Boating in Fort Lauderdale

Dockshare has identified Fort Lauderdale as a 2023 boating hotspot! With dozens of docks for rent in Fort Lauderdale on our platform, we wanted to tell you about our favorite way to spend a weekend boating in Fort Lauderdale!

Did you know that Fort Lauderdale is nicknamed the “Venice of America”? That’s because Fort Lauderdale has over 300 miles of canals and channels in its Intracoastal Waterway!

First, you’ll need a docking point for your boat! When you book with Dockshare, you have the freedom to dock your boat at a private dock of your choice!

When you’re ready to get out on the water, there are a few awesome boating destinations you shouldn’t miss:

1. Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk
Be sure to boat by the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk! Located in downtown Fort Lauderdale, this is the perfect place to view lush parks and Fort Lauderdale’s urban center. With a few Dockshare listings located walking-distance from downtown, we recommend you make a short reservation for a pit stop during your day on the water.
2. Hillsboro Lighthouse
Check out the Hillsboro Lighthouse on Pompano Beach! It was built in 1906 in Detroit, Michigan, and shipped all the way to Fort Lauderdale. Plus, Pompano Beach boasts beautiful white-sand beaches as well as several wrecks and dive sites.
3. Lake Sylvia

For a relaxing day on the water, check out the hidden Lake Sylvia. It’s beautiful and peaceful. If you need help navigating to this lesser-known spot, check out our partner Argo for navigation help!

With plenty of docking and sightseeing options in Fort Lauderdale, it’s the perfect spot for your next boating adventure. Whether you’re visiting the area for a weekend trip or staying for much longer, Dockshare offers dock rentals for hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly needs!
