How to rent and charter a yacht with skipper in Florida has never been easier. Whether you’re looking to let loose in cosmopolitan hubs like Miami or Ft Lauderdale, or you’re looking to relax and indulge in water sports in the Florida Keys, a yacht can meet all of your needs and requirements. Most visitors charter their vessels in South Florida, giving them ample opportunity to explore either side of Florida’s contrasting coastlines. Offering a Caribbean feel with an American twist, South Florida offers palm trees and coconuts galore, with spectacular food and good company.
South Florida and the Florida Keys are made up of over 1,700 islands, so those on a yacht charter in Florida are spoilt for choice. Here is a selection of popular sailing locations in Florida:
Right at the end of the Keys to the west, Dry Tortugas offers a unique opportunity for yacht rentals, as you are able to reach the islands effortlessly by yacht in an idyllically remote paradise. This collection of islands is superb for activities such as fishing or snorkelling and diving. Be sure to pay a visit to Fort Jefferson in Garden Key.
With such close proximity to Carribean climate and lifestyle, these islands are a tempting destination for many on a yacht rental in Florida. These beautiful Bahamian islands are only 45 nautical miles away from Miami and boast warm waters and exciting sea life.
Those who would rather stay close to the bustling nightlife can still enjoy catching their own supper at Biscayne Bay. Located so close to the heart of Miami yet surrounded by national parks made up of forests, beaches and natural habitats, this area of Florida offers stunning views and plenty of things to do, on and off board. Relax at sea as you watch the sun set over the outstanding downtown skyline, explore the sea life as you snorkel in the sunshine or delve into the urban nightlife awaiting you on Miami's coastline.
With a wide fleet of well-maintained luxury yachts suitable for romantic getaways, group holidays and once-in-a-lifetime family adventures, guests are offered a fully-trained crew and skipper with exceptionally high standards and service. Tailoring your trip with a personalised itinerary, choose a busy, action-packed vacation or a fishing excursion taking in some of the world’s best marine life. As a gateway to both the North Atlantic and the Caribbean Sea, crystal blue seas, coral barrier reefs and impressive vistas await on your next chartered yacht.
