Sailing Key West

Sailing Key WestIf you need a break from some of Florida’s milder weather in the winter, why not finally take that sailing trip you’ve always wanted down to key West? The weather is nice, and since it’s so close you can take your time getting there, and enjoy the keys along the way!

In Key West we recommend going to A&B Marina, not only do they offer electrical services at every dock, but they can also accommodate ships up to 190 ft. in length but with a maximum beam of 24 ft. It’s located close to downtown, but make sure to book your slip in advance because spots fill up quickly. You’ll be close to the action, beaches, and other fun things that happen in the town!

Once you have your docking slip, it’s time to go down town! Make sure to check out the Cuban Coffee queen, stop and get an iced coffee. Trust us, it’s a local favorite and they use coffee ice cubes in your iced coffee!
