Morning Star Sailing Charters

Morning Star Sailing Charters has been in the chartering business for the 34 years in the upper Keys doing Oceanside reef snorkels and sunset sails, is now proudly part of the Key Lime Sailing Club family!

Capt. Rick has handed down his family business to Paul and Key Lime Sailing Club’s great staff of captains.

Laid back, easy going, fun, sailing, snorkeling charters in Key Largo, for those that seek the best.

Sailing, Ocean Side Reef snorkeling and Sunsets on our 50' Pirate ship "Pirates Choice" or Bay Side on a 47' Eco friendly all electric sailing catamaran, for Sunset Sails, Just Sailing and Sailing Kayaking safaris all offered charters for two to six persons or up to 12 in one group Party. Enjoy the beautiful waters of Key Largo both Ocean side and the Calm waters Bay side in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

We are the longest existing sail, snorkel charter in the Florida Keys. Morning Star does it's best to NOT use the reefs that the Large cattle snorkel boats (49 or more Passengers) go to. We have been going the extra miles to the best reefs for years. We want our customers to see the best, not the worst that Key Largo has to offer.

Yes, we have seen the reports on some on line bulletin boards about "skip Key Largo when it comes to snorkeling". These are written by people who opted for the typical cheap cattle boat trips and have been taken to shallow, abused, small patch reefs with murky water.

We want you to know there are reefs off Key Largo that rival the best in the world! Morning Star will does it's best to take you to reefs "off the beaten path" that are teeming with sea life, beautiful corals, in crystal clear waters!

And when it comes to sailing, YES! We will sail as much as possible, it's a major part of what we do!

In a greedy world where quantity has replaced quality we want you to know that old time values and pride in ownership still exist with Morning Star Sailing Charters.

For the Sailors out there we offer 22' Catalina's and larger sailboats for rent on the Bay side, sail out to the mangrove safari, or over to the mud bath Island or a full one way day trip to South Dade Marina in the Everglades. We have a float plans that fit your adventure.
