The yacht has a very large swim platform with a ladder so you can enjoy swimming in Miami’s beautiful waters. There are recliners on the forward sun deck so you can enjoy the breeze while you tan.

"This cruise was an awesome experience! It rained and we still had the best time out on the paddle boards, at the sandbar and diving off the boat! The staff was super friendly and were available to me swap stories and let us enjoy our own time when we wanted to. Would absolutely book again! A great experience our family will remember for a long time to come!"

"I have taken several different types of cruises with Happy Cruises and cannot recommend it more highly!!! Whether you're looking for a romantic evening for two, some quality time with the family or a fun-filled day with friends, Captain Derek creates the perfect setting for you.
A comfortable and beautiful boat, the peace and awesomeness of the ocean and the warmth and friendliness experienced on board all add up to a truly memorable 5-star experience!!"

"We had an amazing time on Biscayne Bay with Captain Derek and Miami Happy Cruises, and I wanted to share. We went on with 4 adults and 3 kids (ages 8, 4, 3), and we had a great day. The boat is nice and clean, there is space on the front to sit, or covered in the back, or inside in air conditioning if you need to escape the heat. Captain Derek is an extremely nice guy, and the kids loved him! We went out to the sandbar, and got to relax in the water for a little while. There were some snacks and drinks provided for us, and coolers for anything else that we brought to eat or drink. Overall a great day on the water, and really reasonably priced compared to others. Can’t wait to go again!"

A Few Words​

About The Captain

I’m Captain Derek and I came to Miami over 30 years ago from the Caribbean island of Trinidad to go to college. I fell in love with Miami and its people and made it my home. As a result I have explored the amazing waters of Biscayne Bay, The Keys and surrounding areas. Above all we take pride in offering you personalized yacht charters in Miami.

It has always been my dream to share the joy I get cruising these wonderful waters with others. Finally a few years ago I pursued that dream by becoming a captain and acquiring the yacht “Happy Ours”. I hope I can have you aboard to share your favorite time of day and get to know your story.

"My wife and I along with another Couple enjoyed a Fabulous experience in Miami on a sunset and romantic dinner cruise with Happy Cruises the first weekend of November 2021. We had the pleasure of having Capt Alex and Dennis provide this experience. They totally Exceeded All Expectations we had for this adventure! We would totally recommend Happy Cruises to everyone. No Complaints and absolutely nothing negative about the whole experience."

I am not sure who said this, but I once heard, "When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love." We hope you #seastheday !

Of course I really love yachting and taking my clients on private charters but there’s so much more to it. The connections that I make with my guests are so special. One benefit of choosing Happy Cruises is that each of my guests are treated as my best friends. Are you ready to become friends? Click the link in my bio to learn more!
