    About this property

    The Real Liveaboard Experience. Cruise Included

    The real live aboard experience. License To Chill is now located in Islamorada. Ever wonder what its really like? At anchor, in a quiet cove, perhaps dolphins in the morning. Some say its "living the dream". Come join us and find out for yourself. The yacht is not tied to a dock. Each day we go cruising to different anchorages, perhaps some fishing or playing with the inflatable toys in the bay. Transport to land is by inflatable dingy. That includes your luggage and supplies. Our home is a 55 foot Californian cockpit motor yacht. Built in 1991 we lovingly maintain her ourselves,(mostly).She has 3 staterooms,3 heads, a large salon and sundeck. The gally is complete with microwave, convection oven and a full size refrigerator. There is a on board diesel generator and portable back-up, plenty of power to run the air conditioning and all appliances simultaneously. Hey we're not camping here! This is what you can expect from just a one night stay. You arrive at the docks in Islamorada mid afternoon. Not to late cause we are cruising today. We will load you and your luggage on the dingy for the 10 minute ride out to the boat. There will be a brief orientation of the boat and its systems. Thereafter you will receive your very own "License To Chill". When you hear the throaty rumble of the big diesels you'll know its time to cruise. Relaxation should set in during the one to two hours it takes to get to our overnight anchorage. Along the way its not unusual to be joined by one or more wild dolphins surfing the big boats bow wave and wake. (7 is the record so far).We'll arrive and anchor just in time to witness a glorious sunset, most times. Boat drinks anyone? What about dinner? We can either dinghy in to a waterfront restaurant or prepare a meal on board. These are some of the tough decisions cruisers must make. There is nothing quite like waking up in a quiet cove aboard a private yacht. We like a morning swim around the boat. There will be fun inflatables tied off the back to relax in. Or you may want to get your tan on. The padded lounge on the bow is perfect for that. After breakfast, prepared by your captain, we will enjoy a leisurely trip back to home port. "Oh What A Lovely Cruise". (a jimmy buffet song. we play it at the end) All that in just a one night stay. Imagine the fun we can add with more nights! Breakfast is always included. On a one stay we will prepare a dinner for you on board OR you can choose to eat out. We will anchor in front of a waterfront restaurant. On multiple night cruises, we will alternate, one night eat on board, next night on land. BOYB .Its ok to bring a cooler filled with ice and your favorite alcoholic beverages. Check in time is 3pm. Check out time is 12pm.

    Entire place

    You'll have the entire house boat to yourself and will only share it with other guests in your party.

        Best vacation ever. Best hosts ever. Can't wait to go again.

        We celebrated my 65th and my husband's 70th Birthdays with a couple of our friends aboard License to Chill. What fun! From the moment we stepped aboard, we felt comfortable and attended to in every way possible. Kenny and Monica were such wonderful hosts, making sure our every need was met. The yacht was very roomy, providing adequate space and creature comforts. My favorite spot was on the sun lounge on the front deck. My husband's was on the bridge with Kenney as he expertly guided the yacht from one Anchorage to another. Monica would whip up the best meals with ease, she was amazingly fast in everything she did. If you've ever dreamed of taking a private yacht trip, you should definitely book with Kenny and Monica on the License to Chill. We've traveled to the Caribbean islands and Florida keys before on cruise ships and as fly in tourists. This private charter was by far the most fun we have ever had. We watched dolphins chase the yacht. Had a glass of wine as we watched the sunset. Danced to our favorite tunes under the stars. Frolicked in the crystal clear waters of the keys. Had a fishing tournament with Captain Kenny, and then Monica expertly prepared our catch for dinner. When we boarded, Kenny gave us a business card, told us it was our license to chill, and that he wanted us to laminate it when we get back home so that anytime we felt stressed we could look at it and remember how to chill. We will always remember this trip and the two new friends who made our vacation so memorable.

        5/5 Excellent

          Exceptional Hospitality from very fun and informational Hosts

          The License to Chill boating experience was top notch! Our flight was delayed 3 hours and instead of a sunset cruise as planned, they gave us a morning cruise! After we boarded, Kenny and Monica gave us a fantastic welcome with a tour of the yacht. We sat in the moonlight and got to know each other. They had such great information about the Keys! Little did we know they had worked as Visitor Information representatives for years. They had phenomenal suggestions for the rest of our time in the Keys. They took the time to know what sort of activities we wanted to do in the Keys and tailored their suggestions to that. WE WERE SO GRATEFUL for their suggestions. We couldn't have had the same experience on our vacation without their help! The yacht was cozy but still had two staterooms and 3 heads. They showed us how they anchor up and back down again; showing us what the real yachting experience is. They provided us breakfast the next morning and were so attentive to us so that we could enjoy our coffee in the sunrise. We didn't have to ask for anything. They already thought of everything! After we left them, we continued to text them pictures and sharing our experiences with Kenny and Monica! I would recommend License to Chill Real Liveaboard Experience to anyone. Whether one night or longer, you will enjoy this amazing experience! Thank you Kenny and Monica!
