It's a fun way to see gorgeous homes along a beautiful waterway. You can do it with the Water Taxi, the Paddlewheel Queen or a variety of tourist boats, your own boat or renting a boat or watercraft.

The water taxi's are the best way to see the intracoastal. And you will certainly see the best of what money can buy.

There is nothing bad to say about our entire stay in the hotelThe people at the front desk were extremely helpful and the room service was exceptional. There was no dust anywhere and the bathrooms were extremely clean. We were on top of the airline and yet we did not hear any planes at all. We would definitely stay in... More

We had a free day prior to our cruise ship departure. Ended up by spending a goodly chunk of it on a water taxi of all things! Now understand why F.L. is called the Venice of North America.

The Water Taxi is the best bargain for those on a short turn around in Ft Lauderdale. We had a day waiting for our cruise ship and the all day hop on/off pass was perfect. Very timely because the International Boat Show was just tuning up and the mega yachts were racked and stacked along the waterway. Skippers of the... More

I didn't have a boat, but I still kind of liked the idea of having pathways for boats to get around. If you love to see boats, you'll see them in all shapes and sizes. If you have access to a boat, you'll love it even more. To be honest though, there aren't many places to cross so it makes... More

Something new around every bend! Anytime you are on the water it changes and you never know what will swim or cruise by you.

Had a great day on the boat taxi, it stops at different stops and you just hop on and off wherever. We had an all day ticket and saw most of the sights.
