Relaxing day on the water. Only negative was we were surrounded by a group constantly talking, and was unable to hear most of the on board commentary.

This cruise fit in nicely with our agenda for the day. We took the 10:30 cruise that ended at noon which we where able to follow-up with a lunch at a local restaurant followed by an afternoon at the beach.

The cruise itself does not last 90 minutes. The total cruising time is slightly over an hour. It's well worht the price of the ticket, and the captain & crew are very friendly and knowledgeable. There were less than 20 passengers on our cruise which made it very relaxing and enjoyable.

Enjoyable cruise on the Inner Coastal Waterway

We took the first a.m. cruise on 4/8/08, and it was a very enjoyable time. The crew was congenial, and the narration interesting. Having to throw away our half-full cups of coffee bottled water before boarding was a little annoying. I understand their need to make a buck, still it's annoying. I did note that the Ft. Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Guide offers 2 for 1 pricing, but it's limited to the summer months. Seeing as we had only a dozen or so people on the boat, I wonder if offering a similar package year-round would not attract more riders.

The ship was safe and fun. The knowledge of the tour guide was superb! Funny as well. I learned so much about the wealth of FTL from this trip. Many great business owners and stars own houses on the water here.

The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable regarding the tour. The only thing we thought was a turnoff was the photo op at the beginning, other than that, it was great.

My wife and I brought my handicapped (wheelchair bound) elderly father and his personal caretaker over to Ft. Lauderdale area to visit his elderly sister, probably for possibly the last time. I as well, am totally disabled and can walk with great difficulty, only when using a cane. We wanted to do something very different having to do with the water in which which we could do some sightseeing as well as to get an idea about the area and some of the attractions and the higher end local residences, etc. The Riverfront cruise company was recommended to us by the Hotel at which we were staying in Plantation, FL. They also had the brochures on display in their lobby. So we called up and made reservations right away since were were to be in the area only for a couple of days because my wife needed to be back at work on Monday (we checked in on the prior Thursday). When we arrived at the marina at which the cruise boats were docked, we were pleasantly surprised by how nice everything was. Parking was easy and reasonably-priced at a nearby municipal multi-level garage. Then a short walk to the Marina proved to be a pleasant experience with lots of local restaurants and small stores along the way. The Riverfront boat itself was beautiful and comfortable. It was a short wait to board the tour boat for our cruise. Were were helped on board by a very courteous and professional staff. The cruise itself was approximately 1 to 1.5 hours and proved to be fantastically interesting and enjoyable! Our every need was handled gracefully and again, professionally, by the excellent and knowledgeable staff. All of our questions were immediately and easily addressed as well. The tour narration was extremely interesting and the scenery was also beautiful. We will do this one AGAIN whenever we return to this area. This will be a priority! This tour is something that we HIGHLY recommend to anyone and everyone to do! Was also very relaxing. The cabin was air conditioned and comfortable and also very CLEAN!
