A fun Key West home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on "Lion's Paw" The boat is in a very nice marina, providing pleasant, peaceful nights with sleep enhancing water sounds. The boat is pretty and clean, with a well appointed galley. Captain Janet was very welcoming and always responded quickly to our queries. Captain Nancy was on site and kept us well informed and was a fun and gracious host as well. Our day sail was most enjoyable, with a perfect breeze and professional yet FUN companionship provided by Captains Nancy and Pam. A nice light lunch was also provided.

Our stay in Key West felt like more of an adventure staying on "Lion's Paw"!

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This boat was wonderful. It had everything we needed to feel at home. A family of 6 stayed comfortably, loved the cooler that we could take to the beach! Every night we sat and watched the fish in the marina, truly special experience.

Something different!

  • 4 of 5

My wife & I were very glad we chose to try a boat over the conventional condo stay in Key West. Just the idea of living on the boat for a few days added a great sense of fun and adventure as neither of us have ever owned one. The marina was also very nice--cute private beach and pool and a nice restaurant on the premises. The Tiki Hut was being repaired during our stay but it also looked promising. We both liked that the showers and bathrooms were very close to the boats and the option to use the indoor marina facilities was also available. As nice as the marina was, the immediate surrounding region (to our surprise) was a little rough--lots of beat up trailer homes, etc. But it was no reason for alarm as the marina is private and secure. We also grabbed dinner at a local hotspot called Hogfish Bar & Grill which was nestled on the water down a backstreet--not easy to find-but we enjoyed dining with the locals there and the food and entertainment were great. The boat itself was very clean and had everything we needed. It was charming and intimate just what we wanted. The only disappointment was the fact that we pre-paid for a snorkel/sail which was something my wife was really looking forward to but early into our sail our captain Nancy advised us that because of the heavy surf we would not be able to snorkel. That was disappointing news to hear. We would have liked to have had a conversation before leaving the dock about the possibility of no snorkel due to the weather. If we knew in advance that snorkeling was unlikely we may have canceled the sail--not that the sail was bad--it was actually beautiful--but we are both Floridians and have experienced boats and beautiful seas before. We took on the expense of the excursion mainly for the snorkel not the sailing. Either way, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend an overnight boat experience in Key West to others.

Owner's Response: We look forward to seeing you and your family next year. We have always believed that our little company shines the most when customers chose our 24- hour Island Adventure...letting us pamper you with all the cooking (and clean up) and hopping into the dinghy to explore the island and go dolphin hunting. Please come back next year. Captains Janet and Nancy
