Fun Trip viewing beautiful Ft. Lauderdale

My husband and I took a 3PM trip and really enjoyed ourselves on the open upper deck. Even though it was a very hot day we were completely comfortable on the top deck (although there is an air conditioned main deck if you prefer). The captain narrated as we went along, pointing out landmarks and houses of the rich and famous. It was a beautiful ride, we enjoyed the commentary, staff was pleasant, ordered tickets over the phone which worked fine. The also serve sodas, beer and wine included. Pleasant 1 1/2 hour trip and we believed good value for the money. Would definitely recommend.

Everything excellent but if the driver wants to make comments he need to learn to be more positive.

We were looking for an activity that we could do with our visiting relative. I came across this on another website and then fortunately found Zerve's website. We saved HALF PRICE by booking with Zerve! It was so easy to book with Zerve and print out our reservation. This tour was well worth $10 per person!!!!! We had a wonderful time on board. The Captain was entertaining and we liked his style of oration. In fact, all the staff were very attentive and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised that the drinks on board were very good... and even the hot dogs were good! We plan on returning soon as this is a great way to spend a day when you are wondering what to do with a free afternoon.... with or without visiting family. And believe me... I will definitely be booking it with Zerve!

Nice short excursion

If you are short on time or attention span, this is a great way to get a feel for Ft. Lauderdale from the water! At 1.5hrs, we learned enough to share memorable info and details with friends, had an appreciation for the intracoastal area, and an enjoyable afternoon. The captain narrating used just the right mix of odd details, historical anecdotes and sarcasm to keep us laughing and intrigued by what we were seeing. The open bar was a plus too! I'd def recommend this tour.

Cruise the Backyards of the rich and famous

Comical and factual lecture on historic and modern homes along the causeway and river. A broader view from the upper deck of the Riverfront Cruise boat than the water taxi view at sea level and you're done in 90 minutes!

Great informative review

We were pleasantly surprised on the tour... great information ... great speaker on the boat...

I especially enjoyed the information on the home owners along the tour and since I started my career with Phillips 66, I really enjoyed seeing the old Pier 66 that Phillips 66 had built and the information given about that particular building also ... I would recommend this tour for everyone.

Where do you take an 88 year old on his birthday? The venice of america tour . He really enyoyed the history and all the scoop on the mansions and who owned them. The crew and the yacht was wonderful.
