Your stay and contribution to GeniGreen, an electric sailboat, to enjoy and learn to do some basic sailing. I love to go sailing and look to you joining me and learning to be my crew so I can sail every few days and enjoy getting to know you.
GeniGreen is an electric sailboat that teaches people to sail for free. I need crew to enjoy the benefits of the keys. It has two cabins, a galley, and stays at dock most nights or we sail to another dock while learning to become "Dock Savvy."
You will have access, as you treat with respect, to a pool, showers and rest rooms, and facilities on-board when under sail.
Interaction with Guests:
I am a mentor, crew, and since my knowledge of the boat is ownership your safety advisor. I am not a captain, this is not a live-a-board, but a tool to learn, visit, sleep and arise to go sailing every couple of days. You can tour the keys with some input from my experiences and visit Key West for a day trip easily.
I will be onboard most of the time you are.
Sometimes I have multiple guest, new to you, aboard which normally the idea and friendship exchange has been wonderful.
The dock and surrounding areas are all walker friendly.
Nighttime is very peaceful yet there are many diverse people at the dock that are great to get to know.
Many venues to eat and have fun within walking or driving in ten minutes.
If you have your own car rental there is only one road to everywhere and lots to see. The buses are easy and can get you to and from me easily from airports and/or cities. Key West is a bus ride away for hours or the day. I will be glad to get the schedules and we can print them off.
Two websites for Busses
Also I have a discount for enterprise and can rent a car with your contribution to the rental.
Other things to note:
Scuba Diving Classes available:
Local Dive Shops and a Local Padi Instructor available. Your stay must be 3-4 nights min.
You have online pre-class, and then when you arrive a pool session then the next day is your first open water dives. The second day you are certified. Thats it and the price complete is $576 all inclusive including all the gear you need.
We also have a Hookah system class for people who just want to try diving out for only $99 per day per diver.
If you are a certified diver, with card, you can go diving if weather permits and you show skills. I do not charge for diving but ask you refill my tanks by purchasing a refill card from my favorite local dive shop. Feel free to ask questions once your reservation is made.
With this and any other reservation if all parties agree we can, when available, sail to Hawks Cay Marina, where the amenities are amazing look for yourself. There is an additional fee for dockage and all charges which you will pay.
Also sailing to Key West is an option with additional fees for dockage (which you will pay directly) but still wonderful fun. we normally stay at Marina Village and they have a shuttle to Key West it's only available if you stay 5 nights onboard and want to enjoy sailing frequently.
You are staying in and near resort communities and must respect all written or explained rules.
1. No smoking onboard, on the dock, or in the pool or public areas. There is a hut and table area that allows smoking at the marina. Otherwise lots of places to walk.
2. All pool areas are to be kept clean, no glass bottles, and swim hours dawn to dusk. No sleeping anywhere but onboard.
3. This is a fun sailing vessel that we all mentor one another, not a party boat yet we can drink aboard, treat as though it were your home for a few days. IT IS!!
You will enjoy my home whether a single, couple, or family. It is my goal to help you enjoy by maintaining and making things onboard simple.
When you drive up you will find good safe parking.
The boats cabins do not hold large luggage so unpacking and/or soft bags are better leaving the large bags in the car (you will sleep with your baggage)
The showers are brand new and very accommodating, next to the resort pool. They have a protective code and locks.
Beds are in good condition and sheets will be provided clean & fresh. Along with towels, and water.
Provisioning will be based on what you like and what the boat needs and will be discussed after arrival as the shops are all close by....Read more
