        Coconut’s restaurant next to the Hall of Fame marina has a dinghy dock that you can use if you eat there.

        This facility is not being maintained in accordance to the prices being charged. The restrooms are NASTY and not being cleaned regularly. Feces on the toilet seats for 3 days now. toilet paper out. Security I have seen 2 times in 10 days.. People come in at night by walking in with paying customers. Boats come in after dark and leave before dawn. I had a guy urinating off the bridge behind my boat and called security, he was at the fisheries and I never saw him that night. Boaters communicate through the web. I like to be persistent to foster change for a better future for the mariners. I cannot agree I paid $1500 to park a 34ft. boat for this kind of treatment. We need to do better people!

        We stayed at Las Olas [Municipal Docks] when we passed through Ft. Lauderdale. We really like the facilities, and the beach was a walk or easy bike ride away from the marina. I needed diesel oil and had a ride of about 15 miles round trip to find it. We rented a car for a couple days and enjoyed Ft Lauderdale. We tried to leave for the Bahamas from there on a good day, but came back to tie up because our radar stopped working as we left the harbour.

        here are two centers for marinas in Fort Lauderdale. You have to decide if you prefer to stay near the beach or downtown which is two miles up New River. Cooley’s Landing is the municipal marina downtown on the New River. I believe Cooley’s Landing has a 50 foot limit and may be tight for your 49 foot boat. Las Olas is the municipal marina on the ICW near the beach. Las Olas can accommodate larger boats on the ends of their Tee-docks. Las Olas has gated security on each dock. The Water Taxi stops close to both marinas. We have stopped at both of these marinas. Of course, there are dozens of other marinas!

        Las Olas offers a Boat US discount of 25%. We agree with the other reviewers, the facilities are first rate and a real waterway bargain. Pump out only at fixed dock, C. Great pump out, no fee. Don’t look for dockhands to catch your lines or assist with the pump out, we couldn’t get anyone on VHF or phone. When we went into office, one employee was at his computer the other was playing with his phone, too busy to assist on the dock. Very disappointing. Also, dock numbers are written vertically on faces of posts so that one must enter the fairway to see them.
        The Quarterdeck as mentioned is great; good food, reasonable prices, and good service. Also, it’s only a two block walk to the beautiful beach.

        I’m not sure why we never tried the Las Olas City Marina, but after recently reading veteran cruising writer Tom Neale’s glowing review of the city’s facilities at Las Olas, we decided to give it a try. Well, well, well. This is very different from what we’re used to. At first, as we spied the marina tucked under — literally — the Las Olas draw bridge, I thought, Tom, what were you thinking? But I was wrong and I now get it. This is yet another Florida city marina that shows what good government can and does do while keeping affordable and good facilities available to the transient boating public.
        As I just mentioned, this marina oddly occupies both sides of the Las Olas bridge. Yes, that Las Olas, the last and huge opening bridge you encounter southbound that brings you into the heart of Fort Lauderdale. So, before you arrive, find out which side of the bridge your slip will be, North or South. The marina staff is very courteous — they offered us a slip on either side clearly explaining the advantages of each. The North side of the bridge brings you closer to the cruisers lounge and facilities and the South side gets you (a) past the opening bridge and (b) a little further from the bridge noise. One thing to note at the moment is that the pump outs on the South side are broken and there are no immediate plans to replace it.
        So what’s it like living under a busy draw bridge? The bridge noise is definitely noticeable — the first night I felt like I was in a Woody Allen movie describing my childhood living under the Elevated train in Brooklyn. After a while, it became white noise. But, a bright side is that being under the bridge, you are in the no-wake zone — so there is surprisingly less wake here than from the apparently more-protected marinas we have stayed in here. Also, odds are a mega yacht will occupy the ICW T-head and lucky you will be protected even more from ICW traffic.
        As for “amenities”, the cruisers lounge, laundry, heads and showers are first rate municipal facilities. They are far better than most facilities we have been offered on the ICW and certainly better than facilities we have used in neighboring private marinas in Fort Lauderdale, perhaps these facilities are designed for cruiser-customers and are not what I have experienced as barely sufficient for their purpose after-thoughts constructed for the crew of or day workers servicing a mega yacht. Euphemistically called “Comfort Stations” in Las Olas-speak, these really are.
        In sum, Las Olas is an impressive facility and well located. It gets special Captain Jane Gold Kudos for its copious and accessible recycling bins (plastics 1 and 2, cans, bottles and paper!) Thank you, Las Olas for your commitment to recycling and for helping cruisers do their part to reduce our impact on the environment! This is yet another example of a Florida city marina that is in many ways superior to its privately-owned pricey counterparts.

        Stayed at Bahia Mar mid May for four nights and loved it. We spent many happy hours at the pool and liked the catwalk over the road directly to the beach. The fitness center looked newly refurbished. The hotel facilities wee used were just fine. Staff were helpful and prompt. If you are looking for a combo marina/resort, this is a good one.

        The prior cruiser mentioned security, so I feel obliged to comment on what we saw and heard. We went down to Key West overnight and left the boat with no issues. On our return our neighbors reported that a sailboat on the far end of our dock had been broken into. Security cameras supposedly showed no unauthorized access to the dock. Our neighbors had been questioned by the police as they appeared on the security video. They reported that the police thought it must have been thieves on a boat who came in from the ICW and hit the first yacht they came to – hard to defend against.

        Heads-up on security here.

        Arrived a few days early to attend Trawlerfest Feb. 2-4 2012. Tied up on H dock north marina. Very gusty winds that day/night, 25-30kts N-NE. Middle of the night woke up to boat moving about excessively. Went out to check lines and found both spring lines lying in the water. I’ve been tying lines for 30yrs and my knots do not come loose. Fortunately dock lines held and no damage.

        Next day had a brand new Trek bicycle stonen from parking lot in broad daylight. Had been cable locked to bike posts about 100yds from the security office. Security is present but focus seems to be down at the south marina where all the big mega’s are tied up. Incident(s) reported to security and local FLD police. Police attentive, security folks not overly impressed.

        Unfortunate black eye for what appears to be a well run and well maintained maintained facility.

      1. Jeff and Michele Prahm -  July 29, 2010 - 10:29 am

        A fellow boater told me that Pier 66 had a dollar per foot special last summer and might repeat it this year. Michele called and was told that they were not doing that special this year. She started to hang up when the dockmaster said he could give us that rate for the night. A dollar per foot at Pier 66? We took it and pulled our little 34-foot Marine Trader into a slip suitable for a 120-foot mega yacht. We loved the location, the swimming pools, the restaurants and the bars (we couldn’t enjoy the revolving bar atop the Pier 66 tower since a wedding reception was being held there. The restrooms were clean with good water pressure and working AC. Laundry facilities, fuel and a small marine store are available on site. Of course, being the Yachting Capital of the World, just about any service is available in the Fort Lauderdale area. Pier 66 is located on the east side of the ICW, just north of the 17th Street Causeway in Fort Lauderdale. You can bike east to Lauderdale Beach and the tourist shops at Beach Place. Just south of the 17th Street Causeway is Port Everglades. From there, you can continue south on the ICW to the Dania Beach Cutoff Canal or Hollywood Beach and Miami or head east out onto the Atlantic Ocean. This is a nice jumping off point to Bimini.

        Try dania beach municipal marina. It Is 2 miles south of port everglades inlet. Brand new marina, concrete floating docks. $750 per month annual I think $900 monthly. The price is by the slip not by the foot, slips can
        handle up to 50×17.

        The New River Docks (also owned by Ft. Lauderdale) are slightly less expensive, but you have the opportunity to give back to the community by making friends with the people who sleep/live in the park (and there are some interesting people there – and I’m not saying that in a bad way).

        went to the wall on the New River for 3 weeks! The guys are wonderful and so accommodating~~Matt, the harbormaster, Kevin, and Joe, in particular. It was a cocophany of sounds and sights with a constant parade of people on one side and boats on the other. We were across the river from the jail—right in the middle of downtown and a couple miles to the beach. Everything we needed—Sailorman, West Marine, Boat Owner’s Warehouse, was within bike riding distance. We were also walking distance to the Broward Performing Arts Center (which we took advantage of one evening) and museum and discovery center. For your next guide—a tiny little convenience store, My Market, has the most incredible subs we’ve ever tasted!!! It’s on 17th, just a block or two across the tracks. They also have salads, etc., for take-out.
        Thanks for all your help.

        Spent a week at Cooley’s Landing part of the Fort Lauderdale City Dock system and found that the friendly service and careful advice provided by Matt just added to our overall enjoyment. Our slip was near the 7th Ave bridge, which provides a steady passage of beautiful yachts for those days when you just want to watch the water.
        The laundry is newer and works well and the showers are clean and neat. Can’t ask for more and we expected much less at their value added price.
        A short walk on the very pleasant SW Riverwalk brings you to the shopping district on Las Olas.

        Check out “The City of Ft. Lauderdale at Cooleys Landing”
        It is inexpensive – $1.25/ ft. $0.12/kw electric after a one time charge of $10 or $15)
        It is convenient to a lot of restaurants.
        There is current, but if you are going to be there for a while check with the dockmaster and they will tell you when the current will be slack for the easiest docking.
        There is a pleasant waterfront walk to lots of activity and you are far enough from the activity for it to be quiet at night. You also get a great tour of the New River on the trip up the river and you can take the dinghy another couple of miles upriver for more interesting sights. We have stayed there several times and will stay there again.

        here are two centers for marinas in Fort Lauderdale. You have to decide if you prefer to stay near the beach or downtown which is two miles up New River. Cooley’s Landing is the municipal marina downtown on the New River. I believe Cooley’s Landing has a 50 foot limit and may be tight for your 49 foot boat. Las Olas is the municipal marina on the ICW near the beach. Las Olas can accommodate larger boats on the ends of their Tee-docks. Las Olas has gated security on each dock. The Water Taxi stops close to both marinas. We have stopped at both of these marinas. Of course, there are dozens of other marinas!

        It was one of our favorite stops last year on our way south, spent a week also….hope they have the stealing in check now. Great spot for yacht watching, eating and walking on the water front. Enjoyed the water tours that let you on and off and back on to many stops including the beach. Would do it again..just have to time the current when docking there, can be very very strong at wrong time.

        Cooloey’s Landing is a great spot from which to enjoy Ft. Lauderdale. Free trolly to beach and another up and down the beach takes you near West Marine, Sailorman, Blue Water Books, etc. We spent a most enjoyable week there just before Christmas.

        Cooley’s Landing up the New River (a Ft. Lauderdale city owned marina) is a good place to go. We stayed there for a couple of weeks before heading to Key Biscayne and then the Bahamas. While there, we were able to spend lots of money on the local economy (provisioning, boat repairs, museums, mass transit, restaurants, etc.). The people at Cooley’s were great and the facilities were good. As long as you time your docking to be at slack tide (the current rips through this area so other times are tricky), it’s a nice place to be. You can certainly see some pretty crazy megayachts being tandem towed by bow and stern coming through the narrow river.

        We stayed at Cooley¹s Landing on the New River in Ft Lauderdale. It¹s clean, secure, has a nice laundry room and it is relatively close to a large Publix for stocking up. The price is $1.25 per foot so reasonable in Ft Lauderdale. If you come, fuel up before you leave the Keys as fuel is more expensive here. We paid $3.06 for diesel at Lauderdale Marina.

        Cooley’s Landing Marina on the New River in Ft. Lauderdale rates a ten as a place to stop. Megayachts with a tug at the bow and another at the stern pass by regularly. The downtown and the riverwalk area are all within walking distance. There is a multiplex theater nearby, and there is an Imax theater even closer. Further, the Imax shows first run pictures. There is no better way to see a movie. There is a Publix nearby, as well as drug store, etc.
