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.

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.
