Provision in the morning and leave by 2pm. Sail to Miami and take your pick of spots to spend the night: Dinner Key Marina, Bay Side Marina, Miami Beach Marina, Crandon Park Marina, No Name Harbor, or Nixons Harbor.
Depart from the Miami area and sail south down Biscayne Bay. Anchor on the inside of Elliott Key, where you can swim, snorkel, or simply lounge on the beach. Spend the afternoon there, then sail a little further south to spend the night behind Pumpkin Key.
Sail out through Angel Fish Creek into Hawks Channel, at high tide if possible. Entrance and exit can be tricky, but in between is plenty of draft. Sail to Craysfort Reef, and snorkel mid-morning to mid-afternoon. Sail north to Key Largo and pull into Marina Del Mar. Getting hungry? Have dinner at a local restaurant and stretch your legs, then spend the night in the marina.
Get ready for a full day of sailing! Cruise southwest on the outside down to Marathon, enjoying every moment on the water. Stay over at Marathon Marina, the Crown Jewel of the Florida Keys.
Sail out to Sombrero Reef for an early morning snorkel, then sail northeast to Windley Key. Pull into Holiday Isle Marina, remembering not to dock at the transient dock, and get a full nights sleep.
Another full day of sailing awaits you, this time on the outside up to Government Cut and into Miami. Sailing with the Gulf Stream will make for a fast, fun cruise. Choose an overnight spot in one of the many marinas and moorings.
Sail on the outside up to Port Everglades and back to Harbor Towne Marina. Spend the night on the boat, dreaming of your next Floridian adventure.
