Take the Water Taxi to explore Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood from the water! Your ticket allows all-day on and off at 16 stops, and savings at restaurants and attractions at each stop. The Water Taxi is not be the fastest way to get around, but the views from the water and our friendly crew are worth the trip. **Important note: Do not go to the office location as it is just the business office and Water Taxis do not pick up at the business office. **

We jumped on the Water Taxi on our first day in Fort Lauderdale and a great experience. Smooth ride, on the water, enjoying the sun and the water, along with great comments from our onboard guide. Highly recommend it.

See the homes and yachts of the rich and famous while resting comfortably in a boat. Lots of anecdotal information to pass on to family and friends. Get off at Shooters and enjoy a drink, then hop back for a trip to the New River as it meanders in and out near Las Olas Boulevard. Get out again to stroll... More

They have 11 stops along the waterway where you can hop on and off at will. They explain what each stop has (ie: shopping, restaurants, walking trails, etc). The captain sells tickets at each stop for those that are getting on at a first stop. Neat way to see the sights.

Easy way to get around the harbor. We really enjoyed viewing the homes and large yachts on the harbor. Got off and had a late afternoon snack at one of the many restaurants on the harbor.

Knowledgeable staff, some of crews more lively and informative than others, but very enjoyable to view Ft. Lauderdale in a different way. The whistle stops were such a plus to us because there was one at Seville St. And our hotel was only a block away. A life saver after a whole day on and off the water taxi. Thank... More

Our first outing on the water taxi was outstanding. I assumed that the funny and informative commentary was the norm. Unfortunately, future trips were not well narrated. It is still a good way to travel and see sites on the intercoastal, but I wish the crews were all informative and consistent. I referred people to take the trip, promising them... More

Excellent way to visit Fort Lauderdale from the water side, you can buy a weekly or daily pass and enjoy all the attracations along the water. Highly recommended!

Beautiful scenery and we enjoyed being able to bring some cans of beers on for the ride. But if you are pressed for time, skip it! We took from Hollywood to Las Olas, Ft. Lauderdale. First the stop to return to Hollywood from Las Olas had change of captains, then the stop from the Hilton was half hour delayed, then... More

We loved spending the day riding the water taxi around and seeing Ft. Lauderdale from a different perspective. We ate a lovely lunch at 15th Street Fisheries and enjoyed the scenic views of the spectacular homes sitting on the water. It was nice to hop on and off at our convenience. Spent all day riding around. We learned many things... More

We enjoyed seeing the waterfront mansions and all the yachts. It was nice to see how the other 1% live.
