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. **

Great way to get around and see amazing homes and million dollar yachts on intercostal waterway. Boat operators are very knowledgable and humorous . We rode the boat all day getting on and off at various stops and rode back at night with lights on in the homes and yachts which was very picturesque.A good value.

this is a great value. one of the most convenient ways to get around Ft. Lauderdale. The stops are set about the area to allow you time to get off and go do your business. There are several branches of the taxi so you can see the entire area. Just get off and transfer to the other route. You can... More

Water taxi is a good way to see the Ft. Lauderdale canal system, be amazed at the lavish multi-million dollar homes, multi-million dollar yachts and some nice waterfront restaurants. Finding the parking lot that is associated with this attraction is difficult but there are plenty of those around in approximately same price range. The tickets can be purchased on the... More

Picked up the taxi on the North side by our hotel and rode throughout the day. Took advantage of the multiple stops to explore different areas and restaurants. Traveling the water way allows for great sight seeing of houses and yachts. The conductors of the taxi talk about the area as you ride, but each boat/conductor says the same things.... More

Easy to use, interesting and obviously aimed solely at tourists. Expensive, $26 per person per day. Some of the guides were hilarious! Holiday treat.

Traveling with 3 girls, ages 10, 16, and 17 - the water taxi experience was an unexpected bonus. Not only did we get to see things we never have seen, we got a narrated explanation for many of the homes/yachts and history of the area. All the staff were friendly and professional. We originally sought out this mode of transportation... More

I was surprised when visit Fort Lauderdale and find out the water taxi. You can stay in the water taxi and go around to see Ft Lauderdale with network of small lake like Venice. The driver also present the landmarks of the city In the warm day with the breeze it is a romantic ride with your love one

A little pricey, but a great way to get around Ft Lauderdale if visiting. Ticket is good all day and you can get on and off at any of about 13 stops. Taxi's came by each location about every 25 minutes so never had a long wait. Runs all day and until after dinner time. It is not a tour... More
