When I sail out of Ft. Lauderdale to the Florida Keys there  several routes. You must remember that 9 out of 10 times you adjust your trip to the weather and sea conditions, you tend to choose your destination by the way the wind blows. Routes are also chosen according to what kind of trip people are looking for….

If marinas and nightlife is what you are looking for we can make our first stop in Miami. There you have the options of going to South Beach, Bayside or anchoring out in No Name Harbor in Key Biscayne.

You do have several options available to you when planning your trip.

You can sail around a trip to the Florida Keys,  or you can arrange for a one way trip! For instance, you could fly into Fort Lauderdale, sail to Key West or Marathon and rent a car to drive back to the airport!

By doing your trip like this, you get to see a lot more harbors and spend more time on underway activities without having to retrace your steps!

Sailing time to Key West is around 30 hours, or 60 hours round trip. This option would allow you to explore the entire chain of islands at a more pleasure pace. 

If the Ocean is rough, we can always take a scenic tour down the intercoastal  waterway , or we can sail offshore to get in some good fishing , relaxing sailing and a beautiful sunset over the Miami skyline.

As we continue down Biscayne Bay, we cruse by Stiltsville into the bay where sailing is always perfect! Due to the shallow water and protected bay it makes for some of the best sailing in Florida.

On the south end of the bay there are many Islands that can only be approached by boat. Among them are many mangrove creeks that are great for exploring with the tender, fishing and bird watching. Pennycamp park just south of Biscayne bay has some of the most beautiful snorkeling reefs in the US.

As we continue south thru the Keys adventures and explorations abound. You have 3 ways to see the Keys, the open ocean, Hawk Channel or the Florida bay, this guarantees we can always avoid rough seas and you can have cell service to stay in contact.
