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. **

The water taxi is a good way to see a lot of areas from Ft Lauderdale to Hollywood. Ride all day for 1 price and get off at as many stops as you'd like. I recommend starting early and be prepared for some waiting during the late afternoon - shift change, maybe? Four different types of boats from quite small... More

We found a coupon so we decided to try the water taxi for a day of sight seeing. The water taxi stopped at some iconic places and the driver spouted out some interesting and facts about some of the fancy homes along the waterway. I did not check the comments for accuracy but they were entertaining.

Beautiful homes and scenery along the water passage and convenient way to get to shopping or dining. The moonlight tour was awesome. Highly recommend taking the Water Taxi tours.

$75 per day for a family of 4 to hop on / hop off all day, the tour is "guided" with commentary during the journey - relevant houses / boats etc. are pointed out with relevant narrative. id recommend very highly. to compare we took a road taxi 2.5 miles that cost $20

This is an awesome way to be able to see the Intercostal waterway. This is not riding on the ocean. We started at Stop 1 downtown and took advantage of the garage parking where you can buy your Water Taxi tickets and pay $5 for all day parking due to deal with Water Taxi. You travel 10 minutes down "the... More

Definitely worth the money to enjoy both the water and tour the local canals of FLL. The taxi is fast and efficient. There are quite a few so you don't have to wait long either and what's more, is that you can meet others traveling around town. It's like a limo on the water without the perks! Fun for families...

The taxi is a great way to get around ft lauderdale but it seemed like most of the attractions advertised at each spot were restaurants. Most of our day was spent either waiting for a taxi or walking around trying to find something to do at each spot. Tickets are pricey so worth it if you spend all day riding... More
