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.

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.

Seven Isles of Fort Lauderdale Kayak Tour
Overall, it was a good trip. However, for the price, I was expecting a bit more narration during our tour. Our tour guide, Wes, did narrate things here and there but it didn’t feel like a proper narrated tour. Overall, still had fun.

4-Hour Fort Lauderdale Sailing Charter
What an incredible day. We we looking for family time to reconnect with cousins that we haven’t spent time with in almost a decade. Ages 21-56. Captain Charlie made us feel at ease to be ourselves. We had the most spectacular time. We laughed, bonded and created memories that will last forever. We will certainly spend time with him on the Daffy again!
