About
Nothing compares to a day spent on the sea -- the smell of salt water, the serenity of the ocean, and the rush of wind on a breezy day. When you board Poet's Lounge, you'll get to experience that unique wonder for yourself. Poet's Lounge is a magnificent 40-foot former racing boat. She's piloted by Captain Darin Keech, a captain for 20 years and a sailor all his life. Enjoy a day sail or a sunset cruise surrounded by good company and the beauty of Fisher's Island Sound. When you step onto land once more, we know you'll feel as we do: eager to return to the water again for another adventure.

Captain Darin was a great host for a sunset cruise. We went on a near perfect evening and enjoyed a totally relaxed sail around the waters and islands near Mystic. The boat is a perfect size for 4-6 passengers.

There is really nothing like a day on the water! And Captain Darin makes it perfect.
Safe, experienced, knowledgeable and friendly. Throw in some Beatles on the sound system and some live guitar by Darin, and what could be better?
We have sailed with Darin off Noank and Fisher's Island in CT, as well as off Coral Bay, St. John, USVI. Each and every time we are thoroughly delighted.

From booking to boarding working with Darin and Dawn was a breeze. Darin kept in touch with "ify" weather projected and when it cleared up we were a go. Sailing the bay and island was fun and captain Darin had the timing down for our sail into the sunset.

Had a great time! We were in CT visiting our daughter. She and her friends joined us on a sunset sail for a perfect afternoon/ evening. The six of us enjoyed every minute...even Mom falling into the dingy. Lots of laughs. Great way to spend an afternoon. Darin was a wonderful host. The swim at Fishers Island was a great way to cool off. We packed a picnic (Mystic Market) and a cooler full of beers, water and such. We did bring way too much ....but we had a great time! Highly recommend!

What an unforgettable experience! Our crew loved our time on the water with Darin. He was an excellent host, wonderful to chat with and very attentive when he realized one of us was feeling seasick. Two of us had been out with him before for a sunset cruise and we upped it to 3 hrs this time. Truly a great experience - highly recommend and will definitely be back!

We had the best time on our sailing charter with Tina and Dan! They are excellent captains and made us feel so welcome. Dawn and Darin made the scheduling and payment process super easy and were very accommodating as well. Can't wait to sail with the Poets Lounge group again!

From the first phone call to our charter, Darin & Dawn were such welcoming, professional people. Our sail was so relaxing, and Darin had such interesting things to say about our route and the area. If you are thinking of booking with Poet's Lounge, do yourself a favor and just DO IT!

Have sailed with Darren, in CT and in St John. He is an exceptional Captain and a talented musician so provides a wonderful day out on the water. I highly recommend Darren to provide you with a wonderful experience on the water.

We had a great day! Can’t wait to go back next summer. Darrin is great! He Supplied water floats and noodles for the kids to use to swim and speakers for music. We did a three hour cruise; next time at least four hours.
Bring some towels.

As part of a weekend celebration for my husband's birthday, with the help of the Inn at Stonington, I was able to charter the Poet's Lounge for a beautiful afternoon sail. Captain Darin Keech helped to create a wonderful memory for my husband and two of our friends. We spent a perfect afternoon cruising the waters off of Noank and around Fisher's Island. Captain Keech pointed out unusual land formations, lighthouses and even spotted some seals for us. He is a very knowledgable and experienced Captain. The boat is older but lovely and has character. Perfect for up to 6 people. Next time, and there will be a next time, we will bring a bottle of wine. Can't wait to hop aboard again! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon, Captain Keech.
