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 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 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.

Customer Reviews

The trip was a very pleasant and very peaceful, It is a low speed electric boat and you get the impression that you are drifting since you can not hear any motor. It has a full canopy so that it is not too hot even at midday. The 2 hour trip takes you through the canals in the harbor area with a close up view of the mansions and huge yachts.. Max passengers is 6 which the boat can accommodate very comfortably. The boat is brand new and everything is very clean. Chris, the captain, is most pleasant and friendly and has everything well organized. He leaves on time, supplies nonalcoholic beverages and fruit, is knowledgeable about boating, south Florida and wildlife. Highly recommended!
