Sailing along the Florida coastline on a sleek private yacht with your own chef onboard is the stuff dreams are made of, but dreams can come true! Image Yacht Charters provides customized cruises aboard their luxury yachts so you can be master of your own floating palace – for a few hours or even a whole week.
Beautiful Boats are Image Yacht Charter’s Business
Image Yacht Charters has been in business in the area since the 1990s, with beautiful boats and yachts servicing the private charter market. Pride of the fleet is the Fiesta Forever, a 76-foot Lazarro designed to impress even millionaire yacht owners. The boat has 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, 2 living areas with satellite TV and a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast nook. It can even be chartered with its own chef for longer voyages, along with captain and crew.
Designed for Caribbean sunseekers, the boat has a large sun pad forward and a further sun deck with grill on the flybridge. Optional toys include a 12-foot boat and two wave runners, along with fishing tackle, snorkeling gear, a kayak and a cool relaxation station. With a state-of-the-art audio system, it’s the perfect getaway for family trips, corporate entertaining, celebrating a wedding or hosting a special event.
With a luxury yacht charter, you get to choose your own itinerary, with the help of Image Yacht Charter’s concierge. The Caribbean, the Florida Keys, Bimini and the Exuma Islands in the Bahamas are all within easy reach. The clear warm waters are home to many marine species so you could find yourself swimming with turtles and playing chase with dolphins as they leap and dive in the foaming wake. Every trip is different, but all are totally unforgettable.
Cruise Itineraries with Image yacht Charters
If you want a taste of life aboard a luxury yacht, take a relaxing two hour cruise along the Caloosahatchee River or head out to Pine Island Sound for a stunning sunset cruise. You’ll see plenty of birds and wildlife whichever itinerary you choose, including dolphins, fish, herons and perhaps even the occasional manatee. Beautiful homes run down to the river and you can exchange a wave with fellow boaters, fishing enthusiasts and kayakers along the way.
Half day trips can get a little further afield, perhaps heading to the exclusive resort-style community at Tarpon Point Marina for a meal at the waterfront restaurant. You can chill out in the sun, go swimming, snorkeling and shelling from the boat, or stop off at one of the barrier islands or sandy cays. The joy of your own yacht charter is that you can do exactly as you please. Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island are popular places to cruise offshore while the nearby Picnic Island offers a beautiful place for swimming off the sand bar or exploring the desert island terrain.
Full day trips with Image Yacht Charters allow you to visit beautiful Captiva Island with optional ports of call at the stunning South Seas Resort, or one of the island’s popular waterfront restaurants such as the Green Flash. North Captiva is a great place for trying out those jet skis or trailing a line and hopefully catching a sizeable Spanish mackerel, snapper, pompano or snook. However, once you’ve tried a luxury yacht charter, you may find that it’s you that’s hooked!
