Sailing a Hobie cat is one of the great things to do with kids or solo and this is a really nice place to do it, with lots of open water and a view of the city skyline. It takes only a little knowledge of sailing and is fun and splashy if the waves are up. We had a great... More

We rented a catamaran for four people. The main "captain" was given a lesson, which didn't last long as he's done this before. After that it was pure joy, sailing and tacking our way across Biscayne Bay. Wear your sunscreen, as you can and will get sunburned. Lifejackets are provided and required. You can bring a cooler on board (they... More

I went to sale there today. People were not very nice, not very welcoming. I asked for simple things like a plastic bag for the cellphone or a towel when I came back, nothing. As if I am the only person with a cell phone or may need a towel got forbid. Just take the money and go. No one... More

My fiance and I decided to try this out and we ended up having a blast. Even though we did tip over (hint: if they offer to show you the ropes, you should do it!), we had a lot of fun. They came out and righted us back up and we got back to sailing around again. We'll definitely have... More

This was a teambuilding activity, the group enjoyed every minute of it! The staff was wonderful, polite and outgoing. They helped to keep the activity in order from beginning to end but still allowing the group their space to enjoy the activity out on the water. Will definitely do it again!

Very convenient and easy way to sail on Biscayne Bay with amazing views of Miami. They are right at the end of the causeway and have there own parking spaces. There is a restroom right next to the beach as well. They rig everything up and help get you going. They have two boats, one with two sails and one... More

Great equipment, polite staff, fantastic setting in safe waters....the sea breeze is always blowing towards the beach, so even in tricky conditions you're safe! I've used them many times over the years and will continue to use them!

We rented a catamaran on two separate occasions. The staff was very nice and the boats were great! The beach is really nice, too.

Thomas took us out for 1+ hours and did a fantastic job on the catamaran lesson. We're ready to go out on our own now (though we still need a lot of practice to avoid stalling). Ask him to capsize it at the end; it's a really cool experience and reassuring practice. They did cancel and reschedule us by a... More
