Took a sunset cruise on the Schooner Hindu on our last night in Key West. Best decision of the trip! Great trip, interesting history from the captain, and great crew. Had drinks while sailing and got to see the sun set while the moon rose. Highly recommend. Thanks Captain Josh!

A visitor to Key West has many boat tour options. If going on a crowded boat, with a band, is your thing, go for it. But, if you do not want a floating version of Duval Street, the Hindu may be for you. This 88 year old wooden ship, painstakingly restored, gives the traveler a glimpse into the maritime past of Key West. 13 passengers were on board when I took the sunset cruise. A three member crew, led by Captain Josh. Or, 12 passengers and 4 crew, led by the owner, Bill. Josh’s Dad. The Hindu is a family enterprise. Which makes it a fun experience. Passengers can just sit back and enjoy the sail, salt water and scenery, or can participate. Hoisting the sails, or taking a turn at the wheel. All members of the crew are ready to answer any questions you have. And keep your wine glass full. Me, I had a couple of micro brews. Cheese, sausage and crackers were passed around like at a family gathering. In full disclosure, as a friend of the family, I did not pay for the sail. The cost is $85. Morning sails cost less. It is up to you to decide if it is worth it. If you have to buy a schooner, spend over a year getting it seaworthy, rearrange your life and schedule to accommodate your guests, $85 is a bargain.

The sunset as the Hindu sails over the early evening seas, is priceless.

The Hindu is an incredible story and restoration. The crew was young, friendly, informative and clearly enjoying themselves. It was a beautiful night and pretty sunset making this schooner cruise even better. All the beer, wine or soft drinks you want served with cheese, crackers, fruit and small bite appetizers. They had been sailing and smiling for only a month, but it was a flawless evening. We wish them good luck and recommend the Hindu as a great experience.

My husband and I just went on the most amazing Sunset Cruise in Key West on the Schooner Hindu. It had just been refurbished and it was a beautiful ship.The crew was amazing as well. Very professional but also sociable. As soon as the Hindu was away from the dock the crew began seeing to our every need. First drinks, then finger foods and then they finished with a little dessert. Everything was delicious. There was a slight wind blowing which made sailing incredible and when the sun set, it was beautiful. Many thanks to Jeff, the sales rep, for persuading us to go.
We loved it and we will definitely do it again!

Tgis is one fun cruise. Josh, Cheyenne are great captains. The food and beverages are top notch. Kayla was such a wonderful hostess. Rhe boat history is amazing.
I've done other sunset cruises, and this is the best.
