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. **

I only had a few hours to fit in some sights, what better way to do so than with the good folks at Water Taxi. I purchased a moonlight madness ticket, great value at $16 and spent the evening travelling the waterways. I only had time to do 2 routes but had a great time thanks to the wonderful and... More

This was a great way to travel to the beach and also to see billion/million dollar homes on the water and gain knowledge of the city. We were able to get on and off the taxi at the different stops with an all day pass.

We took it back and forth to dinner one night. There is a discounted fare after 5pm. The crew was great and they sell drinks for $5. Great margarita. Our trip was from Bahia Mar to the end of the line north. You see a lot of the super yachts which are moored in the inland water way and the... More

All you need to do is just sit back and enjoy the scenery. Noisy person at first but the last of the trip was great.

Picked up the water taxi and did a "tour" getting off at stop 4 for drinks and then stop 11 for dinner at Riverside a restaurant. A great way to get around.

The water taxi is great! We loved all of the info we received on the ride about the beautiful houses & yachts on the Marina. We stayed at the Hilton Marina so it was very convenient to have the stop at our hotel. We will definitely be using the water taxi again during our future stays while in Ft. Lauderdale.

Bought tickets through Expedia a couple of days ahead. Now the day is ending and we are in need of dinner with time running out. Used Water Taxi for twilight tour to restaurant and romantic trip back to our car via the 10 pm Water Taxi from Shooters.

Price is very reasonable and can travel all day getting on and off as you wish. Narratives are very good. Seats a bit on the hard side. Best are the big double decker boats with bar and bathroom for a long leisurely cruise.

The taxi schedule is kind of a suggestion on the times of arrival. So you need to be a little patient. The price if you ride from 5pm and after is less and that was good for us as we used it to travel up to Shooters for dinner. The ride is very nice and you can check out all... More

things to do is ride the Water Taxi! Nothing like seeing Fort Lauderdale from "the other side"! Love when the Captains give bits of fact (or fiction!) - makes the trip so much fun and very interesting. It's a must do!!
