SAILING THE FLORIDA KEYS - A 5-DAY GETAWAY!

17 December 2022
OCEAN GETAWAYS,
US East Coast
Sailing the Florida Keys is a phenomenal way to enjoy a fantastic and exotic yacht charter vacation. Short and sweet, your Florida Keys yacht charter itinerary can include the best sights of the stunning archipelago in just a long weekend. Of course, you always have the option to extend your time at each port of call and enjoy this region’s immense beauty at leisure.

Here’s just an example of a 5-day Florida Keys yacht charter itinerary:

Day 1: MIAMI

Part-America, part-Cuba, part-international and all Florida, Miami is as colourful and exciting a place to visit as you’ve ever envisaged. Laid-back beach bum by day and high-octane party animal by night, Miami is a kaleidoscope of experiences on any Florida Keys itinerary, where the sun shines endlessly and the mojitos flow seamlessly. With her Latin flair and Afro-American beat, this would have to rate as the most exotic of US cities, and on a yacht charter Florida Keys itinerary you’ll experience all her best bits yet. On land, you can tour Little Havana for a delectable taste of Cuban delights, take a private city tour to admire the revered Art Deco architecture for which the city is so renowned, and take an enlightening museum-crawl to learn all about the immigrants which have created this most vibrant city. Designer shopping and world-class dining are Miami’s other signature attractions.

Spend a few hours at the famous South Beach for a spot of awesome people-watching or if the clubbing scene is not your thing, find a quiet sunset anchorage from where to admire the glitzy glamour of Miami from the privacy of your own yacht.

Day 2: KEY LARGO

The Florida Keys are an astounding cluster of stunning islands, with Key Largo as its northernmost highlight. Home to North America’s only living coral barrier reef, this is a snorkeler’s paradise with innumerable diving sites within its National Marine Sanctuary. We’ll dock at the gorgeous Ocean Reef Club, where you can add a marine eco-tour or kayaking excursion to your Florida Keys itinerary. Come meet the resident manatees, sea turtles and crocodiles, among endless colonies of colourful tropical fish.

Day 3: LITTLE PALM ISLAND

On way to the glorious Little Palm Island Resort Key West yacht charters, we’ll do a dive-by in one of our favorite sites of all. Loee Cay, is a stunning reef brimming with hundreds of species of fish, including barracudas, moray eels, sergeant majors and angelfish. Keep your eyes peeled for elusive reef sharks and rays, and enjoy the sight of the beautiful corals that have been growing here for more than 7,000 years. You can also visit the artificial wreck of Adolphus Busch, nowadays home to enormous 400-pound Jewfish!

At the exclusive Little Palm Island, you can indulge in world-class dining and spa treatments, making for an absolutely delightful afternoon on terra firma.

Day 4: KEY WEST

The last two days of your Key West yacht charter itinerary will be spent discovering the 24/7 revelry of Key West, one of the most popular vacation destinations in Florida. Small and vibrant, Key West is a concoction of scenes, with amazing variety and eternal buzzing. On your Key West yacht charter trip, Take a stroll down Duval Street with buskers and frozen margarita machines on every block, slip into some fine art shops featuring local photographs and jewelry, sample a piece of key lime pie, or belly up to the bar at the historic Sloppy Joe’s. Imagine that you might be sitting in the same seat that was graced by Papa Hemingway. And don’t miss the sunset ritual in Mallory Square with its tightrope walkers, cat trainers, acrobats, mimes, mermaids, and muses.

An exit from the mayhem is only a few blocks away where you can wander through quiet neighborhoods with unique conch-style homes nestled in a tropical splendor of flowers and trees. On your Key West yacht charter trip, Rent a bike and pedal the back roads, visit the market in Bahamas Village, take a tour of the Hemingway House, and enjoy a lush backyard brunch at Blue Heaven.

Of course, the natural delights and blissful peace of your Key West yacht charter offers a nice balance to the high energy that you’ll find ashore. Have the crew rev up the waverunners and lead you on a circumnavigation of the island, weaving in and out of the mangroves. Jump in the tender for a few hours of snorkelling or cast off in quest of catching a mahi mahi for tonight’s dinner.

Key West nightlife truly has something for everyone – a blues band at the Green Parrot, singer songwriters at the Hog’s Breath Saloon, a drag queen cabaret at La Te Da, martinis and jazz at Virgilio’s, or dinner under the stars aboard your Florida Keys yacht charter vessel.

Day 5: RETURN TO MIAMI, OR EXTEND?

Your Miami to Key West yacht charter can be end here or if you have a few mores days, sail on to the solitude of the Dry Tortugas.
