The boat ride was nice but would have been better to have a live tour guide rather than someone's voice recorded and played on a loud speaker

Some friends were in town so and we decided to do a tourist thing. We found the Riverfront Cruise online. I thought it was really nice, with the exception of the boat not being very clean. We went to sit in the front seats and...More

While hanging out in fort lauderdale for the day, we decided to do this little cruise. So glad we did, it was very nice cruising by all the lovely homes on the water. The crew was fabulous, Really great way to spend 1.5 hours.

Ride itself was good. But the man at ticket booth kept complaining about so many tourists. Really? That’s what keeps these attractions going. Plus, can only pay by credit card, then a $2.00 fee is added with prior knowledge. Pick a different cruise.

Hard to get to due to construction but worth the effort! The captain gave great descriptions and historical references.

We purchased two tickets for a cruise last week, the directions took us to a construction site, tried calling, only a machine and you can’t leave a message. We missed the cruise, tried emailing for a refund and no response.

Granted we were last minute planning but made sure we were early enough to try to make the 5:00 tour. (Visited the website and then tried to call but you cannot talk to a person.). We paid to park only to find out the 5:00...More

We got to the location listed on the web site. Massive construction and an apparently vacant building. No sign of this tour exists. I called a number on their website and it was out of service. Walked along the water. It’s a nice area, but...More

Yes, there are bathrooms on the lower level. The boat goes slow and is easy to get around on.
