The boat is not intended for navigation. It cannot be driven by clients. We carry small engines for purposes of maintenance only.
If you plan on doing activities in and around Ft Lauderdale, you probably do not need a car. A lot of local attractions are a short to moderate walking distance. Cabs and rideshares are popular options.
Limited parking is available around the building lot. There are also a few free parking spots available where the canal abuts the road at a short distance from the boat. (Review signs and park at your own discretion)
Please walk on the lot towards the two story houseboat. Please proceed with caution if you choose to walk on the seawall as there are obstacles like docking cleats. If you choose to walk through the lot, walk closer to the seawall. Steps will take you to the seawall and you can cross into the boat. Beware of tides – low tides mean the boat is furthest away. You can use the on-board stairwell or the step to get inside the boat. If it is high tide, you won’t need either the stairwell or the step on the boat. Please exercise caution while getting on and off the boat. Travel with judicious luggage (preferably duffel bags / back packs / smaller suitcases).
Travel light and perhaps with duffel bags/ small suitcases. Please proceed with caution if you need to get on and off the boat during tidal variations. No climbing on ledges. Plan on bringing beach wear, beach towels, sun block, insect spray. Plenty of marine and park activities are available. In winter, it would probably be useful to carry a light jacket and may be warm pajamas for those odd days when the temperature goes down.
There are restaurants and stores with a mile. You need to walk down the street and turn right on the main road.
There are a couple of laundry facilities within a three mile radius.
