Originally a fort built by the U.S. Army in 1838, during the Second Seminole War, Ft. Lauderdale has little left of its warlike past. Instead the city welcomes visitors with broad beaches and an easy pace of life, plus convenient air and water connections that make the city a perfect place to visit.

Grand Turk

Grand Turk is a small island located at the end of the Bahamas chain. It is about 7 miles long and 2 miles wide. The Island and beaches are absolutely stunning and the people some of the friendliest and helpful people you will ever meet. The Island is virtually crime free and totally safe to wander any time of the day or night. Grand Turk is not a 'glitzy' Island. The evening's entertainment is typically a good meal taken at some of the best restaurants you can find (such as Calico Jacks), friendly and cosy Pubs like 'Bonney & Reads', and frequent live local music in the Hotel gardens. There is a Disco on the Island and this is highly rated by visitors and locals alike. It is however situated away from the Hotels and does not spoil anyone's quiet enjoyment of the balmy Caribbean evenings.

Panama Canal

Linking the Atlantic to the Pacific, the Panama Canal provides one of cruising's most unforgettable experiences. Over 10 years were needed to complete the canal's 51 miles in 1914 - so avoiding the lengthy and often dangerous voyage around Cape Horn. 'The Big Ditch' lifts vessels by a fascinating feat of mechanics aided by on-shore 'mule' locomotives through three great locks, traversing man-made lakes, channels blasted through rock, and the dense jungle. Two other special highlights of the canal are Gatun Lake and the Gaillard cut. Gatun Lake is one of the world's largest man-made lakes covering 163 square miles. Gaillard Cut is an 8 mile channel built through solid rock which was the most difficult excavation in the canal construction.
