Absolutely great time and well worth the hour and a half to see the amazing mansions along the intracoastal and the unbelievable yachts. Buying the tickets in advance saves you some money, it cost $22.50 each and I'd do it again.

Booked this cruise to kill some time before a flight. It was very reasonably priced and lasted 1 1/2 hours. Saw some amazing houses and yachts and was just great being outside in the sunshine.

don't get me wrong, we had a wonderful time visiting these nice places and the boat was awesome. But the crew didn't say goodbye back to me when i hop off the boat. Come here if u wanna listen to all prices of all boats and residences, which in my personal opinnion was annoying and disturbing btw

The boat was confortable, good size. The guide could have spoken a little less fast as there were lots of people on the boat who were... More

Before we set off in the morning I... More

Great weather makes boat rides that much more enjoyable. Did not realize Fort Lauderdale had canals or so many rich people. Commentary was good, views were good. Price was reasonable.

It was a fun and relaxing tour. You get to see a lot of homes and yachts. On the way they tell you who owns it or what it's for sale for etc. it was quite fun and then always nice to be on the water.
