During the sunset cruise, guests board a 50-foot catamaran and sail out into Biscayne Bay for unobstructed views of the sunset and potential drop-ins from dolphins, manatees, and pelicans. Passengers soak in other sights including celebrity homes on Star Island and Nixon’s Harbor, where President Nixon spent many a summer. The twilight cruise offers bedazzling views of the Miami skyline as it cruises past Miami Beach and the Miami Beach Arts District. Throughout the trip, patrons can listen to tunes and delight with delectables from the onboard bar, which offers a bottomless supply of complimentary comestibles and beverages, including beer, wine, soft drinks, and a variety of hor d’ouvres. The 50-foot catamaran can hold up to 49 passengers. Excursions depart Wednesday through Sunday at 6:30 p.m., and customers receive departure locations when making their reservations.
A white sail propels a 50-foot sailing catamaran out into Biscayne Bay. The wind-powered watercraft belongs to Playtime Watersports, whose captains narrate ocean sailing tours or host private and corporate events as sunsets paint the sky. Elsewhere on the bay, wave runners and pontoon boats—two of Playtime Watersports' other rental watercraft options—churn up water as they drag race with thrill-seeking dolphins.
Despite its name, Playtime Watersports doesn't limit itself to on-water revelry. The staff hosts corporate outings such as Beach Olympics, with events including beach volleyball, sand sculpting, and scavenger hunts.
