Intracoastal Waterway, Fort Lauderdale, FL

The Basics

Aside from serving as a means of transportation, the Intracoastal Waterway offers countless opportunities for recreation, especially in Fort Lauderdale's year-round sunshine. From classy dinner and sightseeing cruises to riverfront gondola tours, visitors can enjoy the water in whatever fashion floats their boat as they travel past forested coasts at Port Everglades; high-end real estate at the famous Millionaires Row; luxury resorts at Hyatt Pier; the drawbridge at the 17th Street Causeway; and the entertainment complex at the Las Olas Riverfront. Didn't pack your sea legs? The water-wary can opt for a walking or Segway tour along the coast, or even see the sights from above on a helicopter excursion over turquoise waters.

Awesome experience! So much fun
We really enjoyed this fishing trip. The mates were friendly and helpful and very considerate of the kids and getting them involved in the experience. They even let the kids reel in some fish off the back of the boat that the mates had caught. The inside of the boat was nice and cool to take a break. The captain was very informative. The mates cut up the fish so we could get it cooked at a nearby resturant. I will definitely be booking this excursion again when we come to the area.

Seven Isles of Fort Lauderdale Kayak Tour
Jerry was awesome and very knowledgeable of the area. Shared a lot of interesting information with us. If there was any negative at all, Jerry should learn to stop talking so much when people start talking amongst themselves. I had not seen my family for a year due to Covid and I could not get a word in between his curating.

4-Hour Day or Night-Time Reef Bottom Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale
Crew was the best! Please tip them!!!! Family had a good time. The boat wasn’t the most luxurious and there wasn’t any soap in the restrooms. I wish they had more sanitary options on board especially with COVID-19. So make sure you pack a little bag of hand washing soap, paper towels and hand sanitizer. No one wants to eat lunch or snacks with fishy hands. But other than that it was great.
