Boating Capital of the World
With a Florida yacht charter, you will have your pick of great destinations in the Atlantic Ocean. South Florida, the Florida Keys, and the Gulf Coast. The boating areas of Florida are conveniently located and offer a memorable sailing vacation in the tropics. The three main sailing and cruising regions in Florida include the South Florida region, The Florida Keys, and the Gulf Coast.
Florida is the boating capital of the world, with more registered boats here than any other state in North America. Plus, at least 100,000 out-of-state boats ply Florida waters on any given day.
The boating areas of Florida are conveniently located and offer memorable sailing vacations in the tropics. Numerous sized charter yachts and rental boats are available to match your comfort and desires. From sailboats, motor yachts, bareboats, fishing, scuba diving and luxury yachts, Luxury Yacht Charters is sure to have what you are looking for. When planning a Florida yacht charter vacation, you’ll first want to learn more about Florida’s top yachting areas.
From Jacksonville down to Miami, the waters off the Eastern shore of Florida are populated year-round with boats of all shapes and sizes; from small sailing catamarans to luxury superyachts.
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 a number of waterfront festivals. Here you will find world-class fishing. The city hosts one of the largest kingfish tournaments in Florida and the shallow-water fishing in the salt marshes is as good as it gets.
In southern Florida, the Greater Fort Lauderdale area has been called the “Venice of America” (more than 300 miles of inland waterways) and the “Yachting Capital of the World” (more than 40,000 yachts call it home). The annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is one of the largest events of its kind in the world. The Gulf Stream runs just a few miles offshore, luring blue-water anglers. The nearby coral reefs are a haven for scuba divers. If you are planning a crossing to the Bahamas, Fort Lauderdale is a good launching point, as is Miami, about 25 miles to the south. Many South Beach boaters run the 50 miles out to Bimini and come back the same day.
The Florida Keys
Stretching from Biscayne National Park in the north more than 125 miles to Key West to the southwest, the Florida Keys has more opportunities for boaters than any other place on earth. Fish, dive or just cruise the islands, seven days a week, 12 months a year.
Each island or key has its own 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. But the crowning jewel of the island chain is Key West, the Southernmost City and home of the best sunset in the continental United States. From Key West, it is just a 70-mile crossing to Dry Tortugas National Park, home to Fort Jefferson, and its world-class snorkeling. This port town inspired Jimmy Buffett to sing, so be sure to swing by Margaritaville for a cheeseburger in paradise.
Select from different ports to start from like Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, South Beach, and Key West for your Florida Keys yacht charter.
The Gulf Coast
The cruising and sailing areas of the Gulf Coast extending from Cape Romano (Marco Island) in the south to Venice Inlet to the north. Also including Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Boca Grande, Gasparilla Island, Cayo Costa, Useppa Island, Cabbage Key, Pine Island, Naples, Labelle, Clewiston, and Lake Okeechobee. These quiet protected sailing areas offer unspoiled natural beauty and ease of navigation.
