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.

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.

Open Bar was the best idea. Our family from Connecticut LOVED the Fun.

It was a great group activity and the perks were amazing as well!! I had a wonderful time sightseeing and enjoying a lovely day cruise with friends. I would have liked for it to be longer but other than that the cruise was great!!!

Good but could be better

They offer free drinks. Don’t get fooled, you will try first drink and will not ask for another. They are terrible. The worst beer I ever had (was poured from pitcher and not very cold). No one try a hotdog after all. The tour was pleasant. The captain must be bitter person because he was talking most of the time about money. The million dollars boats and millions dollars homes. Not all the time realistic. Nothing really educational. Will be nice to learn about the rivers the water, the species living there. Or just history of that area we were cruising. The boat was nice and clean.
