Good overview of waterfront Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Ticket checkin person not the most welcoming!!! Service of vessel should have been done BEFORE time to board. We shouldn't have to wait around for an oil change - surely this is a routine service for the craft.

Other than that, a pleasant way to show visitors the waterfront area for an hour and a half.

The tour was nice and informative, but we didn't appreciate the 'mandatory' photo at the beginning of the cruise.

We tried to decline politely, but were told that they 'HAD' to take our picture. The photographer then remarked that he wouldn't bother to try to take a good one and then we wouldn't want to see it. The time it took to take the pictures also kept us out in the hot sun.

Disappointing Tour

The tour and crew were fine. It was the tour guide that made the tour terrible

He was rude to us when we were getting on the boat.

His presentation during the tour was boring and didn't

Feel he was very informed. Because we were traveling with kids

We had done the Duck Tour several days before and would highly recommend them

Over this tour. I felt it was a waste of time. The announcer needs to get a new job.

It was obvious he didn't like what he was doing.

View of how the 1% lives

We enjoyed the tour of the harbour and parts of the intercoastal. We thought we would see more homes on the waterway and less of the shipping area. The homes and boats (yachts) were incredible. The captain was very knowledgeable about local famous residents and their lifestyle, but was a bit jaded. Definitely recommend to see the decadence of some.

An interesting and informative cruise.

Whenever we visit Fort Lauderdale with friends or family who are in the area for the first time, we take them on the Intracoastal River Cruise. It is a very pleasant way to spend an hour and a half on a sunny day, with views of lizards lounging on the rocks along the shore and the possibility of sighting Florida's state marine mammal, the manatee. It is also quite the eye opener in terms of how the wealthy live - beautiful (and some not so beautiful) homes, many of which appear to be uninhabited, and boats of the uber-rich line the shores of the Intracoastal, including Steven Spielgerg's $200 million yacht, the Seven Seas. We usually take the last cruise of the day in order to enjoy the beautiful sunset!

This is a great way to see Fort Lauderdale and have a wonderful day on a boat with your family. We had 3 generations of family members from teenagers to grandparents and everyone enjoyed the tour!
