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. **

My wife and I were staying at the Bahia Mar Doubletree in Fort Lauderdale. We caught the water taxi right next to were we were staying. What a wonderful, casual way to see the many sights of Fort Lauderdale. The only caveat is not to be in a hurry.

We rode the water taxi on the north bound journey and really enjoyed it. It was a nice cool and refreshing way to see Ft. Lauderdale!! I would highly recommend taking it. Next time we will take the south bound journey!! The guides tell you all about the area and who lives in the big houses. They even made a... More

We went to Fort Lauderdale from our hotel in Hollywood and it was great, a different way to see things. It was great seeing all the fancy boats and huge houses, we got off at a stop and had a wonder to the beach, stopped for a drink then headed back to Hollywood. The people working on the taxis were...

Absolutely great way to see the intracoastal waterway and the houses of the rich and famous. And wonderfully refreshing to be on the water, stop where you please, and get yourself home when you're ready!

Absolutely a must whether you are a visitor or a resident in Fort Lauderdale! Purchase an all day ticket and make sure you do the complete trip all through Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood. Get off in Hollywood and walk the broadwalk without having to worry about where to park your car :-))

Well worth the time and money. But... each boat has a different crew with different personalities. So hop on and hop off often.

Firstly I should say that the water taxi is a great way to get about and see a lot of the Fort Lauderdale area. To be fair we didn't really do it justice because it was our first day in Florida and purposely didn't want to overdo it. We were staying at the Doubletree Suite hotel by the Galleria Mall... More

We thought we could easily jump on and off at different stops along the way. You can, but it takes along time to get from one stop to the next. You have to transfer to another taxi to go to the Broadwalk in Hollywood. It would have been quicker to drive from Pompano Beach to Hollywood. It was informative and... More

What a fantastic way to get around and see the beautiful Intra Coastal and all the wonderful sights along the route! There are tourists.....but it's very casual so you don't feel "cattle car" ish~ ! The views are beyond spectacular and just seeing all the yachts and magnificent homes makes this worth while. Also~ there are plenty of places to... More
