Cruising Fort Lauderdale waterways - charter or ticket, it's the best way to see the city

Sun Dream at Sunrise Boulevard
What better way to host a holiday party, a wedding or other special event than on a boat cruising Fort Lauderdale's beautiful waterways. It's also the best way to see the city. Some companies offer private party charters, others sell individual tickets that may include lunch or dinner.

Then there’s the Water Taxi, a basic service that runs day and night along the Intracoastal and New River with stops at restaurants and points of interest. For $20 one can hop on and off and ride all day, a bargain. Other ticket prices are available to get from one stop to another and return. 

Some companies below will host Valentine’s Day special cruises.
