Key West Historic Seaport Excellent Location
We have never visited Key West before and stayed this trip with four people on the boat. The boat is as advertised in an amazing location with easy access to the harbor and Duvall Street. Check in was easy and Albert provided access to the public restroom that also had laundry machines.
Our 8 and 11 year old children loved the boat experience. The included sail was incredible with snorkeling. The captain and first mate did everything. Pack lightly and be prepared to have a lot of fun. There is a lot of adult and kid friendly things to do in key west from the boat. We would stay again.
Right in the heart of key west
We stayed on the sailboat and went out for about 4 hours The crew is great super friendly awesome experience. The location they talk about in the ad is very accurate it's located right there just a short short walk to everything.
Thanks Jeremy for the positive review! we hope you come back for a winter retreat or anytime when you would like to go sailing or even at sea excursion upgrade overnight. This helps our customers understand where we are and what we do. Captain Albert
Unique Key West experience
From the moment the stay request was accepted, the communication with owners was the best I’ve ever experienced.
They were kind enough to upgrade us also and the sailboats in their fleet are spacious and comfortable. The crew for the included sail was great also.
Location was superb. Pretty much everything is walking distance.
It is one of the great and fun things that make this company worth working for 24 years; the people you meet !
JUST LOVED staying on the sailboat. We had a couple issues early on (happens with any boat) But Albert was on top of it. He upgraded us to the 44ft "Wild Thing" and we sailed out to the reef, my hubby actually took the wheel! Saw massive amounts of fish during our snorkel. Shark,stingrays, puffer fish a large school of barracudas swam under us! LOTS of colorful fish swam all around us. Then Captain Ben sailed us to the perfect spot to watch the AMAZING SUNSET over the ocean. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND using Captian Albert! Having access to the piers private bath/shower/laundry is a BIG PLUS! Faleacia was FANTASTIC! She made everything perfect for our honeymoon. Ben's son came along on our sail. We were well pampered! Having a FULL MOON on our second night! EPIC and BEAUTIFUL! The rocking of the sailboat lulled us to sleep every night. You won't regret booking with Capt. Albert!
We stayed on board the Obsession for 6 nights! The owners, Albert and Rhonda, are super nice. Although the interior space was snug, the boat is cool and the location cannot be beat, right in the middle and within walking distance of anything you might want to see or do in Historic Key West. Other boat owners are friendly and you get to see and meet people from all over! We took an afternoon sail up the Atlantic coast then around the tip of Key West into the Gulf. The Captain and crew could not have been more friendly and helpful - for anyone who chooses to stay here I would say a sail is a must do.
Historic Marina, historic homes, private homes mostly in the area that are protected and are wonderful to walk around and see. Sailboats abound of every kind and shape fill the Marina facing sunset. We are happy with the opening of the "Waterfront Brewery" a large capacity fun restaurant at the head of our dock. Museums, special attractions and stories, very artistic and eclectic small island community. Walk or bicycle maybe rent a scooter to get around to many things to see on the 2 by 4 mile island of Key West. Make sure that you know we are going to show up on Google Maps as on the actual island and CITY of Key West 201 William Street, Key West, FL 33040 note that Stock Island lower keys is NOT Key West it is partly annexed because it has no post office and uses the same zip code. Be aware of where your property is located. This is our fun economical boat great for two adults, or two adults with two small children or even possibly two couples for a downtown Key West easy access to everything and still quiet enough to be a convenient and fun location. You get the entire boat, we do not share or live on the boat nor do we use one of the cabins for storage. You are in charge! Tell us what you want to do on your 4 hour sail included with your charter. Either take the helm and pull sails with us or be laid back and have a brew or soda and just relax. Since 1995 making Key West memories with return guests Obsession is a reasonable rate for the location, the size and the sailing.
