The Lois Ann set sail yesterday around 7:30 into the zen waters of Fort Lauderdale’s Intercoastal for our Annual 4th Of July fireworks cruise. The waterways were alive with other patriotic boaters waiving the American flag and awaiting the fireworks to begin from Las Olas Blvd.
With about 40 guest, we setup our chairs on the top desk as well as the bow of the boat for a relaxing intercostal tour before the show. Our customers were extremely comfortable and ready to begin the tour.
Once underway, Captain David spoke on the homes of the rich and famous. Homes owned by celebrities, athletes and top businessman are just some of the scenery. Also multi-million dollar yachts were quite the sight as Port Everglades is a major stop for most yachts to get fuel, do maintenance or just enjoy the town during their travels around the world.
As the sun began to set, we worked our way to Las Olas Blvd and decided to stay in the intercoastal as the beach was a little too choppy for our taste. The Fort Lauderdale intercoastal offers great protection from the wind and always offers calm seas. This means there is no getting sea sick and it is much more enjoyable for everyone as the boat does not rock. Just a peaceful view of the best firework show in the country aboard our boat, The Lois Ann.
Our junior guest probably had the best time as we allowed them in the wheelhouse to help steer the boat. All our cruises are child friendly and we take extra special care of them.
Captain David even had his 1o month year old on board to enjoy the show. Little Ava, just like her father already has an eye for the water and you can tell she is going to have just as much passion as Captain David.
Once the fireworks began to go off around 9:00pm we positioned the boat perfectly without anchoring so that everyone on the boat had a great view. The show exceeded expectations and Fort Lauderdale was lit up. Our guest had their cameras ready and we got some great video as well.
Back at the dock, the vibe was very relaxed and all smiles. We all had a great time and it was an honor to spend our 4th of July with such great guests. I always say we have some of the best customers in the world and this cruise was just proof of that.
If you would like to go on our dinner cruise or intercoastal cruise, please give Captain David a call to book your adventure on one of the top boats in Fort Lauderdale, The Lois Ann.
