I have a Master 100T Captain's License. Having a locals knowledge really enhances your experience in the Keys. I'll be glad to offer any information you would like.

Awesome adventure

  • 5 of 5

We went on a 4 day sail to dry tortugas and had an awesome time. Capt bob was great from start to finish, we all enjoyed spending time talking with him during out trip. We had two couples and our 13 year old daughter and there was plenty of room on the well equipped boat. I highly recommend the dry tortugas if your looking for a 4 day adventure. I can't wait for our group to go back and sail with bob.

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week on Sunluver with my family of 5 and enjoyed every minute of it! We went on 4 excursions including a sunset/4th of July firework cruise and a 50 mile roundtrip cruise to an awesome snorkeling reef. Captain Bob positioned the boat for the best viewing of the fireworks and sailed adeptly back to the marina after dark. We went on 3 snorkel/sail trips and saw dolphins, turtles, a hammerhead, swam with many tropical fishes and stingrays, spotted a few sharks, and got up close to a small school of goliath grouper (250+ pounds). I was a little worried about the heat & humidity once docked back at the marina, but the a/c cooled things down quickly and we slept comfortably at night. Sunluvers twin hauls make for a smooth ride. Captain Bob is the perfect host. He is professional, patient, and has a calm disposition, yet he's "on it"! We look forward to our next trip with Captain Bob!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life! From morning to night, new adventures. We seen sea turtles, dolphins and sting rays. Beautiful sunsets like no where else. To have the warm breeze flow through your hair and see the beautiful blue ocean while sailing is an awesome feeling. Eating, sleeping and sailing on this boat, you couldn't ask for more! Captain Bob and his Sunluver are great! We can't wait to take another trip!!

My fiancée and I were married in Key West on 11/11 and stayed on Sunluver for three nights with our five adult children, and our English Bulldog. This was certainly a wonderful vacation and experience we will never forget! The Sunluver is comfortable, well equipped, and the Marina is top notch. Captain Bob took us out for a day cruise that included snorkeling, watching power boat races, and just plain relaxing. The cruise ended with a spectacular Key West sunset. Capt. Bob made us all feel like we were out yachting for the day with one of our good friends. He probably got tired of all my questions but answered every one of them. I live in Miami and will definitely be making a return visit to the Sunluver.

Awesome Key West Adventure!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on the Sunluver for 3 days during a recent hurricane turned tropical storm at the end of August. Everyone thought we were crazy but Captain Bob was confident that things would turn out well and they sure did. We had an amazing time and staying in a hotel in the future will be extremely lackluster compared to staying on the spacious and well-stocked Sunluver Catamaran. The weather turned out to be amazing and Captain Bob kept us updated on the changing weather at all times. Our dream is to own a catamaran and this was just more validation that this is where we want to be. We brought our 1-year old daughter and she loved it just as well. We did the 7-hour charter and had a great time and will always remember our "3-hour tour." Cooking on the boat is like being in your own kitchen and the amenities were more than plenty. I dove and did some snorkeling and succeeded in not thinking about work the whole time we were on the boat. We even had stormy weather come through and while docked, the Sunluver never moved an inch. Great marina, great boat, and a great Captain made for an unforgettable experience. Captain Bob was very responsive and we never had any delays if we needed to get a hold of him. He was also extremely knowledgeable about the area and the boat, which is always comforting. We highly recommend Captain Bob and the Sunluver for a nice getaway not just from the house, but from the daily grind.

Owner's Response: I felt very honored to have you aboard Sunluver for your stay. It all started with a dream I had 25 years ago of owning a Catamaran. I wish you all the best in making your Dream come true. You and your family will never regret your Dream coming true. Keep in touch and if there is anything I can do to help you find your Catamaran, please don't hesitate to ask. May your sails be full.......

We could not have been happier with our Key West "chase winter away" vacation.....romantic, exciting, perfect in all not hesitate to book your vacation here...just leave us a few days for a return visit! Caption Bob has many suggestions on local history restaurants, and can make you feel part of the Keys. We enjoyed our experiences and being part of the local music scene.
