Fort Lauderdale Sailing Travel Tips

  • There's no shortage of charter vessels in the greater Fort Lauderdale area, which has everything from small sailboats to luxury yachts. For power-boat enthusiasts, intracoastal cruises along the mansion-lined waterways are a popular option.
  • Fort Lauderdale is home to one of the only sailing schools in the United States that offers all levels of the American Sailing Association program: the top-rated Blue Water Sailing School.
  • Water taxis are a fast, inexpensive, and fun way to cruise around the city. Just avoid the bigger, more crowded "water buses."
  • Looking for a nice slip? The Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Resort & Spa has 127, and they each come with all the conveniences of the resort (read: room service delivered right to your boat).
