There is another facinating world that exists just beyond its shores - a world best discovered by private yacht.
Miami may be best known for its vibrant cultural diversity, nightlife and fabulous beaches, but that only begins to explore the delights offered by the city. There is another fascinating world that exists just beyond its shores - a world best discovered by private yacht.
Venture just south of the pulsing Miami waterfront and a new world beckons. Through Biscayne Bay, beyond the remains of Stiltsville, the water transforms to a clear turquoise blue and the pace slows to a Caribbean-inspired beat as you approach the island chain of the Keys. Situated at the northernmost point of this chain, Key Largo boasts some of the most fascinating marine sanctuaries and botanical scenery in the state. Known as the dive capital of the world, Key Largo offers plentiful opportunities for scuba diving, snorkeling, sport fishing, eco tours and many on-shore excursions.Get A copy of the brochure!
Excitement is in the air this morning as you greet your yacht and professional crew at the Miami Beach Marina. After settling into your stateroom, relax on the breezy aft deck and enjoy a refreshing lunch as your yacht gets underway to Key Largo and the dive site "The Elbow."
The Gulf Stream passes closer to The Elbow than many other Key Largo reefs, which lends to the water's clear blue hue. The reef here has been a protected sanctuary since 1960 and is part of the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Because the reef starts at five feet, this site can be enjoyed by snorkelers and divers alike. Spend the afternoon swimming among turtles, eels, nurse sharks, rays and reef fish. Venture north of the Key Largo Cut and dive Christ of the Abyss, an 8 ½ ft bronze sculpture standing in 25 feet of water.
Those not interested in snorkeling or diving can paddleboard, kayak or try out some of the yacht's other water toys. A side excursion through the 2.5 miles of mangrove trails can be arranged with a crew member. Unlike other tannin-stained mangroves found throughout the state of Florida, these mangrove trails in Pennekamp are crystal clear and afford remarkable views into the depths when seen from kayak or paddleboard.
Awake early and refreshed today for a hearty breakfast on the aft deck while taking in the scenery of your beautiful anchorage. Today will be spent snorkeling or diving one of Key Largo's most popular wreck-reefs, the "City of Washington". Built in 1877, this 360ft long motor vessel sank in 15 to 25 feet of water on July 10, 1917. While her hull and keel are still visible, the wreck is greatly deteriorated and the shallow depths make her a great spot for snorkeling or night dives. Here, marine life is abundant, with barracuda, morays and nurse sharks that have been hand-fed for many years and have little fear of divers.
After a full day of sun-filled fun, return to your yacht for a refreshing drink as you get underway for the leisurely cruise back to Miami Beach. Arrive at the Miami Beach Marina just before sunset to bid a fond farewell to your yacht and crew.
