Half-day Yacht Tour (up to 4 hours)
Hint: this is our most popular private tour!
For our 4-hour half-day yacht charter tour we recommend pick-up at the Miami Beach Marina or Sunset Harbor Yacht Club, depending on where your reserved boat is located. Both marinas are conveniently located in South Beach.
We begin your trip by cruising through the intracoastal of Biscayne Bay, passing by infamous Star Island where celebrities like Gloria Estefan and pharmaceutical billionaire (VIAGRA) Phillip Frost live. Continuing by Hibiscus Island and Palm Island where you will enjoy more of the extraordinary architecture and impressive beauty of the waterfront mansions, while sipping champagne served by our stewardess.
Then turn the bow toward Government Cut and pass by a man-made island named Flagler Monument Island, where a 104-foot obelisk stands in memory of Henry Flagler. Here you have a choice to anchor, swim, or jet ski your way on the island and explore. Since the uninhabited Monument park is only accessible by boat, you will frequently have it all to yourself on weekdays.
Get back onboard our beautiful yacht and while you are drying up, our crew is setting up a fresh fruit & cheese plate and your favorite refreshments to continue the tour moving south toward exclusive Fisher Island and the Port of Miami area. You will pass by popular destinations in Downtown Miami and Brickell, like The Bayside Mall, American Airlines Arena, and the Arsht Center for Performing Arts. Another highlight is the picture famous McArthur Causeway (I-395) bridge, which lights up purple at night (see pictures above of this amazing view taken by our yachting clients).
Now it’s time to slowly cruise back to the marina or you may decide to be dropped off at one of the popular waterfront restaurants with dockage accessibility, like Sea Spice Restaurant, River Yacht Club, Zuma, or Casa Blanca Restaurant, just to mention a few. Whatever you decide, our crew is there to make your experience on the water an unforgettable one.

Making your way down south towards Biscayne Bay inlet passing by American Airlines arena, downtown Miami and Brickell area you are now heading on the open waters for a 30-45-minute boat ride where your captain will be able to pick up speed towards Biscayne National Park.
This tour is great for people that love the ocean and nature and breath in all the fresh air South Florida has to offer. You will cruise until you get to one of the most visited places by boat called Elliott Key or Boca Chita Key located in the northern part of Florida Keys with ancient coral reefs raised above sea level and the historical lighthouse built by Marc Honeywell in the early 1900’s. It makes this location a must for snorkeling, stand up paddle board, kayak, swimming, picnic, and just relax on these quaint peaceful keys. Our crew is here to make sure you are being well pampered with enough sun block, quench your thirst, and belly full.
Please, feel free to ask more questions about this location as it’s a popular destination and worth appreciating the experience on a full day charter. Spend as much time as you want in this area and when you are ready to head back if time permits we will take you for a quick tour in the Miami River where you will see spectacular high rise buildings and restaurants on the river specializing in seafood and mixology. It’s the hip and the new thing to do for Miamians (see also our “Miami River Bar Hopping Boat Tour”).
You can be dropped off to any of the coolest restaurants on the Miami River or just head back to the marina and reminisce all the good times you had on your tour.
