I took my 16 year old daughter and we both really enjoyed it. Between the multi million dollar homes and yachts, it was a whole new world. Strongly recommend.

A great family activity on the east coast. A 1.5h boat ride overlooking gorgeous multi million dollar houses. Highly recommend for anyone visiting this area!

Guided tour during this 90-minute cruise was very interesting. Saw homes owned or formerly owned by Sonny & Cher and Leonard Nimoy, as well as lots of successful business owners.

Always a pleasure to take this short cruise through the Ft. Lauderdale canals and rivers. Christmastime at dusk is the best so you can see all the lights.

A really informative and funny tour. Our captain told us many interesting thing about the area and houses with a lot of humor. As a foreigner we would have liked a Little more info about more internationally known owners of houses on the tour.

Booking the boat was easy to do online. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to the party boat. It was a beautiful day & the tour area was beautiful. The Captain was very knowledgeable of the area & he was very entertaining. Would definitely recommend this boat tour to other visitors.

The sound system was very poor making it hard to hear and understand what the captain was telling us about the places we were passing. There was a lot of emphasis on homes, their owners, and the prices but not anything about the environment or the importance of the waterways in the area.

We went on this cruise maybe 14 years ago when my daughter was little and remember really enjoying it so we went back again. This time was very disappointing. First the boat which is different from the one we took last time is very poorly designed for sight seeing you basically need to stand the whole time to see anything.... More

we were told once we boarded that the usual boat used had some engine problems therefore we were put on a different boat....it was very crowded and the seating was horrible. The tour itself was excellent, however the comfort of the boat was not good. Had I known that BEFORE our group of 11 paid and boarded we may have... More
