Florida Keys Yacht Charter Itinerary
Florida Keys are composed of more than 40 islands south of Miami and offer the best diving and snorkeling in the continental US. The 110 miles of Florida Keys chain are also the home to North America’s only living-coral barrier reef.
World- class diving, clear water and the unique charm of the islands make Florida Keys one of the most popular boating destinations.
Day 1: Biscayne Bay & South Beach
When you arrive in the Sunshine State, you’ll be greeted by the crew of your South Florida yacht charter, who will assist you with your luggage and help you board your luxury yacht. You’ll get your sea legs with a cruise in Biscayne Bay and along the Intracoastal Waterway where the beautiful homes of the rich and famous can be seen on the Fisher Island, Palm Island, Star Island, and Hibiscus Island. We’ll return to dock at South Beach, where you’ll experience the best of Miami nightlife. Enjoy a drink and the ocean breeze at a beach party or head indoors to one of the finest night clubs in the country for a wild night of dancing.
Day 2: Head to Florida Keys
While you recover from your night of partying in Miami, you can sip on fresh-brewed coffee as we head south towards the Florida Keys. You can enjoy a variety of water sports along the way – from diving to wakeboarding, waterskiing etc.
Day 3: Key Largo
Today you’ll certainly want to go snorkeling or diving, in this self-proclaimed Dive Capital of the World. On land, there is much to explore and plenty of activities to take part in, including dining, shopping, golfing, and much more! Key Largo is a wildlife haven with two state parks, a national park, and a national marine sanctuary. The John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is America’s first underwater park and offers an amazing array of fishes and colorful coral. As the sun sets, you can tender out to Indian Key, where you can watch the colors fade from the sky on this natural key.
Day 4: Key West
In the early morning, we’ll cruise to Key West, where you’ll have to opportunity to view the unique island culture that is world-famous. As the southernmost point in the continental U.S., Key West touts clear blue skies and beautiful weather. During the day, enjoy watersports, fishing, diving, golfing or shopping, because once the sun sets, you’ll be ready to truly begin your Key West experience. Head to Mallory Dock for the Sunset Celebrations, which is an impromptu occurrence every day of the week. You’ll see musicians, jugglers, and mimes as you walk to one of the sidewalk cafes, open-air bars, or elegant restaurants. This is what Key West is all about.
Yacht charters to Key West are like nothing else. This island breaks all stereotypes and all the rules to become a destination that is uniquely Key West.
Many people recognize Key West as a party town. This may be due to the fact that there are more bars per capita here than anywhere else in the country. The local bars know how to treat their patrons. The Schooner Warf Bar, for instance, meets the needs of its clients’ wild side by starting happy hour at 9:00 in the morning. However, one thing that people don’t realize about the island is that it also has more churches than anywhere else in the United States.
Key West yacht charters are popular because of the Caribbean-style atmosphere, the beautiful sandy beaches, and the stunning coral reef. The 160-mile-long reef is the third largest in the world and the only one in the United States. Key West beaches are unlike any others in the Florida Keys, because the sand was shipped from the Caribbean on barges.
Day 5: Marqueses Keys
We’ll head even further west to the Marqueses Keys, a group of uninhabited islands that are surrounded in mangroves. You may want to take out the kayak and explore the environment up close. Enjoy an afternoon of water sports and sunbathing before relaxing on the deck of your yacht with a cocktail in hand to watch one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
Day 6: Little Torch Key
As we make our return trip, you’ll enjoy a fabulous gourmet breakfast al fresco style so you don’t miss a second of the stunning scenery. We’ll take time to stop at any of the smaller Keys we may have missed along the way, such as Little Torch Key for dinner at the exclusive Little Palm Island Resort and Spa.
Day 7: Miami
Today will be your last day on your Florida yacht charter. You’ll enjoy a delicious brunch served by your personal chef before packing your things in preparation of reaching Miami. We look forward to seeing you again as you take a return trip to the beautiful Florida Keys!
