Location

A common mistake, Port Everglades is not actually part of the wetland ecosystem known as the Florida Everglades, we are located on the southeastern coast of the Florida peninsula within the three cities of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Dania Beach, as well as unincorporated Broward County.

The Port is conveniently situated near the Atlantic Ocean shipping lanes, the Florida East Coast railway, Florida's highway system, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and the beautiful beaches of Greater Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood.

Port Everglades serves all of South Florida and is in close proximity to Miami (23 miles south), West Palm Beach (48 miles north) and Orlando (215 miles north).

The Broward County Port Everglades Department is located at 1850 Eller Drive in Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316.
