Top Fort Lauderdale Cruises, Sailing & Water Tours

Located on the Atlantic coast of Florida, Fort Laurderdale is home to an array of exciting water activities and excursions. Whether you’re looking to explore subtropical wetlands, lay on the beach, spot manatees, or enjoy good food and entertainment aboard a relaxing cruise, it can all be done in Fort Lauderdale. To help you plan your aquatic adventure in the city, here are some recommendations.

Water Taxi Journeys
It's possible to explore the city by water taxi, similar to a hop-on, hop-off bus tour. The taxi takes passengers along the "Venice of America" with the option to get off at 12 different stops along the waterfront. Stops include Beach Place Beach, Seville Street Beach, Las Olas Riverfront, Bahia Mar, and the 15th Street Fisheries. Best of all, your ticket allows you to get on and off the water taxi as many times as you want.

Riverboat Experiences
A popular experience for visitors, riverboat cruises take place along Fort Lauderdale's New River. Opt for a dinner and comedy show experience with an all-you-can-eat meal of barbecue ribs, chicken, and shrimp set aboard an old-fashioned riverboat gliding along with views of the city skyline, or a wildlife-viewing riverboat cruise with a stop at the Jungle Queen Indian Village to see monkeys, macaws, and colorful birds.

Airboat Adventures
Set right outside the city are the Everglades, a natural region of subtropical wetlands filled with wildlife, diverse landscapes, and unique ecosystems. Explore the area via an airboat cruise from Fort Lauderdale that will allow you to cruise along mangrove-lined waters to spot manatees, dolphins, and osprey and take in the natural scenery.
