About your host

I am co-founder of Sundown Boat Rentals and also a licensed US Coast Guard Captain. I have been boating most of my life and have a passion for being on the water. I have been exploring the area for many years will share my discoveries with you. I have found some really cool places that regular boat renters often miss.

What we’ll do

First we will conduct a safety briefing to go over the boating safety requirements and boat rules. As we depart the marina we will discuss the general history of the area and the places we will go. Each tour is different as the locations are determined based on the weather and tide. Generally in the morning we will go to the Oleta river wildlife area and look for manatees and other wildlife…

What else you should know

If you have children under 2 years of age, you are required to bring your own approved life preserver for your infant. USCG regulations require that children under 2 years of age must have a preserver on at all times while on the boat.

What I’ll provide

Water
We provide bottled ice water for everyone on the boat
Safety equipment
We provide all USCG required safety equipment (life jackets, etc)

What to bring

Sunscreen, beach towel, hat, and beach/water shoes
Wear a swimsuit if you intend to enter the water
If you wish adult beverages you can bring your own

Where you'll be

Oleta River can only be accessed by shallow draft boats, especially at low tide. The river meanders through a protected mangrove area that are just full of birds and other critters. The Haulover Sandbar is a popular location with locals, especially on the weekend. It has soft white sand and crystal clear water. Indian Creek is an exclusive private island with some of the most expensive homes in Miami. You can only see these homes by boat.
