Default Good Miami Boat ramp

I'm going to Miami next week to do some boating. Where is a good boat ramp near south beach or downtown Miami? Thanks!

Close to downtown is on Watson Island, off MacArthur Cswy between Miami outboard club and Miami yacht club. Better ramp and parking on 79th st. or use the Haulover ramp. You can leave your truck overnight at Haulover.

Dont leave your truck and trailer overnight at the 79th street ramp !! I would use the ramps at haulover. Its about a 10 minute ride by boat to downtown Miami and alot more secure

Nothing in South Florida is secure !

This part of the state is like Dodge City.

Ramp @ MOBC is not a good option. South of downtown, Matheson Hammock has great ramps and security. 3 minute idle zone to open bay, no speed limits..

Dinner Key in the Grove has good ramps, lots of sunken boats in the channel still tho...

Key Biscayne has a great ramp, the 3 bucks an axle toll kills me tho..WTF, the causeway was paid for 20 years ago and they keep raising the tolls..

As stated above, Haulover has good rtamps also, but in the north end of town.
