    We are anchored in Lake Sylvia and checked Las Olas [Fort Lauderdale] City Marina about landing our dinghy there. They said it costs $20 per day and you do not have use of any of the facilities! They also said a city mooring ball was $45 a day and then you could use the facilities. $45 for a mooring ball is $1500 a month which is absurd!!
    You can go west down the canal just north of the 17 street causeway bridge and land the dinghy at Southport bar and grille for $10 which is applied to any purchase at the restaurant. Also Coconut’s restaurant next to the Hall of Fame marina has a dinghy dock that you can use if you eat there.

    fyi – you’re expected to go into the Marina office and pay there…they don’t come out to the ball for you.
    Just so you know…

    The anchorage was completely empty for us. Nice beefy tackle on the mooring ball handled our 15,000 lb 32 foot boat just fine in the modest current. We arrived at 4PM and left at 7AM and we not asked for a mooring fee. Nice spot.

    After spending an expensive week at Bahia Mar Marina in Ft. Lauderdale, I noticed a small (10-12 spots) city owned mooring field 500 yards north of the Bahia Mar Fuel Dock. According to the water taxi, the cost is $35.00 per night. There were three sailboats securely hooked up in this protected area. A quick tender ride to downtown would be easy. I checked my extensive list of cruising guides, and nothing was mentioned of this area. Make a note ICW cruisers and save some cash while staying in Ft. Lauderdale!
