A Pleasant Outing... but nothing special

The boat tour was an okay way to spend a couple of hours. The ship pictured was not the ship we sailed on, so to sit on the upper deck, there was no shade. The tour of the "Venice of the South" was not nearly as extensive as I had hoped, due to the size (large) of the boat. I had thought more canals would be visited. Far too many references to Wayne Huizenga, previous owner of the Miami Dolphins and numerous properties on the tour. His name was mentioned as often as all other property owners combined. We began to wonder if he was the owner of the tour company.

Many of the homes and yachts we saw were fascinating. Staff was pleasant. The captain/tourguide would be better served by a head-set microphone instead of a stationary one as his voice would fade in and out depending on where he was looking and some narration was lost. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours, but nothing special.

We did the 0300pm cruise --there is air conditioning on the first level but you can go to the top for open air--they had a snack bar with popcorn, hot dogs, pretzels, sodas and some alcoholic beverages as well--staff were nice and friendly and the speaker was funny as well as informative

I live in Florida (from DC, in FL eight years now) and I had my Mother and her best friend in town. We all went (per a friend who has been on the cruise twice already and is a local) and had a blast. I have lived here eight years and learned new things and it was great for my out of town Mother. It is NOT touristy tacky at all and the staff is WONDERFUL!!!!

This was the second sighting seeing cruise my wife and I took while staying in beautiful Fort Lauderdale. The Carrie B was undergoing repairs so Carrie B Cruisies loaded us on the Lady Lucille. The Lady Lucille is a luxury dining charter yacht. It has three levels, two of which are enclosed and air conditioned. My wife and I were on a sightseeing tour so we opted to sit on the open third level. The enclosed levels are not recommended if you want to take good pictures. Tinted glass would mess up any shot. The enclosed levels are best suited for those who don't want to get wet or hot.

Very informative tour when we could hear the speaker. Top deck only has a speaker towards the front of the boat, so sitting in the back is not the best place if you want to hear what the guide has to say. (If you have snot nosed little children please control them and shut them up or stay away from public places!)

We received more information from this tour than the Duck Tours, but some of the information was conflicting or completely different. While on this tour we also saw the Duck Tours break down in the middle of the water. Would have to say the Carrie B operates a more reliable ship.

Things we saw: Mansions of the rich, famous, and greedy. Lots of them. Yachts of the rich, famous, and greedy. Lots of them. The port and a giant cruise ship. All and all a good time. Great for couples and old folk. Keep the kids at home or take them on something more conducive for their enjoyment and the others around them.

enjoyable afternoon

Ride was on a substitute boat for the Carrie B, which did not have much shade outdoors so we spent most of the trip inside which wasn’t the experience I was expecting. Overall, it was an enjoyable afternoon for 4 adults.

The cruise was a great look around at the homes of the super-rich and their fabulous yachts parked right outside their doors! The captain provided lots of background about the owners, and interesting history of the homes and the harbor area. For what we got, the price was a bargain!

Loved It!

Didn't go on the Carrie B but another boat owned by the same people. It was so much fun to see the mansions and hear some history about the owners and look at the yachts. Overall the perfect amount of time of an hour and half long enough to see it but not too long and inexpensive and a fun sightseeing experience.
