Pros:

Very cheap ($5/day, unlimited rides, $10/3 days)

Goes to most of the attractions

Most of the operators are pretty entertaining and provide the same commentary that a $20 tour would

Cons:

Not very fast - if you're in a hurry, take a cab

Frequently behind schedule

They didn't make the schedule with connecting from one taxi route to another in mind - when we had to connect, it was often faster to walk

Doesn't operate late night

Very nice. You can get off and on for just $5.00. If you are in a hurry do not take it. It wastes time, if you need it.

I would say it is a travel to see the sights, as a tourist. Not any means of transportation for timely appointments. It was fun, and entertaining. We jumped on at the Doubletree Hotel, and learned the last run is around 11:45 pm. from the Jungle Queen. We ended up taking a cab, which there were plenty.

ENJOY !

$5 per day will take you all over the Intercoastal. It is a fairly smoothe ride and some of them are air conditioned. You see the wealthy homes, marinas, yacht clubs amd Riverfront by Las Olas. You can stop at vaious restaurants, have lunch, and hop back on. If you are fortunate enough to take it during the boat shows, it will make additional stops for that. It really is a bargain.
