Visited FLL two nights post-cruise. Stayed at the Hilton Marina. Despite what others might report, I think the price of a day pass is very reasonable for a service that provides both Transportation and a Narrated Tour of the waterway. Crews on the various vessels were always friendly and provided humorous commentary, and on several occasions during the day made... More

We came from a cruise and decided to spend most of the day on the water taxi, on and off, and the crew provided colorful and fun comments (Much appreciated for two first timers here). gave advice about food, and many stops were near/at restaurants. A good investment if you can spend the time, or have the need to bounce... More

If your going to be in Ft Lauderdale for the day - this would be my #1 recommendation (Family Friendly). The water taxi gives both locals and visitors a great perspective of Ft. Lauderdale. The ride on the water taxi is very relaxing and great way to visit Ft Lauderdale for the day. Free parking is available at the Galleria... More

You can pick up the water taxi at various locations on the inter coastal waterway. Go online and google it. Also there will be a telephone number to get info before you go. Ask what the fare is. I think after 5 pm the fare goes down to something reasonable. The trip shows off the beautiful properties along the inter... More

We took the taxi to Las Olas one afternoon for lunch. We were on the double decker. The captain and attendant made it fun with stories of who loved in what houses on the intercoastal.

We used the Fort Lauderdale water taxi several years already but this year I was shocked by the tremendous price inrease. Back in 2011 it was possible to buy a family ticket for $52 but this time they asked for $22 per person so $88 for a party of 4. No question it is a great opportunity to explore the... More

I took an evening trip while entertaining out of state visitors. It was as delightful trip with a very good tour guide, so yes I do recommend this for visitors or locals when visitors are in town.

The water taxi didn't stop at a regular stop one morning (company claimed they couldn't get into dock at hotel but there were many open docks). The lady on the phone was rather rude about it. Then we did take the taxi the next day. On the way back- taxi was fifteen minutes late, and then it broke down so... More

I highly recommend this for anyone that is coming from out of town. You get a completely different view of Ft. Lauderdale while cruising the inter coastal and learning about the owners of the various mansions and mega yachts you'll be passing by. For lack of a better reference it is like you are on a live taping of lifestyles... More

What a way to travel to Las Olas Blvd from A1A areas. Beautiful houses, yachts. Calm and quiet. You can stop and get on and off at any stop (Bathrooms available there). Good for strollers. Good for whole family, couples, solo. Get off have lunch or dinner then return.
