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.

Relaxing 😌 water ride!
Did not expect a tour during the taxi ride. That was a great plus! The various stops to restaurants & shops helped with not having to drive to the locations. Strongly recommend that everyone visiting Ft Lauderdale take a water taxi ride!

Shared Sportfishing Trip from Fort Lauderdale
Crew was very nice. Caught two large Amber Jacks, otherwise no bites on the trip. Our group was only myself, my husband, and only 2 others! Bring your own snacks, but there was a nice large cooler and fridge for storing drinks and food. I sometimes get seasick, but this trip was very pleasant. Only con- the boat wasn’t very clean inside, especially the bathroom.

4-Hour Day or Night-Time Reef Bottom Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale
As a group of 3, with about 25+ other people on board.. the captain along with the 'Mates' were attentive, helpful & informative. The 'Mates' work for tips so feel free to ask any and all questions or if you'd rather be left alone, they won't mind leaving you to catch you fish. You could see some fish in the water and was able to catch multiple different species. 4hrs is plenty of time on the charter. Don't forget your sunscreen and make sure to grab beverages before you leave!

Great guide. Fun trip. You see the sights, big boats, nature, and big homes. Would go again next time we come. Park away from and walk to. Parking is a touch expensive.

4-Hour Day or Night-Time Reef Bottom Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale
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.
