Beautiful Day for a Boat Ride

My friend and I traveled to FL from TX for a quick little getaway. This tour was a last minute decision and one we definitely do not regret. It was a beautiful day to be out on the water! The information provided on the tour wasn't all that unique...it's really a bunch of rich people live in these houses or own these yachts, but it was still a lot of fun and we enjoyed ourselves very much! On board bar was a plus for us as well!

lovely time on the water

We were very fortunate that the weather was perfect. I wanted to show visiting friends the beauty of our area without the hassle of going out on a friends' boat. Great choice. Good overview of our waterfront. Commentary both informative and entertaining. Just the right amount of time to allow us to do other things too. Good value.

My husband and I really enjoyed the cruise, I'm originally from ft lauderdale and haven't been back in over 10 years! It was nice to get a tourists view! Noticing how some things change and a lot of things stayed the same! Bigger houses bigger boats!!! Lots more money! It was a nice afternoon.

Leisurely, fun tour to see cool stuff!

My husband and I decided to take the 5 pm tour on a cloudy day - and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! We sat at the top, front of the boat so it felt like we were on a private cruise. The captain had great stories about all the landmarks and it was so neat to see the giant houses and yachts and hear the stories behind them. Drinks and snacks were a little overpriced, but what you expect for a touristy gig. And the convenience of having them on the boat was GREAT! I highly recommend!

Moderate experience

The boat tour was not very good. The description was accurate, but I thought I would enjoy the tour more. The only information was about who owned the mansions and the boats, very little about anything else. It just wasn't my bag.

The worst part was that the captain dumped the recycling bin into the garbage at the end. I did not appreciate the misrepresentation that the boat would recycle when that was not true. I normally would tip service people, but the staff were so blatant in their request for tips that it made me feel uncomfortable and did not tip for this reason.
