Key West Snorkeling Tip #1: Read the Captains Blog for Namaste Sailing :>
What a great day for some beautiful Key West Snorkeling! Took our good friends Julie, Joe, Patrick, and Joe out to Sand Key. Sat out a squall and them watched as Joe and Trish swam like reef squids for about two hours. Finished off the day with a wreck snorkel and some tasty birthday cake ( Joe’s 39th ish) A wonderful day on the water with great friends.

Looks to be another wonderful day for a Key West snorkeling adventure with Namaste Sailing. Wind is blowing 15 to 20 out of the east so it looks like we will heading to our favorite near shore snorkel with good vis and calm seas. Can’t wait to get Trish back in the water with the reef cam; that girl’s got talent! Check out yesterday’s picture of the day. Way to go Trishi
We’re having an amazing time with our new friends Tod, George (adult leaders), Maverick, Michael, and Matthew. Yesterday we sailed to Looe Key on a northwest wind and snorkeled for about an hour there. Looe Key is a bit off the beaten track for Key West snorkeling but it is well worth the extra time. We saw so many beautiful fish! We started our contest with the “geek cam” an underwater camera that is integrated into a snorkel mask. Maverick won the right to be first. He had a really cool shot of a shark. It’ll be hard to beat. Way to go! Talk about boyscout high adventure
We rafted up with the Rosa del Mar, Captain Russ’s boat that held the rest of the troop and had a fabulous dinner of tacos. These guys can really cook.
Looe key was so beautiful that we had to go back for more this morning. It was Matthew’s turn at the geek cam. We haven’t seen his pictures yet, but he was getting way down and taking some interesting shots, so he’ll surely be a contender for the prize.
Next, we sailed over to Munson Rocks, another cool reef. Michael was the photographer here. I can’t wait to see his photos.
The guys all have shipboard jobs. Maverick is our quarter master, the guy in charge of food. He’s been doing a great job. We’re all eating good. Michael is in charge of anchoring and mooring. That’s a really important job, and he’s very good at it. We sleep like babies knowing that Michael has secured everything well.
Matthew is our helmsman. He shares the job of driving the boat with Captain Jeff. At times it’s an exhausting job. We’re currently under way back to the Key West neighborhood. We plan to spend the day tomorrow snorkeling all day, and there are some great spots close by. We want to make an early start and see as much as possible. I’ll keep you posted on our progress and the geek cam competition.
