Great Tour

One amazing tour. The only thing more amazing was the price. Beside the inexpensive cost of the tour, they even had a complimentary bar on the boat. I would highly recommend the tour for anyone visiting Fort Lauderdale.

It was a beautiful day down Fort Lauderdale River. The crew was great. We all had a great time, and would do it again with other family members.

Venice of America
Sat, Jun 9, 12   5:00 PM Westielover Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
Took the river boat cruise with my mother and husband and we thoroughly enjoyed cruising down the canals and viewing the multi-miilionaire's vacation homes. The captain was very knowledgable and shared the history of the homes with us. Most enjoyed going out to the port where we watched the Oasis of the Seas depart for a cruise. The boat we took was in very good condition and very clean. The downstairs was mostly indoor and air conditioned. There were a few seats outside in the front of the boat that were downstairs which was nice for my mother who is 92 and unable to go up the steps on the boat. We chose to sit in the front of the boat. Even though it was a warm day, the breeze made it comfortable to be outside. I highly recommend this boat and if we return another time for a cruise, we will use them again.

A Fun and Interesting Boat Tour

We enjoyed this 1 hour and 15 minute tour of the inland waterways around Fort Lauderdale. We sat on the upper deck in the front row, so we had an excellent view of both sides of the waterways. The captain provides an informative narrative with a few jokes thrown in for good measure. You'll get to see many gorgeous homes owned by famous people. The boat was big and stable and reasonably comfortable. On the day I went on the tour, their credit card systems wasn't working, so I'm glad I bought my tickets in advance through the Internet.

This was so much fun!!! My nephew and his girlfriend from California really enjoyed this waterway cruise! The staff was very friendly. Loved the narration! Complimentary drinks were really good. I can't wait to take my next out of town guests!!

We got this hot time from the Englishman at the check-in. The seats up front were the best! They had chairs with backs on them. The houses were beautiful and the Captain knowledgeable about who lived on Millionnare's Row.

A lovely way to spend an afternoon

Very informative and interesting. I've lived here for 25 years and I still can appreciate that area of Ft. Laud. Our friends are snowbirds and throughly enjoyed the cruise. They also learned alot about this area. I would definitely recommend it to others.

Captain is very entertaining. Boat is comfortable.

I really enjoyed the captain's stories of who owns what mansion/yacht and how much it cost. I wasn't expecting to learn as much as I did. He may have missed his calling as a stand up comic. The 1.5 hr length of cruise is perfect to get a feel for the waterway and went by fast. My young son was able to move around the boat, eat a snack at a table and use the washroom, which was convenient as those travelling with kids know. All of the crew was nice and helpful.

Nice tour but boring staff
Sat, Nov 30, 13   1:00 PM valigrlny Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
I was disappointed with the staff and lack of enthusiasm they had for the tour. We arrived 20 minutes prior to the scheduled tour as instructed, but even as it lightly started to rain they made us wait to board the boat until exactly 1pm, while my pregnant niece and 86 year old mother stood in the rain. They didn't greet us until 10 minutes into the tour and they promptly reminded us that tipping was ok. I really would have just preferred some background music rather than the boring, unanimated dialogue. Pretty views but awful staff
