You will see a lot of mansions and yacht's of some rich people and famous names you might recognize from TV, music, business, etc... It is great for people visiting Ft Lauderdale for the first time. Many places to eat and drink along the intercoastal.

Had a great day on the water taxi for $26 great comedy from the captain and his assistant. The taxi gives you access to the Galleria shopping mall as well as all the attractions on Las Olas Boulevard.

The water taxi is a great way of exploring Ft Lauderdale by boat. Its like a mini excursion to see all the yachts and mansions along the way. There are plenty of stops and restaurants to check out.

We took a paddle steamer on the waterways and stayed at the Pillars Hotel on the Intercoastal. The boat ride was good fun, informative and well worth doing.

The kids did not have to twist my arm to rent a boat to puddle around the Intracoastal waterway! We had a sunny day and balmy breezes. We could go up the channels and scope out all the lovely homes and yachts. We did some fishing too! We used Splash Watersports

We now own a condo directly on the IC, and enjoy coming down to our pool with a cocktail and watching the sunsets and boats go by each day.
