Private Boat Tours in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Explore the ‘Venice of the USA’ with a Sailo boat rental

With palm tree lined canals, millionaire’s mansions and some of the best game fishing in the world, Fort Lauderdale is just waiting to be discovered with a private charter on top-rated boat tours. 

It’s blessed with some of the most beautiful beachside vistas, year round summer weather, excellent fishing and plenty of culture to keep even the most demanding visitor content. Fort Lauderdale has everything that Miami has, but (whisper it), it might be even better… 

The canals and classical themed waterfront properties lend this town the nickname ‘the Venice of America’, and it’s easy to see why. What better way to see this splendid South Florida city than from the deck of your private Fort Lauderdale boat rental?


Top things to do in Fort Lauderdale when you are not on a boat tour

There’s so much to do in Fort Lauderdale that you’ll be hard pressed to cram it all in. We recommend heading to Las Olas beach to enjoy people watching, shopping and relaxing with a cool drink in the shade. If culture is your thing, there are plenty of museums and regular live music events throughout the year. Bonnet House museum and gardens is one of the top things to visit when you’re Fort Lauderdale. 


Millionaires mansions

The Intracoastal Waterway is dotted with some of the most palatial homes. Think of it as ‘Beverly Hills-on-sea’, with mansions and private yachts almost big enough to be cruise ships (also, yes, you can organise a private yacht rental of one of these boating behemoths with Sailo). Known as Millionaire’s Row, these dream homes are best viewed while boating, and with Sailo you’ll find an excellent choice of private Fort Lauderdale sailboat tours for a day of sightseeing.


Fishing trips

Another thing that Fort Lauderdale is well known for is it’s excellent fishing. With a private fishing boat rental in Fort Lauderdale, you’ll be able to head out into the ocean and see what you can reel in. It’s a game fishing paradise in South Florida, so if fishing is your thing, don’t miss an opportunity to go on the fishing trip of a lifetime!

Whatever your reasons for visiting Fort Lauderdale, a boating trip is an unmissable experience. From sightseeing Fort Lauderdale boat tours, fishing boat charters or sailing at sunset, take a look at Sailo’s selection of yacht charters ready to set sail.
