Sport Yachts
Party Catamarans
Miami and its surrounding waters are among the most beautiful in the world and the city itself is best seen from the water. The back-drop of Miami’s skyscrapers and the cruise-ship port are amazing, especially from the deck of your private yacht or sailboat.

Experience unique destinations around Miami or Fort Lauderdale such as Biscayne Bay, the upper Keys, the Nixon House on Key Biscayne and its famous sandbar where you can safely swim off the boat and have a picnic lunch or dinner aboard. See the famous houses on stilts in Stiltsville that date back to the 1930’s and sail by the famous old Viscaya mansion in Coconut Grove.

Cruise past Star Island and Fisher Island where many of America’s TV, motion picture, music stars, and sports celebrities’ own houses. The Flagler monument, Miami Beach, and the Intra-Coastal waterway are also on our favorite-places list. Al Capone’s Miami residence on Palm Island and many others.

If you’d rather eat ashore, there are many restaurants along the Miami River that are popular with the locals such as Kiki on the River, Garcia’s and Seaspice.

Here are some do’s and don’ts:

  • Non-Commercially licensed private yachts or sailboats cannot take more than 13 guests on board at one time. Keep the size of your group down or choose from one of our larger commercially licensed sailing catamarans that can take up to 50+ guests.
  • You can bring your own provisions, or we can supply nutritious picnic style light lunches or dinners and beverages at a very reasonable cost.
  • On the larger vessels, we can provide a private chef who can prepare special gourmet lunches or dinners for your special event.
  • Be careful of scammers and fly-by-night brokers. is part of the American Yacht Group that has been chartering yachts in Miami and Fort Lauderdale for over 20 years.  We know the boats, we know the crews.
  • We can arrange for a wide variety of watersports equipment and water-toys, i.e. snorkeling equipment, jet-skis, etc.
