Description:
Miami Seaplane Base is a public-use seaplane base located east of the central business district of Miami on Watson Island in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. The seaplane base is publicly owned.

History

In 1926, Chalk's International Airlines built an air terminal on a landfill island, Watson Island, where it has continued to operate for 83 years. Its scheduled and other flights by flying boats and amphibian aircraft served many points in the Bahamas and other nearby destinations. Chalk's moved its main base to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport after the attacks of September 11, 2001, because of security concerns around the Port of Miami-Dade and increased helicopter traffic around Watson Island.
