Day Sails in and around Miami

Historic Miami River

Relax on the spacious deck
Downtown skyscrapers

Experience Miami with a fun day sail

Our most popular option for a full day of sailing, snorkeling and exploring all that Miami has to offer from the water.  Depart from our dock on the Miami River for a sight-filled ride down the historic River with drawbridges, working tug boats, cargo ships and skyscrapers.

Once in Biscayne Bay the options are open.  Soak up the sights from Stiltsville to the mansions of Key Biscayne.  Spot some dolphins. Sit back and relax on deck or help hoist the sails and take your turn at the helm. 

Take a break from sailing and exploring to anchor for some swimming, splashing on a sandbar, paddling around in the kayak and enjoy lunch served on deck.

$600 (6 passengers max.)
Lunch and soft drinks are included

We want to give you an enjoyable day of sailing.  Talk to us about other options for a custom-made day sail for you and your group.
