Our boats are NOT permitted/allowed to go to the ocean or Port Everglades. Fort Lauderdale has 165 miles of navigatable waterways to explore!

Reservations are strongly encouraged. Walk ins are welcome but we can not guarantee we will have a boat for you. Please call ahead to check availability.

How fast do the boats go?

Depends on a few factors. Rider weight and motor size. We have 2 different boats. The family cruiser will go 10 MPH max. The Mini-Powerboats can go up 20+ MPH. Keep in mind - just because the boat can go fast does not mean you can LEGALLY go fast. If you rent a Corvette, that doesn't mean you can legally go 100 MPH. Know your speed limits! There are also different speed limits for Manatee season, weekdays, weekends or holidays. You can NEVER go fast on weekends or holidays in Fort Lauderdale.

Where can I park?

We have metered parking for $3 per hour in front of the store. You may also choose to park one block south of the store along the street for FREE.
