Our vessel is docked at 0 Margaret Street in the Historic Key West Seaport. Two nearby restaurants are The Half Shell Raw Bar and The Boathouse Restaurant. There is a city parking lot nearby on Caroline and Margaret with a pay station that takes credit cards. A parking garage is located at the corner of Grinnell and Caroline. Allow plenty of time for parking and please be to the boat 15 minutes prior to departure time to meet the Captain and crew, and to check in. Guests who arrive after boarding time will miss the trip.
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 into the 70's, and we provide blankets on board for your comfort. The Argo is 36' wide and is very stable and comfortable. You have the freedom to walk around and enjoy all the views from inside and out. It is a sailing vessel, so it is quiet and we enhance that tranquility by keeping the music turned off, allowing you an exquisite Key West sailing experience. Our guests are welcome to help raise the sails and take the Captain's helm to get a feel for the mariner's life. This is also a deluxe yacht with an air conditioned lounge, two spacious bathrooms for our guests with facilities you would see in your home, a fully stocked kitchen ('galley'), a large living room, and 3 staterooms, each with heads en suite. Overall we offer just over 2,800 square feet of floating space which feels luxurious but never pretentious.
All the sails cast off rain or shine unless the weather is unsafe. If the Captain decides to cancel, the crew will contact you at the number provided in your reservation to reschedule your trip, or offer you a refund. Reservations may be cancelled and you must call 305.509.1771 48 hours prior to your sailing date to receive a refund. After that time frame, we can place you on another sail. Guests who miss the boat will be rescheduled, if possible, however no refund will be given. Please note, no smoking onboard the vessel.
If you have any additional questions call us directly at 305.509.1771. We welcome our locals and we are friendly dog friendly on all of our sails. No smoking please.
We look forward to meeting and sailing with you.
