As a professional yacht broker, I know what to expect during a powerboat cruise and a sailboat cruise.
If you're looking for a thrill ride, then definitely go with a powerboat and hold onto your hats, and forget about holding a conversation unless you slow down. Avoid being at the stern where the diesel fumes roll in.
If your plans are to relax with your loved ones and friends, with the ability to have a conversation, take photos of the sunset and Miami skyline, enjoy your food and champagne, then a sailboat is definitely your choice.
This has been our fourth outing with Captain Ramos since 2012 or so, and I highly recommend him to visitors. The Captain will cater the cruise to your preferences. We've included swimming, a guided tour of Stiltsville, and focusing on sunsets.
A note to newbies, using the head (restroom) in any boat will require going down below, and could feel like the restroom in a bumpy plane ride. So take advantage of the comfortable facilities at the Dock Master's building, before and after your cruise.
Soak in the beauty of Miami!

Captain Ramos and his beautiful boat were an absolute delight on our 4 hour tour of Key Biscayne Bay. The boat was immaculate - clean, safe and stunning. The boat provided the perfect haven to escape these crazy times. The highlight of the trip was seeing a pod of dolphins. Captain Ramos skillfully positioned the boat so that the dolphins were literally swimming next to us. Captain Ramos is a charming, hardworking and proud America who regaled us with stories of his journey from Cuba as well as the pride he has in his family. Ask him about his grandson. The trip exceeded our expectations and if ever in Miami again we will be booking another excursion with Captain Ramos.

Today we had one of the best days ever sailing on Biscayne Bay on the beautiful sailing yacht Carmela! The 48’ Beneteau captained by Israel Ramos was perfect in every way as his attention to detail and safety was paramount. The boat is immaculately maintained and spacious for groups. We enjoyed swimming, sailing and lunch before heading back just before Sunset. If you want a true customized sailing experience with an expert at the helm this is a must do!

Amazing experience with a great Captain! Captain Ramos proactively contacted us and worked out a last minute schedule change, when the planned day was forecast for storms. Out on the water, he took us to great spots to kayak and paddle board, taught us about sailing and gave us a chance to take the helm, and was just an incredibly interesting and fun person to get to know and spend the day with. No better way to spend a beautiful day on the water, and no better person to guide you!

Captain Ramos was very responsive helping me plan the perfect cruise for my husband's birthday. The location was very easy to find and Captain Ramos was waiting for us when we arrived. The boat was utterly spotless and looked brand new. The sail was one of the most relaxing things we have ever done. We were given snacks and drinks on the seats on the front of the boat as we sailed out to the location where our dinner was grilled and served. Everything was absolutely delicious! The sunset on the way back was stunning. We honestly cannot recommend sailing with Captain Ramos enough!!!...loved every single minute of it!!

Captain Ramos is AMAZING! I was planning a sailing event for my company and he far exceeded all expectations. Not only was he easy to work with, but he accommodated my every need (and there were many), and went above and beyond what he was expected to do. Carmela is a beautiful boat and my guests had a fantastic time sailing. If I'm back in the area I will definitely book again.

Capt. Ramos is a cheerful host as well as a lovely and knowledgeable captain. The Carmella is immaculate and inviting. Fitted out nicely. It was so pleasant to sail in Biscayne Bay on a sunny afternoon in the beginning of May. Capt. Ramos called with details and paying was done easily from his website. There was a special on the two hour cruise. Either get a $50 rebate check or an additional hour on the boat. So, of course I opted for the additional hour. "A three hour tour," rumbled through my head. Where's Gilligan?

If you don't get the reference, message me, I'll be glad to fill you in.

I asked about hiring the Carmella for a multiple day cruise going toward the Keys. Just what I'll need this Winter. Will definitely repeat. Thanks Captain!

Great sunset sail with Captain Ramos. His boat easily seats 6 in the back, but the prime seats are 6 up at the very front of the bow allowing for amazing views. Nice table in back for all the wine and food you want to bring onboard, bathroom downstairs, all implacably clean. Easy to book, quick follow up, constant communication, secure transaction, what’s not to like. We will do 4 hour sail next time for sure.
