Needs to talk more

Did not speak very much, named a few homes that people owned and that was pretty much it. My cab driver told us more about the area than the "tour guide".

Great trip. The captain/tour guide was hilarious and informative. Great way to spend 1 1/2 hours.

My 15 year old son and I did this tour after finding it online. What a fantastic way to see the beautiful waterfront homes and incredible yachts in the Fort Lauderdale area. The tour guide was very good with a great sense of humour. I loved this experience and would do it again in a second. I would highly recommend this tour. Great stuff!

My wife, daughter and I enjoyed the tour. It was similar to one we took about 18 years ago, also in Fr. Lauderdale. The speaker for the tour was knowledgeable about what we saw and made for an interesting hour and a half.

Nice ride, but poorly narated by the crew

This was my third time onboard! Although the weather was nice, it has been poorly narrated by the crew. Very minimal description of the scenery was provided and he was talking so fast that we have missed most of it...

Wonderful way to see the IntraCoastal Waterway

I have taken this tour many times. Whenever family and/or friends come into town, this is a great activity to take them on. I always start with lunch at the Briny Pub or the DownTowner. Great restaurants, right on the river. Then we board the Riverfront Cruise, after getting our group picture taken, settle in with a refreshment to enjoy the scenery and the commentary. Just sit back and look at the beautiful homes, the waterways, the cruise ships and the fabulous yachts. The crew is friendly and informative. The tour takes about an hour and a half. Always seems too short. This tour and a ride on the Water Taxi is a must for anyone coming to the Ft. Lauderdale area.

Alot of fun!

My wife really wanted to go on a riverfront cruise while we were vacationing in Ft. Lauderdale so we picked this one. Zerve made it very easy to purchase our tickets in advance and redeem them at the ticket booth before boarding. Seating and amenities were good and we got to see alot of beautiful homes and mega yachts of CEOs, actors, and directors. We also got our picture taken before boarding and they print and frame your photo for $10. A great way to remember our trip. The only downside was that it was practically impossible to get a cab back to Ft. Lauderdale Beach after the cruise because the Riverfront Docks area are pretty void of buisnesses anymore.

Great Trip

My girlfriend and I took the day cruise and had a great time. The ride is rather relaxing and includes an unobtrusive narration of points of interests (e.g., houses, boats, etc). Although we were concerned that we were a bit younger than the average person on the boat, we still had an enjoyable trip.

Dave and Dana did an excellent job of finding gators, turtles and birds on the N. Fork of the St Lucie River in Pt. St Lucie, FL at our 1 p.m. tour on 2/20/2014. The national preserve is nice to see and great to know that it will be available for all generations.
