No frills accommodations! Budget camping ideal for 2 backpackers. The 22-foot sailboat is tiny, cute & all yours. It's moored in a shallow channel, 4-5 miles (driving) from Old Town/Duval St. Access to shore is via 5 minute kayak - free to use.


This is primitive CAMPING on a boat and is not in a marina, but a shallow channel you must KAYAK TO. (Please note there are a few deep areas so all guests must be able to swim for safety reasons). This boat name is the Mangrove Ninja! Your stay includes unlimited use of kayaks which you need to get to the boat.

--- If you don't see availability on your dates but need a cheap place please message us. We may have other options. _________________________________

This is the best value in Key West! PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISTING (I know it's long) before inquiring to stay.
Here are some KEY POINTS:

1. Primitive "camping" on a sailboat means no electricity or running water but there is a SOLAR SHOWER (you fill it with the jugs of water we provide and it heats in the) sun, battery fans, and a porto potty is available.

However! New for May 2017...we have added solar panels for charging cell phones and other small devices. This is not the same is true electricity and doesn't last forever.

2. Around 4 to 5 miles to Duval/old town by car. Free overnight parking included nearby. There are nearby spots if ours are full (rarely an issue)
3. Not in a Marina. You need to kayak to the boat. Unlike other boat listings that require you to call and arrange transportation to the boat, the kayaks are available 24/7 so you can come and go as you please.
4. Three-night minimum during winter, Two during summer. No pets. Please don't message me asking for one night. We keep prices low this way.
5. Ideal for people who like nature and outdoors.
6. Small space ideal for two people.
7. Please arrive before sunset. We do not do night check ins unless there is an extenuating circumstance that is conveyed in advance. A note about driving from Miami. It does not take 3.5 hours during winter. Don't listen to g00gle. Average time is 4 to 5 hours, depending on stops/traffic. Summer there is less traffic. Please keep this in mind when determining arrival times and let us know if anything changes. We usually let you choose a time that works and will meet you at the meeting point.
8. During high winds kayaking can be a little challenging. During calm weather the channel is an easy paddle, but we can't predict the weather. You should be in relatively good shape. Kayak has a 250 pound weight limit.
9. There is no way to cook onboard, just a cooler for you to store snacks.

**We also have two other "neighbor boats" nearby so groups of friends can rent both and each have their own space if they want.****

Still interested? Please read everything before sending an inquiry. A lot of questions are answered. ....BoatCamping D0T 0rg.

This is a very small sailboat secured to a storm mooring for your safety, additionally in a shallow area for your protection. It is in a channel; not the open ocean so rocking is reduced. Keep in mind that high-winded storms will still rock any boat on the water, so if you are prone to sea sickness don't book this. Access to the ship is done via KAYAK. You cannot just step on and off of the dock because there is no dock on the water, but a short kayak away is land.

This space is basically an unusual and peaceful place to lay your head and live like a pirate (practically camping). There is no air conditioning so you'll need to leave the hatches open while on board but we do provide fans. The ceilings are low - you won't be able to stand up. We provide locks for the kayak and sailboat to protect your belongings while you explore the local scene.

Free Parking is at the convenience store (we have one space reserved). You need a car for this type of accommodation so you can leave large bags in the car. Anything you bring must travel over water by kayak...keep that in mind when packing.

Please choose a check time between 2pm and 6:30pm. We do not do night check ins. I can occasionally arrange for earlier check ins if no one is checking out that day.

I will emphasize that this is for adventurous, budget travelers used to crashing just about anywhere and who are fit enough to kayak (about 5 to 10 minutes). You can throw a rock and hit the shore, and Duval Street is less than five miles drive (by car). Parking is a side street and a bus stop is right near the boat.

THINK: primitive camping on a boat. The rental is for sleeping, not sailing. At this time, we do not have a way to cook on the boat (we are working on it). We do have a small cooler for snacks/drinks.

Catch the sun slip below the horizon, watch egrets and other birds soar by, and gaze up at the stars. Open the top hatch above your head and fall asleep to a breeze and stare up into the night sky. See the fish jump and listen to the sounds of nature. Some guests have even seen dolphins and manatee while exploring the area around the ship.

On a rare occasion, you may see bio-luminescence in the water.

It is an experience in its own but you must be OK with basic camping amenities. There is no bathroom just a portable potty and solar-bag shower, however the mattress is a comfortable 6 inch foam.
We provide:
* Three small fans
*Bottled water
*A small cooler (can hold a few drinks or sandwiches)
*2 battery tap lights (please turn off when not in use) but we do recommend bringing ADDITIONAL flashlights (headlamps we find are the best).
*Bed linens - fresh sheets for the 6-inch mattress, blankets, pillowcases
*Bath towels and clothespins to hang them
*Cedar bug spray (but you may want to bring your own. The bugs aren't an issue during the day, and although they aren't terrible at night, during dusk (the hour during/after sunset) the mosquitoes WILL be out and you'll definitely want some).
*Solar shower
*Batteries for fans (please turn them off when not in use. )
*Porto Potty and toilet paper (which we empty and clean, hence the cleaning fee).
*One to two kayaks with paddles (depending on number of guests) which you can have unlimited use of. There are some awesome mangrove-lined channels near the boat you can explore that feels like you are in another world.
*Life Jackets and all necessary safety equipment required by the Coast Guard.
*Large container of freshwater (to use for solar showers or other basic washing needs) which we refill as needed.
**Snorkel Masks
Fun and Adventurous; It is an affordable option in town and ideal for people who like to be in touch with nature, learn about the world of boating, and want a different experience. This is a different side of the the Keys.

It fits two people in one bed (who don't mind sleeping close) and the kitchen table detaches and lowers to create a second bed for a possible third person. Both beds are in the same space with little room to wander. If you are more than six feet tall this probably won't be ideal for you. You have to be extremely comfortable with each other because there is little privacy within the boat.

We clean the boat regularly but it isn't a dazzling work of art. It's an old live-aboard boat that we are breathing new life into specifically to give budget travelers another option.

Sorry; no pets. The set up of this ship being out on the water just isn't ideal for them.

Adgang for gæster

Hele båden er din til at sove på, og du kan bruge kajakken (e) som du ønsker. Der er mange områder og mangrove labyrinter i nærheden af båden for dig at udforske. Bemærk venligst, at båden ikke er til rådighed for dig at sejle på - kun sove.

The entire boat is yours to sleep on and you can use the kayak (s) as you wish. There are many areas and mangrove mazes near the boat for you to explore. Please note that the boat is not for you to go sailing on - only sleeping.

Kontakt med gæster

We will meet you to show you how to get to the boat and basic/rules and safety etc.. Check in takes a while; it's not just handing over some keys. Please allow time for us to go over some basic safety guidelines and where everything is on the boat. We are happy to make recommendations for local attractions.

We (The owners) are Zappa and Amber, young (in our early 30s..) lifelong travelers and live nearby in a marina on another boat in case any major concerns arise. But, for the most part you're on your own.

Andre ting, der er værd at bemærke

BEMÆRK: Lås det op! Det anbefales stærkt af hver lokalboater, fortøjet eller forankret på vandet, for aldrig at forlade båden ulåst, mens uovervåget. Vi anbefaler at have en fungerende telefon, så du kan fortælle os, om du sidder fast i trafikken, har en flyforsinkelse eller andre problemer, der kan opstå, mens du er ude på vandet. At komme ind i båden indebærer at hejse dig op på stigen fra en kajak, der er i vandet og klatre over. Det kan være lidt vanskeligt. Vær opmærksom på dine egne fysiske begrænsninger og evner. Derudover er kajakkerne designet til genne(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)itsstørrelser. Der er ingen vandtaxi. Vi er meget tæt på kysten. 3-nat minimum om vinteren, 2 om sommeren; Ingen undtagelser. Dette hjælper os med at holde priserne lave. Vi opkræver et depositum til brug af kajak og gear og for at sikre, at båden forbliver i den tilstand, det var før. Forudsat at du respekterer båden og ikke mister kajakken og gearet, får du det nemt igen. Kajakker er ikke billige !!! En båd er ikke den samme som et hotel. Du bør IKKE booke denne indkvartering, hvis: * Du er meget tilbøjelig til seasickness. Selv om det er i en beskyttet bugt for at minimere rocking, vind eller andre bådene, der går forbi, kan forårsage bevægelse. * Du kan ikke lide både, kajak eller er bange for vandet eller kan ikke svømme. Jeg ved det selvfølgelig, men det sker stadig. * Du har brug for skabningskomplekser som skylning af toiletter og rindende vand. (Vi har vandkander, porto potte og solbruser ombord). * Du kan slet ikke håndtere varme. Husk, at tasterne er varme og fugtige fra juni til oktober / november. Det begynder at køle ned i november-april / maj. At være på vandet vil skabe en brise, men hvis du er en "vinter person", vil du måske gå den traditionelle rute for et hotel. * Hvis du ikke kan håndtere små mellemrum eller er store eller meget høje. * Hvis du har problemer med mobilitet eller ikke kan kajak. Hvis det er din første gang, forudsat at du er i relativt god form, skal du kunne finde ud af kajakken. Hvis du har nogen form for skade på hænder, fødder, osv. .. dette er ikke en god mulighed. Som en påmindelse har du fuld adgang til vores kajakker 24/7 og kan komme og gå som du vil. Venligst ankomme før solnedgang. Du er fri til at kajak om natten - det er bare nemmere for os at tjekke dig ind, hvis vi har dagslys. Hvis din fly / bus osv. Af en eller anden grund ankommer senere end solnedgang, opkræver vi en $ 20 sen check i gebyr. Lad os venligst vide på forhånd, da vi står op meget tidligt og ikke altid kan gøre for sent check-ins.

NOTE: Lock it up! It's highly recommended by every local boater, moored or anchored on the water, to never leave the boat unlocked while unattended.

We do recommend having a working phone so you can let us know if you are stuck in traffic, have a flight delay, or any other issues that can arise while you are out on the water.

Getting into the boat involves hoisting yourself up on the ladder from a kayak that is in the water and climbing over. It can be a little tricky. Please keep in mind your own physical limitations and ability. Additionally, the kayaks are designed for average-sized individuals.

There is no water taxi. We are very close to shore.

3-Night minimum in winter, 2 in summer; no exceptions. This helps us keeps rates low. We are charging a deposit for the use of kayak and gear and to ensure the boat remains in the condition it was before. Assuming you respect the boat and don't lose the kayak and gear, you'll easily get it back. Kayaks are not cheap!!!

A boat is not the same as a hotel. You should NOT book this accommodation if:

*You are very prone to seasickness. Although it is in a protected cove to minimize rocking, wind or other boats going by can cause motion.
*You don't like boats, kayaking or are scared of the water or can't swim. I know this goes without saying, but yet it still happens.
*You need creature comforts like flushing toilets and running water. (We do have jugs of water, porto potty and solar shower onboard).
*You can't handle heat at all. Keep in mind that the Keys are hot and humid from June through October/November. It starts to cool down in November- April/May. Being on the water will create a breeze, but if you are a "winter person," you might want to go the traditional route of a hotel.
*If you can't handle small spaces or are large or very tall.
*If you have mobility issues or cannot kayak. If it is your first time, assuming you are in relatively good shape you should be able to figure out the kayak. If you have any type of injury to hands, feet, etc... this isn't a good option.

As a reminder, you have FULL access to our kayaks 24/7 and can come and go as you like.

Please arrive before sunset. You are free to kayak at night - it's just easier for us to check you in if we have daylight.

If for some reason your flight/bus etc... is arriving later than sunset we charge a $20 late check in fee. Please let us know in advance as we get up very early and cannot always do late check ins.

Please read this description/listing in it's entirety (twice,discuss, and read a third time) before booking to make sure it is for you. We know it is long, but it is very unique.

NO DRUGS, and no smoking in the boat. Just close the door if you smoke on the outer deck so it doesn't smell like smoke inside.

No pets, since there is no place for them to go to the bathroom.

Lock the boat and kayaks when you leave. Turn off fans and lights.

Please clean up after yourself. Yes, we have a small cleaning fee to empty and clean the porto potty (and thoroughly clean the boat when you leave), but we ask that you wipe up any spills or other minor messes using the towels/rags provided. Thank you.

If you lose the kayak, paddles or lifejacket we will have to charge you for them.

Please call is if you are running low on jug water, batteries, or any other camping needs and we will be happy to drop them off. Don't hesitate to ask if there is anything else you need (or forgot to bring) and we'd be happy to let you borrow (sunscreen, bug spray, etc...)


By staying on the boat and using kayaks, you agree to take responsibility for any slips, falls, or other injuries that can occur while out on the water. We are providing an unique, floating accommodation so we do require you sign a standard liability waiver upon arrival.

Lastly, although the most of the water you'll be kayaking in is shallow, we require that guests know how to swim for safety reasons.

Super accueil et cadre unique que ce bateau au milieu des mangroves! Expérience unique, surtout lorsque l'on se balade dans les mangroves pour accéder au bateau, et de nuit! Zappa est super et nous a très bien accueilli! Merci encore!

Ett fantastiskt sätt att bo på om man inte är för bekväm av sig. Vi älskade det! Läs beskrivningen noga så att du vet vad du kan förvänta dig. Det är ett litet projekt att bo på en liten båt men helt klart värt besväret. Zappa och Amber fick oss också att känna oss väldigt välkomna och var väldigt lättsamma människor. Vi hade fri tillgång till både kajakerna och till snorkelutrustning och vi fick massor av tips på ställen att ta oss till i närheten. Verkligen, verkligen uppskattat! Det kan blåsa ganska friskt emellanåt och även om båten låg i en skyddad vik så gungade det rätt bra vid ett par tillfällen. Värt att tänka på om man lätt blir sjösjuk. Var redo att bli blöt. Det är inte helt torrt att kajaka och du vill säkert också ta ett litet dopp från båten någon dag. :)

For a Key West stay, it is recommend to stay at one of the Zappa's boats. You get kayak at your own leisure and explore many mangrove maze to see. Also amazingly peaceful stay with easy access to roadside. Most of all you actually experience Key West style rather touristy hotel. Thank you Amber & Zappa.

We had a great stay on Amber & Zappas Mangrove Ninja boat. It was certainly a unique key west experience that we would not have gotten with traditional lodging. Being able to kayak in the mangroves was awesome and sitting on the deck hanging out was very peaceful. It was really breezy/comfortable on deck, but very hot in the sleeping cabin as a heads up to guests not used to extreme heat if traveling in Summer months. We left our clothes etc in our car to get ready in the AC before going out - this made life a lot more enjoyable. If you're more of a budget traveler looking for something new to try I would definitely recommend boat camping with Amber & Zappa!

The Boats name 'Mangrove Ninja' describes perfectly the unique experience we made at this wonderful place! As it is close to nature but also central to town the island can be explored from different perspectives.

I'm a long-time, Key West resident who loves to show people the local side of they Keys! I'm a musician, work for a tour company called Kayak Kings, and I enjoy meeting new people. If you are staying on the boat you'll probably meet Amber as well :)
