Join us on this very special Brunch Sail aboard the Argo Navis. A private event benefiting the Samuel's House, a safe and sober residential resource and support services for homeless women and intact families. Your generous donation will be used to help fund their mission.
Guests are encouraged to dress for brunch in linen in tones of blues to match the azure waters off of Key West and let those 'loose ends' go in the breeze as we enjoy two hours on the sea.
This curated brunch event features:
Top 12 in the world rated Bloody Mary's from Paul @ The Saint Hotel Key West featuring homemade Bloody Mary mix made specially for the Argo. The Bloody is rimed with Key West Spice Company southern blend and garnished with an artfully crafted skewer of French toast sticks in real Vermont maple syrup, meatballs cooked in bacon jam, pepper jack cheese, Key West pink shrimp, pickled green beans from the Pickle Baron, bleu cheese olive, pimento olives and a stick of celery!

Our vessel is docked at the end of Margaret Street at the Historic Key West Seaport. There is a city parking lot a half block away in front of the Waterfront Brewery with a pay station that takes credit cards. Please be at the docks about 15 minutes prior to the departure time so we can get you checked in and take your temperature. Guests who arrive after boarding time will miss the boat. Please note all guests are required to wear a mask as they board and while moving around. Once you're settled with your group you're welcome to take it off and enjoy the fresh breezes.
Our motto is 'sail as you are' so feel free to dress up or dress down - just kick those heels off at the gangplank. You may want a sweater or light jacket when the temperatures dip down in the 70's but we always have blankets on board if you need one. Our catamaran is very stable and comfortable allowing you to walk around and enjoy all the views from inside and out. We are a sailing ship which affords the most quiet and tranquil way to experience a Key West sunset. Our guests are welcome to help raise the sails and even take a turn at the ship's wheel to get a little taste of the mariner's life. But we are also a deluxe yacht with an air conditioned lounge, two spacious bathrooms (called 'heads') for guests with normal house-style facilities, a fully stocked kitchen (galley), a large dining room with a table that seats 10 and 3 staterooms with ensuite bathrooms. Overall we offer just over 2,800 square feet of floating space which feels luxurious but never pretentious.
Our sunset sails last for approximately two hours during which time our crew will take the best care of you! Passed appetizers and charcuterie come around often and plentiful; your glass refilled frequently. You're welcome to taste any (or all) of our 12 fine wines and sparklings to find just the perfect one for your mood. And if beer is your preference enjoy 10 selections including some amazing Florida craft brews. Soda and flavored sparkling waters are also available. Your cruise will get you back to port in plenty of time for your dinner reservation but with our abundant offerings you may not be all that hungry!
All our sails are rain or shine unless the weather is unsafe. The Captain will make that call when appropriate and the crew will contact you at the number provided in your reservation to reschedule, at no additional charge, or offer a refund. Reservations must be cancelled by phone call 48 hours prior to sailing to receive a refund. Guests who miss the boat will be rescheduled, if possible, however no refund will be given. Please note, no smoking is permitted onboard the vessel.
If you have any additional questions please don't hesitate to call us directly at 305.509.1771. We are always local and friendly dog friendly on all of our sails.
We look forward to meeting and sailing with you.

Advanced Health and Safety Measures
At Hindu Charters we take the Covid 19 situation very seriously. Safety of our customers and crew is paramount. That's why we take the following precautions on every public sail:
- Our crew remains vigilant and is regularly screened. We wear masks during the entire cruise.
- All guests are screened. If you are exhibiting any symptoms or have been exposed, please reschedule your sunset or brunch sail without penalty.
- Our 2,800 square feet of floating space helps ensure you'll be able to socially distance. We are licensed to carry 90 passengers but for now are sailing with right around 30 (or less).
- Arriving guests will have their temperature taken before boarding.
- Please wear your mask until you are settled on the ship, with your party. When you are moving about the boat and/or cannot socially distance, please wear your mask.
All surfaces are thoroughly sanitized between cruises and during each sail. Crew wears gloves during all food prep and distribution.
- Crew will hand out passed appetizers so trays remain touch free. Crew will bring fresh glasses instead of refills.
- Hand sanitizer is available everywhere on the vessel. Guests and crew are encouraged to utilize it liberally.
Thank you for putting your trust in the SV Argo Navis. Together we can enjoy the beautiful Florida Keys waters and do our part to help stop the spread.
Please note: As of February 1, 2021, the President of the United States issued Executive Order (13998), promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel that requires masks be worn on all "public maritime vessels, including ferries" to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19. This order empowers the US Coast Guard as enforcement and subjects owners, operators and crew of vessels not in compliance to civil or criminal penalties from the CDC. The exception is when guests are actively eating and drinking.
