We took a boat tour through the waterway and really enjoyed viewing the homes of the filthy rich and not so famous. There are many million dollar plus yachts and cruise ships to see. I highly recommend visiting.

Lots of history and yachts. This is the water highway of the East coast. And especially in Fort Lauderdale it is where all the mega yachts and mega Mansions are located. Well worth the visit and a cruise here is a must!

We took a intercoastal trip just to relax on the enclosed water taxis! The intercoastal was great, travel guide was funny, and a inexpensive way to see great House's! We had a good time!

The sailing adventure was total fun! The water was very rough though. The ship captain offered to take us to a lagoon, and we should of accepted his offer. Snorkeling was impossible, and no fish were seen.
