Captain Niño helms his Tartan 34 sailboat "Dorinda" as it glides into Biscayne Bay for views of Miami, Brickell, and Key Biscayne. Customers join two to four other passengers on the cruise, which includes soft drinks, snacks, relaxing music, and professional photography with a select image from Mabel Niño.
Sailing on Biscayne Bay
As Luis Niño programmed the printer for another press run, all he could hear was the ocean—the waves rolling against the boat's hull, the wind whipping across the sails. After navigating waters from the Florida Keys to the Bahamas for years as a recreational sailor, he dreamed of one day captaining his own ship, eventually taking the leap and launching Sailing on Biscayne Bay.
Today, Captain Niño and his wife, first mate, and professional photographer Mabel welcome passengers with English and Spanish salutations as they board the Beneteau Oceanis sailboat, "Quitasueño". They charter two- or three-hour, half-day, and full-day sails through Biscayne Bay along Miami, Brickell, and Key Biscayne. Luis and Mabel entertain guests with drinks and snacks and can also arrange a catering menu.
