Marina & Marina Store
The Flamingo Marina is Everglades National Park's only marina, open year round, and operated by Everglades Guest Services. The marina store offers food, drinks, and fishing and camping supplies. Restrooms are located adjacent to the marina store.
Marine fuel, regular gas, and diesel fuel are available next to the Marina Store in Flamingo.
For motor boat access to Florida Bay from the park's Homestead entrance, use the Flamingo Marina boat ramp. Flamingo's other motor boat ramp provides access to the Buttonwood Canal and connects to Whitewater Bay, the Wilderness Waterway, and the Ten-Thousand Islands.
The boat ramp at West Lake is only open to boats with motors no greater than 6 horsepower. Flamingo and West Lake both provide access for canoes, kayaks, and sailboats. For access to the north end of the Ten-Thousand Islands, the Gulf Coast Visitor Center has a launch for non-motorized watercraft, such as kayaks and canoes.
