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.

The 41-foot custom-built and tournament-ready Hatteras boasts a 15-foot beam, air-conditioned bridge, and refrigerators, as well as ample electronics for detecting fish and any ghost ships before they rise from the ocean. At this vessel's helm, Captain David pilots passengers armed with rods, tackle, and various types of bait out to distances of 2, 10, or up to 20 miles from shore on extended daytime and nighttime trips. Groups may hunt in search of small targets such as tuna, snapper, grouper, and mahi-mahi, or larger quarry such as broadbill swordfish and hammerhead or bull sharks.
