It's a sailboat! 26ft long with standing headroom. She has no running water and is powered by the sun and wind.
The space is cute, but definitely no frills. This will be just like camping.
There is a V berth that you will be sleeping in, with two fans to keep cool on those hot key west nights. A small dinette set up and bench next to the galley counter.
There is a small kitchen area with a butane burner stove. a small pot and pan are provided, as well as some utensils. The burner can easily be moved outside to cook under the stars.
There is not a traditional marine head, but a compost toilet. If the thought of this makes you uncomfortable or grossed out, this may not be the rental for you. It is very simple to use and smells like pine instead of sewage (marine head smell). Instructions will be provided.
You shower outside in the cockpit, again, if this makes you uncomfortable, maybe its not for you. It is a lot like camping and a lot of fun!
This is an accommodation rental, not a charter, so you can not sail or motor anywhere. You will have full use of the kayak with your deposit, as long as you keep it locked and respect it. (they are not cheap) , there will be no issues and you can get your deposit back.
I work and go to school, but I will make myself available as much as I can. That being said, you are pretty much on your own unless something major happens and you really need my help.
This is a boat AT ANCHOR so it moves with the tides and waves. It is in a protected bay but you will still feel movement. If you are very sensitive to movement or sea sickness maybe this is not for you.
When there is a lot of wind, kayaking can take a little longer and require more effort. You should be in reasonable shape and not have any injuries. You will get wet sitting in the kayak.
To get into and out of the boat also requires balance and hoisting yourself up, please be in reasonable shape. Please also understand that this lifestyle will aquire you some bumps and bruises. Can you dig it?
Do whatever you want, enjoy life on the ocean. Just don't break anything or steal my boat.
Only USB charging available. Laptops and such can be charged across the street at Starbucks or one of the hotel bars.
The compost head is only for number two. Pee off the side of the boat. Ladies too. Trust me, it's fun.
Close hatches when you leave for the day, as it will probably rain at some point.
Always double check that you have tied off the kayak to the boat and put the paddle inside before getting off. On land, double check the kayak and paddle are locked.
If you don't like camping you really won't like this.
If you like camping, you will love this.
Swim naked under the stars and enjoy cold beers in the sunshine. Gotta love that boat life!
I am never far so feel free to call or message me with any questions.
