Intracoastal Waterway Fort Lauderdale

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.

4-Hour Fort Lauderdale Sailing Charter
Captain Charlie was terrific with our 12 and 15 year old grandsons. He was teaching as we went along &, especially the older one, was thrilled to be able to actually perform activities on the boat. Our younger grandson got quite seasick & Capt. Charlie had strategies for helping him out! I would definitely recommend this trip!
