Stay and Play
Key West accommodations is not a matter of the best 4 star hotel. One should look to an authentic experience verses the predicable. Key West is all about taking a chance, exploring all possibilities, and trusting your instincts. Namaste’ Eco Excursions now offers overnight accommodations aboard our amazing 34 foot trawler, Reef Keeper. The Reef Keeper is a nicely appointed pocket trawler set up to provide up to four guests with all the modern conveniences of a waterfront condo as well as the functionality of a traditional oceangoing yacht. You’ll enjoy two private nights aboard this comfortable little yacht as well as an amazing eco excursion with captain and fully credentialed Florida Naturalist.
Our Stay and Play package includes two nights on the Sherpa moored at the brand new Stock Island Marina Village. You’ll enjoy strolling the tropical setting, maybe stopping for a bite at our on-site restaurant or listen to live music and have a drink at the charming tiki bar. Your stroll can take you through the organic community gardens, or you might just decide to pause on a park bench to enjoy the wonderful waterfront views. When you’re ready to explore Key West, the complementary shuttle offers drop off and pick up locations in downtown Key West as well as local grocery stores.
Aboard the Reef Keeper you will find a fully equipped galley with everything you need to prepare food for the family, a large salon with a dinette, ample seating for four adults to enjoy the beautiful views, an extra long sofa bed, a large forward cabin with king size bed and, of course, a full bathroom with shower, and everything you need for a perfect stay. You’ll enjoy the 360 degree views from the large, shady deck as you sip your favorite tropical beverage.
One Stop Eco Excursion (Included with all overnight stays)
Our Morning Excursion is a perfect play day for anyone with a passion for a wilderness experience who also enjoys the comforts of a well equipped excursion boat. Departing at 9:00 A.M you’ll have plenty of time to stop by DeLunas Cuban Cafe (steps from the Reef Keeper), have a great breakfast , get a cup of Cuban Coffee, and board our brand new New England “Lobsta” boat the Reef Geek. From there we’ll escort you and your guests to wilderness areas far away from the crowds of Key West where you can snorkel or kayak while enjoying a authentic eco-experience.
As we motor out of the harbor and make our way to the backcountry, our guide will share with you some of the wonder and beauty of a near shore tropical ecosystem. Once on location we’ll load up the kayaks, paddle-boards, and snorkel gear and spend the next few hours on a relaxed easy paddle, stopping to snorkel and explore patch reefs, mangrove forests, and enjoy all the creatures we’re lucky enough to encounter. Once back at the Sherpa we’ll relax on the sundeck enjoying fresh fruit, healthy snacks, and bottled spring water. After a short ride back to our marina, your crew will depart, and the privacy of Sherpa with all her amenities is yours to enjoy for another evening.
