Miami-Dade Parks Urges Boaters to Plan Ahead Before Launching Their Boats

Author  Laura Phillips

MIAMI —Miami-Dade Parks wants to remind and encourage boaters who make our beautiful blueways a part of their park experience, to fully inspect their vessels, ensuring that all equipment is in good, serviceable condition and that life jackets are on board, and to register for free Miami-Dade Marina SMS Alerts here. This service keeps boaters up to date on issues like hazardous weather conditions and boat ramp closures and reopenings via email or text alerts on their mobile phones. 

Before heading out to launch and to avoid delays, contact the marinas for updates on important information, such as:

•Best time to launch in order to avoid delays.
•Updates on traffic and parking conditions.
•Availability and affordability of short-term wet slips for the holiday weekend.

Miami-Dade Parks’ six full-service marinas offer exciting resort-like amenities, such as wet slips, dry storage, boat ramps, transient dockage, fuel, bait and tackle, boat rentals, diving, and landing facilities, all to provide patrons with the best possible boating experience.

Remember, calling ahead and advance planning is best. For a complete list of Miami-Dade Marinas visit the Miami-Dade Parks web page.
