1. Las Olas Marina

Las Olas Marina, Fort Lauderdale.

Las Olas Marina (developed by Suntex Marinas) is situated in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s Intracoastal Waterway. The versatile marina features 60 slips capable of handling mega yachts, docking, and boater services.

Pro Tip: Boatsetter recently partnered up with Suntex, giving their boat owners access to more than 20,000 boat slips across 70 locations!

This marina is within walking distance of Fort Lauderdale Beach and is part of the annual in-water boat show. Take a stroll along the waterfront promenade open to the public and access fine dining restaurants, assorted retail shops, and exceptional views, all found on Las Olas Boulevard.

2. Marina Bay Marina

Situated on the New River, the luxury resort and marina offer a variety of features and amenities to enhance any time spent at the marina. There are 168 deep-water slips available for annual, seasonal, and transient rentals with the capability of accommodating vessels from 18 to 140 feet.

Five minutes from the marina, boaters can access a marine hardware store stocked with boating apparel, supplies, and fishing gear.

3. New River Downtown Docks

New River Downtown Docks, Fort Lauderdale.

Located in the heart of downtown just off Las Olas Boulevard, the New River scene is charming, with brick-paved walkways surrounded by natural landscaping. The marina is within walking distance of cozy cafes and interesting shops. Dock your boat in one of the 100 slips fitted with full utilities that include electricity, sewage, water, and phone.

Pro tip: You don’t have to leave the water for a bite or a beverage. Stop at these waterfront restaurants:

  • The Historic Downtowner
