Ahoy Mates!

Welcome aboard !

The Boat Island Rose
The Island Rose is one of the best equipped sloops of her size cruising the Florida Keys. I take pride in the way she is outfitted. She has dockside A/C in all cabins and fans over every bunk. The entertainment center has a color TV, DVD, stereo with CD player and I-pod. I have a good selection of DVDs, books and games. I keep an ample supply of snorkeling gear and fishing tackle.

Of course, the boat has state of the art electronics like Global Positioning System, Chart plotter, autopilot, VHF radio, 2800 watt power inverter backed by 3 banks of batteries!

What’s more, my galley is a dream – I have an excellent refrigeration system with deep freeze and it’s also equipped with a microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, barbecue grill, etc. Fresh sheets and towels are well supplied.

The cockpit has a Bimini top and side curtains so you are comfortable in any weather.

The vessel is also equipped with a 12’ RIB inflatable tender with a 15 HP Mariner and with only a 4 1/2 draft.

Biscayne Bay is perfect for kayaking, snorkeling, bird watching and exploring wildlife, and gunk holing in the tender with lots of fishing. You can explore the deserted islands of Biscayne National Park or for livelier evenings there are dozens of waterfront cafes and tiki bars on the waterways. Most afternoons and evenings these cafes and tiki bars have a live band.

Just to the south of the bay is Key Largo & Pennycamp Park with some of the best reefs in North America!

With a combination of bay sailing, ocean sailing & snorkeling the calm waters of the Keys, this is the perfect vacation! And if you are a fishing enthusiast, just a few miles off shore are the deep blue waters of the Gulfstream that have given Islamorada the reputation of being the sport fishing capital of the world!

If you are looking to get more out of your trip, for a delivery fee you can always book a one way trip heading to or from any destination including Key Largo, Marathon and Key West!

We also can arrange limo service for drop off or pick up! Have Linda meet you at the airport and bring you to the marina of your choice anywhere in the Keys where cocktails and appetizers await your arrival! Why tumble around in a strange city when you can be welcomed at the airport and whisked away to the islands!

Island Adventures can create your dream vacation, be it a family outing, sailing with friends, the perfect date or even a romantic honeymoon! We do it all!

Day Sailing
Charter a yacht with 2 bathrooms, lots of shade, fishing and snorkeling gear and all the amenities of home on board a comfortable 41′ Morgan sailing yacht!

Why go out on crowded expensive boats when you can create your own dream day? Leaving from downtown Fort Lauderdale cruise past millionaires row on the intercoastal for a day’s sailing on the ocean. But you say you can’t afford to charter a 41′ yacht? No problem, if the boat and captain are available we offer trips starting at $100 per hour (2 hour min) for up to 6 passengers. That’s not per person but for the entire boat! If you have a group of 6 that works out to about $17 per hour per person! That is cheaper than renting jet skies or a flats boat!

But you say you want to go snorkeling or fishing?
No problem! Sailing vessel Island Rose is equipped with plenty of gear included in the price! We even have a commercial fishing license so you do not have to buy one! Soft drinks are included in the price and you can BYOB and bring your own snacks, or have the chef at the Briney Pub fix you up with a to go order.

Island Adventures is your headquarters for sailing charters to the Florida Keys.

We are now offering trips starting in Islamorada or Key Largo in the middle Keys! This eliminates the 2 day trip sailing to the best section of the Keys! This service starts in November of 2012.We normally depart from Fort Lauderdale but you now have the option of starting or ending your trip in Islamorada or Key Largo! You can make it a one way trip down or back or start and end your trip there! There is a $350 delivery charge each way. Transportation to the middle keys is available via limo or rental car service. This change offers you 4 more days on the reefs and hotspots the keys are famous for.

When you start your sailing trip out of Islamorada you have lots of choices as to where you want to go! Leaving out of Smugglers Cove located on Snake creek you can start your trip sailing into the Gulf of Mexico to explore the islands and wildlife of the Gulf of Mexico and Florida bay! There are loads of small restaurants and Tiki bars you can anchor off shore of for a little dancing and live music! Or you can start by Kayaking or exploring the nearby creeks in the inflatable and return to the boat for happy hour, dinner and watch the sunset sink into the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico.The Fun starts as soon as you board!

Ahhh, now we are getting down to the meat of it! What life on board a sailboat is all about. Again, it all comes down to crew since everyone has different expectations. Some people are happy simply to find a quiet harbor to fish, drink pina coladas and watch the sunsets.

Other people prefer to be active looking for new adventures each day.

A typical week goes something like this. I usually meet my clients aboard the boat and spend the first bit of time getting everyone settled in and familiar with the equipment.

Then we crack open a chilled bottle of champagne or preferred drinks to wash down a couple of pounds of shrimp or snacks and talk about what we want to do. (I have to get you on Island time!)

A lot of times our trip hinges on which way the wind is blowing. We will probably want to cast off and head to Miami for the night and go to Bayside, Coconut Grove or the infamous South Beach. Some people are happy to head out for a sunset sail and then return to dock and have dinner and explore the nightlife of Fort Lauderdale! These are all unique party places with numerous bars and nightclubs which I’m sure you’ve all heard about. Then we might want to get away from civilization and sail south to the Keys to explore islands and reefs. 

We normally plan our daily recreational activities over a large leisurely breakfast. We may decide to spend the morning sailing, kayaking or swimming or we may want to explore some deserted island and snorkel the nearby reefs. 

Fishing is a constant past time. When the wind is good, we lay on the beach and fly a kite.

In other words, you never know what pleasures each day will bring. 

Dinner is usually a long affair starting with cocktail hour and snacks while socializing with the people on the other boats. Then we settle down to a feast often caught fresh from the ocean – lobsters and fish are common when in season. 

After dinner – if we are anchored out – we have a bonfire on teh beach or laze away in a hammock to watch the stars. If we are in a marina, we visit people on other boats or go to the local island club for reggae and dancing.

Life on the Island Rose is camping out in an exotic milieu. Everybody gets involved in the daily fun and forever remember this trip for a long time.

If you want to learn to sail!
If you are wanting to combine your charter with a chance to learn more about sailing and boat handling, I can provide a custom charter for you focusing on teaching you.

Learn how to sail at your own Pace! I can offer basic sailing lessons to advanced sailing courses,providing a spectacular range of possibilities for sailors.
Sailing is many sports in one and can be pursued in as intense or casual a manner as you choose.

Captain Gerard has been a 100 ton Master since 1985 and has the experience to give you the necessary basic knowledge to enjoy sailing. If you are returning to the sport, we can refresh and reinforce dormant skills.

The mix of theory and practice concentrates on docking under power, basic navigation, engine checks and basic troubleshooting— areas that plague fledgling charterers. What to look for on taking command of a chartered boat, how to organize a crew, and some basic emergency steps to take when things don’t work out quite as planned are also touched upon.

Depending upon the level of instruction you want, he can teach you about sailing and the joys of cruising under sail. Depending on how much you want to learn, we can do week long trips or even weekend trips.

Rental Requirements

Additional days are prorated (cost of trip divided by 6).

The week trip prices cover provisions, boat, captain and all equipment. Taxes, dockage at other marinas and bar not included.

What is the max # of people allowed?

The boat has 2 private cabins. The V berth acts as a double, and the aft stateroom can be used as 2 singles or a double. The dining room table can also convert as a double, but not with a lot of privacy. This is the max number of passengers the coast guard permits.

Where do you sail out of and sail to?
The home port of the Island Rose is Ft. Lauderdale. Due to the extra time, expense and inconvenience clearing into and out of foreign countries, most trips are sailing the Florida Keys, John Pennycamp Park, Biscayne Bay and the Upper Keys. If you want the vessel delivered to any port, that can also be arranged.

What other costs are involved?
The base cost of the charter covers boat, captain and all equipment. The other expenses are food, fuel, dockage, customs fees and bar drinks.

a) Food: Can be provided for $25/day/person. (The captain does most of the cooking). Or we would be happy to help you shop.

b) Fuel: The motor uses 1 gallon of diesel per hour. Depending on the wind, fuel is $100 to $200 per week. Sometimes a lot less.

c) Dockage: Optional, but I find that most people like to dock a couple of times a week. Average fee is $50-75, but it can range from $25 to $200 depending on how fancy of a resort you want to stay at. The State park anchorages charge $15 to $20 per night but offer some amenities. The rest of the time we anchor out and that is free!

d) Bar: Send me a list, and I will buy it and stock it on board. Upon boarding, just reimburse me for the cost.

What do we need to bring?
Everything is casual. Most people spend their time in swimsuits, but it can get cool at night. Long pants, a sweater and a jacket are not out of line for the evenings, but mostly shorts and t-shirts are the norm. Water socks or shoes you can get wet are nice but no black soles that leave marks please. Soft sided suitcases are handy also.

Are children allowed?
I find that children adapt to boating faster than some adults. With younger children, I require that you purchase comfortable life jackets and that they wear them on deck. I do have several sizes on board, but I find if they are wearing them many hours a day, a perfect fit is best! Also when you tell them how handsome and sporting they look in them, they hardly want to take them off! Also, for safety, the captain’s word is law on board. (I don’t have kids but I have a dozen nephews and nieces. I am polite but firm). For the most part, kids have a great time with all the activities.

We want to learn sailing. Will you teach us?
I would be happy to. As an old sailor once told me, "You can learn to sail in a day, but you can spend your whole life learning the art of sailing." I can teach you as much as you want to learn.

What if we arrive and the weather is too rough to go out into the ocean?
The Keys are excellent sailing no matter how hard the wind blows. And there are always plenty of activities in the area to keep you busy. 

What is your smoking policy?
In consideration of the other passengers, most people prefer to smoke on deck downwind. 

Are credit cards accepted in most places?
Credit cards are accepted in most marinas and some stores but only in about half the places, as you would expect. Don’t be surprised if they place an additional 5% to 10% surcharge for their use.

What currency is used?
US dollars.

Can we board the boat the night before?
As long as I am not doing back-to-back charters, we can usually work this out. Depending on when you are arriving the fee will be simular to a hotel fee. I try to do everything I can to make your trip convenient and enjoyable.

What is your drug policy?
The same as the US Coast Guard’s. The policy is zero tolerance. I do not permit any activities (including poaching). This can result in the impounding of my vessel!
