Our Summer 2020 trip will be from July 4-19. This includes the road trip down to south Florida and back. We’ll be leaving out of Ft. Lauderdale on a boat called Free Bird. Free Bird is a 45′ Lagoon catamaran with 4 double cabins plus two peak berths and additional berths in the salon.
On this trip, we will sail the Florida Keys out to the Dry Tortugas.

——————[The following is information about passports, which are not required for this trip to the Keys. This may be useful for the NEXT trip, however!]
Important: You must have a passport to go to the Bahamas. A passport card will be fine if you have one, but otherwise, I recommend you get a passport book. If you don’t have a passport yet, do not wait another day – apply for a passport now. Click here for step by step instructions about how to get a passport quickly. Please note that government requirements for a passport are very specific. You must follow them exactly.
