Your 7-Day Cruising Itinerary for a Perfect Trip on the Florida Keys

Florida keys

Whether you need relaxation or adventure, we have chosen the perfect seven-day itinerary that has it all

The southernmost point of the United States with a blissfully tropical climate and kaleidoscopic sunsets, Florida is known as the ‘Sunshine State’ for good reason. Legendary beaches, magnificent coral reefs and lush jungle make it the perfect destination for your luxury yacht charter, and many celebrities and US presidents—current and former— vacation here year after year.

In the very south of the state, the worldrenowned Florida Keys form a necklace of tropical islands that curve across the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico towards Cuba. Starting in the glamorous metropolis of Miami Beach, the capital of beach chic, you can soak up the glitz, indulge in the finest luxury spas and dine in some of the world’s top restaurants before making your way through the Keys to Key West, the only Caribbean island in the US.

Famed for their sunsets and signature key lime pies, each of the islands on the way offers an eco-paradise of emeraldgreen lagoons, subtropical everglades, mangrove-lined shores and seas teeming with life. Florida boasts the only living coral barrier reef in North America, attracting elite clientele from all over the world for its spectacular diving and fishing. During your charter you will have the chance to dive through shipwrecks and coral formations, swim with dolphins and fish for tarpon and sharks for your dinner. Whether you seek relaxation or adventure, Florida offers superb cruising territory and by the time you reach Key West you will see why Ernest Hemingway found it so hard to leave.
