Things To Do

In today’s modern age, technology is at our fingertips. Worlds of information can be accessed through our phones, connecting us with spaces we've never been to and people we’ve never spoken with. That advancement in technology has also become prevalent in our transportation - automobiles have turned into moving computers and motor boats have become more and more like automobiles on the water.

So how can Sarasotans unplug and unwind while still enjoying the natural beauty the area has to offer? By booking a private charter with Key Sailing, the long-time local sailing outfit. Key Sailing’s private charters start at $200 per hour, can seat up to 12 guests, and offer 2,3, and 4 hour charters.

"Our most popular outing is our 3-hour tour - that seems to be perfect for most people’s budgets and allows us to get out a little further into the Sarasota Bay. We sail immediately out of the slip and then you’re there - you just ride the wind. Most of the time that’s in the Sarasota Bay, but it can be towards the edge of the Gulf - people sometimes assume the better sailing is from the gulf but that’s not always the case - you can see all seven barrier islands from the Bay,” says Sarasota native Jan Solomon, who runs Key Sailing with her husband Tim.

Each charter, no matter what the length, is customized for the passengers as much as possible.

“We’re very conscious that for every single guest, it’s not just a boat ride for them. Many have been saving up, or they haven’t seen their grandchildren, or they haven’t had a date night without kids. This is a big deal for them to do - it’s something they look forward to, so we make sure to look forward to it ourselves,” attests Jan.
