Starting out at stop 11 and ending up at stop one takes about a hour.Have taken the taxi every year since coming to Fort Lauderdale.This time my friends and I were very disappointed as we were shuttled from River Walk. We waited over a hour for a water taxi to pick us up. What was so upsetting was a taxi... More

Wonderful views of Ft. Lauderdale from the water, motoring along the intracoastal canal. The boat has two levels; best views are on the second level. Great sights of Ft. Lauderdale along the canal from Oakland Park Blvd. down to the entrance to New River. Enormous mansions and homes to see. The sights and the time on the canal would have... More

As they explain this is not really a water taxi service. But a really good tour by boat. The commentaries provided are excellent but if you hop on and off enough the details are inconsistent. But we didnt care as the delivery was so good we didn't mind that some facts were not borne out by Googling them once back... More

This was definitely value for money ($26 or $21 for seniors). We just didn't have time to use it to the full extent - you can happily use it for a full day's entertainment. It's a trip by water to all the interesting places in Ft Lauderdale that are on the water. You just get on and off wherever you... More

26$ ticket gives you whole day on their boats. Lots of different stops, if you wanna eat or shop for awhile or if you wanna go to your hotel. Absolutely the best way to see those stunning houses and mansion, not to mention those dozens mega yachts, including Steven Spielberg's! Worth every penny and don't forget your camera!

We parked in Riverfront and purchased tickets in the garage - very convenient and they discounted parking to $5 all day/night!!! Water taxi was great - perfect weather, not a long wait at any stop.. just ask the first boat when to expect the next and you're good to go!

Let me start by explaining what the taxi is as I was confused when originally looking at the brochure and other reviews. The water taxi basically takes you on a tour up and down the river in Ft Lauderdale where many of the super rich live. These are the top 1% of income earners. Amazing houses and yachts and the...

What a wonderful day spent on the intercostal with my mother and sister. We hopped on the water taxi in Hollywood Florida near the bistro bakery around noon. The all day on -off pass was worth it. We rode all the way to Las Olas blvd in fort Lauderdale . This is more like an all day excursion that you... More

The one day, on-off pass is $26 and worth it! We boarded the Water Taxi near Las Olas & the Intercoastal Waterway. There is an all day parking lot for $7 nearby. The water taxi was on time, clean & the Captain and Mate provided interesting and fun facts along the way! You can bring snacks for kids or wine... More
