Fort Lauderdale stands out as an amazing place to visit. It has miles of sandy beaches, palm trees, the Everglades, the Riverwalk, and a myriad of lovely restaurants and a healthy nightlife. You can spend your days meandering through art museums and sunbathing on the beach. Evenings can be spent enjoying an opera or catching a film at the AutoNation 3D Imax Theater.

As much as there is to do in Fort Lauderdale, it is still a fairly young city. In 1893, Frank Stranahan moved to what was then The New River Settlement. He was the first permanent resident and created the first ferry service on New River.

Life has changed a lot since then. Settlers of the area built various canals, and now there are over 300 miles of intracoastal waterways in the Fort Lauderdale area. The vast amount of waterways in Fort Lauderdale has earned it the nickname “The Venice of America.”. In the Venice of America, you can explore the waterways using ferries, paddle boats, or party boats, where you can see much of the city.

One of the best ways to enjoy the waterways in Fort Lauderdale is in a party boat.

There are party boats for every occasion and every group size. You can have a great bachelor or bachelorette party as you float down the canals. We even let you bring your own food and drinks! Party boats are also a great choice for family reunions. You can go from having fun on the boat to taking a dip in the canals to cool off, giving every family member some activity they will enjoy.

Our boats offer many benefits over other modes of exploring the waterways. They are easy to get on and off, so you can easily drop anchor and take a dip. The open sides mean you can have a perfect view of the sights around you, allowing you to truly enjoy the wonders of nature all around you. Sunset party boat cruises are ideal for a romantic evening. Seating on the boat makes for a comfortable trip, and our boats have shade covers.
