Snag-A-Slip blog - Turnberry Marina - Miami Florida
There’s a warm, sunny and luxurious boater’s paradise awaiting you in south Florida at Turnberry Marina. Located just 17 miles north of Miami and 12 miles south of Fort Lauderdale, Turnberry Marina is smack dab in the middle of posh metropolitan South Florida. It’s the boating vacation destination that will spoil you rotten!

Set on North Miami’s Intracoastal Waterway, Turnberry marina provides unmatched facilities, attentive service, and entree to a luxury lifestyle – on and off your boat. When you arrive, you’ll be impressed by the pristine, state-of-the-art property that recently underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation. You’ll be greeted by a low-profile floating dock system with 68 slips for vessels up to 160 feet and an average slip length of 90 feet. In addition, there are 1,000 feet of high-profile fixed concrete face dock that can accommodate boats up to 165 feet. 

What amenities do they offer, you ask? What don’t they offer? We know you’ll thoroughly enjoy working out in the fully-equipped fitness center, and cocktails in the Captain’s Lounge. There are also pristine shower facilities, bathroom, and laundry facilities, not to mention the WiFi, in-slip pump-out service, and more. You’ll also be pleased to learn that they have 24-hour security, so you can always feel safe and stress-free.

When you do decide to venture out of this eutopia, there are endless options to explore. The marina is just minutes from Turnberry Isle Miami Resort & Club as well as the cities of Aventura, Sunny Isles, Bal Harbour, Golden Beach, and Miami Beach.  You need only decide whether to relax at the beach or step out for a lively day or evening on the town. But why choose? Do it all!  You can start with a walk at the Arch Creek Historic and Archaeological Park, part of a historic trail used by the Tequesta around 2,000 years ago. If you’re looking to cool off and make a real splash, head over to the Tidal Cove Waterpark. There, you can take an adrenaline-packed gravity-defying raft ride, or meander down a lazy river. From your youngest crew member to the kid in all of us, there’s fun to be had. 

Be sure to leave some time to soak in the arts and culture at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center. From theatre to live music, the talent is first class. And, if you get a rainy afternoon, you must head to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) to marvel at their always-groundbreaking exhibits.  

Depending on what time of year you chart your course for the Turnberry Marina, you should know that there are many popular annual events in the area, such as the Miami Boat Show, Art Basil Miami, and the South Beach Food and Wine Festival. Last but not least, if you, or any of your crew members, are in need of retail therapy, look no further than the Aventura Mall. This swish shopping mecca is less than a mile away and will dazzle you with high-end shops and cocktails. 

If you’re ready for a taste of the bold and the beautiful, Turnberry Marina is calling you. Oh, and don’t forget, there’s a 10% dockage discount for Marinalife Cruising club members. Book your slip today!
