Book one of our crewed Miami boat rentals and experience Miami’s rich history with a cruise down the Miami River to Brickell. Brickell is now one of Miami’s trendiest and most affluent downtown neighborhoods. Luxury living, dining, and entertainment, complete with boat accessible waterfront bars and restaurants. Once a busy port, Miami’s main waterway now runs straight through the heart of downtown. Your Miami River yacht charter takes you down the 5 1/2 mile long, historic, river, beginning at the Miami Circle, a 2,000 year old, Tequesta Indian site. Continuing west, your Miami River yacht charter passes The Royal Palm Cottage. This yellow cottage was built in 1897 for Henry Flagler, Florida railroad pioneer and developer credited with raising the city from the swampland.
As your Miami boat rental cruises up the river you will see industrial buildings, fishing vessels and other commercial operations. Remember, the Miami River is still a main passage way for cargo ships and produces about $4 billion in trade a year. Cargo ships use the Miami River to depart for 110 different ports, mainly in the Caribbean. You will be amazed as the tugboats guide the massive container ships through the narrow river without accident. Further down, among the industrial sites and cargo ships, you will come upon the “hidden gem” of the Miami River, Sewell Park. This 10-acre park on the river’s southern bank is one of Miami’s beautiful, natural environments. The secluded park features 100 year old, majestic palm trees and Grand Poinciana trees that provide shade from the hot Florida sun.
All Miami River boat rentals down stop at Garcia’s Seafood Grille and Fish Market for some of the freshest seafood in Miami. Garcia’s has been a mainstay on the Miami River for over 20 years providing seafood directly from their boats to your plate.
