Sailing into the Sunset –Key Biscayne Champagne Cruise

Book Your Key Biscayne Sunset Sail 

A Downtown Miami sunset is an extraordinary and scenic sight to gaze upon, especially when viewing from a luxurious sailing catamaran overlooking the heart of Miami. Who needs a movie when there is all this beauty around?

There are a multitude of yachts and other boats that flood the Bayside Marketplace’s dock, but the Caribbean Spirit stood out with its pristine red and white exterior. The catamaran is a large and very comfortable yacht with grand, high sails were hard to miss that birds found a peaceful resting spot.

Following the safety precautions from the captains, we sailed away from the Marina and walked onto the beautiful white deck. We were greeted by smiling bystanders on other boats, to whom we waved excitedly back to.

Cruising through Downtown Miami

As we passed the prestigious Miami hotel, the Intercontinental, the sun began to show itself. It peeked from behind the clouds, while a rainbow formed toward the outer edges. Guests onboard surrounded the left of the deck to get alluring photographs. The calming island reggae music set the tone while the relaxing winds swept across our faces. Joyfully, we gazed at the serenity and immersed ourselves in the peace that surrounded us.

Sunset Sailing off the Eastern Coast of Florida

The sun was slowly revealed as it moved across the horizon. A pop sound signaled champagne bottles being opened by the boat crew as complimentary glasses of the bubbly were passed. We were now watching the sunset in true Miami style. The Cruise continued towards the direction of the sun.

The charter passed by an open ocean where we could see the sun tucking beneath the horizon, gleaming its radiant reflection upon the waters.

We returned to the Marina, presented by a well-lit festive marketplace of vibrant restaurants and live music. It was the perfect Saturday night to grab a bite to eat and enjoy the live music at Bayside.
