Bahai Mar Marina, Ft. Lauderdale

Has anyone stayed at Bahai Mar Marina in Ft. Lauderdale? We have a slip booked there during Xmas and wondered if we made a good choice. Any intel appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Ouch that must have cost a nickel or two! Nothing cheap in Ft. Lauderdale though. Marina is focused largely on Megayachts and the like. Great location across from beach and short walk from Beach Bar/Restaurant strip. Ft. Lauderdale Water Taxi will pick you up there and take you to any of a few dozen restaurants. Also perfect starting point for a new river loop through smaller canals and back to ICW south of everglades and home. Lots to do there really. About as good a spot as Lauderdale has.

Actually, New River Marina is quite inexpensive. It's located downtown near the busy part of Los Olas Blvd. While showers and restrooms are available they are not convenient. Restaurants, bars and a Publix are all very convenient, though. It is usually booked up because it's by far the cheapest Marina in Lauderdale. To go to the beach you would take the water taxi.

BahiaMar is nice. Also...public bus stop close at hand will take you anywhere in town. The beach is just steps away.

It is nice, and the comment above about the megayachts, is quite true. You will meet a lot of capatins and crew... never the owners. They never come to their boats. Nice docks, but they will kick you out during the show if you are there that long. Good friends of ours lived there for a while.

C'Dad...would that friend be Travis Mcgee?

There actually is a slip at Bahia Mar, in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, F-18, known to all Travis fans as HIS slip for the Busted Flush ( his beloved houseboat)... It sits empty in Ft. Lauderdale, a memorial to a man who touched so many lives, yet never was.If you are ever in the area, check it out. With the price of large boat slips in the area, it is a fit testimony to the power of the written words of John D. McDonald, and his ability to make you believe that Travis will come floating by with a sexy white gleaming smile in deepwater tan smile for us all.
