Catamaran Sailing Vacations Florida Keys

Florida Keys Itinerary

Keys - one week.

Catamaran Sailing Vacations with crew

Upper Florida Keys - 3 Days

Lower Florida Keys - One Week*

Sailing from Marathon Key you will experience the many pleasures and sites of the Florida Keys. The unspoiled coral reefs of the Lower Keys have many sites where you can tie up to a mooring ball and snorkel or dive. Hawks Channel provides fantastic sailing, as there is protection from the ocean swells but still great wind.

Dry Tortugas - One Week*

Bahamas itinerary, chain in the bahamas.

Across the Gulf Steam from Florida's east coast lies the Bimini Island Chain. These sub tropical low-lying islands are a fantastic destination for a weeklong sail. Bimini offers some of the finest SCUBA diving, snorkeling, fishing and beachcombing anywhere. These "islands in the stream" offer water clarity, which is nothing less than spectacular. You may rent snorkel gear at our office in Ft. Lauderdale if you have not brought your own. For those who are certified divers we recommend renting your SCUBA gear from Underseas Sports in Ft. Lauderdale before you head across the Gulf Stream.

The Bimini Chain is lightly populated with the center of village life located on North Bimini, in Alice Town. There are many small restaurants, shops, and bars, as well as the Hemingway Museum at the complete Angler. Marinas are abundant if you decide not to anchor out. The beaches on North Bimini offer miles of un-crowded fine white sand and snorkeling from the waters edge. Golf Carts and Mopeds are available for rent so you can explore the island. One of the most interesting dive and snorkel sites off of North Bimini is "Bimini Road", which some say is the ruin of the lost city of Atlantis.

South Bimini is primarily residential with only two marinas. The new Bimini Sands Marina is located at the entrance to the harbor and has a Customs and Immigration office so you can clear in there without having to take a taxi and ferry over to North Bimini. The other marina is located at the south end of the island. A new channel has been dredged in Nixon's Harbor that takes you into the marina. Not far from the south end of South Bimini lies the wreck of the "Sappona". This is a great snorkel and dive site.

The only other island in the Bimini's with a marina is on North Cat Cay. This is a private Island with some "high profile" homeowners. For this reason the local authorities limit the accessibility of the island for non-members. You are welcome at the Marina for transient dockage but they prefer for you to stay in the area of the marina where there is a fine dining restaurant a store for provisions, dock bar, and gift shop. It is a truly beautiful setting at the marina and we recommend this for your last night in the Bahamas. Just off the coast of South Cat Cay is a fantastic dive site. "Tuna Alley" has mooring balls and is 50' to 80' with deep caverns and crevasses in the coral.

There are many other Anchorages such as Honeymoon Harbour, Dollar Harbour. Moxom Rocks, and Nixon Harbour. Please call to speak with our knowledgeable staff for more details.

One Week Itinerary to the Bimini Islands

Day three -, day seven -, day eight -.

Obviously there can be a lot of variation on this itinerary, but it shows there is plenty to do in a week charter to the Bimini Island Chain. If you would like further information or would like to plan a different Bahamas trip give us a call and speak with our knowledgeable staff. We can provide you with a cruising guide to the Bahamas Islands as well as charts of the area.

Learn More About Our Catamaran Sailboat!

What's so great about a catamaran? A catamaran denotes a boat with two hulls or compartments that enable the vessel to displace water evenly on both sides. This design allows the catamaran to avoid rocking, as a traditional, single-hulled sailboat does. For folks on vacation--this point is a gold nugget--those that are not accustomed to boats tend to get seasick.

Why the double-hull design is a vacationers best boat friend:

Stable, non-rocking design . Why is this important? Because as the hull heaves so may your stomach.

Plenty of storage space with 2 hulls . And, if the kids fight, we can separate them.

Speed. The catamaran is twice as fast as a traditional sailboat. Save the monohull for the land turtles! (Sea turtles are fast too.)

Light footprint. A Stiletto can maneuver in shallow water due to a broader displacement of water across two lightweight hulls (Crab Island, here we come!)

Built for comfort. You aren't awkwardly lounging on a sloping deck like a monohull sailboat.

Maximized deck space. The catamaran has two opposing benches with cushions, as well as 80 square feet of trampoline for lounging and watching the waves.

Stiletto Catamaran

If you are thinking of chartering just any ol' catamaran, let me tell you why the Stiletto brand makes this boat even groovier:

Built light for speed. Although you may want to relax on your Destin sailing cruise, never forget, this cat has speed in its back pocket. The catamaran tops out at 25 knots (20 mph). In Destin, we can safely cruise at 15 knots with the jib (front sail) raised, and feel the power.

It will never sink . Aeronautic technology is utilized in its honey comb laminate that enables the material itself to float, not relying on the intact body of the vessel. So, no matter what the Florida waters bring, this puppy floats.

catamaran tours florida

Versatility of design. You can beach it; you can trailor it. When was the last time you saw a monohull sailboat pulled up on the beach or roaming down the highway? This boat goes everywhere. But watch out, you might catch catamaran fever thinking of the possibilities of where you could take it!

You are cool by proxy. Riding in our Stiletto catamaran brings you closer to the lastest version of the Stiletto XF, the foiling catamaran that once it reaches 14 knots, raises up and rides on hydrofoils, appearing to hover 2 feet above the water!

Catamaran Sailboat

The "Best Day Ever" Sailboat Cruise, 4-6 Hour Private Charter

At Captain Jambo's, We Know How To "Do" Destin.

Here is a write-up of a much loved itinerary that

may save you from being one of the many people

who ride into the dock thinking, "I wish I had

longer on the sailboat!"

The sails are set due south from Captain Jambo's

peaceful, scenic bay dock. With tummies full of

butterflies and expectations, we sail through the

glowing, emerald waves, under the Destin Bridge,

through the Destin Pass, and East and West Jetties to the magnificent Gulf of Mexico. Here, we look for bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, and other marine life. We sail along Florida's beaches, marveling at the beauty of the water and sugar white beach. Next, the sails are set north, back through the Destin Pass to the world famous, Crab Island. This shallow, clear sandbar is a hot spot for Destin boaters' fun in the sun. Catch a margarita or some fish tacos at the festive Waterworld Restaurant and Bar. Play with the kids on the giant, inflatable waterpark. Just remember, no babysitting your pontoon boat, come and go as you please to check out the festivities, your captain will be happy to hold the anchor! After you've had your fill of Crab lsland, we sail to the nearby grassbeds for snorkeling. Crabs and fish abound here. You might even spot a majestic seahorse! Take our underwater Gro Pro camera to document your adventure! Next door is one of the few areas to find seashells in Destin, so take some souvenirs home from your hunt. When your pockets are full, we will set sails again for a relaxing sail through the calm waters of the Choctawhatchee Bay, watching the explosive

colors of the sunset on this

incredible sailing day.

Finally, we head back to

the dock from where our

adventure began. Now,

the sailboat sails away,

leaving you sun-kissed

10 Things to Love About Mount Dora, Florida

M ount Dora, a delightful central Florida town just an hour from Orlando, is often called the “New England town of the South.” Its captivating lakeside setting, rich history, frequent celebrations, numerous festivals, scenic lakes, and exceptional boutique and antique stores offer an extraordinary experience.

Revel in enchanting sunsets, savor delectable meals, and immerse yourself in Mount Dora’s wonders as you discover ten reasons why it is truly remarkable.

1. Adventurous Segway Tours

Experience a remarkable outdoor adventure with CatBoat Adventure Tours in Mount Dora. Choose from their private powered catamarans or join the guided Segway tour. This tour goes beyond the popular downtown area, taking you through parks, natural areas, and residential neighborhoods.

A knowledgeable guide will share fascinating stories about Mount Dora’s history while the town’s holiday decorations create a magical atmosphere. The tour lasts approximately two hours, with stops for stretching and photo opportunities. Do not worry if you are a Segway newbie; they will teach you everything you need to know. You can see two women aged 50+ doing it; you can, too.

Glide through the enchanting canopies of live oaks, starting from the Mount Dora Boating Center & Marina at beautiful Lake Dora. Helmets are required and will be provided. Don’t miss out on this professional and exhilarating experience!

2. Feast on a Lovely Charcuterie Platter

Pisces Rising is renowned for its exceptional live entertainment, complemented by a captivating patio and an exquisite bar. Opting for the latter, my companion Sara and I started our dining experience with one of the remarkable Pisces Rising charcuterie platters. It held delectable meats, tangy pickles, gourmet cheeses, and tantalizing accompaniments (including caper berries!). Our taste buds celebrated!

At the bar, due to a wait time of 90 to 120 minutes for a table, I savored the succulent black grouper with a perfect lemon beurre blanc sauce. The fish was served over Himalayan red rice—a delightful special-of-the-day. You’re sure to leave here full and happy.

3. Visit An Uplifting Local Store

On my travels, I have the pleasure of encountering remarkable individuals, including those who dedicate themselves to uplifting others without realizing their own brilliance. Allow me to present Lynn, the proprietor of Under the Cherry Blossoms —an exquisite emporium nestled in Downtown Mount Dora, showcasing arts, crafts, and various facilities crafted from salvaged or recycled materials.

Lynn fervently supports the empowerment of women and talented individuals who showcase their skills through these remarkable creations. Under the Cherry Blossoms epitomizes the essence of “buy and shop local.”

4. Stay in a 100+ Year Old Victorian Mansion

Discover the exquisite charm of Mount Dora’s Heron Cay B&B Inn . Experience the timeless elegance of this 100+-year-old Queen Anne Victorian mansion, adorned with priceless antiques and captivating Florida Highwaymen paintings.

Surge in the serene outdoor swimming pool amidst a picturesque array of vibrant flowers and plants on the grounds. Delight in a complimentary four-course gourmet breakfast while reveling in the grandeur of the opulent surroundings.

Choose from a selection of meticulously themed and decorated accommodations available on the first, second, or third floor. The Heavenly Suite, a lavish sanctuary boasting an expansive parlor sitting area (800 square feet) and a spacious bathroom, is yours to relish.

Immerse yourself in relaxation with the oversized jacuzzi tub and revel in the cozy ambiance of the gas fireplace. A separate shower area, ample closet space, a mini-fridge, and thoughtful amenities ensure an unforgettable stay.

Just a few blocks from downtown Mount Dora, Heron Cay B&B offers convenient access to the vibrant city center.

5. Enjoy Mount Dora’s Gorgeous Parks

Mount Dora boasts several excellent city parks, each offering a unique natural ambiance. Evans Park and Gilbert Park are particularly beloved by locals and visitors. However, my personal favorite is Palm Island Park. It boasts rugged nature trails and a sophisticated raised platform overlooking the water.

This park is a haven for avid fishermen, as the fish are always biting! And remember to keep an eye out for the diverse bird species and fascinating alligators!

6. Eat Authentic German Fare

Mount Dora’s Bavarian Haus is a well-established downtown staple, boasting indoor and outdoor seating. With its live Bavarian music and authentic scratch-made German cuisine, the food and atmosphere never fail to impress.

Begin your dining experience with the yummy Kartoffelpuffer mit Apfelmus, a harmonious blend of potato pancakes and applesauce. My favorite entree is the Jägerschnitzel, succulent sliced pork adorned with a luxurious mushroom sauce. Or, you can savor the hand-breaded Schnitzel, available in pork or chicken, served with two sides of your choosing.

I recommend indulging in the house Spätzle, German egg noodles, and Rotkohl, a sweet red cabbage dish. Like many esteemed eateries in Mount Dora, Bavarian Haus observes Monday as their customary day of closure.

7. Dive Into Boutique Shopping

Mount Dora is an exceptional road trip or getaway destination, filled with captivating options for shopping, dining, and people-watching. Downtown Mount Dora showcases a charming selection of locally-owned shops, boutiques, and top-notch restaurants.

Explore the exquisite offerings at Papilio, Em’z on Fifth, Walk in the Woods, and Becker’s Best Shoes for fashionable attire and accessories. Pamper your beloved pets with delightful treats from Piglet’s Pantry Dog Bakery and indulge in luxurious bath products from Naples Soap Company . Elevate your home with gourmet products and kitchenware from Julianne’s Coastal Cottage .

Additionally, Mount Dora is home to great antique stores.

8. Indulge in Amazing Desserts

Mount Dora offers an exceptional culinary experience with its diverse menu selection. Take the opportunity to indulge in delightful desserts at  Olive Branch Grille . This Mediterranean and Italian eatery boasts extensive handmade creations, from tiramisu to chocolate lava cake, gelato to creme brûlée, and the classic NY cheesecake.

The Limoncello Mascarpone Cake I tried was divine! Its name perfectly captures its rich flavor, yet it remains light and fluffy with a sweet lemon sponge cake. Simply delicious!

For a quick and convenient stop, visit  Allyson A. Bake Shop , which specializes in exquisite baked goods like cupcakes, muffins, cookies, and scones. They also offer an array of tasty coffee and tea beverages, perfect for a fabulous breakfast, event, or indulgence.

9. Celebrate the Holidays Big Time

When I first moved to Florida, a local tour company whisked me and 66 passengers, transporting us three hours away to witness the awe-inspiring Christmas celebration in Mount Dora. I was left speechless! It even “snowed” on one of the busy streets.

The entire town extended a warm welcome, staying open late to host this enchanting festivity, primarily centered in the park back then. Today, Mount Dora has become a trendy Christmas destination, where downtown Donnelly Park dazzles with 2 million twinkling lights.

The festivities have expanded again, now encompassing Sunset Park (home to a magnificent tree) and the marina. It is a breathtaking exhibition of Christmas enchantment. I recommend venturing to Mount Dora if you share the same holiday enthusiasm.

The charming Mount Dora Lighthouse, which has been at Grantham Point since 1988, offers picturesque views of Lake Dora and delightful photo opportunities. While it primarily serves as a decorative structure, it also boasts a functional light for guiding nocturnal boat traffic.

My hotel accommodations and some meals were provided by Visit Florida. My Segway tour was hosted by the company. As always, opinions and reviews are 100% mine and unbiased.
