Gondola Rides in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

During the real estate boom of the 1920s, developer Charles G. Rodes was instrumental in creating many of the area's canals. Rodes studied the parallel canal system in Venice, Italy and applied it here. Using a technique called "finger islanding," he altered strips of land with channels of water to create waterfront property that would also afford residents a bit of privacy. Rodes named his development of peninsulas the "Isles of Venice."

Today with more than 300 miles of navigable inland waterways in the Great Fort Lauderdale area, and magnificent homes, imposing docks and beautiful yachts dotting the canals, the ara has earned its nickname, "The Venice of America."

A gondola ride in Fort Lauderdale could be an unforgettable experience realized by your group. An authentically dressed gondolier will relate to you the history of gondolas, facts about Venice and interesting stories of Fort Lauderdale. For your guests to experience this, it's your decision.


The Gondolier has a personality and flair of his own and will provide you with the type of tour and conversation that best suits your event. Your gondolier is committed to your safety as well as guiding and telling you interesting stories and playing music.
