Nice, but

The tour and commentary was great. It is much better than the Water Taxi, and our group really enjoyed it. However, the advertising states that there is a bar onboard and the price includes one drink. The tickets then have all liquor crossed off, so it appears to be a bait and switch or at the very least, cutbacks.

An amazing tour of the byways of Ft Lauderdale. Beautiful homes and other attractions on an affordable open air boat. Friendly and knowledgable crew.

Really enjoyed the tour - it was a nice way to get a quick "feel" for the area and spend a little time on the water. Our daughter (18 mo.) really had a great time standing on Mommy's lap up on the top deck with the wind in her hair... the 90 min. tour was also perfect for her relatively short attention span. :) Thanks!

Tour was good. Crew was exceptional. Did another tour with a bit more commentary, but this was informative. Was surprised that the 'real' cocktails had been eliminated.

This was a great experience for us. We visit the FT Lauderdale area a few times a year with our kids and thought it might be nice to see some of the sights via a boat. This trip was nice for a couple of reasons. One, the boat used was very clean and had plenty of room for my wife and I and two small kids. The kids could also enjoy the view on the upper deck (with the nice breeze and sunshine) or head to the first level which was essentially indoors. The crew was very nice and the information presented over the speaker system was very interesting. Being able to enjoy free beverages aboard was nice and the $10 picture taken of our family prior to climbing on the boat was a nice keepsake. Finally, the trip was only an hour or so, which was the perfect time for people with kids or even without so that you can enjoy the rest of the pier area after the tour (plenty of nice restaurant choices within walking distance). All in all, we recommend this boat tour.

Laid back and casual

We liked the tour. I thought the tour guide was funny and I loved how he invited us to partake in the free drinks and to interact with him. He made the tour a lot more leisurely than some other tours.

Tour is worth taking and affordable

The tour of the waterfront in Fort Lauderdale was fun and a good way to see the waterfront mansions and yachts. If this is of no interest to you, then you might want to skip it. At $20/ticket it's affordable and a decent price for 1 1/2 hours of entertainment.
