Marina Mile Yachting Center is located just west of HWY I-95 on the Fort Lauderdale New River.
Heading south, the route to the New River follows the ICW around a sharp turn to the west past flashing red “16”. Just beyond, the channel splits. Care should be taken when you pass red-and-green junction daybeacon “A”. To go up the New River, leave the marker to port; to continue down the OCW channel, leave it to starboard. The water is shallow immediate behind this daybeacon, and boats going up the New River frequently run aground by passing it on the wrong side. Leave it to port and, heading west, watch for daybeacons “1” through “4”. There is a white-and-orange “DANGER” daybeacon marking the charted shoal, as well as one marking the shoal on the opposite side of the ICW from the New River Entrance.
Heading north, the ICW is basically a straight line from the Southeast 17th Street Causeway Bridge to flashing red “20”, where the Waterway channel starts a turn to the east, but a secondary channel continues northward to the mouth of the New River. If bound for the New River from the ICW heading north, vessels should leave flashing red “20” to starboard.
After passing the light, favor the bulkhead-lined western shore just opposite red daybeacon “2” until you have made the
turn into the river’s buoy system. Aids to navigation on the New River route, after passing red and green junction daybeacon “A”
or flashing red “20”, follow the normal red-right-returning rule for the river itself (river aids to navigation do not have the yellow
squares or triangles of ICW aids).
When traveling the southern approach to the New River, watch the chart closely and sort out the confusing transposition of buoys and colors before trying the entrance. Once inside the river’s mouth, the buoy pattern is easy to follow. The property is on the port side as you pass the CSX Railroad bridge just after Lauderdale Marine Center heading West. Once past HWY 95 and the CSX Rail road bridge captains may turn in the Marina Bay yacht basin approximately 1200' further west and head back east into the MMYC yacht basin.
If you are arriving to Marina Mile Yachting Center from a foreign port, please contact the local US Customs Office.
