Florida Yacht Charters | The Atlantic

From Jacksonville down to Miami, the waters off the Eastern coast of Florida are populated year-round with boats of all shapes and sizes. You will see everything from small sailing catamarans to luxury superyachts.

Northern Florida | Jacksonville

On The Atlantic side in Northern Florida, sail Jacksonville/St. Augustine and experience first-class marinas, ship supply stores, fine hotels, and five-star restaurants. Jacksonville caters to the boating crowd and hosts several waterfront festivals.

Here you will find world-class fishing. The city hosts one of the largest kingfish tournaments in Florida. Moreover, the shallow-water fishing in the salt marshes is as good as it gets.

Southern Florida | Ft. Lauderdale

In southern Florida, the Greater Fort Lauderdale area is the “Venice of America.” It has more than 300 miles of inland waterways. It also is the “Yachting Capital of the World” since more than 40,000 yachts call it home.

The annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is one of the yachting world’s most significant events. The Gulf Stream runs just a few miles offshore, luring blue-water anglers. The nearby coral reefs are a haven for scuba divers. 

Fort Lauderdale is a good launching point for a Florida yacht charter if you plan to cross the Bahamas. Miami is also a good starting point, about 25 miles south. Many South Beach boaters run the 50 miles to Bimini and return the same day.

The Florida Keys | Florida Yacht Charters

The Florida Keys stretch from Biscayne National Park to Key West. This beautiful destination has more opportunities for boaters than any other place on Earth. Fish, dive, or cruise the islands seven days a week, 12 months a year.

Key Largo

Each island, or “key,” has its personality. Scuba divers love Key Largo for its reefs and shipwrecks. Deep-sea fishermen from around the globe head to Islamorada, the Sportfishing Capital of the World. 

Key West

But the crowning jewel of the island chain is Key West, the Southernmost City. It is home to the best sunset in the continental United States. It is just a 70-mile crossing from Key West to Dry Tortugas National Park, home to Fort Jefferson. This port town inspired Jimmy Buffett to sing, so swing by Margaritaville for a cheeseburger in paradise.

Select from ports like Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, South Beach, and Key West for your Florida Keys yacht charter itinerary.

The Gulf Coast

The cruising and sailing areas of the Gulf Coast extend from Cape Romano (Marco Island) in the south to Venice Inlet in the north. The area includes

  • Fort Myers
  • Cape Coral
  • Sanibel Island
  • Captiva Island
  • Boca Grande
  • Gasparilla Island
  • Cayo Costa
  • Useppa Island
  • Cabbage Key
  • Pine Island
  • Naples
  • Labelle
  • Clewiston
  • Lake Okeechobee

 These quiet, protected sailing areas offer unspoiled natural beauty and ease of navigation.
