Heading South to Florida
If you are planning to spend a couple of days in Ft. Lauderdale and want to cruise the ICW check out www.watertaxi.com.
Ft. Lauderdale is called the Venice of the US and has too many dockside restaurants and bars to count. The water taxi stops at them all and can pick you up at Bahia-mar and drop you off anywhere on the ICW including New River. A Beneteau 473 might not be the best way to cruise the ICW.
Oh! by the way Shooters and Bootleggers is the most interesting place to be on Saturday or Sunday Afternoon. Just south of Oakland Park Bridge on the ICW.
