At Fort Lauderdale Stand Up Paddle, owner Tatiana Lovechenko and her team of seasoned instructors guide patrons through informative lessons and scenic tours. Atop the glistening tides of the Florida coast, private coaching sessions equip students with the basic skills important to staying above the water but below the reach of birds' hairbrushes. Teachers also sling essential tips regarding ocean awareness and paddle-boarding etiquette, preparing pupils for apropos small talk with gregarious krakens.
Segway Fort Lauderdale owner Johnathan Rosen views Segways as about as simple to get the hang of as walking (he's seen clients ages 5 to 92 master them). On these jaunts of Fort Lauderdale, groups roll through scenic areas, visit piers, and take optional jaunts down back alleys. There, they can try out their Segways' top speed?roughly 12.5 mph, about as fast as a cheetah wearing substantial ankle weights. As participants roll along, guides can share tidbits about the comings and goings of area celebrities in the area and the Segway's history. There's also plenty of time for participants to talk amongst themselves while a company photographer snaps complimentary action shots.
Imagine a party on a bicycle built for 15, and you've got yourself a Cycle Party. The large, pedal-powered land-craft seats up to 15 passengers (10 pedalers, 5 coasters) that wheel their way around the Las Olas/Downtown Fort Lauderdale area. A trained company driver operates the steering wheel and brakes during the two-hour minimum outing, while riders listen to music and come up with the agenda for the night. The vehicle often hits the streets for Cycle Party pub-crawls, which takes groups around to 3 participating restaurants and bars. During these 20-minute stopovers, guests can flash their VIP wristbands for access to drink specials, and to avoid lines and cover charges.
