This was by far the best snorkeling experience my wife and I have ever had. The trip started with Jeff and Trish providing a history of the reef and then showing us some pictures of the fish we were going to be seeing. Knowing what we were looking at added to the experience. Once we got to the reef (which... More

Thanks for the great review. We know it takes time and effort to write a great review, and we really appreciate it. It's the nicest thing you could do, and the perfect end to a perfect snorkel. More

Jeff and Trish are spectacular hosts. They have an incredible amount of knowledge about the area's ecological history and biological diversity - not to mention the sailboat provides a beautiful way to see the ocean in style. The trip was educational, fun, and relaxing. We had a group of 4 and went out with another group of 2 who were... More

We had the most awesome day with Jeff and Trish!!! During our pre-snorkel time they educated us on the reef and its occupants. But the adventure began with an adrenaline rush when we spotted a 10+Ft nurse shark. So exciting!! Jeff spotted an octopus that I would have never seen. We saw so many varieties of fish and coral. It... More

Thank you folks. We were so happy that you found us! It was our pleasure to share our passion for the coral discovery. The octopus was such a cool find. We have been doing charters here since 2009 and that was only the second octopus we have ever photographed. Both Trish and I are so lucky to have guests like... More

Regrettably, we thought we were going to have a small Eco trip. It was really a paddle in the mangroves. I hate to write a bad review but we spent way too much and not worth it at all. Sailing maybe but we wished we had skipped today

This is our second "Terrible" review since we first started using TripAdvisor in 2010 and it really hurts. We accept total responsibility for this bad review and have offered to refund the entire cost of the charter to this reviewer. We apologize to both of our guests and hope that someday we will get a second chance. This trip was... More

I had a lovely day out last weekend with Namaste Sailing. Trish and Jeff together with their puppy and cat took excellent care of the whole party- a couple, another lady and myself. They made everybody feel at home and safe both on board the ship and in the water. We where given lunch on the way out and Trish... More

Jeff and Trish ( along with a friendly pup and an incredibly chill cat) took my husband and I on a lovely snorkeling trip yesterday. We were treated to one of the reefs further out not frequently visited by the big tour "cattle" boats and consequently still abundant with fish and live coral. They will take up to 6 but... More

We really enjoyed the afternoon with Jeff and Trish, and their 2 other furry captains. The ocean was a bit rough, but we were glad to be able to make it the coral reef where we snorkeled and saw lots of very cool fish and plant life. Back on the boat, our daughter got a tad sea sick, but was... More

Thank you folks for your kind review. We were delighted that you all agreed to accompany us on what turned into a stellar day on the offshore reef. As I recall, we had two days of weather delays before the waves subsided enough to guarantee a safe and pleasant experience. We wish your schedule would have permitted one more day... More

Trying to avoid crowds during our FL Keys vacation, I searched the internet and found Namaste Sailing. Jeff and Trish are wonderful, nice people who made us feel like family. Their sail boat is small and well taken care of. They only take up to 6 people on a sunset cruise - so, no crowds, ever. Go to the front... More

We had a FANTASTIC Trip on the Namaste . Jeff and Trish gave us a great tour of some of the best waters in the Keys. One aspect that we truly loved is how they shared their knowledge of the various fish, coral, and other marine life. Trish even gave a personal touch by guiding my 11 year old son... More

Wow! Let me first say that seeing the expression on your son's face as he surfaced from his free dive with Trish was absolutely priceless. In that picture I saw my own face, though a much younger version, when I first touched the bottom on Alligator Reef over 40 years ago (I don't believe I was nearly as brave). Thank... More
