Hobie Cat Sailing in Miami
Why Rent a Catamaran Sailboat in Miami?
The Bay of Key Biscayne is an exceptional place to go sailing, calm seas with good consistent wind year-round makes it a unique place located in the heart of Miami. Regardless of your sailing experience, cruising in the bay is safe and great to train new skills. We recommend for novice sailors to stay close to the departure point as they practice and build confidence. More experienced sailors are welcomed to cruise further out in the bay as long as they do not go on the ocean side or cross under any bridge. South Florida holds an extraordinary ecosystem full of life, don’t be surprised if you encounter a flock of wild bottlenose dolphins, spotted eagle rays, pelicans or maybe even some starfish while taking a swim at one of the natural sandbars. The entire bay is shallow with only 13 feet at the deepest point.
We highly recommend that beginners take lessons. You will be surprised how fast you will progress by receiving the proper guidance from one of our qualified instructors. In this type of sport, understanding the appropriate techniques is crucial and will benefit you moving forward!
Keep in mind that our club is not responsible for conducting rescues. Even though our staff will do their best to assist any boat in distress, the customer is held responsible for returning the boat to the departure point no matter the circumstances.

Hobie Cat Sailing Equipment
Hobie Wave Catamaran
(13ft/ max 4 passengers/ 1 sail/ 1 trampoline)
The Wave catamaran is great for beginners, having only one mainsail makes is an easy-to-sail boat. Whether you are just starting to learn how to sail or are not confident enough to take out the Hobie Getaway just yet, remember that you can’t go wrong on the Wave! It truly is a trouble-free boat that can be sailed by just one person with no problem. Fun for the family and exciting for the juniors while forgiving enough for the newly initiated, the Hobie Wave is the ideal must-go-sailing catamaran that will have you smiling no matter your experience level.
Hobie Getwaway Catamaran
(17ft/ max 6 passengers/ 2 sails/ 2 trampolines/ 2 coolers)
The Getaway catamaran is a much more enjoyable boat which can accommodate more passengers, contains two integrated coolers to hold drinks or snacks and offers more space to circulate. Having 2 sails and a longer overall length compared the Hobie Wave makes the Getaway an outstanding boat to cruise around the bay. Even though the Getaway does require a bit more experience, it can still easily be sailed by one person alone. No matter your experience levels, you will never get bored from sailing on this Hobie Cat!
