“Great river cruise”
Review of Gondolas West

Gondolas West

Attraction details
Owner description: Gondolas Wests' M/V eCHO is a nearly silent 22' electric boat that cruises the back canals and rivers of beautiful Ft. Lauderdale. With a commitment to green energy, our tours are focused more on nature over noise. Come with us to see the wildlife that south Florida is famous for... Manatees, Great Blue Herons, Egrets and Osprey are only a few of the characters we will see on this unique cruise through the "Venice of America"

We lucked out and had the Duffy 22 Electric all to ourselves (my wife and I). The Captain was entertaining, he personally had experiences on some of the mega yachts seen in the marinas along the river and we even waved and said hello to Mr Wayne Huizenga, who was enjoying his river front patio (celebrity sighting). It is a fun way to see the river front, a bit of the Port of Fort Lauderdale and some amazing super yachts!

We had a PHENOMENAL time on our cruise with Chris on The Echo. I can't recommend this enough. From the great service to the wonderful cruise around the intercostal, it was all a blast. Do this on your next trip! Bring some snacks if you'd like and sit back and enjoy the ride.

Gondolas West provides an enjoyable visit to a part of Fort Lauderdale that can only be seen on the water. The architecture and landscaping are really wonderful. The boat is comfortable and quiet and Chris is a great guide.

We were going to take the evening cruise but decided on the 12:30pm since the weather looked clear. Captain Chris took us on an entertaining 2 hour tour. He was very charismatic and knowledgeable. My family and I had never seen the ICW so we were amazed at the beautiful homes and yachts. It's going to be hard to head back to Cleveland after seeing how the other half, (actually 1%), live. We will always remember this afternoon. As it turned out taking the 12:30 was a good call. At 2:30pm the thunder started and it poured for the rest of the day.
