We’re located in the beautiful Florida Keys with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico through the protected Keys Back Country. The other side of our island home boasts protected access to an extensive reef system as well as the Straits of Florida, the Caribbean, Cay Sal Banks, Bahamas and the Atlantic Ocean.

We own and maintain a fleet of boats. Members have no-charge access to the fleet after they successfully demonstrate basic sailing skills and earn a rating. The Sailing Center also offers private boat owners with small sailboats limited dock space as well as launching and dry storage facilities for sail boats, kayaks and paddleboards.
