Aviation & Regional Visitors Center

The Aviation Center on Watson Island provides a dual service that includes the Miami Heliport and the Miami Seaplane Base. The Miami Heliport is currently in the process of being relocated adjacent to the property occupied by Chalk’s Miami Seaplane Base. The Seaplane base is operated by Chalk's Ocean Airways and uses the Port of Miami's deep-water channel and turning basin for aircraft operations and has use of approximately 15,000 feet of water runway in a NE/SW configuration. The heliport will operate as a public heliport.

The Miami Heliport will be an attended public facility that will serve rotor aircraft. The future intent of this facility will be to provide corporate and tourism services. The City of Miami has partnered with Miami Sports and Exhibition Authority to develop an aviation center that will house both the heliport and the seaplane base. The seaplane base currently exits primarily to support Chalk's operation, with flights to destinations in the Caribbean and Ft. Lauderdale.
