A little pricey if you don't intend to get on and off and ride all day but it is definitely fun to do! I love seeing all the muti-million dollar homes and all the yachts. The crew gives you a lot of info about the homes and the area. I highly recommend!

Good morning, I would like to apologize for the experience you had on the Water Taxi. While we always make every effort to maintain schedule, at times, factors such as vessel traffic, bridges, and passenger loads can cause a boat to run behind schedule. So that I can better address the situation, I would encourage you to call me so... More

If you only have a short stop this gives you a good flavour for city and you see some amazing boats and houses

If you're into water rides and architecture, you don't want to miss the water taxi. Besides the fact that you can have a drink and not have to drive home, you'll see some beautiful buildings and homes (up close and personal) that you'll never see from the road or the sidewalk.

As much as I didn't want to take it our group did. I actually enjoyed the ride. I wouldn't want to take it for too long but the stops they made were quick and easy. The tour guide was informative about some of the houses along the intracoastal. The only part I didn't like was waiting for the taxi to... More

The watertaxi costs 20 dollar per person and a one-way tour takes approximately 1,5 - 2 hours. Your ticket is valid for 24 hours. We loved seeing all the amazing houses along the waterside. A must!

Took the water taxi from Hollywood to Ft Lauderdale for a round trip. Had to pay when on the boat and was $100 for 2 adults and 3 kids 12,15 & 17. A little expensive for a family for a round trip ride. Should have planned it better but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

The Water Taxi is a great way to see cool sights along Florida's Intercoastal Waterway-- including famous houses, boats, and buildings. However, it would help if the Water Taxi crew would point them out! The first time I visited in Jan 2011, the crew was really good about pointing out and describing interesting sights -- even at night. I learned... More

We have utilized the Water Taxi now on our last two visits and have been very pleased! Not only is it a great way to see the sights of Ft Lauderdale, it's a convenient way to get around town as well. The Taxi has multiple drop-off points, conveniently located along the waterway at many popular spots/destinations. We never rent a... More
