We thoroughly enjoyed our sail with Tim and Jan, owners of Key Sailing. They are the friendliest hosts and experienced sailors. Ours was a two hour mid-afternoon cruise, they also offer sunset, half and full day sailing.

Very relaxing time in a comfortable setting with complimentary fruit, cheese, chocolates and soft drinks/water. Also enjoyed the sights like the Ringling estate and learning more about the Sarasota area. My husband and I love sailing and considering possibly purchasing one. Capt Tim and... More

We sailed on the 41' yacht on Christmas Eve, on a perfect, sunny day and slight winds. I was a bit scared at first, that I would feel sea sick, however, much to my surprise, the sailing nearly put me to sleep. We had a private trip with total of 4, and the captain and his wife are so nice.... More

We sailed with Key Sailing in December and had an incredible time. The weather was perfect, views are stunning, but the real draw was the wonderful hosts. Captain Tim and Jan are genuine, warm and welcoming people who have a rich knowledge of sailing and the area. Will definitely be back!

We had a great time out on the Key Breeze! Tim and Jan were great with our three kids, letting them each steer the boat and answering their many questions. They are wonderful hosts, telling us about themselves with many local stories, and remembering our family from the last time several years ago that we went out on their boat.... More

This was a great sunset excursion from the marina across the bay and out Big Sarasota Pass for a sunset on the Gulf of Mexico. Tim and Jan were superb hosts. We took the trip with two close friends who were visiting us in Sarasota and they enjoyed it very much. We highly recommend this trip for couples.

Had a magical afternoon sail. Captain Tim and Jan made us feel special and treated us like we were the only couple aboard a private sail. Weather was perfect, Jan's knowledge of the area and history was great, gorgeous boat, and great times. It was the highlight of our trip. Thank you! Mary & John Michigan
