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!

We took a sunset cruise with 4 of our friends on a beautiful day in Sarasota. The reservation process was very easy and the website is very informative for Key Sailing. The 41Ft. sailboat was very comfortable. Owners Tim and Jan Solomon were very welcoming and told us all about their lives and their sailboat. Jan is just adorable! She... More

We booked the sunset cruise for a birthday surprise and we had a wonderful time. Our granddaughter loved sailing and a special thanks to Tim and Jan for making the cruise safe and fun for her. As for the adults, it was the most memorable birthday celebration ever. Jan and Captain Tim were exceptional. I am certain that was not... More

Captain Tim and his wife Jan made our sailing experience something I will treasure forever. They are remarkable people - and their passion for what they do shines for the whole time you are on their boat. They anticipated every need... it was a little chilly that morning, but they accommodated our schedule and took us on an early morning... More

Tim and Jan are pro sailors and pleasant hosts. Our afternoon sail was quiet and relaxing, enhanced by perfect weather and breezes. The boat is comfortable and clean. Soft drinks, bottled water and snacks are served. We were a group of six and we all enjoyed ourselves. We highly recommend Key Sailing and Tim and Jan.

My wife and I had the wonderful opportunity to spend an afternoon with Tim and Jan on their beautiful sailboat. It was absolutely the highlight of our week in Siesta Key. They are as gracious and accommodating as they could possibly be and they make sure that every need is met. The sailing was amazing, it was the first time... More

My husband, son and his wife along with our two young grandchildren had the greatest time sailing with Key Sailing! The couple that own and operate this trip are the people that took us out- it was nothing short of magnificent! The trip would be just perfect for a couple, a family with little ones or teens, or friends. Tim... More

Wow! I was surprised by my husband with a sailboat experience I never could have dreamed! Captain Tim and Jan made sure we had all our needs met with cheese and apples and beverages. Jan was sharing information about the Keys and taking pictures and video to ensure we captured this memory in more then our hearts. We enjoyed intimate... More

My wife and I enjoyed a nice sunset cruise with Jan and Tim for a 2nd honeymoon and our 10th anniversary. It was a simple, but memory filled cruise concluding with Tim, as a Capt and an ordained minister, helping us to renew our vows. They served a simple fruit and cheese plate and soft drinks, which was perfect for... More
