Miami Yacht Charter for Fabulous Romantic Getaways

Posted by


Miami and the surrounding areas are popular with tourists for all kinds of reasons; fantastic food, stunning scenery, world-class dining and of course, some of the best sailing, water sports and fishing in the world. But not everyone is looking for action on a trip to Miami. Some want to take things slow and enjoy a little relaxation and romance. And that’s where Miami yacht charter for romantic getaways comes in.

Romance, South Florida Style

Many would say that Miami and South Florida already offer three very important elements of a great romantic getaway courtesy of Mother Nature; bright sun, stunning seas and miles of golden sands. It’s hard to disagree with that, but the Miami area has a lot more to offer to romance seekers than a great day at the beach, especially if you take advantage of Miami yacht charter. Here’s a look at some of them:

Exploring Miami Beach

Miami Beach has always been considered a glamorous, mythical place where some of the most beautiful people in the world head out to play. Considered the ‘nightclub capital of the world’ if you enjoy a night of dancing with your significant other, you are certainly in for a treat. And the number of amazing restaurants that line the streets is almost unbelievable.

Miami Beach is also great for quieter dates. Simply strolling through the stunning Art Deco district or heading to a quiet corner of one of the beautiful beaches offers a simpler form of romance that many will truly appreciate.

Most of the best sites in Miami Beach can be taken in from the water – and stunning sites they are too from that vantage – and there are several marinas where your private yacht charter can stop off for a while to allow you to wander around this magical, vibrant and endlessly surprising area to your heart’s content.

Beautiful Bimini

If your idea of the ideal romantic getaway is simply spending some quiet, laid back time with your partner in beautiful surroundings with easy access to fabulous food and delicious drinks then a trip to Bimini – which is around two hours from Miami by sea in a luxury Miami yacht rental – is a must.

Author, humorist and local Miami legend Dave Barry once wrote of Bimini; “Bimini is wonderful. The most wonderful thing about it is that, because of the prevailing winds, currents, tides, rum supply, etc., Bimini is located smack-dab in the center of what scientists believe to be the world’s most powerful Lethargy Zone. It is extremely difficult to remain tense there. The moment you arrive, lethargy waves start washing over you, seeping into your body, turning your skeletal system into taffy.”

As very colorful as Mr. Barry’s words are, he’s absolutely right. Once you hit the island your cares seem to float away. One could be more than content simply sitting on the beach with a bucket of beers and some fabulous local conch for hours, and if the love of your life is there too how much better could it get?

For the more adventurous a trip to the Fountain of Youth – yes, that one, the one Ponce de Leon discovered and waxed lyrical about – is located on the south of the island – and what better place to declare your undying love for your significant other than a tropical paradise that it’s claimed can grant you eternal youth?

Private Dinner Cruising

Have less time to spend on a romantic getaway but want to do something really special with what time you do have? Then a private dinner cruise is the perfect choice.

A private dinner cruise on a Miami yacht rental is not a matter of simply stepping onto a boat and eating a preprepared meal and drinking a few bottles of generic wine. Instead it’s a chance to enjoy a fully catered five-star meal in the most luxurious of surroundings while taking in some of the most amazing sites to be found in around Miami. You can be the stars of your own romantic movie for the evening and enjoy a truly memorable time together, whatever the occasion.

For Active Daters

If action and adventure are more your dating style, then a Miami yacht charter is also the perfect choice for you. From fun with ‘water toys’ like jet skis, tubes and water skis to a day spent chasing down some off the most challenging to catch fish to be found in the water anywhere you can pursue the exciting, active date you prefer and best of all? You can still end the day on the water with a fabulous romantic dinner under the stars!

The Unique Magic of the British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands are made up of the larger islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke, along with over fifty other smaller islands and cays. Only a handful of these islands – around fifteen – are inhabited but for those with access to a yacht many of the islands that are not homes for humans are just as easy to explore and offer unique sites and experiences that go beyond the usual.

This means that a trip to the British Virgin Islands offers it all; lively restaurants, shops and attractions, abundant history, beautiful scenery and the chance to explore worlds you may never have even imagined existed.

Here is a brief look at just some of the delights awaiting you with BVI yacht charters

Virgin Gorda Island yacht charters

The ‘fat virgin’ offers all of the kinds of enticements the name subtly suggests. This island is home to luxury resorts, restaurants and extravagant shopping but also to some of the most historic and fascinating sights in the BVI chain.

Take a trip to ‘The Baths’, with its natural caves, grottos and saltwater baths and you can experience what is considered to be a must do on any trip. Or moor up and take a hike up to the summit of the stunning Gorda Peak to enjoy stunning and panoramic views of the miles of stunning vistas below.

There are also sandy beaches and quiet coves to explore along with the ruins of copper mines, forts and even former pirate’s haunts!

Anegada Island

Anegada Island is the BVI’s only coral island, an unspoiled piece of paradise that is home to some of the most stunning wildlife in the Caribbean, from flocks of flamingos to colorful fish of all kinds who flock around the unofficial ‘kings’ of the island, the Anegada Lobster.

The island, with its unusual pink conch shell mountains is a magnet for divers, as it is from here one can dive down and explore more than 300 wrecks, ranging from tiny long doomed fishing boats to British and Spanish galleons and American privateers.

Jost Van Dyke yacht charters

At just four miles long and three miles wide Jost Van Dyke is a tiny island, but an awful lot of fun, food and adventure is packed into this rather small space. For foodies the island offers the chance to experience a wide variety of local cuisine at its best. For wildlife fans there is the chance to sit at the end of an idyllic pier and watch the dolphins jump past. And for party fans? The yacht galas thrown in Jost Van Dyke harbor are legendary, especially at New Year’s.

Island Hopping

Remember all those little uninhabited islands we mentioned? A BVI yacht charter gives the opportunity to hop around them and enjoy some truly special experiences. From enjoying a luxury spa treatment on Peter’s Island, to exploring the pirate filled history of Scrub Island to indulging fishing, watersports and scuba diving in the crystal-clear waters off Cooper Island there really is something for everyone, and with the freedom a private yacht charter BVI offers you can explore it all your way, at your own pace. 


Bahamas Yacht Charters – Your Ticket to Paradise

Posted by

As exotic as they sound, and as exotic as they are, the islands of the Bahamas are actually just 70 miles away from the South Florida coast. And as many have discovered before you, Bahamas yacht charters, whether you begin your trip in Miami or pick up a boat once in the Bahamas, offer the chance to enjoy a slice of truly tropical paradise living that’s far closer to home than you might think.

About the Beautiful Bahamas 

The Bahamas archipelago is made up of 700 individual islands that boast over 2,000 rocks and cays as well as the clearest water on Earth. The food is delicious, the weather is wonderful, the beaches are pristine and there are unique sights to be seen in the Bahamas that you simply won’t find anywhere else in the world. And all of this can be yours when you rent a charter boat from Miami to the Bahamas. Here’s a look at just some of the places you can go – and the things you can do – with a private yacht charter at your disposal.

Bountiful Beaches

The white gold sands of the beaches of the Bahamas are legendary, and there really is a coastline destination to suit every beach going taste. From the iconic Three Sisters Beach on Great Exuma, home to the Three Sisters Rocks, the subject of great romantic legend, to the Snow Bay Beach on San Salvador, which gets its name from the fact that the sand is as fine a freshly fallen snow to the Pirates Well Beach on Mayaguana, which is teeming with marine life of all kinds, there really is something for everyone.

Water Sports

As you might expect from a destination that can boast thousands of square miles of navigable waters, there is always something to do and something new to try when it comes to water sports in the Bahamas. Whether it’s kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing, kiteboarding, snorkeling, parasailing, or even swimming with wild dolphins, you’ll find it in The Bahamas and if you take advantage of many Bahamas Yacht Charters you’ll find that your rental already comes complete with many of the water toys you’ll need for an exciting day on the waves, you just have to choose the ideal spot.

Delightful Dining

After a long day at the beach, or out on the water exploring, anyone is bound to be hungry. The food in the Bahamas is for some an attraction in itself, as it offers some of the best, but most varied, cuisine choices in the world.

Seafood is, as you might expect, particularly good, as it is hard to beat the fresh, vibrant taste of fish and shellfish that has just been caught. But it’s not the only choice. The spicy, exotic tastes of the Caribbean can be found everywhere, in everything from salads to barbecued meats and roasted vegetables. And you’ll even find that many of the best restaurants in the Bahamas will allow you to sail your boat right up to their dockside dining areas.

The Bahamas are a fisherman’s paradise. Eager fly fishermen can stalk the flats of the Abacos, Exumas, Andros, Acklins, Bimini, Cat Island, Eleuthera and Long Island for bonefish, a species as wary as they are fast.

Those with a penchant for adventure as well as great fishing can head out into deep waters to hunt – and it really can be a hunt – mighty pelagic fish like the marlin and the kingfish. Or, for a quieter day’s fishing one can choose to set up at the end of a pier and wait for the jacks and snapper to bite.

Unique Experiences

Have you ever been swimming with pigs? The friendly wild pigs of Exuma love to welcome tourists to splash around with them for a while. For those who are a little braver over in Nassau you can snorkel with sharks, certainly an experience you’ll never forget.

A trip to the Bahamas also offers you the chance to tag green turtles in Cat Island to help ensure that these beautiful creatures can survive and thrive, to feed stingrays with your toes in the Abaco Islands and to pet baby sharks in their nurseries in South Bimini. And these are just a few of the unique, once in a lifetime experiences available to you. Ask a local and they will be able to recommend many more. 

Whatever your idea of a vacation in paradise, Bahamas yacht charters can make your dreams a reality, and they can do with ease and for far less than you might imagine!
