Lived there 15 years and can say the sailing is great! Day sailing
on Biscayne Bay cannot be beat, its big and the water is a beautiful blue. For longer excursions you've got the keys all the way to the Dry Tortugas
, still can't believe we never made it to the Bahamas, but its right next door and for the classic daylight approach, just a short overnight sail to Bimini
. We sailed year round and the storms can be impressive, hey bring in the sails
, same as they do up north. The heat breaks with the 1st cold front in October and the weather
is pretty darn nice till early May. Watch out for January it can get down to the 30's and 40's for a few days at a time.
Life ashore is tuff, exciting but tuff. Just like NY or LA, be careful where you get off the freeway! If I did not have instant access to the water, I would have never lasted as long as we did. We had our catamaran
tied up behind the house on the Little River. Its a big international city and if you like to dance and watch half naked women you are going to love it.
