's main cruising grounds include South Florida, The Florida Keys and the Bahamas.

Charmer is based on the shores of Biscayne Bay, in historic Coconut Grove just a few minutes from downtown Miami, Miami Beach or Miami International Airport. Biscayne Bay is a one of a kind body of water with clear, blue green waters, protected from the opean ocean yet deep enough to be navigable by larger yachts. About half of the bay is protected from development and polution being part of Biscayne National Park.

Biscayne Bay is a terrific playground to enjoy a day or more on the water in sunny South Florida and our half day or full day packages will allow you to experience what makes Miami such a unique destination. Your charter will typically include a few hours at the popular Key Biscayne sandbar, as well as a cruising tour of downtown Miami and South Beach. We can even take a detour up the Miami River so you can experience a slice of Miami's diverse waterfront.

And if this wasn't enough, it is litterally the gateway to the Florida Keys and only two hours from the island of the Bahamas.

- In the spotlight: the Exumas -

Are you looking to get away from everything to enjoy a string of islands surrounded by emerald water so clear you can see conch tracks on the sand 10' below the surface? Islands so close together that you spend very little time under way and most of time enjoying incredible anchorages, beaches and sandbars... Then a week in the Exumas is what you are looking for!

Located in the central Bahamas, the Exumas include hundreds of islands and cays just 30 miles from Nassau and its international airport with numerous daily flights from the East Coast. Once you leave Nassau on the Exuma Bank you enter the perfect cruising grounds for private yachts, with no major airport, no cruise ships and no big developments. Our crew is very familiar and experienced with the Exumas and will take you not only to well known spots like Staniel Cay and the Thunderball grotto but to less known cays where you will have the most incredible beach to yourself.

If you are looking for the ultimate vacation experience, it doens't get better than the Exumas!

Miami, Ft Lauderdale and Palm Beach (3 to 4 days):
Enjoy the sights of South Florida's Intracoastal Waterway on a leisurely cruise to glamorous Palm Beach. Explore Fort Lauderdale New River and Las Olas boulevard. Dine in the Palm Beach Clematis district and shop the next morning on Florida's Rodeo Drive before returning to Miami.

The Florida Keys (3 to 7 days) :
A 10 mile long chain of tropical islands with clear waters and sandy beaches. While the Upper and Middle Keys are an easy run from Miami on a short three day get away, Key West and its world famous sunsets makes a great destination for 5 to 7 days charters.

The Islands of the Bahamas (3 to 7 days):
Paradise is just two hours from Miami on Charmer. Bimini is a great weekend destination with unspoiled beaches and gin-clear water. For longer cruises (which can begin in either Miami or Nassau), the Exumas, the Berry Islands, Eleuthera and beyond are within reach. We will tailor your luxury cruise to your desires!
