Luxury Yacht Charter Florida Keys

Yacht Charter in Florida Keys

With waters as clear as crystal and some of the most exotic marine parks in the world, it is no wonder that the Florida Keys have become one of the premier yacht charter destinations on the globe. Situated at the southern most point of continental America, the Keys are an archipelago of islands which are scattered in a striking arc-shape south-west of Miami. The islands, many of which are uninhabited, lie along the Florida Straits dividing the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Gulf of Mexico to the west. Here you will find excellent sailing, diverse marine life and some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world.
