What is the ideal route for Biscayne Bay Yacht charters?

Miami– Biscayne Bay-Coconut Grove- Miami

Plan your Yacht sail from Miami and visit the beautiful Biscayne Bay. As this is a lagoon, you might find it difficult to sail in your Yacht. Instead, you can simply take a boat from the Yacht and explore the beautiful interiors of this Bay!

What to see in Biscayne Bay:

The places to visit two places are Elliot Key and Boca Chita.


Elliot Key: Located in the National Park, this place holds its pride in its glassy water and beautiful sandy beach. You will love to see the pineapple farming there. As there is no shack of restaurant in the beach, the smart choice is to have food in your yacht first or at least carry them in your Biscayne Bay charter sailboats. This place is also good for swimming and hiking.


Boca Chita: on the other hand, offers great snorkeling options. There’s a shipwreck in the waters, and corals have formed all over it.  Eels, Lobsters, and other tropical fish love to swim through it.

Biscayne itself is a National Park and it is 95% underwater! Sea turtles, American crocodiles, and alligators, many endangered species, soft corals, sponges, whales, dolphins, are just a few examples of the extensive wildlife you expect to see. Also, there’s an extensive mangrove forest for you to explore.

What to see in Coconut Grove:

Take your boat and sail off to see coconut grove, the greenest part of Miami. The verdant colours of vegetation, along with swaying of the palm trees with the wind, make Coconut Grove a site that must be visited. You can shop, just stroll and explore the area. If you’re a history buff, check out the Peacock Inn and the Barnacle Historic State Park. The former is the first hotel here, established in 1882 and the latter, the first house in the area built in 1891.
