Catamaran Sailing Lesson or Boat Rental in Biscayne Bay

Discover the natural beauty of Biscayne Bay while gliding through the water on this Miami catamaran experience. Enjoy the view of Miami’s sun-splashed skyline, plus Fisher Island, Miami Beach, the Port of Miami's cruise ship and cargo districts and much more. Check out the high-rise hotels and condos plus the spectacular multi-million-dollar ocean front homes that line Miami Beach. And don’t forget to look down into the crystal clear water for the exotic marine life, like manatees, dolphins, manta rays and more.

Biscayne Bay is typically protected from the weather, making sailing here a fun and easy experience for sailors of all skill levels. Plus, south Florida’s ample sunshine allows for year-round sailing. Wetsuits aren’t necessary, just be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen. 

This sailing adventure begins at Key Biscayne, just south of Miami Beach. If renting, there will be a quick briefing on how to operate the Hobie Cat catamaran before heading out to explore the bay. If learning how to sail, there are two options to choose from — a 1- or 4-hour lesson with a professional sailing instructor.

On the 1-hour lesson, learn the basics of sailing and how to navigate the sailboat. With the 4-hour sailing lesson, spend the first hour learning the fundamentals of handling a one-sail vessel and the second hour sailing solo. During the third hour, learn how to sail a two-sail boat, and the last hour exploring the bay at leisure.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This is a brilliant activity to do! My boyfriend and I have never sailed before so we weren't sure if we'd need a guide to help us but the man who showed us how to do it was great. English wasn't his first language but explained it very well and went on the water with us to make sure we were ok. I don't think an hour is long enough so would definitely recommend doing it for 2hours or even half a day so you can do more exploring!

Sailing was great! Four hours was the perfect amount of time for first time sailors to get comfortable and explore. When I arrived it did not seem very organized but everything worked out and we were able to get a short lesson and then go out by ourselves 20 minutes after arrival.

The hour went by fast. Is a little too pricey for just one hour :(
