Surrounded by excellent and varied cruising areas, Florida is the perfect destination for a luxury yacht charter. Whether your dream is chasing big game fish, relaxing in turquoise waters and tropical island beaches, or spotting rare manatees and dolphins as you explore mangroves by kayak, you can find it in Florida. Private boat hire allows you to design your itinerary to explore tropical islands, chic cities, and barrier reefs in the utmost comfort, avoiding the touring crowd. Home of iconic Miami and yachting hub Fort Lauderdale, here you will be in good company as the stunning marinas host some of the finest superyachts who berth up to enjoy the high-end dining, golf, and top up on winter sun.

Best Time To Visit: Winter and spring are warm and avoid the potential rain of summer. November to May offer reliable weather.

Key Cruising Areas: The Intercoastal Waterway on the west provides sheltered sailing perfect for big game fishing. The Keys provide excellent sailing around barrier reefs, and the Everglades (southwest) is a wild, remote area great for bird and wildlife spotting.

Don’t Miss: The Florida Keys are the only living coral reef in the US. The string of tropical islands stretches for 150 km, well-known for great fishing, diving, and snorkeling. Spend a day sailing the turquoise waters of the island, then berth in Key West to sample the famous nightlife.

Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The makeover of downtown Miami has been accompanied by a wonderful evolution in the restaurant scene. Try the sautéed snapper at the Matador Room for perfect, simple food in an elegant setting.
