“Sunset Sail & Snorkel”

Blue Ice Sailing Charters
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The BLUE ICE is a beautiful 47' Jeanneau Sailing yacht. She has been based out of Key West doing luxury Day sailing trips since 1998. We offer many options when choosing a key west sailing adventure. On our half day trip we have plenty of time to sail to the reef, do some snorkeling at our beautiful barrier reef, and enjoy some wonderful complimentary drinks and snacks. Our private sunset sails are also a very popular romantic choice. For extra fun, a full day is the one. All charters include complimentary beer, wine, champagne and assorted soft drinks. The captain and first mate will ensure your every need is taken care of. Make sure you do not miss what many call "The BEST part of our trip to Key West!"

“Sunset Sail & Snorkel”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We chartered the Blue Ice for a 4 hour Sunset Sail & Snorkel in June 2013. Our party was 4 adults (2 couples). It was a great experience from start to finish. John and Ron were our captain and crew and they worked seamlessly together to make our afternoon relaxing and enjoyable.

We left Key West harbor, hoisted the sails and steered a straight course for Sand Key. The weather was absolutely perfect. They tied up to a mooring ball at Sand Key and we bailed off the swim platform and snorkeled the warm clear waters for about an hour. Nice Spur and Groove reef formation with plenty of sea life.

We re-boarded the boat, rinsed off with freshwater shower on the stern and were welcomed with snacks of cheese, fruit, champagne and beer. All good!

We then turned loose from the mooring and set sail back to Key West for a great sunset.

We fish a lot and Ron emerged from the cabin with a spinning rod and a black/purple Stubby Bubbler. My wife caught a nice Spanish Mackerel on the ride back in. We released it to swim another day. Icing on the cake!

The crew timed the sunset just perfectly so we had unobstructed views as we re-entered Key West.

All in all this was a great way to spend the late afternoon/evening.

“Excellent, All The Way Around”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Really impressive crew. Great rate. Highly recommended for those of you looking for a GLBT friendly boat, but don't want to sail with the 'clothing optional' set. The ship is in tip top shape and once you charter, you really never want to go back to the guys that pack folks in like sardines.

Well done Blue Ice: We'll be back, again and again.

“The perfect sunset experience!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

What a night! Perfection! After years of visiting Key West and watching the sailboats taking tourists out for loud, crowded sunset cruises, we found the answer...Blu Ice! A beautiful 47-foot sailboat, only our group of four and Captain Bruce with first mate, Ron made our sunset sail one to remember. We were welcomed like old friends. It was a great experience we look forward to repeating.

“Sunset wedding aboard Blue Ice”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

Captain Bruce and Ron ensured our wedding was perfect. The vessel was very nice, drinks provided and Bruce ensured we were in perfect position for photos. The ceremony was great and ended right at sunset. Far exceeding our expectations. We plan to sail with Captain Bruce for our first anniversary. Thank you Bruce and Ron.
