The City of Miami is located in Southeast Florida, in Miami-Dade County on the Miami River, between the Florida Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean. Since its incorporation in 1896, the City has grown tremendously, transforming it into one of the world’s renowned yachting and tourism centers.??Miami is known for its diverse culture and ethnicities and is the largest municipality in Miami-Dade County. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 362,470. By the year 2010 the population in the City is projected to rise to 390,191. Miami, which is known as the Gateway to Latin America, attracts a tremendous amount of foreign-born people, resulting in a large Latin American population that influences local culture.

The southern end of Miami, known as “South Beach” is the entertainment and boating center of the city. Besides laying out on the beach, people enjoy shopping, eating at local restaurants, checking out the art at local museums, and just taking in the scenes of the city. Miami is completely surrounded and pierced by water, and as such, there are dozens of marinas, from small, family-operated affairs to large resort marinas that cater to megayachts. ??[i]Portions Courtesy City of Miami[/i]

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Charts 11465 and 11467.

Government Cut is the primary ocean entrance to Miami and is capable of handling the largest of cruise ships and the heaviest freighters. With this in mind, be sure to stay on your feet and keep an eye out for commercial traffic such as tugs, barges, cruise ships and container carriers as you move in and around the Miami area.

From the Atlantic, first pick up red and white Morse (A) buoy “M” about three miles northeast of the inlet jetties, and then follow flashing green buoy “1,” flashing red buoy “2,” flashing green buoy “3,” quick flashing red buoy “4,” and flashing green buoy “5” as you use the Miami Entrance Range to help guide you in. Once you have cleared flashing green buoy “5,” you will then follow in the long succession of lighted buoys into the jetties at Government Cut itself.

Inside the inlet to starboard is Meloy Channel, which has many marinas for transient guests. If you are cruising the Miami area via the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway route, see our detailed images and schedules for the many opening bridges that crisscross Biscayne Bay.

Local Notices to Mariners:

Local Notices to Mariners are available online from the U.S. Coast Guard.
