Aloha and welcome aboard!
I'm not familiar with Miami but the phone book yellow pages would be a good place to start. Also look for sailing/yacht clubs that offer courses.
ASA and USSailing are two schools that offer quite a few courses as well as the Coast Guard Auxiliary and U. S. Power Squadron.
kind regards,

Another way to go is to find a smallish, inexpensive, friendly Yacht Club, join and get busy meeting folks and making known your wish to sail and learn. You will get many offers, and beer can race nights are a great way to start.

And welcome!

ain't what ya do, it's the way that ya do it...
