13 UNESCO world heritage sites to visit by boat

1 of 13 1/13

Everglades National Park

Miami, USA

The Everglades National Park is one of America's most extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is located less than an hour away from the yachting hub of Miami in south Florida. A must-see spot for nature-lovers, visitors will see alligators, snapper turtles, alligator turtles and a variety of rare birds while soaring through its grassy waterways.

This natural wonder is best explored on a private boat tour, but the more adventurous should head to Dragonfly Expeditions. Based in the iconic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, it offers an Everglades backwater tour, a hike that will take you into the heart of this stunning and wild landscape. Striding through waist-high waters, you will come face-to-face with alligators, wading birds and river otters while surrounded by native orchids and dreamlike trees that loom out of the water.

Miami is home to some of the best superyacht marinas in the world, including Island Gardens, which can berth yachts up to 167 metres. Take a private car to the National Park and enjoy a scenic journey from their chosen marina to the Everglades.
