The Yachting Capital of the World

Known by the locals as the “Venice of America,” Fort Lauderdale is built around endless canals, with over 300 miles of waterways connecting the Intracoastal Waterway, Atlantic Ocean, and Gulfstream waters. Winding canals, yachts, and multi-million dollar waterfront homes provide the backdrop for endless activities on the water. A hop-on, hop-off water taxi service makes it easy to get around the city in style, while authentic Venetian gondola tours glide guests through the glistening waters. Yachties cherish launching off from the area’s 100+ marinas for world-class sportfishing, or to scuba dive Fort Lauderdale’s lively coral reef systems. Every October, the highly anticipated Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is one of the biggest boat shows in the world, attracting over 100,000 yacht enthusiasts to celebrate the very best of waterfront living.
