The Palm Beach Boat Rental Experience

Depart from the dock at 9 or 10 AM and cruise up the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to glamorous Palm Beach. It’s a journey straight out of an episode of Life-styles of the Rich and Famous. No, we don’t have Robin Leach, but you will see countless waterfront homes and clubs along the way with many of the fabuloushomes and estates appearing as large and luxurious as clubs! When we arrive in around mid afternoon we’ll dock at one of the city-owned Australian/Brazilian/Peruvian docks which are but a “stone’s throw” from the fabled Worth Avenue and its world-class shopping (Worth Avenue is often called Rodeo Drive East!). Even if you only window shop, it’s a true life experience you’ll remember for a long time.

THE PALM BEACH EXPERIENCE (2 days, 1 night)

Come evening, you can have cocktails and dinner at one of many noted nearby restaurants – say, the famed Brazilian Court – and then return to your private yacht for a peaceful night’s sleep.

As your second day begins you’ll have your choice of a continental breakfast aboard or heartier fare ashore. Again, there are many shore-side options available within an easy cab ride of the marina including the world famous oceanfront Breakers Hotel. The Breakers still represents the utmost in luxury and elegance that it originated so many years ago and is known world wide as Palm Beach Style. After breakfast we’ll check out of the marina to cruise a short distance northward toward Lake Worth inlet (and past Peanut Island, where JFK had his Palm Beach emergency/security bunker when he was president) where we’ll go via the ocean route (weather permitting) to see all the beaches and oceanfront properties down as far as Miami Beach (South Beach). There we’ll once again take the inside route and see yet more homes of the rich and famous (Gloria Estefan, Rosie O’Donnell, Julio Eglacias and others) as we return to the dock, arriving late afternoon.

For a more youthful and contemporary first afternoon and evening, we have the option of docking on the west side of Lake Worth at Palm Harbor Marina where nearby Clamatis Street provides a wide variety of restaurants and clubs with the more casual flair of West Palm Beach. Yet, if you wish to shop, Worth Avenue is still but a short cab ride away just across the lake.
