We have had 26 and counting marriage proposals, vow renewals, small weddings, birthdays and countless anniversaries. What To Expect Onboard: High Tide is Key West’s first charter sailboat, sailing out of Key West Harbor since the ’80s and still enjoyed with us. Designed specifically for snorkel trips to the Florida Reef and day sailing Key West water, she is a 33′ 1980 Glander built here in the Florida Keys by the Conch Republic’s First Sea Lord, Admiral Finbar. Hight Tide’s spacious double cockpit, simple sloop rig and shallow draft provides a breathtaking backdrop for intimate weddings, family gatherings and other special events at Sea. The 33′ custom sloop is the ideal platform to explore and learn about Key West’s “back country” flats and mangrove island bird sanctuaries.

Our goal is to offer a true sailing experience for locals and visitors alike aboard unique classic vessels. From inspiring newcomers and first-timers, to helping our community sailors hone their skills while serving as captain and crew, We are about sharing the love of sailing. Our captain discovered his love for sailing after going out on a Key West sunset sail at the age of 13. Upon disembarking he turned to his father and said "That's what I want to do with my life" He was referring to sailing, and he has lived true to that statement ever since. He started then as a volunteer on traditional schooners from Key West to Maine, and through hard work and dedication, driven by sheer passion for the sea he climbed his way up the ladder to make himself one of the youngest schooner Captains on the East Coast. He has sailed and commanded some of the oldest and most renowned classic schooners on the water including General Patton’s When and If, the flawlessly restored Fife schooner Adventuress and John Alden’s magnum opus, the Bermuda Race winner Malabar X. Bringing his experience back to Key West, with the help of friends and loved ones he founded the company with the desire to provide a fun, compelling, customer orientated sailing charter company.
