My husband and I recently returned from a trip to the Keys and Miami and we both have such fond memories of sailing on biscayne bay! We decided towards the last minute to book a private sailing tour with Luis and Mabel (April 2013) and it was the best thing we did. Was perfect to get away for a while from the craziness that is south beach and sail out on the bay and spend some time together on the water in the sun. we booked a three hour sail and sailed out to the no name harbor where we dropped anchor and had a great falafel lunch complete with a delicious mango salsa, chips and apples slices...we also went swimming in the harbor and the setting was so peaceful to float around and enjoy the sunshine and a corona or two for my husband ;) the classic sail boat has a section in the front with a spot perfect for a couple to lounge and sit to enjoy the ocean and take it all in....in the back of the boat there is seating near the captain perfect for having lunch getting some shade and having a chat with the two hosts and hearing stories about the area...for my husband and I have who have both never sailed before it was such an enjoyable trip we can't wait to go again and will certainly try to book a second longer sail next time we visit! Apart from the perfect weather we had and the great food and relaxing ambiance of the sail boat Luis and Mabel are such friendly gracious hosts, I am pregnant and Mabel made sure to check the winds before our trip to make sure it wasn't going to be rough, which it was not at all, Mabel also took some photos of us while we were sailing which is part of a tour package and it was the perfect touch to have some memories of our trip and capture the moment...Overall cannot recommend this trip more, if you come to the Keys/Miami area and love the ocean and are looking for something more than the average speed boat trip on the bay ...you cannot miss this :)
