Best way to see Fort Lauderdale: from the water!

I have done this cruise many times. The event is well-organized, departs and returns promptly on schedule, and is an excellent activity for all at a reasonable price. For newcomers to Fort Lauderdale, the commentary is informative and entertaining. The boat is reasonably comfortable for its size, and refreshments and bathrooms are available.

Successful spring break

This water traversed tour and history of Fort Lauderdale was a real ice breaker and major factor for a successful spring break for my family which included ages from 20 to 80.

Pleasant but not recommended

Directions to the event were poor: not clear from the on-line directions where you park or how you get from the parking to the kiosk/dock. Signage was poor. Once we got to the kiosk, attendant said that the bathroom on the boat didn't work, but didn't offer any compensation for this inconvenience. Finally, though the boat ride itself was pleasant enough, it's basically just a down-and-back ride, with much of the route the same, just in different directions. I suppose that the ride is worth $23.00, but it's a hassle to get there if you're not completely familiar with the area beforehand.

Did not honor free drinks and $4 parking on websit

Too much focus (or entire focus) of the tour is materialist, and showing off how rich those people are, and how much wealth gap there is. Not much mention on culture, scenery and history of the locality. After a while, I just ignore turned off to what the captain is saying, and I don't want to leave this trip with my mind focusing on money alone, how much money i need to make, etc and feeling depressed. Also the on their website it mentioned $4 all day parking but it was not honored. I saw another place where it said there are free drinks if you purchase tickets online. It was not honored neither.

The tour was great but the deal was fuzzy

It would have been nice to know when I made my reservations that Zerve was a fee-bsed vendor and not the tour operator. it was never made clear that there were other, cheaper ways to buy tickets for this excurson.

The vessel was not fancy, but very comfortable and clean. The narrator was cheerful, and funny, Felt that the reservation process on line was a bit cumbersome--also, the on-line booking stated that there would be a free drink included in the tour, however, we did not receive any documentation to present to the staff on board. The staff person did however, honor our verbal representation on the free drink
