The Boat Show was on at this time and when it closed all the large $50m yaughts sailed past a site to see; the Waterway via taxi is a good viewing platform to see the mansions on the waterway.Just terrific

We went on a cruise around the mansions and it was amazing to see how the other people live! So many expensive homes with no-one around! You could spend days in all these waterways, it is a lovely setting!

Enjoyed the view of the many houses mansions and extravagant yachts as we moved along the intercostal waterway. The homes at times overly extravagant and arrogant but we're Great to look at and enjoy.

Marina gas is still over $3.00/gallon. Some of these yachts cost $10,000.00 or more to fill up. Lots of really cool watercraft. Steven Speilberg's yacht rents for $1M/week. Others.. not so much! I like 'em all.... wish I had one to play with.

We had a view on the Intracoastal Waterway from our balcony of our hotel and it was great. There was always something to see (yachts, boats, jet skis) and the sunset was awesome! Loved it.

It is the venice of Florida. Get a water taxi pass $22.00 for the day. Get on and off as much as you would like. It stops at a lot of great locations.

Great value at $22 for a whole day ticket where you can get on or off the water taxis as often as you want and they also deliver a commentary as you go pointing out the homes of the rich and famous.

This waterway features everything from opulent mansions to waterside dining and boating of all sorts from sailing to power yachting - or jet ski rentals. Take a dinner cruise aboard the venerable Jungle Queen or moor your own boat on a municipal ball near the Las Olas Bridge or in one of several fine marinas, including three city-operated facilities.

What a fun way to travel to various locations! How enjoyable! You are outside on a boat and able to see absolutely gorgeous homes of famous people enroute to your restaurant or other destination. Everyone seems to have a good time as it really is more than transportation!!
