listen to the talk as the driver is really funny - this is a hop on hop off boat so can be used to get to where you want to go - you pass the multi million dollar homes of movie stars etc. and also the yachts they own - calm water all the way

Nice tour. Great off at great locations. Staff was full of information. Tipping is suggested. On time as the schedule says.

If you only have a short stay in Fort Lauderdale, the Water Taxi is a great way to experience the waterways. You can go to the beach in the afternoon and hop back on to go downtown in the evening. It is a great mode of transportation and an experience all to itself!

The Water Taxi is more like a bus on the intercostal waterways with stops, schedules and transfer possibilities.

We took a fun and interesting boat ride to see the expensive homes and yachts in the area. It was a great way to learn about the area and it was fun to see how the other half lives.

Great relaxing experience. The boat operators were funny, keeping the kids entertained, and it was so relaxing. I think I might have fallen asleep. It was great!

Very interesting and good value - boats don't always run to schedule, beware! Acts as an excellent way to get around and see some quite amazing boats and houses
