Very disappointed, we left key west early morning to make sure we arrived in ft lauderdale with enough time to check into our hotel and make the last boat trip of the day, this was to be the only attraction/outing we did in ft lauderdale as we were only staying one night. Before we set off in the morning I... More

First trip to Fort Lauderdale and found this trip to be very enjoyable and entertaining. The narrator was very informative and professional. Would recomend this to anyone wanting to see a different view of Fort Lauderdale.

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.

Yes you get to see a lot of mansions and huge boats so in that sense you get exactly what you paid for...you also get overflowing garbage from the night before...greasy filthy plastic chairs...a filthy bathroom (and yes I get that it is a boat bathroom but it only takes 10 minutes to disinfect it) you also get a cabin...

After reading negative reviews here about the Jungle Queen's "island of abused animals" we booked a Riverfront Cruises trip. Our captain was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We did buy the photo they snapped on our way in. It was definitely a highlight of our trip.

Took the boat trip at 1pm. Not very busy, so had good choice of places to sit. Great narration, telling us who owned which house, although being British, we hadn`t heard of some of them. Some fantastic properties and the boats were amazing too. We used a $3 coupon from the South Florida coupon book, but had to pay $2... More

We went with friends on a Fort Lauderdale Riverfront Cruise and had a great time. First of all, it is very casual and relaxing. If you have visitors from out of town, it is a good way to see a taste of the rich and famous in Fort Lauderdale. The boat ride takes almost 2 hours, there is a bar... More
