very pleasant ride and lots to see on this trip, at a reasonable price, just a little over an hour. You get to see the boats and homes of famous people.

We walked along the Intracoastal at Birch State Park. There were plenty of walking trails and we watched the boats as well. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

Only $26. gets you all over the area all day on pontoon boats, some small, some large, with the crew giving you info on places you pass. You can hop on and off anytime at lots of stops, much quicker and cheaper than any other transportation. They call it the water taxi. Covers the whole intracoastal.

This was a highlight of our visit, both times. Most guides are excellent and provide lots of interesting information. Many stops make it very easy to get around and spend time where you choose. Loved the extended transfer to Hollywood Beach area.

I liked being on the water. That's fun. I liked seeing all of the different properties, but after awhile they all started to look alike. The yachts started to look alike. It was all just excess.

Toured with a small 6 person boat tour. It was really nice. The captain of the boat had fresh oranges to snack on. He explained all the beautiful homes and yachts. It was a 2 hour tour. Just remember there is no bathroom on board.

The jetty/water inlet used by the cruise ships and all watercraft provides an incredible front row seat to watching the enormous cruise ships, container ships, as well as all other floating vessels. Take a chair, your favorite beverage and get there by 4:30 to see a "show" that can't be beat.
