Beautiful Day on the water!
Sun, Jul 27, 14   11:00 AM Mare03 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
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

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

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!

Great Tour on the water
Mon, May 19, 14   5:00 PM Conzelman Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
A group of girlfriends and I were visiting from Philadelphia. We were looking for a boat tour and came across thing one. Prices were reasonable at $23 a person after the service fee. We went on the late afternoon 5:00 tour.

The captain was the person who spoke during the tour as well. You can tell he does this many times a day because he was a bit monotone but the information was pretty good. I would have liked to know more about some of the sites and history, but I understand the tour is just for oogling at millionaire's homes.

All in all, I would recommend this. Its a nice afternoon on the water and the banana daqcuiri was delicious! My friend's and I had fun and we all ended up buying the souvenir photo at the end.

Some out of town friends were visiting and I thought it would be a great way to introduce them to Fort Lauderdale. They really enjoyed seeing how "the other half lives" and also were able to appreciate why our beloved city is the Venice of the Americas. I love to show off our beautiful city and will continue to use this tour as a great introduction

Very pleasant and enjoyable boat cruise. Captain clearly described the celebrity homes it was very interesting. My family and I enjoyed it very much and such a reasonable price for a lovely 1 1/2 hour relaxing cruise of the fort Lauderdale Venice of America Tour.
