Easy to love accommodations. We had 4 adults for a 4 night get-away. Plenty of space for a boat. Janet & Nancy made certain we were well cared for. The sail was fantastic. Boat has easy access to the tiki hut. Incredible sunsets!

Wedding in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding and honeymoon on Lions Paw and could not have enjoyed it more. Janet and Nancy really care about you having a fantastic trip, and we were able to have a wonderful adventure while feeling 100% safe and secure. Lions Paw is a beautiful and comfortable boat that was just perfect for exploring. I can’t say enough what a wonderful time we had. Great food, great company, and a beautiful ceremony, all in an amazing setting. Thank you so much Lions Paw!!!

I cannot imagine a better view of watching a perfect sun set and sun rise after a day of sailing in the most beautiful waters and after a wonderful dinner on board the Lion's Paw. What a fabulous overnight to check off on my bucket list. The accomodations were really neat compared to a "room" on land. Best of all was the enthusiasm and energy the crew [both Capt. Nancy & 1st mate Megan] brought to our adventure. Unfortunately the weather was a little uncooperative to really get the most out of our trip but Capt. Nancy and Megan made sure we still had an unforgetable experience. Not only did they share their sunshine smiles and knowledge with us but thier first and formost focus while with them was for our safety. I dont know about the other 3 travelers with me but I am ready to sign up next year for an even longer stay.

Fantastic Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing time on the Lion's Paw. The cabins are spacious and have all of the basic amenities necessary and the captain is always available within an hour to answer any questions (by phone). The marina location is truly unique and is both beautiful and has everything you need (we barely spent any time in Key West proper because of this). The boat offers a truly unique opportunity to see the off the beaten track local marine spots around Key West and to also experience actual sailing (rather than just power boating). The crew is knowledgeable about the history and nearby island locations and can take you to the exact spots where you can get a feel for the spectacular scenery and marine wildlife.

Don't expect 5-star amenities comparable to a hotel, but it is about the best small boat marina environment you will find. Encountered some issues with the marina services for the boat but the captains were on top of it within an hour and resolved things within a matter of a few hours. They are very focused on you as a customer and will do whatever is in their power to make sure you have a fantastic stay on their boat.

Family time

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was a perfect vacation for us. Two families got on like one. Unique environment, close quarters, and no problems! It's far enough away from the noise and trapping of KW but close enough to enjoy it when we wanted. We shared cooking duties , one cook at a time, because the galley is small but that brought out the best in each of us. We had no plans for the entire week except for the day sail with the Captain which was lots of fun. We woke up everyday and decided what we would do... a perfect week!
