Description

Take an educational and ecological tour that is simultaneously fulfilling and fun! Your knowledgeable captain will help you in identifying the local flora of the Keys as well as the Everglades National Park, including exotic birds, dolphins, manatees, and sometimes even the American Saltwater Crocodile!

Not only can you learn from the boat, but you can really get up close and personal with the environment! There are kayaks and paddles for you to actually go through the local mangrove forests, as well as snorkeling equipment and fishing gear!

Soft drinks are provided, and custom box lunches ($25 per person) and hors d'oeuvres trays ($50) can be requested ahead of time. When in season, Florida Keys Stone Crab Claws can also be requested at market price.

The half day boat trips begin at 10am and end at 4pm.

Additionally, the quarter-day excursions listed are only available for sunset. They are short three hour excursions, that vary in start time depending on time of year.

Boat Owner
Harold

Member since October 2015

Captain Harold Ochstein grew up in the Midwest, where he began sailing on the local lakes when he was 10 years old. He graduated from Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. After learning to dive in Indiana’s limestone quarries, he and his wife moved south.
After settling in Florida, Harold began purchasing and working on a large variety of power boats and sailboats that he rebuilt, upgraded and then sold. He gained extensive experience on his power boats taking friends and family on sport drift-diving trips, snorkeling trips, and fishing and camping trips throughout Florida and the Keys. After purchasing his first sailboat in 1995, Harold began working and living on sailboats; and eventually, he earned his Captain’s license.
In his career as a Captain, Harold made many deliveries of new Catalina, Beneteau and Island Packet sailboats to the Miami Boat Show. He also captained a 36’ power cat operating as a commercial snorkel boat in the Keys. He ran the 83’ schooner “The Heritage of Miami II,” offering day trips from Downtown Miami into Biscayne Bay. He also captained “The Heritage” and “Yankee,” an 80’ schooner, both in the Boy Scouts of America High Adventure Sea Base program in the Keys for two years. He has spent the last four summers here chartering his own boat with the Boy Scouts, taking scouts for 6 days and 5 nights of snorkeling, fishing and sailing.

FAQs

What type of yacht should I charter?

No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats on Sailo. For an exclusive experience, Sailo recommends chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, Sailo has access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 - 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask! more...

What should I bring?

Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with your captain regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, Sailo recommends using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple. more...

How long does a rental last?

The basic daily rental is structured as either a quarter-, half-, or full-day. A quarter-day is two hours, a half-day is four hours, and a full-day is eight hours. You can also discuss a custom trip with the boat by contacting the owner through Sailo. Most term charters (weekly rentals) are from Saturday to Saturday. Keep in mind that the boat generally needs to be back at the dock by Friday evening, and you will need to be off the boat on Saturday morning so they can prepare the boat for the next guests. more...
