About World Sailing Adventures
Join us aboard Makara, our 47-foot catamaran, to enjoy your private sailing charter for a few hours or join us under the stars for a multi-day, offshore adventure among the Florida Keys. Sail with us on the clear, blue waters off Key West to remote locations, along with some fishing, snorkeling the coral reefs, paddle boarding, and kayaking, while we offer up gourmet meals and specialty drinks. Take advantage of our new dive compressor and come scuba diving the wrecks and reefs of Key West, and all the way to the Dry Tortugas National Park. We offer an reasonably-priced, private charter for up to 6 people. It's a very different experience for you and your group compared to sharing your sunset sail with you 50 new "best friends" aboard one of the local "cattlemarans." We also offer the chance to combine staying aboard the boat while on the dock (and playing on Duval St!), with anything from a few hours of sailing to several days. Check out your options on our website!!

We had a 3 day all inclusive charter sailing May 13, 2021. The charter was canceled 48hrs prior to arrival via email. Needless to say it was very stressful since the charter was the first 3 nights of our 12 day trip and really caused us to jump through a lot of hoops for a lot more money!! Would not recommend this company to anyone! We have since received our refund thank goodness.

Booked with this company in February for a 3 night excursion. They sent an email at the end of April saying we were canceled due to “crew emergency”. The email didn’t have the right date on it so we tried to contact them to see if there was a mistake and we had no response. 2 days before we were to fly, literally, across the country, they finally emailed and said we were in fact canceled. It threw our vacation into a tailspin. We scrambled to find 3 nights accommodations in Key West and spent a gob of money at the only place we could find. They didn’t communicate with us, they didn’t bother to find us another charter, they cost us a lot of money and they tanked what was to be the highlight of our vacation. We did get our money back from the original booking, but it didn’t cover the extra expenses we accrued.

So I booked a trip online for May 22nd and then tried to call them to discuss the details. I called, messaged via the website, etc. without response. Then I came to trip advisor and noticed all of the sketchy recent reviews. After messaging and calling every outlet I could, I finally received an email response from someone stating that I wasn't even on their schedule (yet my card has a charge by their company for $1200) .... and that they are not able to accommodate a trip for May 22nd due to "maintenance" issues. I am furious as I am now trying to find something comparable to do on May 22nd and everything is booked. They should probably close their site until they're taking people. Terrible terrible terrible.

Wow! Where do I start??? We booked a 3 night charter on the Makara catamaran for our 22nd wedding anniversary April 29, 2021. Less than 72 hours before we were suppose to board for our journey to the Dry Tortugas I received an email stating there had been an emergency and that our trip was cancelled. I understand that things happen but I would have appreciated more than a random email. THEN...5 days later my credit card still had the $6000+ charge with no pending refund in sight per the credit card company. Finally had to file a charge dispute and THEY still have not contacted me even though I have left messages, emails and text. Needless to say I had to pay outrageous rates for other accommodations due to last minute booking. Thanks so much World Sailing Adventure. It has been an adventure but not a good one. Bad business!

We enjoyed an excellent trip with Ben & Carolina in late March for our spring break! They took us out to the Sambo Reefs where we snorkeled for a couple of hours. Next, we moved to a different area and fished for an hour or two. The snapper were practically jumping onto our hooks, and Ben was very helpful and patient with us. He cleaned and grilled the fish for our supper, while Carolina made everything else. We were definitely overfed on our first day! After talking over supper, the second day we were back at Sambo and Ben took my wife and me on Discovery Dives! We've snorkeled a fair amount in our lives and have used scuba equipment a little bit, but Ben was very careful with us, trained us well and then shepherded us along the reef for about forty five minutes each. We had an excellent time with Ben & Carolina and highly recommend them!
