The Miami Beach Watersport Center is located on scenic Indian Creek in Miami Beach, where fair weather allows for year-round watersports. During winter months, the average temperature in the Miami Beach is in the mid 70° F degrees (around 20° C). The “creek”, actually a large sheltered waterway, leads into several canals and Biscayne Bay for long rows with an unequaled variety of scenery. Our facilities and the availability of nearby hotels and restaurants are very convenient for an active training schedule.
Every winter, the Center is host to colleges such as Bucknell, Duke, Fordham, La Salle, Louisville, Ohio State, Rochester, the Naval Academy and University of Connecticut as well as the national teams of several countries. By choosing Miami Beach, these programs can focus on training in a warm weather environment with great water. A supermarket, restaurants and the beach are within walking distance of the boathouse.
If you are interested in bringing your program to the best year-round water in the U.S., we can help you make arrangements.
Please call (305) 861-8876 for more information.
We had an amazing time here in Miami, coming from Montreal in the middle of the winter, it was a breeze!. The staff welcomed us and let us feel like home. We really enjoyed every minute. The weather conditions were fantastic, even when it was windy. We were really able to prepare the girls well for the next season. They learned not only the technique but also about boat traffic patterns, security on the water and other fundamental elements we can’t teach on the Olympic basin in Montreal. We were able to row more than 5k on the canal or row many kilometers in the fantastic bay with an amazing view of Miami. We saw stingrays and dolphins along the way, and beautiful houses. Again, thanks a lot!
“I can’t think of a better place to bring the team for winter rowing than Miami Beach. We can always count on warm temperatures, and given the amount of water access there, we can always find good water to practice on. The Shane Center is a very well run training facility and the staff has been very hospitable to us year after year”
“Miami Beach is the best place imaginable for a week of training. The facility, the water and the people are first class.”
“We had a great trip again this year. The hotel worked out well and the parents are happy being close to the boathouse. The kids loved going out for practice and seeing the dolphins almost daily. Indian Creek is perfect! The extra time on the water here gives us the jump start we need. Already looking forward to Miami Beach next year!”
