I had a hard time getting the name of Miamarina correct. It usually has plenty of space for transients (except during the boat show), and is the same price as Dinner Key. (as of 2003-2004 it is $1.85/ft/day or $25/ft/month). Plus Florida tax of course. In 2001 it was cheaper than Miami Beach, and much nicer. The price includes electricity, water and cable TV. It is also convenient to most stuff.
Florida residents who want to get a slip for a year can get a lower rate.
Bob used to walk over to the Sheraton to pick up a rental car before they tore it down. Now you could probably get Enterprise in downtown Miami to come and get you.
The marina has parking for slip renters. Bob doesn't think much of the showers though, so we are showering at our daughters. No internet connection there either, but I can do pocketmail with the pay phones. There is an internet cafe in the mall, and a wireless connection in Starbucks (also in the mall).
Equipment: They have concerts almost every night at the mall and 100 restaurants and shops. We could the hear concerts if we went on deck, but we don't have to listen to them if we go below. The boat does not appear to get as dirty as it did at Miami Beach. I would say it is no noisier than many other marinas. It's farther from the trains than Melbourne. There are planes flying overhead, and sometimes horns and sirens, but all-in-all, we like it pretty well.
