yachting is the ultimate opportunity to explore the turquoise waters, white sand beaches and magical ports of call of South Florida. From the Miami Beach Marina at South Beach, you can easily cruise to Florida’s Outer Islands, the Florida Keys, the Intracoastal Waterway and the Bahamas. Bimini lies 55 miles due east from Miami, and Key West is 125 miles south by southwest. Many consider Florida the “close to home” getaway for yachting, where without venturing too far, you are greeted by pristine waters teeming with marine life, tropical scenery, breathtaking city skylines, and dramatic sunsets. The Port of Miami offers luxury yachting, sailboat charters, dining and gaming cruises, deep-sea fishing excursions and bareboat charters. Miami is a world-class city bursting at the seams with attractions, including a wide variety of recreational opportunities, nightlife and shopping. Experience Miami Beach’s famous Art Deco District, the Bayside Marketplace and Bayfront Park. Cruise under the MacArthur Causeway past Star, Palm and Hibiscus Islands, where you’ll see spectacular waterfront homes, including the one belonging to singer Gloria Estefan. Beautiful Fisher Island, in Biscayne Bay, is accessible only by private yacht, ferry or helicopter, and is the former home of the Vanderbilts. This is just a sampling of the abundant and interesting anchorages and ports you will find when yachting throughout Miami and the southeast coast of Florida.
