Miami Day & Weekend Charters: Sail & Power

Whether you are a visitor to Miami, a local celebrating a special occasion, or simply want to embark on something new and exciting, book a private yacht charter on Biscayne Bay for an unforgettable adventure.

Enjoy a fabulous half-day or full-day harbor cruise with a fully customized itinerary tailored to your interests, or book for a long weekend or a full week! Cruise past the spectacular waterfront estates of the rich and famous, the Port of Miami, Brickell Key, Fisher Island and the Bayside complex.

Biscayne Bay is a state aquatic preserve, approximately 35 miles long and up to 8 miles wide, which includes Biscayne National Park. Among other attractions, the seven remaining houses of the storied Stiltsville settlement, which can only be reached by boat, are a part of the Park.

There is also a very popular off shore sandbar, a favorite stop for a picnic and a refreshing swim. While out on the bay you will likely encounter plenty of sea life, including Bottlenose Dolphins and Florida Manatees.

Viewed by day or at night, Miami's skyline is ranked third most impressive in the U.S., behind New York City and Chicago, and 19th in the world according to the Almanac of Architecture and Design. Cruise along this magnificent shoreline, stop for cocktails and to dine and shop at any of several waterfront venues. Pass the Port of Miami, ranked as the number one cruise/passenger port in the world for over two decades that accommodates the world's largest cruise ships.

We will arrange a charter that perfectly suits your party.

Getting married in the BVIs British Virgin Islands

Here's a press release we recently received from the Civil Registry & Passport Office of the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) concerning new policies for marriages...
Tortola, British Virgin Islands, September 13, 2012 – Saying, “I do” just became easier for couples heading to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) for their nuptials: Brides and grooms can now get married 24 hours after arriving to the Territory!

On September 3, the BVI Government made significant changes by amending the Marriage Act (Cap 272): Residency requirements for ‘Special Licence’ were shortened from three (3) days to one (1) day, a new fee schedule was introduced, and the steps to obtain a licence were all transferred to the Civil Registry for a ‘One Stop Shop’ process.

Couples even have the choice of beginning their wedding application online before arriving in the BVI, by submitting their information through the Government’s new Civil Registry Information System (CRIS) at

Prior to the improvements made to the Act, couples were tasked with stopping at three different locations to obtain the necessary documentation for the marriage licence application. Through these new changes, couples can complete the entire process at the Civil Registry where they will provide proof of their identity (passport) and marital status (original certified copies of Decree(s) Absolute for divorced spouses or original Death Certificate(s) of deceased spouse(s); apply for their licence, obtain a marriage certificate and present two witnesses.

The Special Licence fee is $220 and the Ordinary Licence is $120.

Additional fees are applicable based on the bride and groom’s wedding specifications: $220 for the Registrar-General or marriage officer to perform the ceremony, $120 for the ceremony to be held in the Civil Registry building and $25 for a certified copy of the marriage licence.

In the BVI, couples have many options for getting married and locations abound for conducting wedding ceremonies that are representative of the couple’s personality and style. The stunning group of islands and cays offer idyllic backdrops such as beaches, churches, yachts, hotels, villas, resorts, private islands, historic ruins, national parks, the Civil Registry, and many more to suit their tastes. There are also many experienced wedding, and event planners available to supply their requests. (For additional information visit the BVI Tourist Board website:

To apply in person for a marriage licence or any service surrounding the subject of marriage, please visit the Civil Registry and Passport Office, which is located upstairs of Burhym Electrical Services in Wickham’s Cay, Road Town, Tortola. The office is opened Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or telephone (284) 468-3442 for more information.
