South Florida

Plan a vacation on the water. Nothing says vacation like heading to South Florida, renting a boat and spending days on end on the water. With companies such as Miami Catamarans and Tropical Boats renting power boats for use at Miami beaches, travelers can enjoy a romantic getaway or family vacation to Miami, Florida, without needing to go farther than the beach. Yachts and power boats are great for private parties and birthday celebrations.
