So many amazing ways to enjoy the intracoastal waterway. We had super fresh (obviously) seafood in several waterfront restaurants, took a boat ride before deep sea fishing and just enjoyed the peace & quiet. Still plenty of options for quaint boutiques & upscale shopping as well as night life!

In December, take the inter-coastal waterway taxi in the evening to see all the Christmas lights along the waterway. It is not too cool and a great way to sight see. The taxi staff gives a good commentary of the houses and yachts seen.

The drawbridge is an excellent example of engineering genius and provides easy access to and from the Atlantic ocean.

Take the Water Taxi. It's fun, a bit expensive, but worth the trip for the tales of celebrities who own, may own, or absolutely never owned homes in Ft. Lauderdale (i.e., Lucie Arnaz has repeatedly refuted claims that Lucy and Desi owned a home on the Ft. Lauderdale Intercoastal Waterway, but it is still mentioned on this tour). You might... More

Interesting system of marine transport along our coastlines - the harbor boat tour will tell you lots about it - I enjoyed seeing all the industrial cranes, cruise ships and even swanky homes and gardens along the way.

Wonderful views, it is a show everytime the bridges go up and down, the view over the intracoastal is better than over the beach.

Come out and play in the sun and salt(ish) water! Enjoy a boat ride or dine waterside, either way, the intracoastal is a great spot to enjoy!

This waterway is like the New River to those of us blessed to have been born here in Ft. Lauderdale. We have used it to hit the inlets for fishing and to stop at all the spots. This great waterway travels the west coast to the east coast, but know where like Ft. Lauderdale. Use it, but please observe all... More

This thing is massive and quite impressive. We spent several hours sitting outside of our hotel just checking this thing out. Seems like overkill, but whatever. It's cool!

We actually did a boat tour through the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale. It was a beautiful and interesting attraction, seeing all the ships and tugboats that were coming through. We got to see the bridge lift open and close allowing some ships to come through. The captain explained what was happening, and gave us some history on many of... More
