“This Boat Cruise Was Excellent!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

My wife bought a special (~2 hour) cruise deal with an area cruise boat we had never even seen before this occasion..This is a good-sized sailing catamaran docked off coastal Fort Lauderdale, Fl. (very near the famous strip).The crew was 2 guys named Mike & Keir...Both were super-nice and really hospitable and professional to boot!! The boat, The Spirit of Lauderdale, was comfortable, smooth; and the cruise went out to the ocean and also sailed on the New River of Ft. Lauderdale, etc. The crew pointed out many homes of famous folks, which was quite interesting as well! We would recommend this ride to anybody!

“First time Fun!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My boyfriend and I went on a sunset cruise for the first and it was the best time! The two gentlemen in charge Kent and Adam were most definently personable & outgoing. We got perfect weather and a beautiful sunset! I could've stayed out longer than 2hrs, it was peaceful & relaxing. My boyfriend and I are locals and we felt as if we were on a vacation. I would do it again and recommend it for anyone!

“Great time! Great Boat and Great Crew!!!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We booked the "Sail, Splash & Snorkel" and had a wonderful time! The "Spirit of Lauderdale" is a great boat for families, or any age. The kids had a blast laying on the nets watching the water go by, swimming off the coast, going down the slide and jumping on the trampoline! Kirk and Adams are tons of fun and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family! See you next time guys!

“Great time!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

My boyfriend and I went on the sunset cruise this evening out of Ft. Lauderdale and we had a great time! The two fellows running the show Mike and Keer were excellent and very personable. Keer frequently asked passengers if they were having fun and if they needed anything. Mike had a great sense of humor too.

We will definitely like to do this again.

“First class cruise”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Amongst the many boats in Fort Lauderdale’ Bahia Mar yacht center, you will find the catamaran for Tropical Sailing cruise. We went on the Island Getaway and Beach Adventure that departed just after noon. The captain was extremely courteous and knowledgeable narrating to the tour group with interesting facts about homes on the intracoastal waterway. We learned about the celebrities and entrepreneurs that spent time in the area. We caught some sun while enjoying snacks and drinks before arriving at John U Lloyd State Park. Our tour group was on our own to explore this pristine beach for an hour before setting sail back to the harbor. The state park beach is what much of Florida was like before mass development took over. It was great socializing with others from various locations while living the good life for the three and a half hour excursion. We highly recommend this and hope to go on another Tropical Sailing trip sometime.
