captains and trained mates show you the wonders of what makes the area around the Florida Keys so unique. Our captains know many places that the big 40 plus person boats cannot get to and do not know about. Sail with a crew attending your needs, feel free to be involved with sailing or lifting the sails. It is the goal of the Company to have you experience direct contact with the wind, the sails and the sea with confidence if you one day want to buy your own boat. Feel like you own the boat by telling our crew what you wish to have for an experience whether it is more swim/snorkeling, fishing, sailing. You are the one in charge as if you own the sailboat.
Albert Tropea purchased this yacht in 1995
Key West boasts over three million visitors a year and for good reason. All year round the temperatures are milder than anywhere else even in the summer. Winter is non existent; come down and thaw out with us for your winter retreat. There are only a few days in January where the chill in the air will be down to a low of 45 for night time temperatures, high of 65 only a few days in January the rest of the year is spring like temperatures. Even the summers the highs are rarely above 92 degrees and nights and ocean breezes keep it mild at nights. 'Gonna go where the sun keeps shining, through the pouring rain' was a line from the song written about Key West! Bring your summer dream weddings and honeymoon plans to us and we help you design a special memory. Key Wes is second only to Las Vegas for easy relaxed weddings in a variety of settings especially on board your own sailing vessel, married next to a famous Key West Sunset. Since it takes from 17 to 25 years to get one of the coveted Key West Bight docks, we just recently added a third boat after waiting almost 20 years. It is well worth the wait, with a short three block stroll to Mallory Square nightly art festival and the famous bars and restaurants along the Duval Street district. There are museums and other attractions close by and the Ft. Meyers Ferry Boat is just a few yards from our E Dock behind the Wyland Murial at 201 William. The Historic Seaport has shopping along the board walk with many restaurants to choose from. Still funky and fun, Schooner Wharf Bar, Turtel Kraals and many old local's favorites still at historic seaport after many years with live music all the time. Restaurant near the Ferry boat has live music, outdoor dining and you are welcome to use the pool when you purchase your lunch or drinks with them like many pools in town. So much to do and see, park your car and bike or walk almost everywhere. Or take a taxi from the airport. Enjoy a simpler life Key West living.
Unique benefits to staying aboard a sailing vessel is to enjoy the life the way it once was in the historic seaport once known for fishing, conch farming and shrimp or lobster fishermen. Feel like you own the boat you stay aboard and then go sailing for your stay aboard and sail charter or choose to take off completely away from it all for as many days you wish to charter with meals and crew providing everything you need. It's your dream, why not live it out this time? You can stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast room anywhere any time; have it all old Key West style and feel like an explorer with family and friends or that significant other. Weather is usually mild no matter what time of the year. Sailing with our crew is safe, learn a few sailing tips, see wild life like dolphins, fish and sea turtles in their natural habitat. Relaxed style of vacationing, pack light, sandals, shorts and swim wear and a few t shirts; bring a light jacket and a pair of casual long pants for nights or when at sea. Bring a pair of good walking shoes, no need to bring heels as you will want to explore and walk as much as you feel comfortable to see the nuances of Key West. While at sea 24 hours, we provide meals and non alcohol drinks of course, with snorkel gear and fishing gear, no need to pack these items. When you take the helm once the captain gets you safely out of the harbor and sets a course, the feeling of adventure will sweep you away. Low tech environment, great for families to take a break from electronics even if for one day, there is so much to see at sea! Earn a 2 hour sunset sail for 2 nights stay at the docks for example. When you watch the sails unfurl, the feeling of exhilaration is exciting and deeply satisfying while living a lifestyle vacation for your special Key West vacation. The weather is usually ideal whether the weather is cold or hot where you are, it is perfect most days in Key West. Call and customize your special destination vacation.
Thank you for an excellent time Captain Albert!
We appreciated your giving us the option to add sailing to our 2 hr package. Brenda was a great first mate! See you again next time we are in Key West. Obsession sailboat was nice in the nautical red - white - blue you told us about. Yes - please - Have Brenda send us those pictures she took!
I am a vistor of the Keys for more than 40 years and staying with KW Sailing Adventure is the best. You get the best of everthing Key West and it´s surrounding seas have to offer. Old Town Key West, the Hemingway house, the Mel Fisher museum, the Aquarium, the arquitecture, the ambiance, Historical bars and eateries, great shopping and Maollory Docks with it´s sunset show. And this is just the beginning. You get to enjoy the real reason we come to the Keys, the ocean. You get to enjoy the true wonder of the keys on and below the sea, sleep under the stars, eat FRESH seafood with pampering second to none. I will not stay anywhere else.
My wife and I stayed on Wild Thing for three nights. It was fantastic. Air conditioning and master cabin bed made the stay very comfortable. The location could not be beat and the marina was very quiet and mostly very private. We loved every minute of it. Short walking distance to everything and anything you need. The day long sail was absolutely beautiful and the captain and first mate made sure we had a nice time. If you are thinking about this as an option to a hotel room or rental property, I highly suggest it.
We were booked on the Moondance for three nights and we planned to do an overnight sail. Unfortunately, weather and rough seas did not allow us to sail at all. Since we were on the boat for the 'at sea' experience, and that was not going to happen, we only stayed one night on the boat.
Albert, the owner of the boat was very understanding, and extremely gracious about us foregoing the two additional nights on the boat. All conversations and correspondence with Albert were timely and professional. It is obvious he loves what he does and cares about his guests having a top shelf experience.
The boat Moondance is quite nice, and well equipped. We were both disappointed we could not take her to sea since mother nature was not cooperative. We would recommend using any of Albert's 3 boats and will certainly contact him when we return to Key West.
"We enjoyed visiting Key West Sailing Adv and seeing Captain Albert and wife Ronda, also Captain Brian, first mates Dawn and Brenda. The sailboats are fresh with newly varnished floors and several upgrades since our last visit. You can tell the owners and crew take pride in these boats and sailing them. Being only three blocks from downtown Key West and in a Historic Seaport makes this for an authentic old style Key West experience. These are some of the reasons we can say we always like to come back and are coming back soon!"
Capt Albert we want to thank you and your crew for an awesome stay in KW. WE had 2 boats and had a great time aboard Moon Dance and Wild Thing. Your boats are great neet and clean love floor on Wild Thing and new interior on both boats.Great operation we will come back and sail with you guys again.Can't wait again thank you.
Albert thanks for everything you boats are a great way to enjoy KW.Congratulations for keeping boats nice and clean we like the new floors and upholstery also well see you next time for sure.
