We wanted to find something simple to do while in Ft Lauderdale, and this fit the bill perfectly. The cost was reasonable and the cruise was great. The announcer was very funny but also very informative! Would go again!

Nice and relaxing and very interesting. So many beautiful homes with great stories and history. It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon. We sat on top in the front. Loved the view from there. We went with friends and then had lunch at a nearby restaurant on the water.

Not bad but not spectacular either. Quick cruise with narration. Cost was affordable, staff not overly friendly or warm. Just something we did to kill time before catching our flight.

Had some family in town for the weekend, and needed something fun that would be good for anyone 4 - 70+ years old. This was a great experience that everyone enjoyed. Thanks to the Captain and the crew. They were all friendly, fun and helpful, and the boat and facilities are clean. It was a relaxing and nice way to... More

Tried to go on this tour Wednesday of last week. Bought the tickets and ended up paying $50.86 I think it was. We boarded at 10:50 am and by 12pm we still hadn't departed. Boat was due to leave at 11am. There was "battery trouble" and 3 mechanics and engineers couldn't fix the problem. We were then told the issue... More

Expensive for the cruise time. Friendly staff. I was expecting more. You can get better service for this price. Plastic chairs to seat... Not comfortable.

Next time I would choose the smaller Gondola boat tour. The Riverfront Cruise was a bit boring. The narration was piped in and sometimes it did not align with the points of interest. The only time there was a live voice was when they announced the bar downstairs where you can purchase soft and hard drinks and they announced this... More
