The intercostal waterways have so much to offer. Mansions and yachts line the waterways with each one more spectacular than the last. We docked the boat and ate at a few restaurants along the way. It's amazing hue far you can go. At night it is even more magical with all the lights. I never realized that the intercostal had... More

The scenery was the best, and the Area was just jaw dropping. Sit back and take a boat, thru the waterway. They will explain everything. It will be a very relaxing time, and you will see houses that will blow you mind

The charge is different between daytime and nighttime but it is well worth the money. Traveled in both directions because pass is good for the entire day. We stopped at shopping center, had lunch and then returned at night to see all the properties lit up at night. The captain had some fascinating stories (not sure if they were true... More

An engineering feat by the US Army Corp of Engineers in itself, the Intracoastal Waterway now hosts an even greater show in the mansions, hotels, parks, yachts and restaurants that draw the crowds to Ft. Lauderdale. The water taxis are the best way to see everything with guides that delight in pointing out the homes of the rich and the... More

Multi-million dollar yachts to kayaks, there's something for everyone on the intracoastal. Locals love to watch the annual Boat Parade every fall; a parade of boats lit up and decorated gliding by, many with celebrities aboard. Then there's always the joy of taking a water taxi to your favorite restaurant. And if you have a friend with a boat, get... More

The taxi is $26 each adult and by far the nicest way to get around to the various areas in Fort Lauderdale. We used the system extensively and enjoyed seeing the multi million $$ homes and super yachts . If you are in FL for a day dont miss it.

Very Relaxing. Nice commentary. It cost us $21.00 each and we got on and off ship starting at 17th steer bridge on Friday January 16th,2015. Water was calm, everything you needed was on ship

The waterway is the back yard for many of the most exquisite and expensive homes in the area. The street view of these homes usually consists of hedges and locked gates. From the water the views are much different. The homes are built so the views of the water are unobstructed. That means spectacular views from the water. Any tour... More
