Our Florida Keys itineraries can be either 4-day, 7-day or 10-day trips, but all depart from downtown Miami. Boarding and departure times vary depending on the trip, so please make sure you know your departure and arrival date and time before booking flights to Miami.

If you are arriving well before boarding time you are welcome to drop your luggage off on board with a crew member and explore Miami until it is time to board. Please do not plan to board the boat before boarding time.

  • 7-day trips depart on Saturday afternoon with boarding at noon. Juliet returns to Miami on Friday morning
  • 4-day (and special 5-day) trips depart on Friday evenings with boarding starting at 5pm. 4-day trips return on Tuesday morning (5-day trips return Wednesday morning).
  • 10-day trips depart on Saturday afternoon with boarding starting at noon and return to Miami on the following Monday morning.

All trips disembark at 9am on their day or return. Flights after 11AM departing from MIA, or noon departing from FLL are ok. Allow a little extra time on weekdays to allow for traffic.

If you are flying in the day of departure (Saturday) please be sure to include your airline and flight information on your passenger information form so that we know when you will be arriving. If you are arriving well after boarding time for your flight, let the office know – don’t worry, we won’t leave without you!

On day of return, disembarkation is at 9am. To allow for ample no-fly-time we recommend booking flights that depart after noon to avoid having to cut your diving short on the day before return (we will typically offer dives up until 4pm). Current DAN recommendations for no-fly-time are 18-24 hours after multi-day, multi-dive profiles. Always follow your computer’s recommendation and know your personal limitations.

If your flight or check-in time is not until later in the afternoon, you are welcome to leave your luggage on board Juliet while you explore Miami until your time of departure.

Getting to Juliet in Miami

The boat is located at Bayfront Park next to Bayside Marketplace. The closest address is 401 Biscayne Blvd, Miami.
