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.

Private 4-Hour Inshore Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale

Private 4-Hour Inshore Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale

star-5
5
This Private Small Group 4-Hour Inshore Fishing Charter is perfect for those light tackle fishermen who prefer staying on the inshore waters, rather than going out to the deep sea. On our inshore fishing trips, we fish around the bridges, fish cleaning docks, jetties that line the inlet, mangrove trees and other spots that we like to fish. Target species are Jack Crevalle, Barracuda, Tarpon, Snook, Sharks, Goliath Grouper and more. We generally try to use light tackle to catch these fish. The nice thing about fishing the Intracoastal Waterway is that the ocean is always calm, even when it is windy, so you don’t have to worry about seasickness. While there is more variety to be caught fishing offshore Fort Lauderdale in the deep sea, there are many species that can only be caught in the shallow waters of the Intracoastal Waterway. Day trips tend to be best for action, night trips may lack in action but may yield the elusive silver king AKA tarpon.
