My husband Mike and I always take a sunset cruise when we visit Key West. This trip we sailed on the Floridays, a gorgeous ketch-rigged Irwin yacht. The two-woman crew — Captain Alexis and First Mate Shannon — was a delight: professional, friendly and very laid back.
Easily accessible, we boarded Floridays at the end of the dock at the Hyatt Resort Hotel in downtown Key West and were warmly welcomed aboard. Then we were off! The wind was strong all week and the night we sailed was no different. The ketch zipped along smoothly.
We shared our evening with the two other couples who had also booked the sunset sail. Truth to tell? It was like having the boat to ourselves: 60 foot yacht + 2 woman crew + 6 guests = 1 heavenly sail; we felt like we had chartered our own personal cruise! With wine (for me) and beer (for Mike) in hand, we sat back and enjoyed the motion of the ocean and the view of the horizon.
We would recommend both boat and crew highly. The yacht is recently refurbished and very beautiful. The crew is well trained, confident and capable...and also very beautiful.
