The boat ride was fun. Millionaire's row was impressive and the captain who lead the tour was friendly. The boat offers a snacks and a bar, Key Lime Margarita's rival any Mexican restaurant! A must see for tourists and locals alike!

Got a flyer about this intercostal cruise. Special family rate was advertised as 57 dollars for 2 adults and 2 kids. Got there, parked in the lot and walked over to the kiosk. Was told that rate is no longer. If getting you to the boat and squeezing over 25 bucks more is part of their business practice, we won't... More

Must say the boat ride was slow and easy and very relaxing. However when you tune into the narration, it's really very repetitive sad stuff about how evil progress is with all the buildings being torn down for high rises and the waste of time that the unoccupied summer homes are and the yachts are really expensive but never really...

We have taken this cruise several times in the past and quite enjoyed it. This time, we took some visiting relatives on the cruise and had a very bad experience. The boats all go on the same basic path passing the same mansions and points of interest. The tour is made special (or not in this case) by the narrator.... More

You can opt to sit on the top deck outside, or on the lower deck in the air conditioning. Drinks and snacks are offered for a price. Great narration by the captain of the huge mansions on the intercoastal. Very relaxing and enjoyable for people of all ages.

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.
