“Great time, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

We chose the evening dinner cruise and were not disappointed. The cruise down intercostal waterway and seeing the expensive homes was nice. The captain was informative and we interacted with several of the homeowners. We then went to the private island for BBQ. There was tons of food; bbq chicken, ribs, rolls, steak fries, coleslaw, dessert and drink. There was a show afterward and the chance to walk around and see the various birds and animals in their enclosures before returning to the boat for the ride back. If dinner is not possible, I would suggest taking one of the afternoon cruises for a better chance to see these gorgeous homes.

“cancelled at the last minute”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

hotel staff raved about this cruise company. we booked and was not informed that the cruise was cancelled until we got to the ticket window 30 minutes before the supposed departure time! we said that we're flying out the next day and wanted a refund. they insisted we rescheduled some other time OR to stop by again before we go to the airport! ridiculous!

“Touristy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Very touristy but it's still a fun to see some of the mega-mansions and learn something of some of the owners. It's a good way to show the best side of the city. It is a very gentle ride, as the boat stays on interior waterways, not on the choppy ocean.

“An enjoyable afternoon on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Due to unsettled weather I decided to take the opportunity to go on the three hour afternoon trip? It was well worth the nineteen dollars ninety five and very interesting to see the massive homes and yachts on the intercoastal waterway. The captain provided a well informed commentary throughout. The trip had a short stop over at Jungle island where snacks can be purchased and we watched alligator wrestling? All in all a fun afternoon.

“Fabulous Houses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

This allows you to get up close to some of the best houses in South Florida...they explain who owns some of them...I felt sorry for some of the homeowners who get this visit everyday...but enjoyed the trip immensely.
Good way to see the waterways down there.
