Overall an average tour, nothing special, all of them there are the same. I took it a couple of years she and was reasonably satisfied. This year however they got a new stuff and one person was so bad. I didn't want my pictures taken before we boarded, he not only made me do it, he said he would put... More

Although the regular vessel was out of service for inspection, the substitute vessel was very nice. Parking downtown was easy, with quick access the riverfront dock. Although we had some cool, windy weather, it was a pleasant tour with the captain giving us running commentary pointing out highlights. I thought the tour length was just right. Lots of fabulous homes... More

A pleasant tour of the Ft. Lauderdale waterways. Captain gave running commentary of houses and ships. Keep ticket and pay $5 for all day parking. After tour walk on the riverfront to the historical museum (leave ship, turn left and cross the railroad tracks) or to the Stranahan house (leave ship, turn right, and follow riverfront along Las Olas Blvd)...

The trip got off to an inconspicuous start, as I couldn't even get anybody to sell me tickets until the boat was ready to leave the dock. Although, we were there an hour early! When I asked a crew member when the tickets would be sold I was told in a little while. The multi-million dollar homes and the 100-300... More

We chose to do the Riverfront Cruise and thought it was very nice. The boat was in good condition, the employees were friendly and the captain was very informative. I wish it would have lasted a little longer but other than that it was great.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the beautiful homes along the new river. The captain gave an interesting commentary on the homes, manatees, yachts as we passed by. Snacks and photos (as you board) are available for sale. If they had had hot chocolate we would have been thankful as it was a cold day. Parking nearby... More

Went today, Jan 27th Monday at 11.00am. Ticket purchase is from a sidewalk booth and parked the car in the Las Olas parking lot just a block away. The cruise was narrated by the Captain who was quite knowledgable about the ownership of the large waterfront houses and yachts. Steven Spielberg's yacht is one of the biggest in the world... More

This trip is well worth the money. We sat on the upper deck in the first row. We saw everything. The captain provided just the right amount of information to make the trip informative. The location was close to parking so it was easy to get to. The length of the trip was perfect, any longer and it would have... More

We had planned on taking the watertaxi that we heard of on-line, but we (and several other potential customers,) got fed up waiting for the watertaxi that never came. They had someone charter the watertaxi that was supposed to pick us up at 10:45, and after waiting and waiting for the boat that never came, I called the phone number... More
