About this listing
Free Spirit is on her own mooring about a half mile from land. This is what I call kayak camping. I love that I have discovered a way to camp in the keys that is not pitching a tent, setting up camp or fighting bugs.
Free Spirit provides a place that is far enough away to feel free but close enough to enjoy Key West. Relax and enjoy the serenity.... our sunsets and sunrises and discovering nature in the keys is truly magical. Come get away and who knows what you will discover for yourself?
I love sharing Free Spirit and my knowledge of the area with good people. She has galley with a two burner stove, toaster oven, coffee maker, bbq, cooking utensils, pots and pans, dishes and silverware. A/C rarely used or needed with 20 plus windows. One large oscillating fan, one small. A quiet Yamaha generator, inverter for charging phones etc... Two double futons with throw pillows and blankets. Bed linens and towels. Large coolers. Two upper decks one with a picnic table, one with roman hammock and bean bag chair. Fresh water rinse on back deck. Marine head (toilet) with holding tank. No hand pumping necessary.
Just added new breakfast bar with games drawer, chess, checkers, backgammon, domino's and a deck of cards.
Guests can park at Cow Key Marina. Persons and gear will be transported by boat. Check in times are varied due to season, tide and weather. Both check-ins & outs are best done during daylight hours. Kayaks are included and your only transportation back to land and or marina's during your stay. Have your own boat by all means bring it. So be sure kayaking is something you like to do! Also since you are not on land it's important that you know how to swim.
I always do my best to be flexible with check in and out time, it can be discussed what works best for all of us. "We shoot for noon check out and after 3pm check in." Once a time has been set I will pick you and gear up with my boat and bring you back to the marina.
If your not interested in kayaking. I do offer a water taxi service.
Interaction with Guests
With your request....Please tell me a little about yourself....camping / kayaking experience etc.. and why you're interested in Free Spirit.

I am hear to help you get the most out your time in Key West. I'm just a phone call away if you have any questions. I'm happy to help in anyway, I offer a bunch of amazing tours if interested.
If you love the outdoors and nature Free Spirit is AWESOME for camping in the keys! I love watching the dolphins coming to play. Relaxing in the hammock on the upper deck watching the sunset turn into a star filled night! I love the feeling of being out and away from it all. Waking just before sunrise and going kayaking and taking it all in. Trust me our sunrises are just as amazing as our sunsets. So many gifts come from chilling out and slowing down on Free Spirit.
There are so many fun places to explore via kayak....ask and I will gladly point you in the right direction or guide you. Its a short cab ride from the airport. Want bikes, scooters or electric cars? Call me and I can arrange it for you.
