Enjoy the Venice of America: Fort Lauderdale

Legendary Fort Lauderdale, located on the southeast coast of the State of Florida, is known as the “Venice of America” due to the more than 300 miles of inland canals that remind residents and tourist alike of that magical city in Italy.  The city blends downtown urban structures with amazing, high-end residences with waterfront dining and night clubs mixed in for good measure.

This unique and rich city is best viewed by boat as you wind through the waterways with tropical breezes keeping you refreshed. Fort Lauderdale is a nexus for boating. The city is a major yachting center and everywhere you go, it seems like there is a never-ending parade of boats and huge yachts. It’s readily apparent why more than 42,000 yachts call Fort Lauderdale “home.” Fort Lauderdale certainly has the right to claim the title of “Boating Capital of the World.” We at Rentalboat.com are uniquely located and equipped to enable you to experience the Venice of America the way it was intended: By Boat.

You can take advantage of our newly-outfitted fleet of luxurious rental boats to tour Fort Lauderdale’s waterways and history in worry-free fashion. You simply show up, board the boat and enjoy your day or night. You then return to the dock, hand us the key and you’re done! No fuel dock to visit. No scrubbing the deck. Just get to the dock and jump in your car for the next stop on your Fort Lauderdale adventure.

If you’re unsure of how best to navigate and explore our beautiful city on the water, Rentalboat.com has experienced and U.S.C.G.-licensed captains ready to take the helm and show you everything that Fort Lauderdale has to offer – but on YOUR terms and YOUR schedule.

You can meander up and down the many canals to get a glimpse of luxury waterfront mansions or soaking up the history of a town that humbly began as a small pioneering settlement in the late 1800s. You can also take it easy and slide your rental boat up to the Sandbar to splash around with the locals.
