    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Make your way to Hollywood Beach to join us on this luxury cruise of the city’s scenic riverfront. After posing for a souvenir photograph as you board the boat, stake out a prime viewing seat upstairs on the observation deck or in the air-conditioned dining room with picture windows. Relax and take in the sights as the boat departs the port to begin the journey. Broward County is Florida’s second-most-populated county, with a variety of stunning homes, mansions and yachts. In recent years, Fort Lauderdale has distanced itself from its notorious spring break reputation and is now known for its relaxed coastal lifestyle and swanky properties.

We were there pre-COVID in February. A very relaxing and informative cruise. Smooth ride. Helpful staff. Be aware, if you have anyone with walking issues that you need to climb up some stairs when the tide is high.
