“Snorkel & Sunset Cruise Best Ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

My wife, myself and a friend chartered a 4-hour snorkel and sunset cruise aboard the 'Namaste' with Jeffrey, Trisha and Capt. Ron. From the time we boarded until we docked after sunset the cruise was the most professional, relaxing and enjoyable of any similar activity we have ever experienced. Making way to 'The Gardens' to snorkel, Trisha familiarized us with an introduction to the various sealife would could expect to see. Jeffrey masterfully piloted the Namaste while Capt Ron (their cat) roamed about ensuring all was in order. After an eventful snorkelling dive in which Trisha brought up many various sealife for us to hold and examine, Jeffrey gently cruised us back south of Sunset Key for a wonderful, 'private' view of the sunset. Trisha, thank you for the crackers and cheese after the dive - it was delicious! Spending the afternoon snorkelling and viewing the sunset aboard the Namaste while enjoying lively discussions with Jeffrey and Trish was without doubt the highlight of our 5 day stay in Key West. We come to Key West every May, and this year's trip and the sunset excursion aboard the Namaste was the perfect finishing touch to our stay. THANK YOU Namaste, Jeffrey, Trisha and Capt Ron for making this trip very special!!! I would HIGHLY recommend taking the snorkel/sunset cruise aboard the Namaste. The vessel is beautiful and Jeffrey and Trisha are wonderful hosts! We'll see you next year!

“Amazing trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

What a perfect combination of snorkeling, eco-education, sailing and conversations! Jeff, Trish and Captain Ron made us feel at ease on the Namaste and I would highly recommend that if you are looking for an amazing sailing experience, go on the Namaste! Jeff and Trish took us to the most serene snorkeling spot where we saw tons of fish, coral and sponges. Sailing at sunset was the perfect ending to a great day out on the sea. I would definitely sail with them again.

“Best sailing tour, educational, welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

We had an educational ride out for snorkling where the hosts showed us what kinds of things we might see. They watched over us and showed us things on the reef. Great time, will come back again.

“Superb Personalized Sailing Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

Trish, Jeff and Captain Ron provided us with the perfect combination of sailing, snorkeling, fun, food and friendship. They immediately made us feel at home on the Namaste and were great about providing us with options on what we might do each day based on weather and our preferences. Our particular priority was to do some sailing – which we did! We very much enjoyed learning about the Namaste and working with Trish and Jeff to get her going in varying conditions. We also learned so much about the cruising life and various boat maintenance issues we are trying to tackle in the chilly northeast. Their knowledge and experience run deep and we so appreciate all that they shared with us. We also got an education about the various reefs in the area and took the opportunity to explore. Without Trish’s valuable pre-snorkel explanation of what we might see we probably would have missed a lot. Anything we did miss didn’t get by Trish and her phenomenal aquatic photography skills. We very much appreciate the efforts that were made to personalize our liveaboard experience and we look forward to doing it again soon! -Bonnie & Craig

“Absolutely Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

If you are looking for a great sailing experience in Key West, with really nice, knowledgable people, these is the one to go with. My son and I took a sunset cruise wiht Trish and Jeff and it was really a great experience. The boat is terrific and they really make you feel at home. We have chartered a variety of sailboats and this was the best experience of them all. We highly reccomend them.
