Thanks to Raul of the W Hotel we has a chance to spend some time on the water taxi in Fort Lauderdale. What a wonderful experience! The staff was not only friendly, but very informative and funny. We experienced two different routes each with enjoyable stops and local information. I would highly suggest this as a mode of transportation as... More

Great way to see how and where the wealthy people of Fort Lauderdale live. The captain and first mate on the first taxi we were on were a great double act telling tales of who lived where and how houses were used in films. Well worth the $22 each. Highly recommend this trip. You are able to ride on various... More

We live in Fort Lauderdale for two years and had never taken the water taxi. Yesterday my wife and I tried it out. It beat our expectations! The service is punctual and the staff is great. We took two different boats and both were equally enjoyable. However, Steve stands out as a great tour guide. He gave us all kinds... More

We were kicked off our taxi because we tried to use only our e-voucher!!!!! We purchased our tickets online. The instructions state to print the voucher but we read only "e-voucher", which we have used at many other events. So, that assumption got us kicked off the boat at a nonstop location and told to catch the trolley to our... More

The water taxi was a great time. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and provided great information as we toured the waterway. We rode several different boats and Most of the staff were very pleasant with the exception of one.

We spent about 4 hours on the water taxi one night. Very relaxing and entertaining. We took a small taxi to dinner then hopped on a double Decker the rest of the night. My kids loved the double Decker.

My kids and I used it for lunch and shopping on Las Olas. Great narration of the homes in the area. Had such a great time and knew my mom and my friend would enjoy a late night cruise so I went home and brought them with me at 8pm. It was nice except they didn't talk much about the... More

I would highly recomment the Water Taxi. It is not only a great mode of transportation, but they offer very interesting sighting seeing tips. They told us who own the beautiful homes and how much the expensive yachts cost. The ride is very relaxing and the drivers are very friendly.
