Pleasant boat ride

Very enjoyable boat ride for the most part. Breathing intense diesel fumes at the turnaround portion not so good. We found the commentary cynical and political in nature and the captain sounded very bored and detached. For those visiting Fort Lauderdale it's a great way to see the Intracoastal waters and mansions.

Good even when you have some time to spend

Nice trip, good comments, friendly service, well organized. Just what I have expected. Not overpriced. We spent some time from our trip coming from Orlando to the Keys. We liked it. Just finding the place gave us a hard time. Our gps lead us to the wrong side of the river, so if you do the trip, calculate enough time to find the place.

Great way to see how "the other half" lives.

Fantastic tour! Lasted 90 minutes and featured tons of great boats & homes. I purchased my tickets ahead of time, online, and I would recommend you do the same. Online purchases apparently also get a free drink for each ticket purchased, so that is also a nice perk. If/when I return to Ft. Lauderdale, I would love to go on this tour again.

Great tour but smoking allowed and I was trapped.

This was a great little tour of Ft. Lauderdale canals and the Intracoastal Waterway. Great crew and boat. The ONLY drawback was smoking is allowed on the boat, and I don't think it should be. However, I realize there are probably more international tourists who still use cigarettes than domestic toursits who don't, so I have to realize the demographics the business serves, and that has to be their decision. I also have a right not to take the tour, but I had no idea smoking would be allowed. I absolutely would not have been on the boat had I known in advance. Just my opinion.

An enjoyable and educational tour. The guides were very knowledgeable about the area and it's history. The boat was very comfortable with 360 degree viewing at the upper level. I will definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a boat tour in the Fort Lauderdale area.

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.
