Historic Marina, historic homes, private homes mostly in the area that are protected and are wonderful to walk around and see. Sailboats abound of every kind and shape fill the Marina facing sunset. We are happy with the opening of the "Waterfront Brewery" a large capacity fun restaurant at the head of our dock. Museums, special attractions and stories, very artistic and eclectic small island community. Walk or bicycle maybe rent a scooter to get around to many things to see on the 2 by 4 mile island of Key West. Make sure that you know we are going to show up on Google Maps as on the actual island and CITY of Key West 201 William Street, Key West, FL 33040 note that Stock Island lower keys is NOT Key West it is partly annexed because it has no post office and uses the same zip code. Be aware of where your property is located. This is our fun economical boat great for two adults, or two adults with two small children or even possibly two couples for a downtown Key West easy access to everything and still quiet enough to be a convenient and fun location. You get the entire boat, we do not share or live on the boat nor do we use one of the cabins for storage. You are in charge! Tell us what you want to do on your 4 hour sail included with your charter. Either take the helm and pull sails with us or be laid back and have a brew or soda and just relax. Since 1995 making Key West memories with return guests Obsession is a reasonable rate for the location, the size and the sailing.
