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!

Take an annual trip to Ft Lauderdale in Feb, always take a city cruise as there is so much to see, and every time you find something new, have tried just about all of the tours offered by boat, found this one enjoyable and informative, but have taken other city boat tours where we got much more information, still welll worth the cost and time. nice boat.

The captain and crew were very friendly and courteous. The captain was very knowledgeable and his commentary about the sights was very witty and engaging. The crew was sincere and helpful. Will definitely do again.

We really enjoyed our ride. It was affordable, easy, and interesting to see the notable places on the waterways of Ft Lauderdale. Because of the temperature, the passengers were a bit crowded into the sunny part of the ship to stay warm, but aside from that we had a great time and would definitely go again!

The trip itself was very good, very well narrated and comfortable. However, upon getting on the boat, we were forced to have our photo taken, so it could be possibly sold to us at the end of the cruise. The photographer was very rude and said that we absolutely could not enter the boat without having our photo taken. People were lined up waiting while he took numerous photos. We finally agreed to a photo, but that was not a good experience. After that, everything was great.

The cruise was very nice. The narrative was informative and funny. The 5 pm cruise at this time of year gave you both the day view and the night view. Worth every penny!

Bought tickets for our family (my college age sons were in from out of town) so they could see Florida from the Intracoastal Water side. Thought this would be a nice, different tour of Florida off of land. They were bored to death. The Captain, probably very nice man, pointed out each famous/wealthy person' home over and over. There was nothing said about the intracoastal itself! My sons asked why and how was it made, and I didn't have an answer. The first mention of a mansion on the water was interesting, but that was the only thing ever talked about. It was boring. We didn't really care that so and so owned this house or that one. I was bored, everyone was bored. Maybe if they threw in some facts about Florida itself, how the intracoastal developed, how far you can go on it and where, etc, etc it may have been a little more fun. I won't take anyone else from out of town on this one again.
