Intracoastal Waterway

The Intracoastal Waterway is very busy, everybody seems to have a boat. There are restaurants, hotels, multi million dollar homes, a lot to take in.

We had never sailed on American Cruise Lines before, and did not know what to expect - happily, we can tell you that this cruise exceeded our expectations on all levels.

There are several ways of seeing these Waterways, Water taxi probably most thorough but Dinner cruises, day trips, fishing trips are alternatives. We have spotted a pod of Dolphins and today spotted(all too briefly) two Manatee cloning up for Air.

We live a couple of blocks from the Intercoastal, and we like to go and sit and watch the boats. You get lucky and see marine life every so often.

Kind of neat to watch all the boats going out. It is a veritable water highway for those not from this area.....numerous bridges to navigate across to the beaches.
