The water taxi is not only a good way to get around in Fort L but it's also a nice attraction itself. It guides the passangers through the Chanel offering some insights about the architecture and richness of the "poor" people that have to live in the neighborhood. The guides are really nice and sometimes even funny. the richness all... More

Excellent hop on hop off service and a great way to see a bit more of Ft Lauderdale (and see the amazing properties along the waterfront too). Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and love the celebrity titbits to entertain you.

Although we wanted to see Hollywood to Ft. Lauderdale from the water side, we were so fortunate to have gotten on Captain Steve and Sally's route! The scenery is beautiful....that's a given. What we didn't expect was the interesting and fun narration along the way. It really made our trip! They were both so helpful and accommodating. We will definitely... More

Great value to see the intercostal water way. After 5 pm it's more reasonably priced. Pay one price and get off and on.

This is the second time I use this operation. After a full day in which we enjoyed the canals, we went to Hollywood Beach and decided to get on the last scheduled boat at 910pm. Got to the stop B at 854 (scheduled stop at 910pm) and the boat left. They didn't pay attention to our screaming or light signals.... More

My boyfriend and I had an awesome experience in 2012 with the water taxi. When we returned to Lauderdale this past weekend we definitely wanted to do it again. I had family meet us from Jacksonville so I was sure it would be a pleasant experience. However, it was not. Milton was extremely rude when my aunt got motion sickness... More

There is no other way to really experience fort lauderdale, the venice of america, than by boat. and this is a very affordable way to do so. sometimes is a pain waiting for the boat, is more like a bus than a taxi, but is worth it at least one way either from the beach to las olas or vice... More

good way to get around and see Ft. Lauderdale from the water ways rather than the roadways- get off and on all day for one price without the hassle of the traffic !

Sunday 31st Aug. Let down by boats breaking down, and having to wait with little information about when replacements would be available. We were at stop 9 waiting for an hour, together with about a dozen other passengers

It is a tour and transportation. The seats can get uncomfortable so get off, walk around, and go back. It is pleasant and worth the cost.
