YOU KAYAK TO THE BOAT. No frills accommodations! Budget "boat camping" ideal for 2 backpackers/adventure travelers. The 22-foot sailboat is SMALL, cute & all yours. It's moored in a shallow channel (NOT in a marina) 4-5 miles (driving) from Old Town/Duval St (main tourism). Access from the boat to shore is a 2-minute kayak ride - FREE to use. Come & go as you please using the kayak, & there are bars, restaurants, mangrove mazes & cool things near the boat. NO NIGHT check ins; arrive by sunset
