There is a great deal of commercial maritime activity within the region that is sustained by three major seaports and several lesser ports. These ports and their support activities are host to extensive international commercial trade and a cruise ship industry that services the tourist trades throughout the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean and Atlantic.

The largest regional ports in South Florida are the Port of Miami, Port Everglades and the Port of West Palm Beach.  The seaports are among the most active ports in the United States.  The Port of Key West and the Miami River port areas are also active trading ports in the region. In addition to the commercial cargo associated with import and export, foreign trade activities, and the nearly 4 million passengers departing annually, the Port of Miami is known as the “Cruise Capitol of the World.”
