Thank you for your interest in our PRIVATE DINNER cruises in Miami. We offer a luxury dining aboard sailing yacht with quality menu and dining set up. Our dinners are not typical "boat meals" nor pre-prepared microwaved foods, our cooking is from fresh and quality (organic when possible) ingredients. Most of our provisions are purchased in quality The Fresh Market and organic WholeFoods Store.
Private Charter means the whole yacht and crew is exclusively for your enjoyment. You will be the only couple/group taken care of and the dinner will be prepared freshly aboard only for you - we do not offer commercial / public boat dinner cruises nor shared with other couples.
This luxury trip is just for you.
We cater to couples (charter for two), family or friends of 4* and 6 guests* (*6 hr charter suggested with casual dining setting).
Most of our dinner sails take place on our comfortable mother vessel - "Como Tu" that comfortably sit by table 2 guests or up to 6 with casual foredeck setting. We also have a luxury option that can sit by cockpit table 4 guests (luxury "Wind Runner”)
Our Dinner Charters require min. 24 hr prior reservation - no last minute offers available (however you could still call us early in the morning for the evening charter - if available) - as the provisions have to be purchased and certain foods prepared. If you want to book us during the weekend (which is usually booked in advance) - reserve us ahead.
The total charter price consists of two parts: a sailboat rental and dinner menu - and final rate depends on the menu you choose and number of guests.
DINNER CHARTER RATE = BOAT RATE + DINNER MENU (Crew Gratuity- not included - pls appreciate crew for their extra service)
Final rate depends on charter duration: 1/2 day (4.5 hr) or 6 hr / charter rates are not per person - but per trip (pls contact us for rates) and your menu selection and number of guests

We start sailing from the heart of South Beach Miami offering BEST views of the City from close. We continue sailing by Downtown waterfronts, Port of Miami, Fisher Island, Virginia Key towards Biscayne Bay.
Our dinner cruise is a minimum 4.5 hr charter (truly recommended as 6 hr) and dinner is served on calm waters at anchor in a secluded bay with BEST views on Downtown Miami. On a 6 hr cruise we may serve dinner in Nixon Cove with beautiful views on Miami Skyline and the bay and waterfront mansions (while crew prepares your meal - you have time to ralax on floating chairs or swimming by the famous sandbar) or in the secluded No Name Harbor (7h weekdays) in Cape Florida State Park of Key Biscayne - while the crew prepares your meal, you have time to go ashore and stroll in tha park - when you are back, the table is all set for your culinary enjoyment. We can also visit a secluded beach, where you can kayak, snorkel and swim before dinner (min 6 h charter)
And undoubtedly the most beloved part of our sail is the route back to Downtown Miami by night - with most spectacular views of the City in its glorious city lights. It will stay in your memory for ever.
