YOU KAYAK TO THE BOAT. No frills accommodations! Budget "boat camping" ideal for 2 backpackers/adventure travelers. The 22-foot sailboat is SMALL, cute & all yours. It's moored in a shallow channel (NOT in a marina) 4-5 miles (driving) from Old Town/Duval St (main tourism). Access from the boat to shore is a 2-minute kayak ride - FREE to use. Come & go as you please using the kayak, & there are bars, restaurants, mangrove mazes & cool things near the boat. NO NIGHT check ins; arrive by sunset

We had a great time on the boat and made full use of the kayaks. Zappa and Amber were really friendly, relaxed and helpful. Really recommended to anybody who enjoys something a bit different and appreciates the simple life. Competence in a kayak really adds to the experience!

Such a fun experience! It was just as described. The sailboat was close to shore and an easy kayak trip away. And it was really cool getting to sleep out on the water under the stars. They also offered sunset boat rides and there were easily accessible restaurants by car or…
