Mahi was established in 1921 and serves Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties as wells as the Bahamas, Cuba, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. It peaked at 8000+ members in 1973 and continues to be alive and well in the South Florida Masonic community. It has served an important role in the history of the Miami area including hosting four Imperial Council Sessions: 1928, 1952, 1961 and 1971.

The 1928 Session helped to reinvigorate Miami after a devastating hurricane and land boom bust and began the modern convention industry in Miami. The 1971 session is still noted as the largest convention ever held in the area. Mahi also held the annual North-South College Football All-Star Game from 1946-1973 in the city's historic Orange Bowl stadium. It also helped to start the world famous New Year's Eve King Orange Jamboree Parade that was held from 1937-2001. Additional accolades have been building and donating the city's first YMCA Swimming Pool and starting the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair.

Today Mahi is a small but active chapter that has Shrine Clubs in Hollywood, Miami, Homestead, Key Largo, Marathon, Key West and Nassau. It meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Miami Scottish Rite Masonic Center in Miami. The Mahi Shrine Center, which proudly stood on the banks of the Miami River, and served the needs of the Nobility for 51 years, was sold in 2014 and Mahi continues to look for a new home.
