We enjoyed the trip as much as reaching our destinations along the intercoastal waterway. The cost was $22pp so you don't want to do this for just one stop someplace, but we used it for most of the day as we took the 'whole' trip and stopped at only a few spots along the way.

My wife and I used this service as a convenient means to visit the tourist spots in Fort Lauderdale. We were only there for 1 full day before going on a cruise. It was fun to travel on this boat but for $22 per adult you will need to judge whether the cost is worth it. What made this experience... More

Ride all day (on & off) for about $20.00/pp. Really nice tour of Intercoastal waterway passing many elegant homes, restaurants and lots of yachts. Spend the day touring and shopping, maybe even doing a pub-crawl for those young at heart. We did all-day of restaurant stops and really enjoyed viewing the homes and yachts!

We had a day to kill in Ft Lauderdale after our cruise and we decided to ride the water taxi and see a bit of Ft Lauderdale. We are so glad we did as it was very enjoyable. We boarded the water taxi at the base of the 17th street bridge. It was $22 each for an all day ticket,... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience of the Water Taxi in fort Lauderdale. We travelled to the Galleria Mall, the beach and even went to a restaurant for dinner later that evening. The hospitality of captain and mate as well as the informative observations made our visit to Fort Lauderdale a positive experience.

This is a great way to see the area. You can park at the Galleria Mall for free and pick it up at the Hotel across the street. It stops at many great shopping and dinning locations. Also a few stops near the beach. You can get on and off all day for $22.00 for an adult. It runs till... More

If you are visiting ft lauderdale be sure to take this ride. My wife and I took the water taxi to dinner and then back to our hotel. It was around Christmas time when these enormous waterfront houses were lit up for holidays. Between that and cruising in between some of the largest yachts in the country...lot of fun. Our... More

We have cruised the Fort Lauderdale, Florida Water Taxi from North Fort Lauderdale Beach down to Hollywood for lunch at Taco Beach, cruised back up to Las Olas for dinner and drinks, and then back home. While cruising the crew tells nice stories about the beautiful homes, the famous residents and great historical facts about areas. The purchase of a... More

At $22 for a whole day hop on hop off ticket it is excellent value and each taxi has a captain and mate who will give a fun and informative commentary.

Don't misinterpret the heading. The Water Taxi is a great thing! Transportation coupled with a narrator. We had a few hours to kill before heading to the airport and were told about the Water Taxi. It stops any number of places and you can get on or off whenever, wherever you like for shopping, dining, whatever. While on board, the... More
