While many of us can’t wait to finally take that next vacation, we may not be ready to travel too far (or leave the country). Fortunately, sparkling waters and sunny skies await in the Florida Keys. The best way to enjoy these islands that extend more than 100 miles is on a private yacht charter. This is a yacht charter vacation that features luxury, relaxation, and tropical fun in the sun.

The Florida Keys are the only living coral barrier reef in the United States, making it a fabulous destination for snorkeling and scuba diving. The islands are also known for great bonefishing and world-class sportfishing. There are a number of ways to plan your Florida Keys yacht charter vacation, and we have mapped out several itineraries to help guide you through the planning process. Regardless of which islands you visit or how long you linger, we recommend not to miss out on the “Last Resort”—historic Key West.

Key West is at the southern tip of the Keys. Take in the gingerbread-trimmed “Conch Houses” while enjoying the entertainment provided by the musicians, performers, and artists in the streets. Visit Ernest Hemingway’s home and then partake in a beverage at the bar that Hemingway supposedly helped to name—Sloppy Joe’s. Wander through the shops and museums on Duval Street, and don’t forget to check out the daily impromptu festival celebrating the daily sunset in Mallory Square. The fun starts around 4 pm each day!
