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.

It was raining when we arrived at the ticket booth. The man who sold tickets told us that the cruise was cancelled because of lightning out on the bay. We were disappointed and left to tour the little mall nearby. After some time we spotted this same man, who came running after us. He told us that the captain had decided it was safe to take the boat out, and he did so with a group of people too small to really make it worth his while. We weren't disappointed, the trip was fun and informative. We also liked the open bar.

My wife had gone a similar tour with a different "line". They were excellent also, but too long. Maybe they have a shorter tour, but yours was JUST RIGHT. We found the staff friendly and attentive. Keep up the good work. Gary Powell

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.

Very Comfortable & informative

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.
