There are many opportunities to enjoy the waterways throughout Florida. Here are seven of the best marinas near Miami Beach.
One Island Park
One of the newest marinas in Miami Beach designed for superyachts, One Island Park can accommodate yachts measuring up to 244 meters. It is popular for private owners due to the amount of VIP concierge services provided. The location of One Island Park on the MacArthur Causeway is perfect for charter transitions, as well as short and long-term visits. Its proximity to the U.S. Coast Guard Station, along with the on-site patrol and security gates, makes it one of the most secure marinas in the area. It is just outside of the Captain of the Port (COTP) border, so users are not required to file a NOAD 96 hours prior to movement.
