The Miami Beach Marina is conveniently located in the heart of South Beach, at the corner of the MacArthur Causeway (836 East), and South Alton Road. It’s about a 15-minute taxi ride from Miami International Airport; and just a crab claw’s throw away from Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant, the oldest eatery on Miami Beach, famous for its delicious stone crabs and seafood. (They even have “take-out” stone crabs you can bring back to your boat, to start your charter out right!)
Miami Beach Marina boasts a full range of amenities, including restaurants, gourmet grocery, dive shop, swimming pool, clean restrooms with showers, laundry, luxury mega-yachts, and free parking.
Key West Yacht Charters – Discover a city where real estate titles date back to the Kings of Spain. Stroll the palm-lined streets and discover gingerbread mansions, tin-roofed conch houses, the John Audubon House, and Ernest Hemingway’s home. Walk in the footsteps of Thomas Edison, Lou Gehrig, Harry Truman, and Tennessee Williams. Gaze at the fabled treasure of the galleon Atocha. Discover tomorrow’s fine art treasures by Key West’s well-known and unknown artists.
Many of our charter guests love Key West so much, they simply daysail and come back to the marina at night. More adventuresome sailors can head out for a trip to the Marquesas and Dry Tortugas. This itinerary requires advanced navigation skills, prior experience anchoring overnight; and a sense of self-reliance, since you are mostly out of VHF hailing range. The “Dry Tortugas” was named by early Spanish explorers, due to their resemblance to the sea turtles which were once so plentiful, and the fact that they are “dry”, (i.e. there is no source of fresh water available).
Weather is a very important factor when planning a yacht charter trip to the Dry Tortugas. Listen carefully to the local forecast and check with our Key West manager before leaving.
