The Chesterfield Palm Beach

Admiring the glitter of Palm Beach from the breezy deck of a charter boat is one of Florida’s many pleasures. From venturing out into the open waters of the Atlantic or exploring the sprawl of Lake Worth Lagoon, getting around on the water is as easy as it is enjoyable. While staying at The Chesterfield Palm Beach, take the helm or kick back and allow a captain to lead the way on a Palm Beach charter boat. Our recommended tours offer everything from a high-octane aquatic adventure to romantic sunset cruise.

For luxurious tastes

For a luxury yacht, look no further than the portfolio of well-appointed vessels offered by Millionaire’s Concierge. From an understated and superlatively lavish selection of sleek vessels in varying sizes to an authentic pirate ship – complete with blustering sails and a crew of costumed pirates – there’s something here for all tastes. Possible extras include jet-ski rental and an onboard chef offering first-class tailored menus.

For dolphin-spotting

Those on the look-out for dolphins alongside Florida’s wealth of marine life should hop aboard Palm Beach Dolphin Tours 33ft Osprey. Track bottlenose and Atlantic spotted dolphins, and keep a look-out for turtles, sharks and stingrays along the way on this three-hour tour off the coast of Palm Beach. The breezy open deck is equipped with a subaquatic hydrophone, which records a fascinating symphony from the deep for those onboard.
