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.

My husband and I both enjoyed this tour. We had great weather. 75 and sunny complimented the frozen drinks we bought on the boat perfectly. ;)

We were four - two from out West, and they enjoyed the experience, as we did. We have done this before, but our Captain was a hoot, so made it even better.

Relaxing, but nog big things to see

A relaxing boat tour on the canals of Fort Lauderdale, however no bigger sights to see and the tour could have been shortened quite a lot. However since quite cheap it was ok, men it is not worth more money than that.

Far surpassed what we expected. The boat wasn't too large or too crowded. The narration was informative and fun. An excellent experience on a lovely afternoon.

Beautiful Tour, Well Worth the $ and the 1 1/2 Hrs

We had a beautiful day so being on a calm boat outside looking at the amazing mansions and yachts of Fort Lauderdale was terrific! Very reasonably priced at $22.50 each and the amount of time was perfect. I'd definitely recommend this on a nice day for almost any age except perhaps small children. I'd go again next year.

Just ok

I was disappointed with how little we saw and realized the water taxi is the more economical route to take. I thought seeing the area past the bridge and the convention center was a total waste of time.
