Embark on an adventurous day on the water in Aventura.

With its eastern border along the Intracoastal Waterway, Aventura is a prime Miami area for boating, sailing and watersports in Miami. With Sunny Isles Beach, Oleta River State Park and the Haulover Inlet nearby, there are plenty of places to discover when you embark from Aventura for a day on the water.

Marinas

Turnberry Isle Marina & Yacht Club is one of the features of the all-encompassing Turnberry Isle resort in Aventura. Home to two 18-hole championship golf courses, a 25,000-square-foot spa and two signature restaurants, it’s a true community hub. Their marina is home to 117 slips accommodating vessels of up to 150-feet with private yacht and sport fishing charters available.

Nearby, Loggerhead Marina boasts 100 slips for vessels up to 120-feet with public access for boaters on the water. They’re located at Waterways Shoppes, an open-air plaza with shopping, dining and entertainment onsite. You’ll also find Williams Island Marina, Aquamarine Hi-Lift and other destinations to head out on the water.

Charters

There are plenty of options for chartering boats while you visit Miami. From skiffs to sailboats to mega yachts, charter options are unlimited. Look into Y Charter, Yolo Boat Rentals or Miami Charters to pick you up in Aventura for a day you won’t forget. You can opt to man the helm yourself or charter a captain, as well. There’s plenty to discover in the Intracoastal, including sandbars and small islands, while the open ocean offers exceptional views of Miami Beach’s famous skyline.

Another great activity is fishing. Whether it’s deep sea or flats fishing, Aventura is a perfect embarkation point to get offshore and reel in the big one. Look for a full day or half day fishing charter with Kelley Fishing Fleet, Corsair Sport Fishing, Sea Cross Sport Fishing or Reel Adventure Charters.

Watersports

Aventura is positioned just north of Oleta River State Park, Florida’s largest urban park at just over 1,000 acres. Here, you’ll find a peaceful river estuary amongst a tangle of tidal mangroves where you can kayak, canoe, standup paddle board or simply enjoy the beach on a protected cove. There’s also a small fishing pier on the south side of the beach where you can drop a line and hope for a catch. Haulover Park Marina is located directly across the bay where many fishing charters are available.

Sunny Isles Beach is the closest beach to Aventura, located just on the other side of the Intracoastal Waterway. Here, you’ll find vendors for Jet Ski rentals, parasailing and beach chair rentals to soak up the sun on the famous white sands of Miami Beach.
