Baker's Haulover Inlet is a man-made channel in Miami-Dade County, Florida connecting the northern end of Biscayne Bay with the Atlantic Ocean, at coordinates 25°53′59″N 80°07′26″W / 25.89972°N 80.12389°W / 25.89972; -80.12389. The inlet was cut in 1925 through a narrow point in the peninsula that extends to a point east of the mouth of the Miami River, and which now is occupied by the cities of Bal Harbour, Surfside and Miami Beach. The cut is bordered to the south by Bal Harbour, and to the north by Miami-Dade County Haulover Park. A fixed bridge carries SR A1A across the inlet.

The name is reported to have appeared on maps as early as 1823.

There is a State of Florida Historical Landmark Marker (over 50 years old) at the original Lighthouse Dock site dedicated on February 21, 2004, to the first charter-boat captains at the 1926-1951 dock. It is the only marker in the State of Florida for a fishing dock.
