Sailing with Tim and Jan on their 41.5 ft sailboat, Key Breeze, is simply a heavenly experience. The boat glides through the bay allowing the passengers to see a dolphin or two as it goes. Sailing in the bay is serene and gentle; great conversation, chocolates, and the fresh breeze--the experience brings joy to the soul! Would highly recommend this... More

Had some friends visiting from England and after planning a side trip to Sarasota, decided to go on a sailing excursion while there as well. We were a party of four, and there was an additional couple from Pennsylvania accompanying us as well. The Key Breeze, a 41 foot yacht ( a yacht since it is >40 feet) accommodates 6... More

I went on a 3 hour private sailing excursion with my 9 year old son. The passengers included myself, my son, the captain, and the captain's wife. The Captain and the captain's wife were very positive and friendly individuals. The captain took the time to explain the principals of sailing to my son, and let him navigate the boat under... More

My mother enjoyed living in Venice and loved walking the area beaches and her family wanted to recognize this by having her ashes spread in the Gulf. Jan and Tim were wonderful in the planning and implementation of that goal and helped make the day a happy celebration of her life. They went beyond what one might expect to make... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time with Jan and Tim today! They we informative, fun to talk to, and made us feel comfortable. We decided to take this sailing getaway because we are locals and love finding something different that a lot of locals don't take advantage of. Thank you both for making our five year anniversary special!... More

We had a wonderful trip with Jan and Tim. Our friend Gail from Turtle Beach Resort took us on the Sunset Sail. It was beautiful, they were very friendly, fed us lovely fruits, cheeses and a nice chocolate. The sunset itself could not have been better. Highly recommend this cruise is you are going to be in Sarasota, Florida.

The couple running Key Sailing were very friendly. The cruise never takes more than 6 people making for a relaxing experience. Since the owners take you on the sail there is no hustle for tips. The sail takes you far enough away from Sarasota to leave city noise behind!

This was the highlight of our vacation in Sarasota. Jan and Tim do a great job and are perfect hosts. The weather was warm and sunny and Jan gave flowers to our granddaughter for her 10th birthday. She and her brother both got turns at the wheel, which they really enjoyed. Not a cheap 3 hours but well worth it.

We took a morning trip out into Sarasota Bay with Jan and Tim. What a treat for our family, including two daughters, ages 13 and 11. A real vacation highlight! Their knowledge of Sarasota, the waterways and the history, was fascinating. We even took the boat under the Ringling bridge and saw a dolphin while we were out. A very... More

This was the finale to our quick trip to Siesta Key. Tim and Jan were fantastic and we enjoyed a relaxing time sharing stories on a perfect sailing day. Seeing Dolphins was the icing on the cake for us! We can't wait to come back and sail with them again!
