Camp on a house boat in Key West!

The space
YOU KAYAK TO BOAT & Camp! We have smaller boats available for rent if you wish to not kayak. No frills or accommodations! Budget “boat camping” ideal for 2 or 3 backpacks/adventure travelers. This 50 foot house boat is Chic & Stylish & all yours. It’s moored in a shallow channel (not in a marina) 4-5 miles (driving) from Old Town/ Duval St. Access from the boat to shore is a 12 minute kayak ride- FREE to use. Come and go as you please using the kayak. NO NIGHT CHECKINS

This space is basically an unusual and peaceful place to lay your head and live like a pirate in Key West! Enjoy swimming & kayaking! There is no air conditioning or real electricity. You will need to leave the windows open for air flow. We provide locks for kayaks.

Anything you bring must travel over water by kayak..keep in mind when packing.


This is primarily camping on a boat & is NOT in a marina but a shallow channel YOU MUST KAYAK too. (Please note there are a few deep areas so all guests MUST be able to swim for safety reasons). Your stay includes unlimited use of kayaks WHICH YOU NEED TO GET BACK AND FOURTH. This listing lets you come and go as you want 24/7. You are not bound to a dinghy transport schedule. The boat is only for sleeping on, not boating.


FREE PARKING


During the winter and when weather is bad it is often windy in Key West. We are in a protected channel, so waves are minimal BUT at times tides/wind can make kayaking more difficult. IT IS NOT FOR FIRST TIME KAYAKERS AND YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM IN CASE YOU TIP THE KAYAK. Although it is shallow, there is no lifeguard out there and can be strong current depending on weather conditions. If you can handle kayaking and able to swim, read on.


KEY POINTS:

1. Primitive “camping” on a boat means no electricity or running water but there is a solar shower (2.5gallons we provide for you) after that you must bring water jugs and fill yourself. It is a hanging camp bag shower on outer deck.
2. Flashlights/hanging lights are provided. Ports- toilet is on board NO PAPER IN TOLIET.
3. Around 4 to 5 miles to Duval Street by car. Parking is available
4. Small space ideal for two or three people.
5. Arrive by 6pm NO NIGHTTIME CHECKINS
6. During high winds kayaking can be a little challenging. During calm weather the channel is an easy paddle but we cant predict the weather. You should be in a relatively good shape. Kayak has a 250 pound weight limit.
7. There is no way to cook onboard , just a cooler for you to store snacks


It is an experience in its own but you must be ok with basic camping amenities. There is no bathroom just a marine head and a solar 5 gallon shower. The mattress is a comfortable 6 inch foam.

We provide :

-A small cooler
-flashlights
-bed linens- fresh sheets, blankets, pillowcases, pillow
-solar shower
-kayaks
-life jackets and safety gear


You are responsible for kayaks, paddle boards, and paddles. If lost you will be charged
