Waterfront Dining in Fort Lauderdale

Most of our Fort Lauderdale dinner cruises start at the end of the New River, passing directly through the heart of the city. Take a leisurely river cruise on our bow, and experience downtown Fort Lauderdale’s nightlife and historic remnants. From there, enter Millionaires Row and explore the opulent scenery as we pass the most extravagant homes in America.

If opting for our private chef experience, we’ll head north and anchor at one of the many secluded lakes in the Intracoastal Waterway, building the most romantic dinner on a yacht in Fort Lauderdale. Once anchored, we’ll shut the engines off, allowing you to intake the quiet ambiance of the calm waters and starlit night sky. 

When ready, enter the cabin with your meal awaiting you, or step off the boat and into any of the Fort Lauderdale restaurants on the water. Enjoy an intimate evening with a private dinner cruise for two or an exciting night with friends and family. With endless options and first-class service, we can accommodate any desires.
