Great water views and beautiful buildings

Some great water views of this waterway, lined with lots of tall and beautiful buildings and homes too. It's taken care of nicely.

This place offers nothing that a fast food restaurant cant offer. The only great thing was the watermelon lemonade which is awesome. The food is garbage so stay away, especially with the other food choice near byl

We have taken this shore excursion three times before, this time they canceled it on us due lack of booking from our cruise ship. We need to kill a lot of time as our ship always gets in early and we leave late in the afternoon on our flight home. But it has always been a lot of fun and... More

A really nice sailing route, especially due to the no wake zone thru most of the river. At night, we got to see the xmas lights illuminated. Some really great restaurants along the route as well.

don't get stuck on the bridge; they go up every hour and you can get trapped on the wrong side. It is great to watch all matter of shipping-many of them quite close to the shore. I wasn't able to discern exactly what type-maybe oil drilling or harvesting sand.

Traveling the ICW is a great time the first time. After that it is a slow way to travel. Great for seeing all the megayachts, and villas, Iguanas.

What a gorgeous and unique experience! We took the Water Taxi up and down the Intracoastal for most of the day. You will experience everything from multi-million dollar homes and yachts to great places to stop and have a bite to eat or a drink. Talk about scenery!! We also managed to score the double-decker boat which has a bar.... More

When you travel on the water you will experience so much more than from land. You will see all these fantastic houses and big boats. There are several options to travel on the water. We used water taxi that we thought was very unorganized.
