“Great day with Mike and Kent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

What a great way to spend an afternoon! Mike and Kent were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and did their best to make sure everyone had a great time. The snorkeling was great, as well. I'd highly recommend this attraction. We have gone twice - once on the snorkeling trip and once on the get-away trip and really enjoyed both trips. Complimentary snacks and soft drinks were available and you may also bring your own or buy beer and wine on board.

“Great trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We took a trip on the catamaran and it was awesome! The captain and crew were extremely friendly and we accidentally booked the wrong version of the trip (island excursion) but it was a really fun day! They even gave us vouchers for the next day because we got on the wrong one. It was really generous of them and I was very impressed by how they handled everything. I would definitely recommend this company for a fun day trip in Fort Lauderdale!

“Even a Cold Night Couldn't Dampen the Fun We Had During the Evening Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We happened to visit Fort Lauderdale during an unusually cold spell and we needed something to pick up our spirits. Although cold out, we decided to try the evening sunset cruise, knowing there would be no sunset on this cloudy night. Captain Kent and Mike were amazing hosts. As Kent navigated the catamaran through the Intercoastal, Mike told us about some astounding properties and yachts that made our highlight memory reel. As we entered the ocean, I half-jokingly asked if I could drive, fully expecting to be told "not possible" - but they said "ok". And what a thrill it was! Captain Kent taught me the proper sailing technique and I guided the cat well out into the ocean, while taking in the lit-up FLL coastline. I rejoined my group who had made some nice friends with the other passengers and we had a ball talking, laughing and drinking champagne. We took several fun pictures and really had a much-needed blast. Passengers are allowed to bring their own food/drink, so a group of four of us brought the equivalent of 2 bottles of champagne in pastic bottles! (I highly recommend this tip! - but also recommend being respectful of the boat and crew as they deserve it!) It really was a fun tour. And the marina is in close proximity to Los Olas Blvd where we were able to grab a nice dinner after the cruise. All-in-all, a great ride with great passengers, provided by a great crew. Give it a shot!

“Awesome Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

The on-line advance booking was very quick and easy. The staff were very friendly when we arrived. The boat was clean and beautiful. Even though there was only 4 passengers total, the staff gave us the full treatment! I would love to do it again! Both Mike and Adam operated the Catamaran very well and we had a great trip out on the water. They gave us Water Noodles and snorkel gear when we went swimming, and even set up a trampoline in the water. Awesome crew. Great day.
