Re: Fort Lauderdale

I am biased because I left Lauderdale to live in Coconut Grove.

Just pick up a mooring at Dinner Key and enjoy the Grove.

Re: Fort Lauderdale

Thanks!

Is Dinner Key a mariner? i'll look at a chart - does someone rent the moorings?

Ha. No. Thatís an excellent price for one night on Fort Lauderdale. You can always anchor just north or the los olas marina but you wonít have access to a dock.

Los olas has a few moorings but itís real tight... I donít know why boats donít hit each other.

If you are in Fort Lauderdale short time itís best to bite the bullet and pay for the marina at los olas.

No, looked hard and that was the only place with an opening. Even the fuel dock across the bay charged by the hour....! Would have been a couple hundred $ for the night. Really a rip.
There are some public area up the river into town. You might try those. They were full when I was looking.

Here's a link to them and the one already mentioned:
City of Fort Lauderdale, FL : New River / Downtown Docking

Good luck!

Re: Fort Lauderdale

If you get lucky and there is one available, the moorings south of las olas are ideal. Definitely worth a shot. There are a few places to anchor but no real dinghy access.

thanks - there are three city marinas - range in price from 1.40/ft to 2.18 - apparently can't reserve moorings - so pretty risky NOT to reserve a slip....

thanks!!!

that sounds great - but if the field is full - don't want to get "stuck" at a slip that is 3-10/ foot. I think the city options look the best - we'd be happy to spend a few days south of fort Lauderdale - or even north while we provision and then head to a slip in ft Lauderdale to pick up crew.

it is what it is

thanks!
