Cruise Miami to Fort Lauderdale onboard a yacht

Miami to Fort Lauderdale is probably a drive you have done several times. While occasionally you can speed down the highway with little interruptions, it’s increasingly common to have to bank on longer travel times. Traffic, unforeseen accidents, or bad weather can all contribute to a frustrating car ride. That is why we suggest to book a yacht in Miami and cruise to Fort Lauderdale. This way, you get to experience the coastline like never before and enjoy the trip as well as the destination.

How long does it take to cruise from Miami to Fort Lauderdale?

The drive can be around 42 minutes through the crowded streets of Miami, in comparison the cruise is slightly longer but more picturesque. Depending on the weather on the given day, and the vessel you have chosen, it may take anywhere between 1 to 2 hours. This of course also depends if you wish to stop along the way, want to cruise calmy, or speed ahead. Have a look at our large array of vessels to see what yacht would suit your needs best.

 

 

 

 

 

Why would you take the boat from Miami to Fort Lauderdale?

The coast of Florida is absolutely stunning, and seeing it from onboard a luxury yacht is the best vantage point. With your whole family, you can make the trip from Miami to Fort Lauderdale a whole day adventure. Take your time to enjoy the journey rather than rushing towards the destination. A boat cruise allows your family to soak up the sun rays, spot for marine animals, and watch the iconic Miami skyline rush past.

 

 

 

 

 

Can you swim from the Yacht in Miami?

The water around Miami is typically a warm and comfortable temperature the whole year. This makes Miami a favorite destination for swimmers and beach goers alike. When you are on a private vessel, the Atlantic Ocean is available at your leisure. Organize a few spots to have a break and hop into the refreshing water. This is part of the benefit of chartering your own private yacht. You can dictate how long you spend in each location and what you want your day to look like.

 

 

 

 

 

What yacht is best suited to cruise from Miami to Fort Lauderdale?

There is a large selection of yachts that Instyle Yachts can offer with crew for your day or multi day trip. Depending on how many people you wish to bring, or how long you would like to cruise, the Instyle Yachts team will be able to best recommend a vessel to fit your needs. The Neptunus 58′ is one of our prized yachts that features several overnight double staterooms, ensuite bathrooms, ample entertaining space, and a surround sound system. This way you and the whole family can relax, eat food from the fully equipped galley, and lounge on the several deck spaces on the front and back of the yacht. Boat rental with crew is the new, and luxury way to cruise Florida’s coast.

Photo Opportunities in Miami onboard

Book a yacht in Miami to sight see, to explore, and of course, to document the process. If you do not have a picture of the experience, did it even happen? Luckily, in terms of boating and yachting, they are naturally some of the most photogenic activities you can participate in. Here are our top tips on the best photo opportunities when onboard a private yacht. Plus, a little tip on how to take the best selfie.

1. Pair your selfie with an iconic background

 

 

 

 

There is nothing that says luxury and opulence as taking a photo in front of a famous monument while on the privacy of your own yacht. Instyle Yachts provide a large variety of yachts from their fleet that can take you on any sort of adventure. For a cruise around the famous Miami sights such as the Flagler Monument, Star and Hibiscus Island, or simply the Miami skyline why not check out one of our Sundancer series. These nimble and elegant vessels can bring you to a first-class view of any of these iconic tourist destinations. Up your selfie game by showcasing the water, yacht, and historic monument!

2. Employ the natural beauty of the sea

 

 

 

 

The colors of the sea and sky are particularly beautiful in a picture. The water surrounding Florida coastline is a piercing blue and a perfect backdrop to an iconic picture. Get someone to snap a shot of you jumping from the boat, swimming in the azure water, or lounging by the back deck. The stunning beauty of the Atlantic Ocean will elevate any photo you snap onboard the vessel.

3. Wait for Golden Hour

 

 

 

 

Golden hour, or the hour or so before sunset, is a photographer’s favorite time of the day. The sun’s colors shift from stark white to gentle hues of orange and yellow. It gives the subjects of the photo a sun kissed look and an evened-out skin tone. Get your phone or camera ready to capture the beauty of this time of day. You can either choose to shoot with the sun where the amber rays kiss your face or against the sun, to create a powerful contrast and showcase the colors. On our famous sunset cruises, these pictures can be particularly effective. The sunsets in Florida are stunning, and seeing the sun set while on the water is a magical experience.

4. Jump in for some Reef footage

 

 

 

 

Miami is one of the biggest cities in the world that is located so near a thriving reef system. The coral reefs around the coast of Florida are the home to a large array of stunning underwater creatures. If you have a mask and snorkel as well as an adventurous spirit, you can try your lucky at the ultimate selfie with a turtle. Reef fish, dolphins, sea birds, and colorful coral are all other possible subjects. We do encourage you to be respectful of our oceans and leave behind nothing but bubbles. Touching any of the marine life (whether alive or apparently dead, such as rocks), can be damaging to the environment.

If you want to focus on your photography, there is absolutely no reason to not book a boat rental with crew. Instyle Yachts will take care of the whole experience, leaving you to become a photographer for the day. Capture the beauty of the coast, and we would love to see the photos you come up with! Tag us in your social media to share your experience with us.

Fun in the Sun – Top tips on How to Stay Sun Safe on a Yacht

There is nothing better than spending the warm sunny days onboard a yacht. However, in recent years we have learned the potentially negative effects of sun exposure. In this post we will cover the top ways on how to stay safe in the sun. All the while, having fun! When you book a yacht in Miami with us, we take care of every little detail. This way, you can just sit back and relax to enjoy your trip. On the other hand, sun safety tips are handy in everyday life. Here are our top five tips.

Sunscreen is your best friend

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunscreen is the primary line of defense against premature aging and potentially harmful UV radiation. A full spectrum high SPF (30 or more) is the ideal sunscreen to use when going on a boat. Since there is a chance of getting splashed or jumping in the water, we would recommend investing in a physically protective sunscreen. In comparison to chemically based sunscreen, physical blocking sunscreens rely on ingredients such as zinc to completely stop the UV radiation from reaching your skin. Chemical sunscreen on the other hand, simply changes the outcome of the impact on your skin. While chemical sunscreen has been the norm for the past few years, it has been linked with coral reef degradation. For this reason, we would encourage you to seek out reef safe sunscreen created from non nano particles that protect you and our ocean.

Hats and Physical barriers

 

 

 

 

 

 

While sunscreen is our go to solution to protecting ourselves from the sun, physical barriers are even better. Grab a hat, cap, and a light linen long sleeve shirt to bring on board with you. Once you’re done swimming, simply throw the cover over yourself for a stylish yet protective layer. Even the best sunscreen will not be as efficient in keeping our solar rays as a shirt or hat. Be mindful that when you are on the boat, the sun’s rays reflect from the surface of the water. This means, even with a hat, you must combine your sun protection methods with sunscreen.

Polarized Sunglasses

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not only are polarized sunglasses the best option for eye protection from the sharp glare but they also help you see better on the water. Polarized sunglasses eliminate some of the reflected light that shines from the surface of the sea. This means you will be able to look through the water better and spot coral reefs, turtles, and other marine animals easier! A good pair of polarized sunglasses, and even a back up, are a must have when on a yacht.

Stay Hydrated

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lastly, but certainly not least, to stay sun safe onboard a boat rental with crew, is to drink enough water. Keep a water bottle or some electrolyte drinks nearby. Swimming and spending the day in the sun will typically exhaust anyone who is not used to it. Drinking water will avoid dehydration, headaches, and will keep your body functioning ideally. If you have any additional questions about sun safety, do not hesitate to contact the friendly Instyle Yachts team.

Sunset charter and Miami River dinner

There is nothing quite as magical as watching the sunset onboard a boat. Book a yacht in Miami to have the perfect evening with your loved one or family. With Instyle Yachts, we can organize the dream sunset charter and dinner on the Miami River. Our fleet has a wide selection of yachts to suit your needs.

Why choose a sunset charter?

 

 

 

 

 

 

While cruising the coast or river of Miami is beautiful any time of day, there is something perfect about golden hour. From the time when the sun starts dipping down the colors in the surroundings transform. The Miami River and ocean absorbs the sunlight to paint a beautiful palette of colors. If you have ever been on the sea, you will know how stunning sunsets can be on a boat. A sunset charter with Instyle Yachts combines this magnificent backdrop with a quaint and romantic dinner setting.

What can you see on the Miami River?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Miami River provides a perfect combination of nature and metropolis. Onboard your luxury yacht you can cruise from the Port of Miami through the canals and into the Miami River. The city of Miami reaches high from the banks of the river and gives you a unique perspective on the buildings. If you are a fan of architecture, or prefer to stay away from crowds, then sightseeing the city by boat is for you. You can combine seeing the wildlife in the Miami River with stopping at some of the iconic Miami points of interest.

What iconic spots can you see from a boat?

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you re interested in seeing some of Miami’s famous points of interest, then consider combining them with your evening cruise. The Flagler monument, Hibiscus and Star Islands are just some of the spots you can cruise past. Once the sun sets, Miami puts o an impressive show with it’s twinkling lights and tall skyline.

What yacht is best suited for cruising?

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are looking for a sunset and dinner cruise in Miami, you can opt for one of the smaller yachts. These yachts are more manoeuvrable yet still provide ample space for seating and dining. The Sundancer series are a combination of luxury and sport to meet the needs of any couple or small family.

Children of all ages are welcome onboard a yacht. While they are under the age of 12, they are required to always wear a life vest. This ensures their safety. It is also important to keep a close eye on your children as there is a small chance they can fall overboard. Children may also be prone to sea sickness, so consider investing in sea sickness medication prior to boarding the vessel. While there are some extra safety considerations with children, they will certainly enjoy their day on the sea.

Must haves for children on a yacht

If you are bringing your children on the yacht, please make sure to bring the following.

  • Sunscreen
  • Hat and body protection from the sun
  • Ample water and other fluids
  • Sunglasses
  • Towels

What animals can they see on the yacht?

 

 

 

 

 

 

A favourite past time of many children includes animal spotting. The coastline of Florida is the home of many creatures including plenty you and your family can spot from the yacht. Dolphins frequently ply in the waves, a large variety of bird species sit on the coast or glide through the sky, and the reefs are a hub of marine biodiversity. If your children are adventurous and confident swimmers, they may enjoy diving beneath the waves to explore the underwater world.

Can your children snorkel?

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you choose to take your yacht charter to visit one of Florida’s reefs, your children will have the chance to jump in and see Nemo’s home. The water is warm through out the year and visibility is good. This means their snorkelling experience will be pleasant experience no matter what time of the year you go. If they are prone to being cold, consider bringing a wetsuit for additional warmth.

Family of all ages enjoy the time on the yacht

An adventure on the sea is truly an experience that the whole family can enjoy.

What happens before a charter?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The preparation starts long before a yacht charter hits the water, and the adventure commences. A captain begins any journey with careful inspection of the vessel. They need to make sure that all the boat safety measures are up to date, the logbook has been signed off, and the conditions are good for sailing. While Florida has warm air and water temperatures throughout the year, the hurricanes, winds, and waves may interfere. For a successful and comfortable boat ride, a captain is looking for low winds and clear skies. Captains will be frequently checking on the weather across a variety of apps to ensure they have the most accurate predictions before they set sail. Luckily, the luxury yachts at Instyle Yachts are all cruising yachts and do not have to depend on the wind. After the captain has checked all the safety measures, the wind conditions, and the dream itinerary, they will step onboard.

What happens after the charter?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you dock back into the port, your day may have finished. You can go home and relax and review the photos you have captured on your beautiful day. For the crew and captain, the work has almost just begun. Along with cleaning the vessel from the day’s activities, the engine and equipment all need to be flushed with fresh water. Salt water is extremely corrosive and can significantly decrease the life span of most things. That is why fresh water is employed to rejuvenate the vessels to keep them in good condition. The equipment is checked again, dried, secured and stored. The logbook is finished, and any fuel, breakages, and incidents are reported and fixed. With yacht rental in Miami, these are things you do not need to worry about. Instead, your job on the day is to enjoy the trip and stunning country we live in. Book now with Miami Instyle Yachts.

Children and yachts are a fantastic combination. While you need to be a bit more careful with supervision, flotation devices, and sun safety, bringing your family onboard is a rewarding experience. Along with cruising the azure water and bird spotting, your kids can have an adventure of a lifestyle. Here are a couple of the most child friendly activities on board a private vessel.

– Snorkeling with flotation devices

– Water tubing or jet skiing

– Exploring coast lines

– Sight-seeing the famous Miami sites

What are some ways you can get your children involved on a yacht?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The best way to turn your yacht adventure into a family experience, is to have your children join in the planning process. While you will have your final say, here are our top tips for entertaining your children on board one of our yachts.

– Let them be part of the planning process. Show them marine maps and coastal areas so they can partake in choosing the itinerary. See what destinations they want to stop at and what they would like to see. With a physical or digital map, they can also plot their desired route and see if they can follow it in real time.

– Get the children involved in the sailing process. Have them learn about the importance of wind, waves, currents, and other weather conditions. This way they can not only learn about the world around them, but also be a helpful addition in assessing the anchorage and driving conditions.

– Buy a wildlife spotting book. This way they will stay occupied on board by trying to see and identify the various marine animals you come across. Whether it is spotting sea birds that are flying overhead or identifying the species of dolphin or turtle poking their head out of the blue water.

– Plan plenty of water-based activities including swimming, snorkeling, or if they are over the age of 12, scuba diving. Water based activities will tire them out, provide them with a healthy outpour of energy, and tire them out.

– Invest in a waterproof camera. Currently, sport action cameras and other digital cameras that can go underwater are relatively reasonably priced. Investing in one of those will give your children hours of entertainment when they jump into the water. See them zoom around the coral reef and try to snap pictures of the fish.

– Bring board games and books just in case. If the weather turns a little cloudy or they get a little sun kissed, some quiet shady games are a great option. Board games, card games, and books are a fantastic way to spend the time while relaxing on board a boat.
