Description

A marina on the W side of the canal just below the dam at Flamingo has berths with electricity, water, ice, and limited marine supplies.
Gasoline, diesel fuel, and launching ramps are available on either side of the dam. A 5-mph no-wake speed limit is enforced in the canal.

The entrance canal, and even the marina itself, is VERY shallow. They are considering closing it off to boats over 20' because of damage to sea grass on the approach (but still open to large boats). Many boats over 20' have to enter and exit with the high tide, so be sure to check the tide tables for flamingo. Even then, once you're in a slip, your bottom might be gently resting in mud much of the time. When in doubt discuss it with the dockmaster at
Flamingo. Call on VHF Ch 16. At low tide  the entrance channel
have depth down to 2.8 ft.

Un port de plaisance se trouve sur le canal du côté W, juste en dessous du barrage de Flamingo  avec électricité, eau, glace, et des fournitures marines limitées. Essence, carburant diesel, et les rampes de lancement sont disponibles sur chaque côté du barrage. Une limite de 5-mi / h est appliquée dans le canal.

Le canal d'entrée, et même le port de plaisance lui-même, est très peu profond. Il est fermé au large pour les bateaux de plus de 6 m à cause des dommages occasionnés à l'herbe de mer sur l'approche (mais toujours ouvert à de grands bateaux). De nombreux bateaux de plus de 6 m à entrent et sortent à marée haute, donc n'oubliez pas de vérifier les tables de marées pour Flamingo. Même alors, une fois que vous êtes dans un slip, votre fond pourrait se reposer doucement dans la boue. En cas de doute en discuter avec le Dockmaster du Flamingo. Appel sur la VHF 16. À marée basse, le chenal d'entrée a une profondeur de 2,8 m.
