BOATING

Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Yachting Capital of the World”. The area is home to over 40,000 yachts. With more than 300 miles of navigable inland waterways that wind through a variety of neighborhoods, there are many places to go and lots of things to see by boat. For a bit more adventure, the gorgeous blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean can be only minutes away via the Intracoastal Waterway.
