Florida Yacht Charter
A day out on the water,
an overnight trip
or a lingering vacation.
The cruising grounds of Miami provide a seemingly inexhaustible list of options to charter guests and our fine selection of luxury yacht rentals will make your Miami yacht vacations absolutely unforgettable.
Experience Miami's skyline from the deck of your yacht, better still as a backdrop to dinner on the aftdeck.
Miami Beach is separated from downtown Miami by the upper reaches of Biscayne Bay and between the two you will find Miami's most iconic views.
The charms of the downtown skyline, the exclusive islands that are home to the rich and famous, through a series of channels to the Port of Miami and Bayside and of course, Miami Beach itself - sometimes disconcerting and always fascinating, fabulous beaches, excellent shopping and the people… well, you have to be there to believe it.
Your Miami luxury yacht charter will be a breathtaking experience!
Iconic Miami Attractions
- Take a relaxing cruise along the intracoastal waterway admiring the charm of the downtown skyline as you make your way to Bayside Market, hosting over 150 speciality shops, cafes and restaurants where you can soak up the lively atmosphere with its daily live music and fun vibe.
- Make passage past Palm island and Hibiscus island to the sprawling, magnificent homes on Star Island. With just 30 odd homes, Star Island is synonymous with superstar style and glamorous lifestyles and boasts more celebrity residents per square mile than anywhere else outside Hollywood.
- Miami Beach is the best area in Miami for soaking up some rays on a sandy beach and it is something of a legend in the city. Glitz and glamor are the order of the day at the many restaurants and night clubs and the quirky Art Deco district is a must-see.
Travel southwards on your Miami private yacht charter, from Miami under the Rickenbacker causeway and into the azure waters of Biscayne Bay following the intracoastal waterway as it winds its way down into the Florida Keys.
Mangroves and sea grasses provide habitat for fish, shellfish, sea turtles, and manatees, particularly in the southern part of the bay, and bird life abounds along its shores and shallow waters.
If sightseeing is your thing, hug the mainland of the bay down to Dinner Key and its famous marinas with lots of little shops and restaurants.
For the more active, make your way to Key Biscayne and visit the Nixon Beach sand bar and Stiltsville.
Biscayne Bay Attractions
- The tropical oasis of Coconut Grove has a warm, laid-back atmosphere with charming boutiques, galleries, gourmet restaurants, sidewalk cafes and sailboats anchored at the bay. The neighborhood’s distinct bohemian flair and lush tropical canopy make this one of Miami’s favorite neighborhoods for locals and visitors alike.
- Key Biscayne has terrific beaches and the added appeal of being sandwiched between two major parks – Crandon Park to the north and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park to the south. Key Biscayne also offers a nearby coastal barrier reef, stellar water activity options and local eateries famous for their food as well as their idyllic location.
- Further south the remains of historic Stiltsville tells an incredible story of pirating, bootlegging and The High Life. Originally the collection of colorful houses on stilts were a prohibition-era stopover for the rum-run from the Bahamas, eventually becoming the South Beach of its day in the 50s when it was the place to be seen.
The Florida Keys located south of Miami are a special place made up of more than 40 islands. People are drawn to the unique atmosphere of the Keys, the lure of world-famous sunsets, tropical beaches and spectacular snorkeling and scuba diving sites.
Key Largo is the first and northernmost of the Florida Keys, home to tropical hardwoods, winding creeks, two state parks, a national park and a portion of a national marine sanctuary.
Key Largo calls itself the “Diving Capital of the World” because of the living coral reef a few miles offshore which attracts thousands of scuba divers and sport-fishing enthusiasts.
Watersport activities in Key Largo are plentiful, including fishing, kayaking and swimming with the dolphins.
Key Largo Attractions
- The best way to see the underwater beauty of the Florida Keys is up close and personal on a scuba diving adventure - wrecks, marine life and attractions like the "Christ of the Abyss" statue.
- If you find diving intimidating or don't want to take the time to learn the necessary skills, the clear water of Key Largo makes snorkeling just as enjoyable an experience.
- If you're in the mood for a light workout on the water, go kayaking either in the Everglades or long the Key Largo shoreline.
- Casual or upscale dining is a must in Key Largo, with excellent fish houses, local beach clubs and cafes boasting a variety of South Florida traditional specialties. The nightlife is relaxed yet packed with fun, so grab your flip flops and get cozy with the locals!
Bimini consists of two main islands; North Bimini Island and South Bimini Island, as well as numerous cays. Located just 50 miles off Florida’s coast, it boasts miles of pristine beaches.
The Gulf Stream rushes north, washing past Bimini, feeding and warming its coral reefs and serving as a watery highway for everything from marlins to mantas, dolphins to sea turtles. Even the famous author, Ernest Hemingway, was lured to Bimini by tales of the incredible fishing available here.
Only one airport serves Bimini. Daily scheduled air service is available from Nassau, Grand Bahama and Florida. There is also a seaplane service into Resorts World Bimini.
Being as close as it is to Florida, it is an ideal destination for Florida overnight sailing trips or as a first-stop on Bahamas yacht charters departing from Miami or Ft. Lauderdale.
- You can snorkel in shallow lagoons and over reefs, kayak in the creeks, flats, ponds and the ocean, go kite-boarding and paddleboarding, ride a water trampoline or Hobie Cats, and have a unique adventure swimming with wild Atlantic spotted dolphins.
- More than 50 record-setting catches have been made in Bimini waters, including huge tuna, wahoo and swordfish. The flats have an abundance of bonefish and wrecks close to shore hold large grouper, fan-size grunts and schools of snapper.
- Bimini might be small, but it’s big on beaches, most of which have fine white sand and are found on the west side of North Bimini. The most popular is a long section of three continuous beaches, stretching from Alice Town to Bailey Town.
- Bimini offers fun-filled family activities from dawn to dusk. Activities on the water include swimming, picnicking, snorkeling, kayaking and much more.
