Key Largo is the first of 800 beautiful Florida Keys. (There are 42 bridges connecting the keys, stretching 180 miles from the southern tip of Florida!) Key Largo is about an hour’s drive from Miami, yet embraces a totally different vibe. Key Largo is laidback, quiet, and small and the area is teeming with wildlife.
Key Largo is the self-proclaimed Dive Capital of the world. It’s home to incredible dive and snorkel sites, including the largest artificial reef (the USS Spiegel Grove). Other notable attractions are John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park, and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

There are plenty of full-service marinas in the Florida Keys. Because Key Largo is the first (and somewhat biggest) key, it has a lot of options for starting or ending your boat rental. Mangrove Marina is off mile marker 91.7, tucked back off the main road and close to the Intracoastal. About twenty acres of the hidden waterfront are protected by the hearty mangrove trees surrounding the marina. Other nearby marinas in Key Largo include Blue Waters Marina, Molasses Marina, and Key Largo Resorts Marina.
Exploring Key Largo is genuinely fun! The best time of year to visit is from January to March thanks to moderate temperatures and clear skies. But keep in mind, this will also be peak season. What about the rest of the year? The summer months get super hot and humid while the fall is hurricane season.
Click&Boat offers plenty of boat rental options with a captain or crew. When you rent a boat with a captain, you can appreciate the boating experience more without worrying about navigation, anchorage, docking, or maritime laws in Florida. Having a local captain assist with your boat rental in Key Largo is a game-changer for an unforgettable sailing, boating, or fishing experience. A local will know all of the best-kept secrets of a destination and so will be able to ensure that you find all the most secluded and breathtaking beaches. A captain and/or crew may come as an additional cost to your rental, depending on the size of the boat, the number of crew, and other requests.
The tone of your charter experience will be set by the boat you choose to rent.

The climate during these months is just perfect for a luxury yacht charter – the temperatures are around 77 degrees with a light continuous breeze throughout the day.
