Fun - The girls working there were queens. They were so sweet and very helpful. We were running late and they still helped to make sure we would still have the reservation. It was super fun and the boat was very fast.

The best activity we did on our trip - We found this on trip advisor and luckily booked it ahead of time because it sold out and people that walked in without a reservation were turned away. We were able to take our little boat down the same channels as the big yachts. We saw the yachts, the parties on the yachts, the beautiful homes, the kayakers, etc. Driving the boat was really silly, engaging and fun and also felt very safe.

Joyment on the watee - This were the first time we had done this. Never knew that it was here in Ft Lauderdale. Riding up the inter-coust in your own renter motor boat was just grand. Never done this before but I will come back to do it again. To feel the power of the boat as you are in control. What a gift to share with anyone.

Good experience but go for a larger boat to just go cruising - The boats were fun, getting to see the homes and Yachts up close was great. The boats are a bit older but ran well. Parking is horrible, go park at the shopping center Parking lot one block over and walk to the place.

Powerboat rental - Well, it was definitely an experience we will never forget! After checking in and getting life jackets, a very nice gentleman helped us understand how to operate the boat. After casting off away from the dock, we saw beautiful mansions, villas and yachts. After passing a massive boat, we got air jumping its wake. Very exciting! On the way back, we had gotten lost but the map that the guide had given us was helpful, sort of. My wife’s boat shut off, twice. Not sure why but still a wonderful experience. While I understand that owning a store during Memorial Day weekend can be stressful, the owner kind of rushed us during the check in process. For some reason, we were charged $40 in addition to whatever else we signed up for and when we inquired as to what that charge was, he immediately subtracted it from our bill , saying he didn’t know how that charge got there. In any case, a nice experience for all.
