Really enjoyed the cruise, very good commentary throughout the 90 mins. We had good weather, which made for excellent photos. Went on top deck but still plenty of shade from the sun. Well organised and would recommend to anyone visiting Fort Lauderdale.

Nice tour. Comfortable. However, comments from captain during entire tour made us feel very uncomfortable. Because people have made millions and have built mansions does not make them unamerican, or thieves, or even unworthy of their belongings. The comments were personal attacks on the rich and famous. We would have prefered a little more history and factual info instead of... More

This was a relaxing tour of the new river and intercostal waterway in Fort Lauderdale. The commentary told us who lived in many of the homes and pointed out highlights. Some would want more details and others would probably just want to sit back and enjoy the ride. We found this to be a decent tour for the price. The... More

Great relaxing way to have views of the many large expensive houses/holiday homes of the Area. Captain gave fair commentary of the famous owners of the very expensive houses and ant astir boats in the area.

This was a disappointment for me and most of my group of adults and teens. The guide wasn't able to provide a lot of relevant or interesting information about the extravagant properties and yachts on the tour route. There was more filler than substance. Many times we were directed to look at the decorated palm trees or reminded that many... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your trip. We try to make the narration as relevant as possible and in regards to Tiger's yacht, that boats come and goes every day, and we don't always add them to our narration. More

The trip was good for the price. It was a 90 minute tour that took you out from the New River into the Intercostal waterway. They pointed out many of the mansions along the river and who lives/used to live there. It was very informative and a good way to relax and see some of Ft. Lauderdale that you wouldn't... More

We really enjoyed the cruise. Good narration during the 90 minute tour. Great way to see the water view of Ft. Lauderdale. There is a bar and a restroom onboard. The deck chairs can be moved, which was helpful when it began to rain. We were able to move under cover without going downstairs. Clean and friendly.

Took taxi across town only to be told cruise cancelled, pretty unprofessional and no real explanation given. Not reliable use someone else if you want to cruise.

We're so incredibly sorry that you were not able to take the tour after your efforts to get to the docking location. We had experienced mechanical problems and for the safety of our guests, had to delay our tours. We are so very sorry again about this unexpected event. More

We took the Venice of America tour and got to see the new river of Fort Lauderdale and the mansions that surround it. Its was a 90 minute tour from about $23 per person and well worth it. A beautiful day.
