Sunday nights there is even a potluck happy hour party organized by boat owners at the marina and all of our guests are welcome to join in the fun while making new friends!

These are fully customizable charters that may include activities such as snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding.

We had a great time during our stay on Libra! The manager who met us upon arrival was very friendly and helpful. He manages the boat and told us to contact him if we needed anything. We didn't but it was nice to know that someone was there in case we needed it.
The boat was very clean and spacious. Enough room for the 6 of us to spread out. Our favorite part was the roof deck where we watched the sun set every night!
It was such a cool experience staying on a houseboat! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice quiet retreat.
The only drawback was that it was a 10 minute drive to downtown but other than that everything was perfect!
Thanks Sleepafloat! We will be back!

Words Can't Describe the Experience

This was my second time staying on a Sleepafloat houseboat and I think this one was my favorite. Last time I had gone with my family so this time I went with the girls. We had a blast!
The local manager greeted us and was super helpful We only had to contact him once because we couldn't figure out how to use the TV remote and he helped us right away. It was really something very simple.
Others should not that the boat is not right in the center of town but about 6 miles away from Duval. It was fine for us though as we aren't big partiers and just wanted to relax and spend time with each other. We went out on the town one night and then other we stayed home and hung out on the roof deck eating, drinking, and chatting.
The boat itself was great, very clean and spacious. It was the perfect amount of space for the 6 of us, 2 slept on the queen bed, one in the double bed, one on the bunk beds and two slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room.
The only thing that would've made the experience better was if there was working Wifi on the boat itself. We had been told ahead of time that the marina Wifi was not very strong and didn't work so well on the boat but we could use it at the clubhouse just fine. It was a little inconvenient but we were on vacation and were better off not spending the entire time on the internet!
So glad to hear you and your girlfriends enjoyed your stay on Libra! We are trying to work on a solution for the Wifi but for now have to use the marina's which like you said unfortunately does not have a strong signal on the boat.
