Intracoastal Waterway, Fort Lauderdale

(1,800+ reviews on the web)
Water Body
A navigable inland waterway that runs 4,800 km (3,000 mi) along the Gulf and Atlantic coast, Intracoastal Waterway plays host to commercial and recreational vessels. Consider a boat tour--you can find excursions through the canals or swamp areas where ecosystems thrive. The waterway serves as a popular alternate when the seas are too rough for travel and also as a go-between for vessels on major U.S. rivers, like the Mississippi. To visit Intracoastal Waterway on your trip to Fort Lauderdale, use our Fort Lauderdale tourist route planner.
