Fort Lauderdale Beach, Fort Lauderdale, FL

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.

Becky from St. Louis
We boarded our taxi at 10:15 and closed the day at 10:00! I’d say we got our money’s worth! Every time we got off, we didn’t have to wait very long for another one to come by. The hosts of every taxi were personable and very informative. It’s a great way to see all of the beautiful homes and yachts in Ft. Lauderdale and a great way to go to restaurants and shopping. Would highly recommend!!!

Fort Lauderdale Segway Tour
The learning process. I found it difficult trusting the machine but Solomon was an excellent tour guide making sure he kept an eye on me as well the rest of the group. Safety was paramount for him as well, I am encouraging everyone too do this tour.

My wife and I had a great time. The crew is a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the waters. We caught two sharks the day we went out. I definitely recommend and would happily go again!

Shared Sportfishing Trip from Fort Lauderdale
A lot of skill in this two man crew! Mick was amazing to watch working all the lines like he could do it in his sleep. Entertaining just to watch. But we got a lot more than that!! Caught an 8ft Lemon shark!! Cool as hell. Advice to others...layer up and take your Dramamine. Say hi to Mick for us and tip these guys. They work for it.
