The Basics

The Riverwalk area, frequently described as the "Venice of America" by locals and visitors, consists of a park, shops, restaurants, nightlife, and a movie theater, making it a popular destination for strolling, eating, and catching some outdoor entertainment. The complex also includes big attractions such as the Stranahan House, the Broward Center for Performing Arts, the Museum of Discovery and Science, the Florida Grand Opera, and Esplanade Park.

There are several ways to explore the Riverwalk, including walking tours, Segway tours, or sightseeing cruises with operators such as Jungle Queen Riverboat. Those boat rides will cover the Riverwalk, as well as glimpses of Millionaire's Row, a stretch of luxe houses and their attendant mega yachts that runs from Tarpon Bend to the Intracoastal Waterway.

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.

4-Hour Day or Night-Time Reef Bottom Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale
We had a great time fishing! It was a fun way to get introduced to deep sea fishing. The crew was patient, friendly, and helpful. They even cleaned the fish and provided ice for us to keep it in until we had dinner. We had an enjoyable time and would come back again.

90-Minute Snorkel & Seabob Underwater Guided Reef Tour in Fort Lauderdale
highly recommend booking this. the staff was extremely friendly and our tour guide, Pegay, was very attentive and helpful. The entire experience was made thanks to him. They take you out to three reefs for 90 minutes in a group of six. Basically a steal for the amount you pay.

Our families had a great time, very relaxing and restorative. The kids loved the tour and being able to swim in the sandbar. Kevin, our captain, was very friendly, conscientious, enthusiastic and accommodating — highly recommend his tours!
