Overview
Enjoy the sights and sounds of Fort Lauderdale from the water on this 1.5-hour narrated cruise along the city’s riverfront. Learn about Fort Lauderdale’s famous marinas and piers from the canopied observation deck or inside the climate-controlled cabin. See the luxurious mansions and yachts along Millionaire’s Row, stretching from Tarpon Bend to the Intracoastal Waterway.
What to Expect
This cruise departs from downtown Fort Lauderdale. On the boarding ramp of the boat, pose for a souvenir photograph, then hop aboard and see what the city has to offer from the waterfront. Choose from the open-air, canopied observation deck or settle into the air-conditioned cabin. Either way, the views will be up close and incredible.

Enjoy this entertaining and educational 1.5-hour sightseeing tour of Fort Lauderdale from the city’s inland waterways. Beautiful homes, mansions and yachts — plus yards filled with palm trees and Roman fountains — line Millionaire’s Row. Float slowly past them and check out the marinas and piers as the tour continues.

There’s also something to be learned on this live-narrated cruise. Fort Lauderdale is no longer the spring break party destination it once was. Today, it’s known more for relaxed coastal living with high-end properties galore — a lifestyle for the rich and famous. The captain will talk about the celebrities, millionaires and billionaires who own these stunning properties.

Light snacks and nonalcoholic beverage options are available for purchase on board the boat.

Ok but not great

This was an interesting way to get an overview of Ft. Lauderdale from the water. They did provide free drinks in a cooler and the staff was nice. However, the boat that we were on was not as nice as what was pictured online. While...More

Great cruise and affordable!

The tour was nice and you even get free water / soda on board. As I said it`s affordable and fascinating.

Very Average

- Small boat with wooden bench style seats - The cruise lasts only about 50 mins vs. 1.5 hours claimed in the brochure - Will try to sell stuff through a raffle In short, look around you may find better options....

Was good but didn't like the "raffle prize" of Time Share vacation "opportunity!"

Boat wasn't as pictured as some other reviewers had mentioned- so upon boarding the pass/ticket agent mentioned the "drinks" were free to compensate for the smaller boat- not a big deal but just be warned at the time of this review, the boat I boarded...More
