About Albert Tropea

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

Why Albert Tropea chose Key West

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.

What makes this yacht unique

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.

Best time ever in Key West after 40 years of visiting Key West

  • 5 of 5

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.

Just Book It! We Are Glad We Did!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Nice boat, great owner.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

"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!"

Located in a Historic Seaport, only three blocks stroll to downtown Key West is the Southernmost City located 90 miles from Cuba. Make sure that you are aware that the next island over has an annex with Key West and you have to drive 20 minutes to get to the actual Key West Island. Museums are a few blocks away. Stock Island has only a fish market and two restaurants be aware of locations of those imitators! We sail internationally too; 90 miles to Cuba, 120 miles from the Bahamas, 200 miles from Mexico. Live old style Key West three sailboats are docked in an alcove slip close to everything; music, shopping, restaurants, museums, nightly sunset/arts festival. You can walk to the famous Duval Street just three blocks from downtown. Look on Google Maps when you are choosing your charter; corrected location is 201 William Street, E Docks, Historic Seaport, Key West, FL 33040 select our historic seaport with marina right in the middle of all the fun, color and culture of the real Old Town Key West.

Know before you book with anyone if you are staying far away from the downtown Key West that you make sure and look at Google Maps, see if you are one the annexed 'stock island' a connecting bridge and more than 20 minutes from downtown Key West Proper. Get into the spirit of what locals' lifestyle is and rent a bike and peddle about to every museum and famous Key West attraction. Or you can walk to many sites when you stay on our E Docks right on the Gulf Of Mexico side. See our location on Google Maps at 201 William Street, E Docks 10-11-12, Historic Seaport, Key West, FL 33040. Every type of restaurant steps away any flavors any time of the day from hot breakfasts, great lunch spots and class act outdoor style dining at many dinner favorites. Car not necessary, bicycles all you need or quick taxi. Try our 'boatel' style in Key West at the dock or We will be glad to sail you to any nearby uninhabited islands or small countries nearby! Key West has the American-Caribbean flavor . Romantic, unique, Key West style; Great pool a short stroll away, buy lunch or drinks and swim free. Snorkel gear or fishing gear provided for your sunset or half day at sea. Ask out our Key West Sampler; 1st night at the docks, Stay 2nd night at sea; return 3rd night to relax at the docks. Plan your honeymoon and wedding with our boats. Custom packages available. Your dream wedding or restate your vows maybe bring the family or friends to pull up the sails, drive the boat with the captain at the helm to guide you. Fishing and snorkeling gear provided just pack light swim suits, shorts, t shirts and flip flops bring a light jacket for cool evenings this summer, as we are cooler than everyone else in the country with ocean breezes. Keep your baggage the soft backpack variety for easy storage on the boat and live like a local, the island life style. These are working boats, you will stay at the docks or at sea, and there are working engines with the heads and holding tanks similar to an RV but more fun and more action than a hotel or inn.

Ask us about day trips on our Anna Capri speed boat launching Spring - Summer 2014 to be included in your sailing stay or sailing excursion packages.

Other Activities: nearby and downtown shopping, all the major companies with other water activities all near the boats from kayaking, boating, parasailing, health/beauty spa all on the island easy to get to.

Golf: Key West Golf Club located on Stock Island. Call them for pricing.
