Aloha Sailing Key West

Bringing the spirit of the Hawaiian Islands to the Conch Republic

About Us

The Ocean Is In Our Blood.


 Aloha Sailing Key West LLC is a sailboat charter company based in Key West, FL. Owners Eddie and Joanne Kertis are lifelong sailors, surfers, and divers who previously  lived in Hawaii for eight years. They blend the Aloha spirit with their love of the ocean in their home state of Florida. Eddie's grandfather owned a fleet of tugboats on the Three Rivers in Pittsburgh, so Eddie is the "Son of a Son of a Sailor." Eddie is retired from the Army and is a veteran of deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
