$30 for a Two-Hour Gondola Cruise for Two ($60 Value)

For the Ft. Lauderdale cruise, up to six passengers load into Gondolas West's luxury motorboat to explore the serene canals along the New River and Intracoastal Waterway. Groups might spy a variety of animals, such as dolphins or birds, and the knowledgeable captain will answer questions and share stories about the area. Cruises depart daily from the Bahia Mar Hotel at 10 a.m., 12:30, p.m., and 3 p.m.

Gondolas West

Aboard Gondolas West’s 22-foot boat, you may notice a strange sound coming from the vessel: silence. That’s because the boat is electric, and its burble-free ride allows captain Chris McCoy to get his passengers up close and personal with the wildlife that inhabits Fort Lauderdale’s aquatic ecosystem. His tours explore the narrower waterways around the city, many of which prove too tiny for larger boats and vacationing humpback whales to navigate. Whether a two-hour voyage, sunset cruise, or private tour, the enthusiastic captain narrates each trek, regaling passengers with city history and information about the wildlife and ecology of the area. In the interest of preserving that delicate ecology, the electric boat produces zero emissions and leaves no footprints, handprints, or paw prints on the environment.

Reviews

I loved hearing some of the great stories about the city and some of the mega mansions of the city.

Unlike many of the other excursion boats we passed in the main canals, we were able to venture into areas they couldn't.
