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.

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.

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.

Pricey but worth it!

Seven Isles of Fort Lauderdale Kayak Tour
Howie was a very knowledgeable tour guide. There was never a dull moment and our family of 4 had a great time (all adults in single kayaks). I loved that they give you water before heading out (you're gonna need it!). You do have to wear a lifejacket. 2 hours was a perfect amount of time. We were deff tired afterwards but the paddle overall wasnt too bad at all. A little too pricey, but still highly recommend!

4-Hour Fort Lauderdale Sailing Charter
My family & i LOVED daffy the sail boat & charlie our captain is a beautiful soul as well. the only thing i’d have changed about the tour is having gone snorkeling but the water was way to rough & he cant control that so i don't think its fair to give him anything less than an amazing review. we loved the humor of him, the seating, the beautiful scenery. this is definitely an experience you WONT forget !

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The waterway offers activity options for every type of traveler, from families to the adventurous solo explorer.

  • Book tickets for higher-end tours in advance, as limited-passenger options fill up more quickly than less exclusive tours.

  • Be sure to bring plenty of sun protection and dress for sunshine and ocean breezes.

  • Waterside restaurants are generally casual, but travelers should dress to impress at the fine dining establishments.
