Sailing on a sleek catamaran is the best way to explore Miami’s beautiful Biscayne Bay. Whether you want to learn how to sail or want to rent a boat to take out on your own, there is a catamaran option for you! Choose to rent a catamaran for your own adventure, or upgrade to a sailing lesson, where a professional instructor will guide your boat through the bay and teach you how to sail.

Discover the natural beauty of Biscayne Bay while you glide through the water on this Miami catamaran experience. While sailing through the bay, you will pass a variety of deserted islands, marinas and city sights like the Museum of Viscaya, the Cape Florida Lighthouse and Stiltsville, home to stilt houses that have been part of the bay for years. Beach your Hobie Cat on one of the many sandbars to enjoy a swim in Miami’s clear waters, and watch out for dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles and manatees, all of whom may pop out of the water at any time.

Biscayne Bay is protected from most weather conditions, which makes sailing through the bay fun and easy for sailors of all levels. The sunny weather of south Florida allows you to sail year-round – no wetsuits needed, just a whole lot of sunscreen!

Catamaran Rental:
If you choose to rental option, you will receive a 15-minute briefing on how to operate the Hobie Cat catamaran before you head out to explore the bay.

Catamaran Sailing Lesson:
If you want to learn how to sail yourself, then the one-hour or four-hour lesson option is for you.
On the one-hour sailing lesson, you will learn sailing fundamentals and the art of navigation as you sail around Biscayne Bay with your instructor.
If you select the four-hour sailing lesson, you will spend the first hour learning the basics of sailing a one-sail vessel, and you’ll spend the second hour sailing on your own. During the third hour, learn to sail a two-sail boat, and spend the last hour exploring the bay on your own.

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.
