Looking for a marina in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale for May. Recommendations?

I'm looking to stay in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area from end of April till the beginning of June. Looking for a reasonably priced (not the cheapest, but reasonable) marina for a 40-foot monohull with 6.9 draft.

Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!!

There aren't any cheap ones in that area, that's the middle of water tourism country. As far as good ones though? Pier 66 is very nice, ft laurderdale.


You might get a reduction in price if you stop off a little farther north, and you might get some reduction in price as you travel through the keys and pick lower end marinas, but otherwise if you want to cruise through florida, you'll be paying a pretty penny.

Thanks for the input!! Yeah, the ones I contacted are definitely what you call a "pretty penny."

Will look at Pier 66. Thank you!
