We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon and bought tickets at the dock. The boarding process was fairly quick. The cruise was nice and relaxing, even for a hot day. It was about the right amount of time as well. It was nice and very informative for the area. We had our young daughter with us, and there was plenty of... More

We recently pre-purchased our tickets for the tour and showed up over an hour early. The girl working the ticket booth didn't seem to have much idea as to how the business worked. I tried to find out where to stand to being to line up, so we could get good seats in the front. She said to wait in... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. We are sorry for the mis-communication you may have received while waiting to board the boat. We will make sure to discuss this with our ticketing staff. Boarding begins at the boarding ramp which is, of course the only way onto the boat although some people... More

We took A Riverfront boat cruise while visiting Fort Lauderdale. The only reason I am giving four out of five stars is because I feel like we could've seen a little more for the money - but overall it wasn't bad. It's relaxing and shaded - the lower part of the boat has restrooms, a bar, and is air conditioned.... More

Great way to spend a couple hours and see some expensive real estate and yachts. The Captain does a good job narrating, pointing out the owners and former owners of the waterside mansions and vacation homes...Lucy & Desi, Tarzan, lots of high end business owners, etc. Open air seating on top and closed in down below. Nice little bar on... More

We enjoyed seeing a different view of the intercostal. Loved seeing the amazing homes and hearing the commentary about the area. The boat boards 10 minutes early and left on the dot so don't run late.

This cruise in the canals of Ft Lauderdale is a great way to spend an afternoon and see lots of million dollars homes and yachts. The boat is a smaller boat and makes for a cozy atmosphere. The narration was informative and drinks and food are available in board. We really enjoyed it.

My family went on the cruise and really enjoyed ourselves. It was very relaxing and views amazing! The guide was entertaining and funny. I was thinking on going to the Queen Mary cruise but seeing some of the reviews about time share representatives being there and taking time to talk with you during the cruise, I chose this one instead....

Very relaxing way to see the homes along the New River and the harbour at Port Everglades. The narration was smooth and easy. Was just long enough to relax and enjoy the sights but not too long to get tired. Washroom was OK; needed a bit of work. Worth the fee.

This is a great way to see the Ft. Lauderdale intercoastal. The yachts and homes are unbelievable! Drink prices are reasonable, and remember to tip the crew on the way off.
