Planning your trip to Ft. Lauderdale

Half day Yacht Tour (up to 4 hours)

On a 4-hour half day yacht charter, we recommend picking you up from any marina in Ft. Lauderdale like the Pier 66 Marina or the legendary Bahia Mar Marina made famous in the Travis McGee mystery series.

Start your trip by cruising through the intracoastal waterways, making your way to the open ocean. As our crew is pampering you with beverages and snacks, you are now passing in front of Port Everglades where you can view the cruise ships arriving and departing through the port inlet.

Heading out toward the oceanside, moving north past Commercial Boulevard and Pompano Beach, you can enjoy the impeccable beaches of Fort Lauderdale while watching the sunbathers envious of the yacht you are on.

Near the inlet at Pompano Beach you can drop anchor and take a break snorkeling, swimming or jetting around on one of our available waverunners.

When you are ready, head back south to Fort Lauderdale Intracoastal and cruise along The New River where you’ll enjoy an endless parade of the magnificent homes of the rich and famous.

Finish your day by being dropped off at one of the restaurants with a dockage or you can return to the marina and bask in the joy of a well-spent, beautiful day.

Full day Yacht Tour (up to 8 hours)

For a full day yacht charter tour, the best starting point would be from the Miami Beach Marina or Sunset Harbor Yacht Club in South Beach, Florida early morning.

Choose your preferred yacht that you want to impress your friends and family and off you go cruising north towards Ft. Lauderdale.

Lauderdale.

Up to this point you are within a 3-hour cruising in a luxurious & relax mode being entertained by your favorite music while sipping champagne of your choice and possibly snacking on fruit & cheese platter all that can be provided by us for your convenience.

For the next four hours, which is also our recommendation for a 4-hour charter, your captain will show you a true spectacular waterway view of Ft. Lauderdale by first entering the Port Everglades inlet.

South Florida seasons

Here in South Florida, we are fortunate to have almost perfect weather all year round – making it possible to enjoy a boating, yachting, sailing or fishing trip at any given moment!

During the Summer, we have a short period of hot and humid weather, with temperatures from the mid-80s to low-90s (29–35° C) and occasional afternoon rain showers. This combination creates the perfect conditions for swimming, sunbathing, and ice-cold mojitos.

Winter temperatures average 69.2° F (20.7° C) during the day and 50° F (10° C) at night, making it the preferred time of the year for tourists from up north to escape the cold and soak up the sun while enjoying the cool, dry air. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year.
