Albeit, it is a water taxi, the drivers are very knowledgeable, funny and interesting and they keep you informed the entire trip. A great way to learn some of the local history and see how the very rich and famous live.

Twenty bucks per person??? Vancouver offers a similar service: the charge is less than two bucks. These prices amount to nothing more than gouging unsuspecting tourists.

This is not your average water taxi! If you take the taxi to downtown you will be amazed by the tour of all the mansions knows as Millionaire Row. The guides will tell you all about it and it is really a cool experience. The service is great and if you go on the double decker, they even have a... More

We really enjoyed the water taxi. It was amazing to see how the other half live! The operator gave a narrative as we rode along the canals and waterways of Fort Lauderdale. Although you can get on and off as much as you'd like, we enjoyed just riding it through from beginning to end.

It's an inexpensive way to see different parts of Ft Lauderdale. The commentary isn't very good, but the beautiful views of some of the most amazing houses one will ever see make this a great trip! You can get off at different spots if you want to check out different parts of Ft Lauderdale. I recommend getting of at the... More

The water taxi is a fun way of getting around and see some of the sites around the marina it's convenient and easy but not that cheap, but it is something everyone should experience the commentary gets a bit boring as all staff tell the same jokes and stories they need to varied a little more.

We loved the water taxi and all the sights we were able to see because of it. It was difficult to find our first place to get on, but once we found it, all others were easy. We got off at different stops and got to see a lot more of Fort Lauderdale this way. Also, we found out where... More

It's such a shame. This is truly a great way to see Fort Lauderdale, and the fact that you can just hop on and off for a day is the best. But the commentary. Yuk! is the politest way I can describe it. It appeared that staff were obsessed with knowing - and telling - exactly how much everything cost... More

We had one day to see and Fort Lauderdale. Chose the water taxi. Perfect choice. Guides were great. Loved the narration in the afternoon. Mansions. Anecdotes. Got on at stop 8 went up to 1. Shopped, ate lunch, went to a music festival. Found out you can carry open alcohol on boat. Bonus! All in all....great day.
