Miami On The Water

Boats, Florida and Miami or Fort Lauderdale are synonymous. A full-day or half-day cruise along the Intracoastal Waterway or out on Biscayne Bay is what Miami is all about – your vacation or holiday is not complete unless you charter your private yacht from Miami or Fort Lauderdale and do the water thing.

This is a short guide for visitors; we hope you can use it to plan your vacation on the water while you visit our beautiful beaches, sand-bars and bays, and of course, the famous Florida Keys. You can even see the dolphins swimming and leaping in our our clear waters in the wake of your immaculate yacht provided by the Boat Miami experts . Yes, there are excellent snorkeling spots, diving locations, places to anchor and simply hang-out and have a picnic, places to go sailing or even participate in a sailing race. Itineraries for your party or event boat, restaurants to visit, places to go, people to see while you are out on your private boat.

There are great places to go and things to see from the water in Miami and Fort Lauderdale; so many in fact, that it would be impossible to list all of them on this website.
