Review of Kiskeedee Sailing Charters

Kiskeedee Sailing Charters

Attraction details
Owner description: Spend a beautiful carefree day sailing on Kiskeedee, a 44-foot sailing yacht...with a French touch. All sailing charters are private, just for you and your party. What a fantastic way to see Miami from the water and enjoy all that Biscayne Bay has to offer. You can sail, see the sights, swim, snorkel, kayak, wade on a sandbar and enjoy some great food (a la Francaise). Kiskeedee Sailing Charters also offers week-long sailing trips during the spring and summmer in the gorgeous Abaco islands in the Bahamas.

“a dream-like voyage in Biscayne Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We spent a beautiful afternoon on the Kiskeedee with Ellen and Jean Claude. A group of friends made up the party; we boarded at Coconut Grove and motored across the calms to Key Biscayne and had lunch on the boat and then gradually sailed our way back . The whole trip was dream like and fantastic. At the end we had happy hour on the boat in the midst of sailboats moored at Coconut Grove. I was very happy with the whole experience. We are all hoping for longer adventures with the Kiskeedee soon!

“Terrific adventure and lasting memories.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Our Boy Scout troop spent a week with Jean-Claude and Ellen sailing in the Abacos islands. It was a wonderful experience for boys and dads. The crew welcomed us aboard the Kiskeedee and spent a week showing us the beautiful waters, reefs and sunsets. We enjoyed the sailing, snokeling and sight seeing on the islands. We shared stories and were welcomed like family by Jean-Claude and Ellen. It was an awesome trip.

“Outstanding knowledge of the area coupled with wonderful hospitality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Our group of Boy Scouts had that once in a lifetime trip aboard the Kisskedee. The Abacos area is such a wonderful place and the crew's knowledge of the area was very extensive which allowed us to maximize the experience. The owners have spent most of their lives living on boats and sailing the world and they graciously shared their knowledge and wonderful stories with us. I write this review nearly 6 months after our trip yet it seems like last week. Thankfully these fond memories will be everlasting for all of us.

“Sailing your stress away....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

My friends and I spent a lovely Sunday sailing on the Kiskeedee this Spring Break. The hosts are a charming couple that immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable. We sailed out to the Bay and stopped to munch on some homemade delicacies and some of us went for a swim. We chose a return trip through the Miami river. I've lived in Miami for over 30 years and had never seen this view of the city. It was like floating by a moving tapestry of our unique melting pot - a very interesting perspective. The couple who own and sail the Kiskeedee are very experienced and skilled, having sailed and lived across the globe, so we immediately felt we were in good hands. Overall, the day was both relaxing and entertaining. The hosts knew just when to give each guest the time to just relax or snooze on deck....or join in some lively conversation about their many interesting worldly experiences. Thumbs up for Kiskeedee!

“Charming hosts & experienced captain !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

We had a wonderful sailing day on Biscayne Bay in Miami last February. Jean-Claude and Ellen are charming and pleasant hosts. They both have a lot of experience navigating through the world. We felt secure and at ease on their beautiful sailing boat. We had chosen to meet them around 10h30 in the morning on their Miami River docking with a return at Coconut Grove late afternoon. This included a delicious home-made ''French style'' lunch with a good bottle of wine. Everything was perfect and we highly recommend them if you want a relaxed day on the Bay ! Thanks again Ellen and Jean-Claude.
