Hindu Charters and the Schooner Hindu
Hindu Charters is a family-owned, local business based in Key West, Florida offering daily sailing excursions aboard the Hindu, the oldest, most historic wooden schooner in the Keys. Built in 1925, Hindu is 90 years young and sails as good as she looks. With our peaceful morning mimosa sails and our sunset sails, which showcase the breathtakingly beautiful and colorful evening sky, sailing aboard the Hindu is a must do with any visit to Key West, and is surely the classiest, most elegant way to get on the water.

Daily Sailing Excursions
We go sailing twice a day. Descriptions of each of our trips are listed below. Check out our upcoming Special Events.
Morning Mimosa Sail
1.5 hours, departing at 9:30 am
Have time before your flight out of Key West? Squeeze in one last tropical experience before you leave! Every morning, Hindu sets out for a continental breakfast of locally made pastries, fresh Cuban coffee, and bottomless mimosas. Our family-friendly sail gets you peacefully enjoying yourself out on the water and back, all before eleven. What better way to start your day than sailing in a light wind under the Key West sun?
Evening Sunset Sail
2 hours, departure time varies
Currently departs at 6:30 pm
Key West Sunsets
A sunset cruise is a Key West classic, so why not do it right on Key West’s only classic schooner? Fine wines, craft beers, artisan cheeses and salamis, and small-batch chocolates are the perfect accompaniment to the natural spectacle. We limit the number of guests, so you can ditch the crowds and know you will be taken care of on our intimate cruise.
Private reservations can be made in-person on the dock or by phone at (305) 509-1771
We are docked on the C-dock of the Key West Bight Marina in Key West’s Historic Seaport.

Hindu also happily hosts privately chartered events such as weddings, memorials, birthdays, and themed parties. For more information visit our Private Events & Weddings page.
