We had a great time on the boat, it was my mother's birthday so we wanted to do something different. The boat ride was relaxing and very interesting.

The family really enjoyed the cruise. It was relaxing to just sit on the top with a little sun and listen to the Captain talk about the local area. Easy to buy the tickets and check-in. Finding parking was a little difficult. We ended up on the wrong side of the canal, but worked out since we didn't have to pay for parking. Give yourself a little time to park.

Pleasant way to view billionaire's homes

Spent a pleasant hour-and-a-half touring the New River area. Our guide was able to tell us who owned many of the riverside mansions, but did sound a little like he'd done the cruise a few times too many. Played great 80s music throughout though, so still recommend it especially as it was a little cheaper than alternative river cruise companies.

Beautiful Day on the water!

The Venice of America Riverfront Cruise was a great experience! Viewing the stunning houses and yachts from the water was beautiful, and the captain's commentary was informative but also funny! It was a smooth ride and the breeze on the upper level was perfect. This is a great way to see some sights while in Ft. Lauderdale, and will give you an opportunity to take some nice photos to remember your trip. Definitely recommend this! A great value for the price!

A wonderful experience
Sun, Jul 20, 14   5:00 PM Stacyrosenar Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
We wanted to take a ride on a boat last Sunday. We attempted to board the Water Taxi at 15th Street Fisheries. The taxi was full and the boat captain was rude. After they left, I see a lovely vessel, that said Riverfront Cruises. This was my ah ha moment. From the moment we booked the tickets we LOVED LOVED LOVED the staff, the boat and the relaxing ride on the intercoastal. The boat has a bathroom, (water taxi does not) air condition (water taxi does not) snacks (water taxi does not) and friendly staff (water taxi DEFINATELY does not) Its affordable and a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

TWO THUMBS UP

Great experience! Used it for downtime!

My husband and I did this tour to fill our downtime in between our hotel checkout and flight departure. Very easy to get to and there are a few restaurants around it to eat at as well. Also parking garage has easy access and the cost is not too expensive. Enjoy!
