Florida Bareboat Recommendations

Hey guys (non-gender specific term, more of a general greeting, ladies please also reply as my crew is also my finance') -

I've got a few days to burn second week of Feb and would like to bareboat 3 to 5 days in south Florida - been brutal here in Atlanta....

Any specific recommendations for which company, a good itinerary, areas to avoid, areas to focus on, anchorages, marinas, etc (basically, can you plan a trip for us....)

Qualification's not an issue - We're comfortable as a crew of 2 on anything up to about 45' with a minimum of say 32' for a short trip.

We're generally familiar with FL waters and the geographical layout of the Keys, Miami, Naples areas - but have never sailed those areas or waters. We prefer the Atlantic side to the Gulf, but could be persuaded otherwise.

Would appreciate any and all specifics! Thanks!
