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 Watertaxi is a fantastic way to see the intracoastal waterway and the canals in Fort Lauderdale. The houses and the yachts are integral to Fort Lauderdale and really add to the beauty of the city, and this is a brilliant way to see them. If you can time it for sunset, so much the better! Naming it a 'taxi'... More

If you have not been on a Water Taxi you have not seen Fort Lauderdale. At least twice a year when visiting my sister, we take a day cruising on the Water Taxi and we just love it. We love to see the mansions on the canal and the big yachts, some bigger than houses. We have our favorite stops... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience on the water taxi in Ft. Lauderdale. We were there at the end of the International Boat Show - with over 5 Billion in water craft. They had a special on the taxi - $10 return to Las Olas downtown Ft. Lauderdale. The pilot of the water taxi provided an interesting and funny commentary on... More

The water taxi is a great way to see the homes of the famous and infamous. All day ticket is $22.00 and you can get off at a particular spot and return later with the ticket. Although not technically not a tour boat, depending on your crew you will be entertained by a member as to the history of the... More

We hopped on the taxi on the north route at the Birch State Park at about 10:30 am and off at nearly 8 pm at the Seville Street whistle stop. While we got off twice to explore neighborhoods, we did spend about 3 hours in total on the boats. The narrative was entertaining but got repetitive when the captains were... More

For a little over $20 you get to hop on hop off all day long, basically a good long pub-crawl. Make sure you use the vouchers the crew give you onboard for participating restaurants and bars.
