Dodge Island

Dodge Island is an artificial island in downtown Miami, Florida, United States. It contains the neighboorhood of Port of Miami and the port Port of Miami, the largest cruise ship port on earth.

Prior to its disestablishment, Dolphin Cruise Line was headquartered on Dodge Island.[1]

The original and much smaller Dodge Island was created during the dredging of Government Cut in the early 1900s.[2] According to The Miami News, the island went unnamed until 1950 when Mr and Mrs Ray Dodge of Wisconsin, friends of Frank Stearns, director of the City of Miami Planning Board, were visiting and asked what the island was called and, "unable to come up with a name of the island ... Stearns gave the parcel of land its present name."[3] The current island was formed by further filling which combined Dodge Island with two other man-made islands, Lummus Island and Sam's Island.[4]

Geography

It is located in Biscayne Bay between Miami and Miami Beach[5]
