Wrong Information[edit]

Goverment Cut was a manmade project that took place in the early 1900's a hurricane did not split miami beach in two, this should be removed immidiatly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.8.177.2 (talk) 22:09, 30 November 2009 (UTC)


Wrong name[edit]

As per the Port's website (http://www.miamidade.gov/portofmiami/home.asp), it is the Port of Miami, not the Port of Miami-Dade, and I cannot find any citation on the port's website that it is named after Rep. Fascell. Since the article has been at this name for over two years, I'm going to wait for a week or so before moving the article to the correct name, and hopefully someone can answer why it's here, instead of Port of Miami. Horologium (talk) 16:15, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

I have corrected the name and moved the article to its correct location. Horologium (talk) 16:46, 10 April 2008 (UTC)


As of December 2011 the Port changed its branding and is now called PortMiami. It's official name continues to be the Dante B. Fascell Port of Miami-Dade. http://www.miamidade.gov/portofmiami/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.87.105.7 (talk) 14:45, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Narcotics Information[edit]

Its patently absurd to suggest that 80% of narcotics in the United States enter via the Port of Miami. That statement should be given a citation promptly or it will be removed. 70.117.149.39 (talk) 23:46, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

I missed that; it was added by an IP editor who seems to have a fixation on drugs and violence. I have removed the statement. Horologium (talk) 00:02, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Tunnel[edit]

Officially abandoned. Article should reflect that. (Pavelow235 (talk) 08:08, 15 December 2008 (UTC))

It was everyone's first impression that FDOT had cancelled the port Tunnel project. However, soon therafter up the current time, the project is very much alive. For the latest on the Port of Miami tunnel visit the newly inserted link to the project's website. Aebello (talkcontribs) 13:53, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Circular Link[edit]

Where it says "For the neighborhood in the City of Miami, see Port of Miami, Miami." It links back to itself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.229.98.125 (talk) 23:39, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Stub[edit]

This article seems way too short. I'm going to dedicate a section to the Port of Miami Tunnel and Deep Dredge projects that seem significant. Daniel Christensen (talk) 05:49, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Actually since this article is the way it is and has the picture of the big fancy cruise ships the port is best known for popularly, they should be separate. Daniel Christensen (talk) 06:13, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

references[edit]

Not surprising, though, it doesn't even have a railroad. Daniel Christensen (talk) 01:33, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Well, technically, it does have a railroad (I knew I remembered a railroad bridge leading to the island), but it seems to have fallen into disuse. Port of Miami puts rail project on fast track -- Donald Albury 13:10, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Outdated figures[edit]

Much of the factual information in this article appears to be outdated, particularly the bold claim one in seven of all the world’s cruise passengers start from Miami. The only sources I could find were blogs and the official PortMiami website, hence the lack of a reliable third-party source I feel may warrant removal altogether. I will try to find some sources to back up the other figures. For future reference, please date any such claims to avoid an accuracy dispute. Cheers — MusikAnimal talk 22:29, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

You might find this article of interest. Dated June 2010, Travel Weekly is claiming Fort Lauderdale might takeover as the new "cruise capital". — Preceding unsigned comment added by MusikAnimal (talkcontribs) 22:47, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
