Living in the Keys for 15 years but visiting for an additional 30 years prior, I have seen many changes - many are not good. But I am still in awe of the beautiful and unbelieveable color of the waters here. Sailing you must be careful as many areas are very shallow, and our environment is very fragile. Please abide...

We had a very pleasant sail with Captain Dale on the Sirius Catamaran. He was very nice and informative. The weather was beautiful. We even saw dolphins.

We sailed on "Danger" with Danger Cruises. Excellent value with the wine and snacks provided to view the world famous sunset in Key west.

Took a week long sail and learn for the bareboat and coastal cruising certifications with my family. Bruce could not have been more instructive and attentive. I have two boys, 10 and 14, and he was very good with keeping them both learning and entertained with great stories on the trip. Sailing on your own is easiest when you have... More

We just finished a 3 day sailing course with Edgar. Bruce and his instructors and boats are awesome! They are very thorough, and we had more hands on experience than I ever imagined. We stayed on the boat and enjoyed great food nearby. If you are looking for a first class operation for learning to sail, you need to go... More

Don't bother looking any further, Florida Keys Sailing School, is the answer regardless what you are looking for. Captain Bruce offers education whatever your skill level, entertainment tailored to your preferences, local advise and tons of fun!!! We were looking for structure because we wanted to learn everything we possibly could in 7 days, but this was also our vacation... More
