Transportation for Miami Events this February

The Miami International Boat Show is back in town and is just one of the awesome Miami Events this February! Known for being one of the largest and most influential boat shows in the world, it plays host to approximately 100,000 attendees every year! Taking place at the Miami Marine Stadium in Virginia Key, it’s the perfect spot for test driving that boat you’ve been thinking about getting. Vendors from top-selling brands will be there in droves to make sure you won’t have to go anywhere else for all your boating needs!

Plan Your Boat Show Travel

The easiest way to get to the island while avoiding traffic is through the water taxi service that Island Queen Cruises will be providing through the show, from the 13th to the 17th. Their fleet will be running services to and from key areas such as the American Airlines Arena, Bayfront Park, and Dinner Key Marina.

The Miami Yacht Show at the Sea Isle Marina will also be added as one of the key spots for the Water Taxi service, ensuring a seamless experience between events and providing ease of access to both. Take the scenic route and relax with some drinks as you admire the Miami skyline on your way to and from the boat show. Our friendly staff of captains and our crew on the boats and on the docks will make sure your journey to the show is more than just a short trip. Water taxi services will be free to guests who have tickets to the boat show, and only $10 for those who do not. For tickets and information, please visit www.miamiboatshow.com.

Coconut Grove Arts Festival

Founded in 1963 by Charlie Cinnamon, The Coconut Grove Arts Festival started as a way to promote a Coconut Grove Playhouse production. Since its inception, it has become a three-day event taking place this year from the 15th through the 17th along McFarlane Road, South Bayshore Drive and Pan American Drive in Coconut Grove that attracts approximately 120,000 visitors who come to enjoy the works of about 360 artists as well as music, food, and other family-friendly activities and attractions.

Monty Trainer, the famed original owner of Monty’s Raw Bar and President of the festival, was chosen to head the event. And with a colorful history that includes a brief stint in the Pensacola penitentiary in the 80s after opening Monty’s Raw Bar in 1969, it’s easy to see why Mr. Coconut Grove, an apt nickname, is the best choice for the occasion.

Just a few steps away from Dinner Key Marina, chartering one of our stylish yachts to take you to and from the festival is the best way to arrive in style.

Beat the Traffic

With all these events taking place all over the city this month, the roads are sure to be congested and traffic will probably be at an all-time high. What better way to avoid this hassle than by chartering one of our yachts as a water taxi or using it as an opportunity to entertain your guests and visitors during this busy season?
