SAILING ITINERARIES



Day 1– Stock Island to Newfound Harbor - Little Palm Island

Depart Base after checkout, sail Eastward in the Hawk's Channel towards Newfound Harbor where you will spend a quiet first night at anchor. Dolphins & Turtles are frequently sighted all through the waters of Hawk's Channel so keep an eye out. Once you have dropped anchor you can take the dinghy to Picnic Island for wander about & swim. Smaller groups can dinghy up a residential channel to reach Looe Key Tiki Bar & Boondocks restaurant.

For an utterly luxurious 5 star experience consider visiting Little Palm Island Resort for dinner or Sunday brunch. You can also do overnight dockage which affords full use of the resort facilities & Spa. Reservations for the restauran and pre-approval for dinghy dockage are required, as is proper attire. Bonus while ashore, the miniature native Key Deer and many tropical birds that frequent the resort grounds. This is an utterly fantastic pace, rated one of the top resorts in the U.S. An overnight sleep starts at $500.

Approximately 24 NM - 4 hours under sail to top of channel for Newfound Harbor

Day 2– Looe Key Reef

Get an early start this morning to ensure a good spot. Looe Key Reef is 5 miles south of Little Palm island. It takes about 90 minutes to reach the reef from the anchorage. This is one of the most colorful and teeming of all the reefs in the Keys. You will literally have your breath taken away by the multitude of fish & creatures on the reef area. Almost guaranteed to get up close & personal with 300 lb. Goliath Groupers. Take up a mooring ball and enjoy some of the best snorkeling you 'll experience in the Keys. Head back to Newfound Harbor for the night.
