Sunset sail on the Bay - We had a terrific time with Captain Steve. He sailed us around the bay and took us to see Stiltsville, the Lighthouse and gave us some history lessons as well. We all enjoyed the beautiful sights and amazing sunset.

Overnight Sailing Adventure - What a Blast! - We had a blast sailing with Captain Rodrigo and Chez on a 3 night, 4 day sailing adventure from Miami to Key Largo and back. The trip exceeded our expectations. Several surprises - the delicious taste and variety of each meal, the flexibility in our plan to snorkel where we wanted, the pictures they provided following the trip, the firework show we were able to see on New Years, and the overall attentiveness to our needs from blankets, to chairs while on the bow etc. The snorkeling was better than any I have experienced in the Caribbean. The boat was comfortable for 4 people. They welcomed our participation in sailing as much or as little as we wanted to and they were eager to share their sailing stories and knowledge. I really appreciated Rodrigo's approach to planning the trip with meetings in advance and sharing our route for feedback. Will be back again!

Sailing the Best of Biscayne - 10 stars if i could! From booking to the end of the trip, Rodrigo was absolutely fantastic! Communication was top notch, the boat was fantastic. Lots of room onboard! The cabin underneath has a great kitchen and galley area for meal prepping. Rodrigo really took the time to figure out what kind of adventure we wanted. Did we want more of a laid-back environment or really go sailing. This is booked for my husband’s 42nd birthday my husbands very much and detailing and Rodrigo made his day! My husband was smiling ear to ear. Is Rodrigo allowed him to help sailing the boat and really talk my husband the ins and outs of sailing . We brought on board a couple of snacks as our first charter we did not really know what to expect a Rodrigo does offer amazing food that we will be taking advantage of next time when we book! Rodrigo really knows the area, lots of history of the area, and it was an absolute gem to be around!he even got some amazing photos of us and emailed them! I really cannot wait to book our next trip with Rodrigo. We did it for our excursion this time, but definitely would do longer. The experience was so much fun that the time flew by! Thank you Rodrigo and steve for an amazing experience and looking forward to seeing you guys again very soon.

A Memorable Sunset Cruise with Friends - We took a sunset cruise with friends. Wonderful experience. Cap. Rodrigo created a 4-hour itinerary so that we could enjoy a tour of the Bay, take a swim in a safe and secluded area, and then conclude with an amazing view of the sun setting, with champagne and a bite to eat. This experience is highly recommended for anyone visiting or living in Miami.

Sunset Sailing Adventure - We had a group of six, three couples, and we set sail late afternoon on Sat Sept 9th. We were worried about rain since it had rained earlier in the day. However, it turned out to be a wonderful evening. Captain Rodrigo was cordial and accommodating. He offered us a bottle of Prosecco and we brought some other drinks and snacks as well. We left Coconut Grove and headed towards Key Biscayne. We pulled into a protected harbor and jumped into the water. We hung out swimming while sharing drinks. Captain Rodrigo had several mats to float on. It was very nice and relaxing and the playlist was perfect. The ride back was even nicer, with gorgeous views of the sunset and of downtown Miami. It was a beautiful day of sailing. Can’t wait to go back. Thanks to Captain Rodrigo for a great day on the water.

Miami sailing with Destino Carters - "We had the most incredible sailing experience with Captain Burgos in Miami and Key Biscayne! From the moment we set sail, it was clear that he was not only a skilled captain but also a passionate South Floridian. The boat was perfect for our group, and the entire trip was well-organized. Captain Burgos shared fascinating insights about the area. We swam in Biscayne Bay waters and enjoy breathtaking views of the coastline, Miami skyline and Coconut Grove. This sailing adventure was amazing, and I highly recommend Captain Burgos for an unforgettable day on the water!"
