Want to feel like a millionaire for a day? Rent your own private boat from one of Miami’s local sailing companies. These businesses will take you out into Miami’s waters and beyond, giving you, your family, and friends the VIP treatment while you take in the sights of the city from the other side of the coast. All aboard!
Golden Yacht Charters
Your boat options are endless at Golden Yacht Charters, where you can rent everything from power, fishing, pontoon, jet, and party boats, all the way up to 143-foot yachts. In fact, the company says it has the largest selection of chartered yachts in South Florida and has access to every single yacht in production. Once you’ve picked your fabulous ride, decide how long you want to be on the water. Four hours? A full day? Six days? The possibilities and destinations are endless. Get on board, sit back, and relax while a full crew takes care of you and your guests. Sip on champagne, sit out on the deck, and listen to a tour of the skyline and waterfront properties. Then head inside for a fully catered meal. When the yacht is anchored, you can jump overboard and swim or ride jet skis along the coast.
Sailing on Biscayne Bay
For the ultimate relaxing experience, rent a sailboat from Sailing on Biscayne Bay. Just think about it: no fuel smell or loud engine noises. The company offers rides in Biscayne Bay aboard towering 40-foot sailboats equipped with all the luxury amenities you could dream up. Choose between a four-hour, six-hour, or full-day trip and pick which time of day you’d most want to cherish. Sunset or nighttime under a full moon sound pretty ideal. On board you’ll get snacks such as shrimp ceviche, fruit, and cheese. Bring your own bottle of wine to pair with them. You’ll also get to stop over on a private island. There you can snorkel around the mangrove trees, ride a kayak, or motor a dinghy toward a bird sanctuary. The best part is that a professional photographer will document your trip so you really will never forget this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
