Fort Lauderdale Beachfront Tours

Fort Lauderdale Beachfront
Thanks to more than 23 miles (37 kilometers) of pristine sand, visitors to the Fort Lauderdale beachfront are spoiled for choice when it comes to water sports and sunbathing spots. Spend the day swimming, windsurfing, deep-sea fishing, or more—or stay on land playing volleyball, jogging, or just kicking back in a lounge chair.

The Basics
Lined by a wave wall and promenade, Fort Lauderdale’s coastline boasts six different beaches along with an abundance of shops, restaurants, and nightlife options. Check out family-friendly Deerfield Beach, trendy Fort Lauderdale Beach, and adventure-focused Hallandale Beach, where you can book boat and fishing charters.

Also along the beachfront, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park—known as Fort Lauderdale’s “Central Park”—features a freshwater lagoon popular with kayakers, cyclists, and fishers. And if you’re a scuba diver, head just north of Fort Lauderdale to the small town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Fort Lauderdale’s beaches are less hectic than Miami’s, making them a popular destination for families and those looking for a quieter scene.
  • Fort Lauderdale is an easy day excursion for cruise passengers arriving at or departing from nearby Port Everglades.
  • There are no fees to access the beachfront.

How to Get There
The Fort Lauderdale beachfront is located between Palm Beach and Miami, along Florida’s Atlantic coastline. You’ll find Deerfield Beach and Pompano Beach in the north, and Hollywood and Hallandale Beach in the south. Rideshares, water taxis, and the bright yellow and red Sun Trolley make getting around fairly easy.

When to Get There
Expect the biggest crowds in Fort Lauderdale from December to April, when many people from the north flock to the area; this is also when you’ll experience the most pleasant weather. Hurricane season is from June to the end of November, so plan your trip accordingly.

Why You Should Visit Las Olas Boulevard
In downtown Fort Lauderdale, Las Olas Boulevard is replete with restaurants, bars, galleries, and shops, making it a go-to place for travelers and residents alike. Water taxis are readily available there, and are a scenic way to explore the city’s waterways. Just east of the boulevard, Las Olas Beach tends to be more crowded than Fort Lauderdale’s other beaches.

Private 4-Hour Inshore Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale

Private 4-Hour Inshore Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale

star-5
This Private Small Group 4-Hour Inshore Fishing Charter is perfect for those light tackle fishermen who prefer staying on the inshore waters, rather than going out to the deep sea. On our inshore fishing trips, we fish around the bridges, fish cleaning docks, jetties that line the inlet, mangrove trees and other spots that we like to fish. Target species are Jack Crevalle, Barracuda, Tarpon, Snook, Sharks, Goliath Grouper and more. We generally try to use light tackle to catch these fish. The nice thing about fishing the Intracoastal Waterway is that the ocean is always calm, even when it is windy, so you don’t have to worry about seasickness. While there is more variety to be caught fishing offshore Fort Lauderdale in the deep sea, there are many species that can only be caught in the shallow waters of the Intracoastal Waterway. Day trips tend to be best for action, night trips may lack in action but may yield the elusive silver king AKA tarpon.
