Florida Yacht Charters?

I believe mostly the cruising area is a bit difficult as far as getting into areas of the Keys with the draft of the larger boats. Also getting to Key West or the Keys from Miami is not a one or two day trip for charter guests. Your average charter guest only wants to sail 3-4 hours max a day before wanting to go ashore or anchor. It is limited that way and all depends on how the company markets the cruising area. I enjoyed sailing the Miami area but my expectations were not high and I did not expect to get to Key West and back in 7 days which most people expected. I think that FYC does well because they have a base in Key West and you can do one ways. They have set them self up properly and realistcally.
