Stay and Play abroad the "Reef Dreamer" and join us on for a day at the reef!
About Jeffrey Bowman
My wife and I have owned and operated Namaste Eco Excursions since 2004. Our company features ecology inspired snorkel and kayak tours in the lower Florida Keys. Over the years we have had the pleasure to introduce our guests to the absolute wonder of a live tropical reef and wilderness mangrove forests. Often times our guests have expressed an interest in experiencing the laid back lifestyle of our unique marina for their own. Acknowledging this passion within we purchased the "Reef Keeper", a 32 foot Marine Trader trawler, and worked for nearly a year putting her in to service as a vacation rental. Since our launch date in September of 2016 we have received several bookings and to our delight our guests have absolutely loved their stay on the Reef Keeper.
Jeffrey Bowman purchased this Boat in 2015
Why Jeffrey Bowman chose Stock Island
The Reef Keeper is located at Discovery Cove in the newest and most modern marina in the Florida Keys. Stock Island Marina Village has adopted a very organic model for tourism. The marina features large common areas complete with an organic gardens, a Cuban cafe, a working waterfront purveyed by local artist studios, wood shops, and even a fully operational rum distillery with a rum tasting bar. Guests are welcome to stroll the well lit common docks, or perhaps book a day of ecological discovery aboard Reef Keeper"s sister ship, Reef Geek. For those wishing to explore Key West the marina offers a free shuttle service to the schooner docks in old Key West.
What makes this Boat unique
The very best view on the boat is the top deck. As owners, our favorite seat in the house is the top deck. This 360 degree view of the marina property is quite amazing. On any given day one may see a modern mega yacht moored up to a 75 year old Schooner. Sunsets are the very best. The winter sunsets are absolutely spectacular!

Great place to relax
This boat was a wonderful change from the normal hotel room. Boat was very clean and well kept, easy to get on and off to the floating dock and located in a very nice marina. Nothing better than sitting on the top deck in the evening with a drink and enjoying the view and the ocean breeze.
Thank you for the great review. We love it that you enjoyed the upper deck, the boat, and the good things about our location in the new marina. Please come back soon.
