Have you dreamed of sailing off into the sunset, cocktail in hand? Well, this dream can become reality, and you don’t have to travel far to feel the balmy tropical breezes. The Florida Keys are an attractive alternative to a tropical island vacation. For Americans, easy flights into Miami, no customs hassles and no passports make this a no-brainer. Laid back with over 800 islands you will find that they offer the same first rate fishing, diving and snorkel opportunities that you would find in the Caribbean. Key West is one of the sunniest and warmest destinations on the east coast. The winter temperature is generally around 75-80 degrees with some cooler and warmer days mixed in. In the summer, cooling winds attract Miami locals looking for respite from the humid air in the city.
Florida is home to many luxury yachts, whether seasonal or permanent, there are many to choose from to fit your needs and budget. As a destination, Miami has a lot to offer and the trendy area of South Beach is a popular place to be and is known as the American Riviera. Known for its Art Deco architecture, it is a quirky neighborhood of more than 800 architecturally protected buildings from the 1930s and 40s creating an uber chic destination for celebrities and an urban neighborhood of eccentric residents.
Just six miles off the coast of Miami, Florida lays the tropical barrier island of Key Biscayne. With Miami International Airport and Miami Beach only 15 minute drive from Key Biscayne, this island makes a great jumping off point for Florida Keys luxury yacht charters. The shallow, clear and protected waters contribute to the pristine conditions of the Florida Keys. There are secluded coves and beaches, lively marinas and restaurants, wild life and fauna. Whatever your interests, you will find something to tantalize your senses. To maximize your time we suggest that you cruise from Miami to Key West and then return by rental car to Miami airport, a mere 3 hours drive.
