Intra Crusing

Fort Lauderdale is known at the Venice of America with over 300 miles intracoastal canals, rivers and waterways that meander through the everglades into the Atlantic. Surrounding the waterways are a labyrinth of islands, peninsulas and swaths of land that make-up the greater Fort Lauderdale area.

Our friend Don Wunder from Ogunquit & Fort Lauderdale invited us to a birthday party. Donny charted a 66 foot Hatteras yacht for a birthday bash for his partner Jim. The vessel came with a two man crew, bartender and a caterer.

It's a different view seeing Fort Lauderdale from a boat. It's quite an architectural tour to see mid-century homes next to behemoth mansions that line the intricate waterways. Highrises and cute 1950's Jeston apartment buildings are juxtaposed various building styles stretching the last 100 years.

Jim Invited 25 of his friends to a festive 5 hour cruise complete with open bar, and nice dinner catered by a local company. Weather was perfect, and the sites were amazing! Happy Birthday Jim!!!
