It was so easy to buy tickets through Zerve for the Ft. Lauderdale boat tour. The tour itself is great. We take all our out-of-town guests on it and they all loved it! Great way to relax, see beautiful homes and yachts, and kill a few hours on a nice afternoon!

I booked this boat tour for my boyfriend's birthday. We both LOVED it!! it was the 5pm one so it was perfect weather and beautiful sunset. The crew was great very funny and the tour was very informative. I'm a local but i learned sooo much! Would highly recommend! enjoyed the free drinks and the picture taken!

We have been to the Ft Lauderdale area many times but this was the first time we had been to the waterfront. The Cpt provided interesting tidbits regarding the homes and boats we saw and the cruise was quiet and relaxing. Free drinks were a nice change as well. There was an open area on top of the boat and a closed area if it was too hot/too cold or you just didn't want the wind in your hair. It was a slow meander down the waterway but at times it did get a little chilly so I would recommend a light sweater for the colder natured folks (like myself). By and large, a really nice time and worth the money. Our picture was taken as we boarded and the photo was provided at the end for a charge of $10, you got a small wallet size and a larger size. Nice souvenier.

Very informative

Really enjoyed the comments about the homes..boat owners..history of those on the water like the 90 years old lady who lives on the water as she boated by.. The weather was perfect and the staff was very good to us.. We are glad we were not pressured to tip,,but of course we did, it was a little surprising to us but as they say "Nothing is free"..Also my husband would have bought our picture if he looked better in the pic. We would definitly let all we know who visit Ft. Lauderdale to go on this boat cruise!!

I JUST MOVED HERE 2YRS AGO, THIS WAS MY BEST FRIEND'S FIRST TIME VISITING ME. WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO, AND IT WAS HER BIRTHDAY. WE WERE VERY PLEASED WITH THE TOUR. IT WAS RELAXING, AND VERY MUCH WORTH THE PRICE. I WOULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN AND I RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE VISITING OR LIVING HERE.

Did't realize this existed!

My husband and I were in town to go on a cruise the next day and needed something to do. I grew up in South Miami and had no idea that the "Venice of America" existed! We were pleasantly surprised, the tour left and arrived back on schedule plus fulfilled our expectations. Would highly recommend it!

A great time and best value!

Moved to the area back in June 2010. This is something I've been wanting to do since visiting last year. I took the opportunity to take my friend who was visiting from MA. We are so glad we did! I have a 9 month old who absolutely enjoyed being outdoors on the boat. The tour was great as was the crew. The bonus was the open bar of which my friend and others thoroughly enjoyed! All in all it was one of the best days we had during her week long visit. Will definitely do it again and highly recommend to EVERYONE!

Not Just For Tourists Fantastic Adventure
Wed, Dec 29, 10   5:00 PM Starlite2 Female 40-49 Local Individual
I am so happy I took my friends advice and went on this Boat Tour. Janet, who also lives in South Florida, had been on the Riverfront Cruise Boat with both family and friends over 15 times. It was hard to believe that she would repeat the same tour over and over but once I went.....I was hooked... It was like a little adventure in your own backyard. This tour is NOT JUST FOR TOURISTS..... I have lived in South Florida for over 20 years and had never done this. The boat goes out Everyday 4 times a Day so it's kinda hard to make an excuse. Go on your Lunch Break or on a weekend. Did I mention there is Free Open Bar Also, the Price is so inexpensive. I was genuinely surprised :) Definitely Worth It!!!!!!!
