Florida Yacht Charters
A yacht charter vacation along the scenic shores of west Florida offers a favorably flexible itinerary that is easy to personalize based on the duration of your trip and your group’s unique travel preferences. With a plethora of world-class fishing locations, award-winning beaches, and quaint waterfront restaurants at your disposal, you’re free to explore Florida’s Gulf Coast paradise at your very own pace. Soak up endless amounts of radiant sunshine by day and feast your eyes on mesmerizing sunsets by night.
Yacht charter guests can explore the 1,700 islands and cays in the Florida Keys, and relax at beach bars, go deep-sea fishing, or snorkel major reefs. Many choose to stick close to the mainland in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, which offer access to world-class restaurants, luxury shopping, and famous nightclubs.
When To Go
Thanks to its sub-tropical climate, Florida yacht charters are perfect year-round. The high season for boat rentals runs from mid-November to mid-July, with peak season around New Year’s and Spring Break.
Winter draws more visitors to Florida’s sunny shores, while the shoulder seasons in fall and spring offer great weather and fewer tourists.
Regions Worth Highlighting
The southernmost city in America, Key West, is the ultimate yacht charter destination. Here, you’ll find it all: beautiful beaches, quirky beach bars, and loads of interesting history.
When planning your sail charter from Key West, make time for Key Biscayne with its breathtaking Bill Baggs State Park – it’s one of our favorite things to do when sailing Key West. You can moor overnight in the nearby No Name Harbor for a small fee and there is a grill offering food if you want to dine out.
There is no other place like Miami – its exotic mix of cultures offers an exhilarating experience. If you are a foodie or if you enjoy the nightlife, Miami is a must-stop on your yacht charter in South Florida.
Surrounded by water as far as the eye can see, Miami offers the water enthusiast a variety of activities and entertainment options on the water. Miami enjoys close proximity to famous destinations such as Miami Beach and Key Biscayne.
During your charter in St. Petersburg, you will enjoy beautiful seaside towns, secluded anchorages and fine marinas, white sandy beaches, sparkling blue waters, gentle winds, dolphins, and an array of wildlife. Bring your camera to capture the unforgettable Skyway Bridge and the multitude of seabirds, including ospreys, herons, egrets, and pelicans.
Treat yourself and those you love to a private charter in beautiful Florida waters.
