  1. Air Boating is Fun to bad we dont have that many rides like that in Fort Lauderdale, we do more jet ski rentals down here.

  2. The Black Sparrow Pirate Ship is actually really fun for kids and family’s, we told many of our visitors about that company, the way they built the Black Pearl is almost identical from the movie…

  3. Very nice list of boating and water-sports activities to do in Florida, we do enjoy Fort Lauderdale and its water ways with amazing sight seeing tours we usually tell people about to check out. Needles to say great travel information and well said.
