Sailing in Key West
One of the best things to do in Key West is the Sunset sail aboard the Spirit of Independence. Our sunset cruise is two hours that includes breathtaking views of Sunset Key, Mallory Square, the U.S. Customs house, and Fort Zachary Taylor state park. The sail includes Mimosa's, champagne, beer, wine, focaccia sandwiches, fresh fruit. The Spirit of Independence provides a memorable day of water activities that you'll never forget.
CRUISE Each cruise is different. It's the passengers that make the difference. Fun groups make fun trips.
SAIL Our course and sail trim should match the wind and weather that day. Key West has many sights to see by water. Some days we might sail the beaches off Key West or the northwest passage toward the Gulf of Mexico or Man O War harbor watching for dolphins.
SIGHTS TO SEE are so many: the Navy Base, Coast Guard Base, Customs House, Mallory Square, Sunset Key, and nearby islands.. You can also gain local knowledge about the coral reef, the Straights of Florida, Cottrells Key, and Boca Grande.
PRIVATE CHARTERS We love these. Make Spirit your private yacht for the day, for a special event, or a romantic cruise. Weddings aboard Spirit are truly memorable.
We are a small, family-owned and operated business, paying attention to detail and passenger satisfaction. Every passenger is very important to us.
Thanks for considering our schooner, Spirit of Independence.
